Why can’t we upload pictures from our computer on the Sims forum?

The process to upload own photos to show an example to me is unnecessary when other sites allows you to upload from your PC

    I never understood this. It's so complicated especially from a cellphone. I would post more pictures if not for that. I have to first upload them to another site and find the right link to copy and etc etc
    Zombies, oh please oh please give us zombies!! :'(

    I completely agree. I guess EA just doesn't want to pay for image hosting.

    I suspect it has to do with what people can upload that is inappropriate. With having a photo upload place in between, there is someone else helping with accountability.

    But it would be nice if we could upload directly! Unfortunately, they require that you give them a mobile phone number to make an account so that they can do "verification". That's not possible if you are a "landline" person like me with only an old flip phone for emergency only use.

    I know some forums do this because when you have a forum there is limited storage space without paying more. Any photos uploaded right to the forums are stored on that forums storage space. Photos uploaded elsewhere and then posted are not.

    Typically, that's what I use; but as of late, it is impossible to use on mobile. The BB Code option is no longer there, and if I pull it up as desktop site on my phone, it breaks. Imgur, in my opinion, despite the fact that many people flocked to it after Yahoo sold them to SmugMug, and they went to a subscription model; is more of a social media platform than hosting service. To me, Post Image is a little sketchy (gotta watch--they WILL try to stick advertising links in your links; which have to be deleted), but works. Most of the other forums I'm on have upload limits; as their hosting service has bandwidth limits for certain tiers. On one, we have to keep our photos under 1000x1000.

    Imgbb.com is a great alternative to imgur. I use it all the time and you don't even need an account. It works so easily.

    Thank you for this! It looks easy and it didn't require the dreaded "mobile phone" verification (which always means I can't use it.)
