it is a MUST feature! you can really give a proper answer to a comment cause the only method you have is some characters... even a new line is prohibited.

    Normally, you shouldn't be providing an answer in the form of a comment... That's what answers are for! Can you point out an example of a situation where such a feature would be helpful?

    I would just link to the picture like this: lorempixum.com/400/200 and then leave it to the user to click to expand the picture in a new tab.

its more annoying when I want to include a pic with my question and can't cause i'm new. first forum that i've ever visited to do this.

  • This is not a regular forum. The idea and application of privileges is important. Check the FAQ. Apr 11, 2011 at 6:29
  • The idea of a forum is to be able to give as much info at once and receive as much back. Pics are a great help! The FAQ on this site mentions nothing about this. Besides this is the definition of a forum. merriam-webster.com/dictionary/forum

    Sorry, but this is decidedly not a forum, it is a question and answer site. Following a question and answer format (and enforcing a few simple rules) encourages people to post higher quality material than a forum environment is capable of producing. If you need to post pictures, post an answer. Just make sure that it answers the question asked. Apr 11, 2011 at 20:39

    you seem a bit confused. New users are prohibited from embedding images, but this restriction is removed once you've accumulated 10 reputation points (one up-vote on an answer, two on a question). If you absolutely need to post an image before then, just convince a user with more reputation to edit it in for you.
