    Payment isn't needed, you can continue to use the forum as you did in the past. :D

    However, if you don't want to keep using a third party to upload your photos, you can pay an annual fee and upload straight to the forum. I guess the fee covers the cost of the storage space required to hold everyone's photos plus I would imagine it goes to the upkeep of the forum :)

    Yup, hosting doesn't come cheap so it just lets people who want to, contribute towards those costs. But, as Emily says, it's certainly not obligatory. Forum supporters get the added benefit of being able to directly upload photos, but you can still continue to use Photobucket etc like you historically have. Supporters also don't see the inline adverts.

    The adverts don't bother me much but there's no way for me to upgrade my membership so I just have to suck it up

    There only the PayPal or credit card option from what I can find out so not having either means i can't up grade. Its not s problem i just use a phone too. Due to thr nature of OHs job we have no internet conection at home.
