Why does no-one give an answer
I have been trying to find out why (not whether) it is necessary to first upload a picture to a hosting service before posting a link to that service when putting an image on BikeRadar. So far all I've been told is that is just the way it is. Despite trying various routes to get this information, I am still none the wiser. EBay, Gumtree, Preloved, Cycling Weekly, and numerous other other sites allow a direct upload, so why not you. Is there something in it for you to make things more complicated? Can someone just give me a straight answer, surely that's not asking an unreasonable question is it?
