    Uploading pictures to the forum

    Hello guys,

    this may be a silly question from a new member, but is there a way to upload screenshots to the forum?
    I have a few nice ones by now, which would go well in the roleplay or other threads. Can I upload them here?

    You'll need to host them elsewhere and include links to them in posts.

    Hi CMDR,welcome to this mighty fine community o7

    You can’t upload pictures directly to the forum.
    You can use IMGUR (free!) for that. Upload your picture to IMGUR and copy/past link in this forum

    You can post pics in the forum but, you will have to upload your pictures to a picture-sharing website, such as www.Imgur.com and then link to them, like this:



    You can also use tags to create "Spoiler" buttons like the one above (click on it) if you want to save space when posting a lot of pics, to have everyone click a button to see the pic or hide it in case someone doesn't WANT to see it (hence the "spoiler" tag) or you can just post the link to the picture on Imgur, like this:

    but by far the easiest method is to just have the pic show up in your post (using the BBCode link on Imgur), like this:
