    I mean, they're basically only used for image spamming nowadays. And even if someone posts a screenshot or something, I'd still prefer it as an URL instead of an in-your-face IMG. Many forums have them disabled for these reasons, so why not? Or at least add an option.

    Good idea. Spamming in GRPG should not be allowed or even possible.

    It would be even better if we could remove Drogspamming in GRPG though.

    Any RPG Codex that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security would deserve neither and lose both.

  6. It's fine the way it is. What would be nice is the images to appear in thumbnail size and you click to enlarge them, but I guess that needs some newer form of phpBB.

    If there are users doing image spam, you point out the users and provide links to said spam.

    I'm against.

    Just ban the fucker doing the spamming in any topic that hasn't descended into retardation.

    Also, remove huge-ass on topic images with no repercussions to the poster.

    That's actually a nice idea. There's clickable option already, and since GRPG doe...o DU later, the damage would be already done)

    How about automatic resizing instead so pictures don't break the page?

    Not being able to spam witty image macros at one's leisure would be serious :decline:

    No images would be pretty hardcore. Even mainstream forums allow images.

    I think a nice compromise is to permit only a single img tag per post.

    No, I'm not doing any code analysis to limit the number of image tags used.

    This. Images don't kill topics, people posting dumb-ass images kill topics.
