What's going on with attachments? I can't attach images to posts in my threads
Hi there, just posting as this has not been replied to. Me being a moderator here I do not even know if it is possible to attach images to posts as there has been many changes made to the forum recently. I hope one of the admins will be able to answer this for you! Welcome!!!
Hello attachments are not allowed, this is why you are not allowed to upload them.
Why aren't they allowed?
From what I recall, it's to stop the possibility of someone posting something triggering. Some people will feel they need to post an image of SH, or other triggering images. While the act might be innocent by the Original Poster, the effect can be quite damaging to people in a vulnerable state.
That and that detour people from posting personal information. Such as personal photos. I once used a picture of myself as my avatar. I pleasantly received a nice pm requesting I take it down because some user thought I looked like their Abuser.
Ah fair enough then. That does make sense to have this rule then
