That might make it hard for someone to post something of what's going on with an issue though.

Yes, it seems that we can only link to images and not upload directly as we could previously.

Apps like Gyazo, to make screenshots and upload to the cloud and is available for Linux as well, could make this easier though.

If you don't feel like installing any kind of capture utility, imgur is fairly convenient and allows hotlinking.

There is some noise on the FlaskBB issue tracker about eventually supporting uploads. If we really need it, I can probably monkey-patch it in before an official release.

The syntax for links and images is different since this forum uses markdown instead of bbcode:

I was curious on it because I can remember how someone would want to see a terminal output when some issues were going on or at times when you had to do a snapshot with a camera to show what was happening at times. Bios settings for instance. I've had to use both terminal and snapshots of stuff in past so that kinda caught the attention when I saw the link bit.I dropped Dropbox when I was one of the ones that got hit with the information thing happening that time. Think it was before the Mint's forum getting ripped.

Found out when I had used this site: https://haveibeenpwned.com/
I knew about the Mint one but didn't know about the Dropbox. Any rate had already been changing passwords etc. And since no one I knew was still using decided to just close the account for time being. But if you guys still going to post things to it like before I could go and reopen one. I remember when Leppie had put stuff in there for us to look at and rest would also be posting for share there.

Though I still use Dropbox, it would probably be better to use some other platform like mega.nz.
With Mega you get 50 GB for free. I don't know about the maximum file size though.

Had to go to FF to open link. Kept getting error while using Pale Moon on it for some reason. Checking it out.Might go there.

Saw where it says to try w/o creating an account and then create one. Guess that it's a trial base for a short amount of time and then you have to create and pay for it then?
