Bren, it does look like you can upload a photo to the club's discord ("hosting the image") and use it on here. I wasn't sure last night, though do know that if you use a Private Facebook photo and try to copy onto a forum it won't work.

To copy a photo from Discord, and using a Mouse (I don't have a smart phone, so no idea how you'll do it), Right Click on the photo till a pop-up shows - select "copy image link"

which, when (Left Click on mouse, selecting) "Paste" onto a forum post will appear like this

attach this [ img ] at the start

and this [ /img ] at the end

(but without the gaps between the brackets and img or /img, I had to include those for the above example to be viewable as 'computer-speech')

and this is the result

Rimmer: "Aliens."

Lister: "Oh God, aliens... Your explanation for anything slightly peculiar is aliens, isn't it?

Rimmer: "Well, we didn't use it all, Lister. Who did?"

Lister: "Rimmer, aliens used our bog roll?"

Looks great with a very effective tripod mod.  My first thought on seeing these was 'where do I get them from ?'.   Must admit that I don't like the original 'shorter legged' variety of tripod but the extensions really make the same models pop.   Inspiring stuff.

I'd forgotten about these models, so had a "...oh yeah," moment when I first say the photos.

Same here. Maybe there'll have to be an optional 'extra tall' version of each tripod, with leg extensions, as a separate code?
