... if there were a facility to post images on the forum. Quite often I'm baffled by someone's description of what's going on and it would help a great deal to see a screenshot with error messages and suchlike. I understand that it can be a load on the server but the ability to link, say, to a photobucket account would shuffle the hosting requirement away from PCA.
It could be fairly strictly kept an eye on, only allowing members to post images when necessary rather than random pictures of their pets, and I think it would help us diagnose quite a few problems.
I know what you mean Kate but the problem is that it is open to abuse. There is a danger you would end up seeing images that you would rather not see! I have seen this problem on other forums/message boards. FE would spend all his time deleting distateful pics.
Concur with all the above Kate - A hosting service like image shack and there are plenty of others too image-thrust for example and most of the browsers have their own versions. There is the abuse angle too This is a very big site perhaps the biggest and some folk who may be passing through have some strange ideas of what is fun.
avatars, but I can see also see why they are not liked, so don't really mind not having them. Signatures are also another modification that posters like to have, and possibly worth consideration?
I think a useful feature would be a 'number of posts' for people who come here. It can give visitors and the like an idea of the level of experience / commitment posters make to the forum. Especially useful for the help forum I would think!
