Why is there a Post Image button in the message editor?

Wouldn't it save a lot of moderator time if that button were just removed from the message editor, and the [img] tag disabled?

Just think of all the productive coffee consumption the moderators could be doing when they aren't wasting time changing images to URLs...

This would require modification of the forum code, which has been prohibited at CCP since 1983.

They'd also have to disable the recognition of [-img] tags.

Actually, my post above was a lie. In fact CCP, did modify the forums. On realising that there was the ability to add images, which goes against the forum rules, they... added the option to turn images off.

Which is kind of like saying that it's illegal to shout hate speech in public, so the police are going to... distribute earplugs to anyone who wants them.

Unsure if you're serious or not, but if you are, images are allowed in some subforums, like the IGS.

Also if the [img] tag was disabled, everyone would have to have a text signature!

The sheer amount of guns is what gets me. How could one man ever use that many in a realistic combat situation? And i think that's an ice climbing instrument he's got the rosary hanging from.

If all hell breaks loose his odds still aren't any better than a guy with one gun, or even just a guy armed with a board who's very good at hiding around corners.

Probably not a good analogy. If there were a law like that in my area, I'd be yelling out the most "hateful" speech you have ever heard. I be able to get huge payday from the resulting lawsuit on civil liberties violations.

If he has a defensive position he is at an advantage being able to switch weapons according to the situation.

Hmm, the new forums will surely not have that function, which means with them comes the end of an era.


Then we shall ASCII in the shade.

Also, anyone trying to steal the guns will need a couple of trucks and a hand full of moving guys to do so.

Image tags are permitted as we occasionally need to publish images in certain forum areas and players are also permitted to post them in other forum areas such as IGS and banners for CAOD.

Could restrict it to CCP only, and restrict players from using the image tags except in the allowed forum areas.
Would save you lots of work in the end.
