    Is there a reason why users can't embed images in threads? I am a part of various forums and this is the first where the option is not available? Just curious is all.

    Well you can upload images less than 19 kb size (if i'm correct), if there's really images that possibly small.

    Not talking about uploading images mate. :) I am talking about embedding. Erm..For example, if I upload an image to an image hosting website (like imageshack), then I can post it's direct link in a thread as [​IMG], and that image will get displayed in the thread itself.

    But not on this forum.

    Because it eats up the website's bandwidth.
    But the surprising part is that IMG code works in certain sub-forums on this site, but not on all.

    I am sorry, please don't take this the wrong way, but I thought that by posting this question in the feedback section, I was asking the authorities? I mean no offense man. You're a very contributing member here (I know that even in the little time I've spent here), and I mean no disrespect towards you, but I am looking to get an answer from the forum staff here.

    Moreover, I am not talking about uploading images to this forum, but rather embedding the files using the code. When you upload a file to this forum, it eats up this forum's bandwidth, but when you EMBED a video (let's say from a youtube), or an image (let's say from imageshack), then the only bandwidth used is of the website truly hosting that media, which in the above example would be youtube, and imageshack respectively.

    I am neither demanding that this be done, as I can't, but I am just curious why this is not an option, as at least I feel it makes for a better alternative for people to learn things.

    I quoted the official response only (of course it was given long time back, so we can wait for an updated response).

    Ah! Okay! It will be good to get an updated response, as this official one is well...not exactly correct.

    Ahh...he definitely raised some valid points there. I too raised it only because it IS imperative for a forum like this to offer some visual aid. Super Admin was last active 3 days ago. Perhaps I should PM him the url of this thread.

    Vendettarevived - Valid point .. This has been brought up a few times. Will surely come with something soon.

    There are a lot of fixes that are coming in.

    Will keep you posted.

    First thing to come in asap is the BLOG. We have some very good writers joining us. More on that soon.

    Cheers !

    Thanks for replying Super Admin. Do we have an approximate timeline for these changes? I am just asking by the way, not trying to be a smartass, if my questions come across that way.
