If a picture is uploaded to addpics.com from this forum and removed as a picture attachment in this forum, then it will get removed only as a picture attachment in this forum and not get deleted in addpics.com.
Such pictures will be stored permanently in addpics.com and will get deleted from there only if we manually delete it from there. I am not sure if there exists such a feature to delete anyone's already uploaded pictures in addpics.com.

Picture files of JPEG, JPG, GIF and PNG file formats can be directly uploaded into this forum upto 2 MB in size even without premium tariff but what is the need for it if we can beautifully place them inline when they are attached to anyone's posts in this forum when they are uploaded to addpics.com and it offers unlimited amount of storage?
Also that 100 MB of free storage space in this forum for any attachments to anyone's posts in this forum that has already been exceeded in this forum several years ago applies only to administrators and not other forum members because Xobor forum developers want to force the administrators only to buy the premium tariff and to renew it every year. It is no longer renewed this year because there are no more active users in this forum except for me, Bussinchen and Scotty. Anyway that without the premium tariff, anyone can only attach file formats of JPEG, JPG, GIF, PNG, PDF and TXT to anyone's posts in this forum and other file formats are not possible to be attached to anyone's posts in this forum, isn't it?

Yes. That's right.
You can use Addpics.com also for other purposes than posting pictures just in this Scrabble3D-forum. For me, Addpics.com seems to be a riable picture hoster in general.

No, nobody else but you yourself can delete your uploaded pictures on Addpics.com. Maybe the hoster himself can, if uploades pictures have criminal contents. But we don't talk about those criminal issues here.

When I paid the Premium tariff to the hoster, it was better to upload pictures directly in this forum, because the forum had unlimited storage space.
No, when I don't pay for this forum any more, Addpics.com is better indeed.

Yes, I didn't know that before, but a technician from our forum hoster told that to me. But this is done only by goodwill, and nobody knows when our hoster's goodwill will finish. We don't have any guarantee that this will continue for ever. They can stop it whenever they want to change their rules.

Yes, unfortunately that's right.

But as a workaround you can change the file extension from for example .zip to .txt and then upload that file anyway. But you have to tell that users have to change back that .txt-file extension back to .zip, before using or viewing that downloaded file.

I think that these puzzles should be of interest to all of types of Scrabble word cracking gamers:
https://www.sporcle.com/playlists/razorz/word-scrambles

Insane anagrams!
Can you fill this themed crossword where all the across words are anagrams of another across word?
https://www.sporcle.com/games/BookishGir...-of-my-insanity

www.sporcle.com is a website where people can play all of types of quizzes in all of types of subjects.

In General Forum, in that main forum, and not in any of its subforums, I use 'Scrabble stories and spot the best play puzzles' thread to discuss about cracking words in different Scrabble board positions and 'Word puzzles' thread to discuss about cracking words in different situations that are not in Scrabble boards.
Cracking word puzzles are related to Scrabble and hence to Scrabble related forum only. Though, I can talk about other off topic messages that are not related to Scrabble in Café forum, I am not paid for that and also that there is no end for that either.

crosswordlabs.com is a website where people can solve all of types of crossword puzzles in all of types of subjects.
