I see the insert/edit image button, but it’s asking for a “source”? Do I actually have to find an image server to upload them to and then link them? Is this 1998?

No, it is not 1998.  There reason you cannot directly upload pictures to the WACA website is because you are a “Guest”. We limit direct uploads to verified members only.  So Yes, you do have to upload them to an image server and then post the URL to them here.

Understood, but that seems short sighted. In all likelihood some of the most amazing Winchesters that are still out in the wild are likely sitting the the closets and gun safes of individuals who have no idea what they have. Making it easy for these same individuals (or people dealing with the estate of same) to post images and possibly find homes for these rare rifles seems advantageous to both your membership and the organization as a whole. For instance, I was trying to post pictures of a model 1892 that was, unlike most of that model remaining alive, was actually built in 1892, having a serial number of #185. I am looking to find this rifle a new home but at this point I don’t really want to have to find a server, upload the images, then link them here, etc, etc, etc. 

I’ll just find another source of information and interest. Thanks.

What you are apparently not considering is the sheer number of illicit posts (Spam) that would inundate this website if it were open to just anyone to post whatever they wanted…  and believe me, they did exactly that before we shut it down!  Shortly after we launched the new website (several years ago), I was deleting more than 1,000 SPAM posts per day that were coming from China, Russia, North Korea, and several other countries trying to sell Porn and 100s of other non firearms related crap.  

Most people who legitimately want to discuss or find a home for an old Winchester have the fortitude to do that small amount of extra work necessary to post pictures.

There is no better source than this website.  Hopefully someone will give you a link to a photo hosting site.
