I may be missing something.. but it seems that i can only post an image by linking from somewhere else it is uploaded on the net. Is there a way to upload images from your computer into a post here?

It'd be nice to have the ability to do so from a phone as well.

you mean as an attachment?

offcourse that is possible, but do realise hat that would demand a - significantly - larger
server space, which, obviously, will come at a cost.

to be honest, i think the VC forum [server] would be best left as uncluttered as possible,
and thus it be best to upload to a third-party server, like imgur for example.

just open imgur.com, upload the pic you want, you get both the link to post as well as a
deletion link if you desire to remove it. all you have to do is copy the image code and
done.

its a small extra step to post, but it saves a huge amount of storage on the server and a
lot less cluttering - not to mention it saves the VC server from getting the risk of having
copyright protected material on it and it basically being under infraction, even if the
poster has done so completely unknowingly.

The fact that you are not aware of something doesn't mean it doesn't exist.

I'm assuming that's you agreeing with Riddler and stating that's the reasoning as to why it is the way it is, VC?

Logical. Makes sense.

Pretty much. Having the server host and serve an ever-increasing number of images could end up slowing down the site, which would annoy everyone here. I'd rather have 3rd party sites do the heavy lifting to keep these forums loading as fast as possible. As Riddler said, Imgur is a good option to upload images.
