The other two Mustang forum boards I visit do not require a link to be put into the message in order to see pictures. Why can we not post a picture in the message area and only be able to post a link to that pic?
To answer your question as to why...Below is the formal reason.
Only the site admins can change it and I doubt they will.
In consideration for those using dialup access, displaying photos or graphics directly within posts is not permitted. Please use the "Attach file:" option to include a link to pictures and graphics within your post.
