Anyone know why I can't see any of the pics on this thread and and some others? I'd love to see your work but only see a pic of a cat that says "no photos found click for photo" but that does nothing

I feel like I'm missing out on some amazing builds

Yes, because unfortunately picture hosting sites like Photobucket are now charging users to host their pictures. Anyone who hosted their pictures with sites like that before it cost money will have to pay in order for their pictures to be displayed again. It's very frustrating and I agree that a lot of good builds and resources on here are ruined because of it. For anyone wondering where to host their pictures, though, check out surfacezero.com/g503. It's G503's free site and works great.
