Is there a go-to website for posting pics/diagrams of projects for the other here to view?
I used to use Photobucket, but I guess we all know what happened with that site.
Staten Island, New York.
PhotoBucket is back with free local and remote hosting, but remote hosted
images are watermarked now.
I don't know if ImageShack is still around, but I quit using them when they
started hosting aggressive and invasive advertising scripts.
I'd be interested in such a site also. The last time I searched
and tried 1 or 2 it was a big waste of time ..
with registration & software & all the smart phone crap.
I would like to post about 10 - 20 pics per year ..
60 bucks US dollars isn't cheap !
Many of these sites are meant for people who want
to store & organize all their photos -
hundreds and hundreds ... 60 bucks works for them.
What do you mean "can post with no advertising"? When I go to that
page I see a photo titled "apple upsidedown" and ads for "This is the
most Intriguing Game You'll Play This Year" (twice), "Most beautiful
Slavic girls on the net", "1 trick kills erectile dysfunction"
(twice), "Legal steroid gains muscle mass at any age", "22 discounts
seniors get only if they know", and "realistic game for men"
FWIW, I've been using Flickr since 2006 (they tell me). Currently you
can post 1000 free images or you can get unlimited for $50 a year. I
don't see any ads when I browse my photos not signed in on a brower, I
don't know what the apps show.

Free, no spam, easy upload from both a computer and a smart phone.
My favorite feature is the availability of a direct link to an image that
can be used in a forum such as this. e.g. My cribbage board project. No ads,
not even a mention of the site. Just the image.
In under a minute, I can snap a picture, upload it, grab the link and paste
it here or in an email or text.
For a series of pictures, I have used Google Photos. You can create a folder,
upload a bunch of pictures and create a link that you can post or send to
P.S. I grew up in Flushing. I spent more time on USCG Governors Island than
Staten Island, but for a few months I drove to Staten Island every day. I
spent the summer between high school and the Coast Guard delivering bagels
for my buddy who owned a bagel shop in Queens. I once drove 110 MPH on the
Verrazzano-Narrows Bridge. I was running late. ;-)
... binary newsgroups were dropped from my usenet server
- and many many other servers - about 10 - 15 years ago.
Paying for a newsfeed that provides binaries - just to post or view
a few pics per year ? - not ,
And that's precisely why you have the choices that there are.
I send Wikipedia some money around this time every year because I
appreciate what they do. If you choose not to show any support
for things, don't be surprised when they disappear.
These days, pre-paid Visas (AKA "gift cards") remove a lot of the
risks when dealing with services you don't fully trust.
I use giganews.com, though I'm told others are cheaper. (My wants
and needs are pretty specific.) I think they carry any binaries
groups that have not had legal take-down actions related to them.
That is to say that I recall some binaries groups from years back
that were excessively youthful, and they are not in the groups
listing I get.

I know I need to see more
That got my attention, but going to usenet-news.com tells me they
don't do usenet anymore. What site are you dealing with?
I have. They are pretty solid to the 3-year they advertise, but
hit and miss before that. Several years back, they announced they
were expanding the retention. I expected things from them foreward
would show up. Maybe some did. The "old DVD" groups seem to be
mostly just 3 years.

Take a look at Astraweb.com I switched to them a year or three back and
have just now renewed and purchased a 25GB block of downloads for $10
that is non-expiring. Excellent servers in multiple countries.
Retention as good as anything that I've seen elsewhere. All binary groups.
Not a shill, no "commission" to me for the referral. Just sharing an
excellent feed for dirt cheap.
