questions about gallery discussion forum

Lately I've been noticing more and more people posting pictures inside threads in the gallery discussion room. Is this a potential problem? Can too many large pictures on the board mess things up? Are people who post picture threads also submitting those pictures to the gallery or just leaving them on the board?

Anyone have any thoughts about this?

You cannot upload a picture directly to the forum, so any embedded pic you see is being hosted elsewhere on the internet, probably uploaded to our gallery.

It shouldn't be a problem, other than that sometimes people embed really large pics that kill dialup users' performance on page load. That's just bad manners...

There have been a couple of pictures that haven't gone through me (either because they're not in our Gallery, or because someone else approved them).

I don't personally have a problem with pictures being shown, although it would be kinder to dial-up users if a link was used instead.

The only thing I do get a little irked about is the physical dimensions - if it makes the thread go outta whack, and make me have to scroll SIDEWAYS as well as vertically to read, I get grumpy.
