Those look great, loving the blue colours especially. I will look into the HTTP error thing.. i have switched off the IMGur hosting option on the forum as the photos that get uploaded get hosted by imgur and not my self thus they have the files and not my sever and i dont have access or the ability to backup any of the images. The issue with that is if imgur change anything or close up i lose all the images that have been posted on the forum (a bit like what imageshak did). If we carry on getting issues uploading images to the forum as 'attachments' as i have set now i will buy an account with someone that stores the images like imgur but i have complete access and rights to which lets me back them up etc.

Yeah, I've been on forums that have fallen victim to the photobucket fiasco. There are still people using it and posting them too, then just telling people to "get the hotfix", a browser extension that the odds are photobucket will block eventually. If a forum I'm a member of has an upload feature, I usually use it, as sometimes even I might do something like move my hosting and forget to move my images or something, leaving the forum with a bunch of red x's. I'm also a big believe in trying where possible to add at least 1 pic to a post if relevant, it just helps to break up the text and make things more interesting.
