  • I would love to be able to trust people enough to allow for this. However, given the past proof than an <img> can be worth a thousand hurls... How do you propose to prevent the 'goat' people from posting and ruining your boards?

    What would be nice is to have some admin assigned user flags in the db to allow for saying who can post a pic or who can take one down without having to be an author on the site. A 'power user', if you will, who you have some level of trust in. Maybe as a super high karma privlege for example or an image moderation scheme, so that your site could do nice things like post images and you not have to worry about some jackass who thinks a gaping sphinxter is required reading today.

    I think that opening this up for all users is just asking for trouble if you don't have some sort of control mechanism in place to prevent abuses.

      The idea was to only open it up in certain sections, or perhaps have a checkbox available when creating a new story. This would give the authors greater control over images posted outside of "acceptable". Another possible security step would be to not allow ACs to use the tag.

      The idea is to open up the funtionality of my site, and give users yet another thing to keep them from leaving. If this comes at the cost of having to keep a closer eye on certain things, I'm willing to do it.
