Can we block images?


#1

bit annoying at work seeing that parcs and rec gif all the time


#2

No. We asked and the people who created the software were all “LOL U MAD BRO? What kind of outfit are you running where people don’t like images or might post really dodgy ones? Doesn’t happen.”


#3

Have these people heard of the internet?

:smiley:
Nah, I mean the point was that no one who has previously used this forum has had an issue with it. I’m not sure if this is a case of people just using the normal ‘report and kill’ method or just that its use has mostly been quite ‘serious’ forums? I presuming adding the option mustn’t be easy in their code or else they’d have done it.


#5

Could we do it with CSS?


#6

are you shitting me?

#8

Ok, I’ve added some CSS to not display images in posts. Don’t know if there are any unintended consequences, and doesn’t stop images being uploaded.


#9

just when i thought we were going to join the 20th century!


#10

Was going to suggest having an ‘images’ tag and then showing images where the thread is tagged with it. But I don’t think that’s possible with CSS. And I should be going out now.


#11

Okay good work but there’s one showing above your post so is it in place already?


#12

I’ve turned them on again, was just a trial.


#13

Ah! Cool then, thanks.


#14

Do you think it’s something we could do at the top of the site with a link back to the old site and then a link to turn off all images?


#15

I would imagine it wouldn’t be too hard to add a little button somewhere to toggle images in comments on and off


#16

I’ve put in a request over on the @discourse forums


#17

Good idea! That’s the best way forward.

Just popping in to offer my support for image minimalisation in whatever the most convenient form is.

[details=Perhaps we could all hide our images like this?]

Pro: It’s a throwback to olddis where you have to click to see the image

Con: It’s cruel and unusual punishment for japes

EDIT: OH MY GOD THIS WASN’T SUPPOSED TO BE A REPLY TO THE CAPTAIN. WHY DO I KEEP DOING THIS?
