On several occasions I have expressed my disappointment, being unable to illustrate the narrations with graphics other than uploading them at the end or linking without any visual promise how important that would be. That also doesn't work when trying to show a sequence. Actually I haven't posted here for years in the beginning, just because of that very reason, whereas just about all other forums do not restrict the img feature.

I understand the danger of spamming but with the current hyper active moderation, that would be caught very quickly, wouldn't it?

Anyway, it's highly unlikely that spammers are gold members, so wouldn't it be just be more than setting a simple flag to allow img for gold members everywhere and increase the attractiviness of becoming one?

Advice: enable [img] for gold members everywhere in the forum.

Seconded.

Is it really such a big deal to enable img tags in other forums, even for non-gold members?

Pretty please?

Thirded...

one of the older related threads: http://www.physicsforums.com/showthr...58#post1768758

It still doesn't make sense to me why the [newer] "HW forums" can have the IMG tag enabled but not the [older] non-HW "physics forums" .

Is this for anyone, or certain members only?

Super. Thanks Greg!!

Probably a good time to remind people to make sure that any pictures they post should be reduced to nothing larger 640 x 480, or 800 x 600 at the largest so the pictures don't cause the entire thread to scroll off a person's page. That is extremely disruptive.
