Will there be any changes or (dare I say it) improvements to the way that we can upload photos onto our posts in a more direct way?
Hope it all goes well with the updates - a lot of work goes unseen into this site and it is appreciated - cheers

Basically we are updating to vBulletin Connect 5. This does have improved in-post photo capabilities. We do encourage people to use our own gallery area of course as photos only posted in the forum are likely to be seen only briefly while in the gallery they remain more accessible for longer. But there does have to be a better balance and I can't expect everyone to use the gallery all of the time so that is one aim of the upgrade.
