I did explain that the images are stored away from the forum's server (actually they are uploaded if the user puts them in an image hosting account), and should not be deleted.
Oops. I missed that.

If it's allowed then it can be done. And no-one closes image hosting accounts like Flickr and Imgur once they've opened them as far as I know, there's no reason to?
Image hosting companies can change their terms of use. Photobucket did a few months ago. Hotlinks don't work anymore unless you upgrade to a Pro account, which is hundreds of dollars a year. Image hosting companies cease operations. Webshots had 32,000,000 users, Kodak Gallery had 20,000,000.

I've never managed to get a Flickr link to work on here. Can it be done?

That's true.

Can't say, I haven't used Flickr for years and I forgot my account details (see, no-one closes their account :D ).
