Very interesting, looks like that could indeed be the issue. I've reached out to the guy who runs the site, let's see what he says.

HTTPS is coming, but needs some server upgrades so itís not as simple as it would seem. Absent that, you can save the image and use that with it linked to the original.

So basically for now it should be treated like any other image - save, host, and embed.

This has probably been requested many times before, but I'll ask again.
Can we please have a politics board separate from JS, and posts won't either count there?
It's really annoying to step over all the politics threads.
Maybe @Yo ssi can start a poll to get an idea if people are interested in this

You're better off leaving JS the way it is, and making a Safe Space board - no talk of religion, politics, or controversial topics allowed. What's left? Who knows...

After seeing these two things:
https://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=49976.msg2368255#msg2368255
And
https://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=119773.50
There needs to be a discussion about the forums are not being your marketing platform (unless you are paying dd) (and not either to let you rip people off) rather it's to let people know what's out there, and show the advantages of your product, not cursing out what will make you lose business.

I like that idea.
Remind me in like 3 months, if my life is less crazy than it is now maybe I'll make an SMF mod to do that... :)

(the tricky part is going to be figuring out a user-friendly way for people to decide if the picture (or video for that matter) should be hidden or not)
Bump paging @whYME

The best implication should be to try to make thumbnails as a first choice (only available via postimages (and even then not always)), with a fall back to it being links.
