    Ok. I'm going to invite ridicule
    How the fuck do you guys post songs from youtube on here ?
    And while I'm at it, how do you post pictures ?
    There was a time when I knew such things, but I've long forgotten

    No ridicule. :)

    For pictures, click the ‘image’ icon, the one that looks like a photo of mountains and the sun, just to the right of the smiley icon. Then paste in the URL of the image, and click ‘insert’. (Just remember to make sure it’s from a site you own, or a dedicated image hosting service.) It has to be the URL of the actual JPEG, GIF, PNG, etc, not the URL of the page where the image is located.

    For videos, click the ‘media’ icon, the one that looks like a film strip, just to the right of the image icon. Then paste in the URL from YouTube (or other supported site) and click ‘embed’. Note that although pictures will show in your editor box right away, videos will only show as the address until you post the message.

    That’s really all there is to it. HTH.

    Sorry, more questions
    What is the best image hosting site these days, I think tinypic and photobucket are being phased out are they not ?

    I used to use Photobucket until they got a case of H.U.A. They did change things back, except now they watermark if you embed your images to another site (i.e., Trek-BBS). I switched over to IMGUR. While it has its flaws, at least it doesn't watermark your stuff.

    I switched from Photobucket to IMGUR as well. It's pretty basic but it does what I need it to do. It's very easy to use. The only thing you need to remember is that, when posting to the BBS, you don't use the image icon; you just directly post the BB code into the post.

    I always use the image icon on Trek-BBS. You have to copy the Direct Link, not the Image Link, from IMGUR.

    I've never done it, but as @auntiehill said, you can copy the BBCode link from IMGUR and simply CTRL-V paste that into your text.

    Either way should work.

    I also switched from PB when they pulled their little stunt. (Wonder how that worked out for them, lol.) But I went with PostImage. It’s very, very basic, but it does what it needs to, and I haven’t felt the need to go anywhere else.

    There are a lot of hosting services out there. This question gets asked from time to time in QSF, so if you do a search there, you’ll probably find some other recommendations too.

    It's really not hard at all. The tricky part is uploading your image to the hosting site. Dropping the link here is easy.

    One new song deserves another:



    I just looked up the lyrics to this song. Freaking Hell, where did she come up with these lines?

    Here we go again in that same story
    We  followed love and typically we say "I'm sorry"
    ...
    I love you, but I don't like you
    The  simple truth is I can't do this, though I try to
    I love you, but I don't like you
    And I can't shut you out, so I'm shutting my mouth
    ...
    And every single thing you say is gonna start with you,
    And I'm exhausted from us talking through our friends
    And when you said "I don't care for you" it got worse
    We both know it isn't working but I still put you first
    ...
    We both refuse to lose
    We both refuse to choose the higher road
    ...
    Cause I love you, but I don't like you
    But I'll never despise you
    I just don't like you​

    It almost sounds like someone in an emotionally abusive relationship.
    A fifteen-year-old should not understand what that's like.

    Once Human -Paragon
    Really nice piece of dark poetry.

    Once Human -Paragon

    Hear, can you hear them coming?
    The voracious hounds surround.
    There's no sense running.
    No hiding out, they will hunt me down.
    Life worth living for the taste of fear.
    A trail of tears leads them near.
    Scents of my flesh ripping.
    But I'm still here.

    Excavate my earth, exhume my corpses.
    Parading your dismay of a face contorted.
    I lead them to rest, you attempt new life.
    To display your virtue, garner the eyes.
    Let it die, Let it die young
    Let it die young.

    Behind the glass, barricade yourself free.
    Strong in isolation, weak upon your feet.
    Reinvent yourself an effigy.
    Painted face, a guarded place to force your beliefs.
    Paragon, from a distance; You just play a part in your own fiction.
    Paragon, from a distance, You tell anyone who will listen.
    From afar, a quintessential being.
    Your façade is your existence.

    You dare not to swim in your salt and your sulfur
    High above the ruinous faults of your brothers.
    Give them something they can turn to, Human un-being.
    The world will look upon you and learn nothing.
    Nothing.

    Let the graves be graves.
    Let the graves, be graves.

    Are you searching for your life at their gallows?
    Are you searching for your light in their shadows?

    Paragon from a distance, You tell anyone who will listen.
    From afar, a quintessential being.
    Your façade is your existence.
    Ripped apart by corruption and power.
    Breeders of hatred and subdivision of greed.
    See you reflection?

    All access to platforms to spread their disease?
    In a word that's bleeding.
    Be a cell that clots, watch it renew.
    The peace comes in pieces.
    Let the inception of war end with you.

    Let it die.
    Let it die young.
