In a post where I had an image of a circuit, I got a message saying that I need to update my profile to enable 3rd party hosting, what does this mean??

It's not clear what you mean by "Forum told me" but photobucket recently stated charging people to hotlink images from their hosting service, which broke images embedded on a ton of forum threads.

It's much better for people to just host the images here on the forum so posts don't suffer bitrot over time. For instructions:

I believe the message to update your profile came from Photobucket and referred to your profile on Photobucket.
