tinypic has had issues in the past..not sure what they were, embedded viruses or something? You need to use a site like Flickr or Photobucket

Well, the problem with those url shortcuts is no one can see where they take you.
It makes it possible for links to be posted that could take you somewhere you may not want to go.

Because of the risk to all of us who use this forum it was pretty much unanimous to not allow them.

If you do not want a link to show in a post just highlight a word, click the globe in the tool bar and paste the URL in the box..
When you do this and hover over the word the destination should show or you can right click and see the address in the properties.
