Because we got tired of people deleting their pics, renaming the folders, moving the pics, etc., then we wouldn't have anything.Why are photobucket thumbnails not allowed on this site like they are on every other forum? They work everytime on other site's threads.
Then the poster is no longer a member, so you don't even have a way to contact them and ask them to fix the pictures.
Here's a perfect example: http://g503.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=22&t=87930
I work for a guy who is constantly asking me to research how to do stuff and I can not tell you how many forums have excellent writeups but the posters let their hosted images go and the entire thread becomes worthless. I'd say 80% of the forums I look at are worthless because anything older than 6 months is missing pictures.
By forcing users to put their pictures here, we have better control and much lower probability of this happening.
