I kind of like the idea of Members having their own personal albums over there at E-P.
It makes pictures easier to find, if the links over here in threads need to be edited (for whatever reason).
Another thing about posting your own thread, it would be handy if Members posted the thread to be moved to the Photo Discussion Areas, in this General Discussion Area, as it is usually the first Area that most of us moderators read when we first surf this site (I might be wrong, too).
Just my thoughts.
