    How to post pictures on the forums
    1. Open https://imgur.com/ - you will archive your image(s) here.
    2. Upload your picture to Imgur - Click "New Post" at the top of the website. Then drag your pic onto the grey box (or use the browse button) to upload your picture to imgur.
    3. Copy the pic's link address - Once the pic is downloaded to imgur, hover the mouse over the downloaded pic and the link will appear in the upper right side of the pic. Click "copy" to copy the link.
    4. Insert the picture into your post - In your post, click the "image" icon on the toolbar to open the dialogue box, paste your pics' link into the box, and then add ".png" to the end of the address, then click "insert"
      For example:
      http://imgur.com/XcJ8ksk - link copied from imgur
      http://imgur.com/XcJ8ksk.png - link posted to get the pic to show up in the post
    5. To insert more pics, just repeat the steps above.
    6. Trouble shooting - If the pic is not showing up, then check the following:
      • Is the file extension correct? Try ".png" or ".jpg" or ".gif" or ".jpeg" or ".bmp"
      • Is the link correct? On Imgur, do not copy the pics' link from the web browser search box. Copy the link using the copy button that appears in the upper right side of the uploaded picture.

    Hello everybody. I made a change to the title of the thread (removed the version number) so that links to this thread will not break every time I change the version. If you previously added this thread to your favorites list or saved its link, please delete the old favorite/link and add a new one. This current thread title will remain permanent, so, from this time forward, links to here will continue to function.
    Thank you,
    Rinaldi

    Hello,
    I have been steadily updating this thread, but I don't bother "bumping" the thread when i update the original post, so when you visit, check the "recently added" section at the top of the link list.
    However, this time, I wanted to bring special attention to several new and very useful links that I have to added to the list in the last several weeks. Check them out:
    Thanks to those who compiled the references above.

    I thought this link-list needed some love, so I added some useful links & eliminated obsolete links.

    Can you add www.sotatraders.com to your list, under either Item Pricing or Crafting (the site handles both aspects).
