I'd love to able to upload images from my gallery straight to a description or post, instead of having to use a website. It seems to not make sense to have the process of adding images so long.

When you go in to upload a skin, you're uploading a picture. This isn't even for a large upload, it's just for images and stuff. I can do it with my profile pic, why not in descriptions and such?

There's nothing much I can provide for you in that case. We'd end up spending the bulk of bandwidth on images, and being an image host is expensive - much more expensive than the kind of data we usually serve, which is mostly text and sometimes downloads, but those are much easier to manage than images that automatically pop upon visiting pages.

If you showed to your parents what you'd be using it for and why you'd need it/that you're not intending on browsing, just using it to store images, that might be an option. Or maybe a friend on PMC can host them for you?

Yes, but for personal reasons, I can't use those websites. (Parents permissions especially.) I just mean like how you upload a skin from your computer, except instead of a skin, it's an image.

I can't use Imgur. It's for personal reasons. I need another way to deal with this.

Long? You just have to drag/drop all of your images into the gallery and it'll queue and upload them all up. I'm not sure what you mean by it being long.

That being said, we have no plans to host images for descriptions ourselves, but using something like Imgur is a better option.

Then we'd need to host those all those images. Doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me to host more images when there are great, free sites that don't even require you to have an account to host an image.
