We all love to see everyone’s gear. I think you should enable everyone to embed picture links from places like photobucket using IMG and /IMG tags. That seems to be the standard on forums these days and gets around any size rules and keeps the attachment issue in check.

We’ll give it some thought or perhaps an alternative.

There are a few issues. Embedding images from outside sources opens up a couple of *potential* issues. Embedding huge images [both in size and/or dimension] can result in a page loading slowly and/or the page getting all out of whack. Linking can also cause massage page hits for the source. This isn’t always a great thing if the site on the other end either can’t handle the traffic or doesn’t want images linked/embedded on external sites.

Trying to be good Internet citizens as well as providing a good experience for the community.
