Now that we have live moderation, can we tweak the post settings to allow new users to post pictures and links? This used to be allowed before spammers took over the site. Now that we've got live moderation spam isn't so much an issue anymore and it would be beneficial for the real users to be able to use links and pictures to communicate their problems and resolutions.

Thanks.

To the Moderators, if you've got any inside contacts to the admin to make such suggestions, please take this idea under advisement.

Thanks.

Being able to post pics would be nice.

Jkirk, I don't know why you can't post pictures unless they are to large. If that is the case you can download a free re-sizer from Microsoft.

I think the reason for new posters from being allowed to post pictures is because of all the "PILL pushers" that were posting extremely large illustrated ads.

If any one wants a picture posted they can e-mail it to me and I'll post it for them if they are not allowed, providing it is relevant.

I've been doing this when I find relevant links (not active ) in posts, the member that built the TOH end table project was the latest person that I've helped out with the posting of pics and links.
