Created a new thread not to pollute the old one with tech talk.
Huh. That’s strange. That doesn’t fit with my observations. Image uploads worked just fine when we first got here. TubaDiva then specifically disabled images. When talking to @codinghorror about this, he described it as an unsupported modification (what is commonly referred to as a “hack”). And later on, when we discussed the issue where scrolling up will often skip posts, he said it was because of the hack that disabled images also disabled caching images. And he said that Discourse depends on that feature to handle scrolling up properly.
I really don’t mind that we can’t directly upload images. The fact that it’s slightly harder adds a bit of friction, keeping people from posting too many images. But it would be nice if scrolling up wasn’t so janky, causing posts to get skipped as the images from previous posts load in. It’d be great if the mods/admin and the tech people could discuss ways to fix that.
