Photobucket has decided to charge $399 a year for third party hosting so a majority of our photo links are dead. Is there a good and free alternative for image hosting?

I don't know about free, but I only pay $2 a month at Imageshack.

I recently switched to Flickr. It's free.

I don't have much stuff on there so have no idea of its limitations.

Thank you. I may have to look at those.

What is the best way to post some pics I have to share on this site.  I have used Photobucket, though I think they are difficult now.
Can you tell me what is the best way to do this?  Is it still from a hosting picture site, or can I download the photos, images from my desk top directly to the thread I want to post on here?

No, you still have to have your own web space/photo storage site. I like ImageShack. Many people use Facebook. Photobucket is worthless, unless you pay their $400 per year ransom.

imgur is free. It's what I use to post pics here.

Show Stats?

Under the Show Stats heading of one's Profile Information, there exists a table showing Most Popular Boards by Activity. Whose activity then? What activity? The table shown for me bears no resemblance whatsoever to my own board activity.

The stats are the board's stats, not yours. "Most Popular Boards by Activity" means those boards have the most people visiting them.

Not seeking help so much as general information.

I was noticing that I had just made my 6000th post and my "Rank" is Sergeant.  That made me look at ranks in general.  I supposed that members might be promoted when they reached some higher number like, say, 10,000 but saw that is not the case.  Longevity as a member also does not seem to be a determinant.

What are the various UMA Rank designations, and how are they determined?

Just curious.

You have to survive the gauntlet from “Theatre Of Blood” to get past Sergeant.....please submit pics of your dogs so I know how large a pie crust to prepare.

I wasn't seeking promotion - just clarification.

I’ve wondered about that myself.....looked into the same criteria you explored seeking the rhyme and reason. None there. I suggest a coup. You may not want promotion, but I do!!

Sergeant is the highest rank for members who aren't mods. Here's how many posts you need for the different ranks.

New Recruit = 0
Private First Class = 50
Specialist = 100
Corporal = 250
Sergeant = 500

There is also the "Wedgie" Ordeal, which is so controversial, it must be conducted in International Waters, and of course, the Crucible of Farts.

The old farts who can't even be bothered to come around to post should be stripped of their ranks.
