    Suggestion:

    New BBCode:

    Code:
    [imgs][/imgs]
    It would allow a user to post multiple images at a time without have to use

    Code:
    [img][/img]
    on every single image. Yay, or Nay? It would be pretty handy.

    Sounds like a pretty good idea to me.

    Don't think it would be worth all the custom coding needed to get this done for how infrequently it would (and SHOULD) be used here:
    But "www.imagehost.com/youracct/funnypic1.jpg; www.imagehost.com/youracct/funnypic2.jpg" isn't valid and can't be resolved, so you'd need to add custom code that takes the text between the blocks, breaks it every time it encounters a ";" and then runs down the line resolving each URL.
    Sounds like an awful lot of trouble and bugfixing to deal with just to have an "easier" way to post multiple images... especially when many image hosting sites give you an option to copy the URL wrapped BB Formatting code.

    Well, maybe. I'm usually fine with multiple IMG tags though.
    twiztidsinz: There are tags here that are useful even if they go relatively unused.

    But were they custom coded and reproduce an already existing feature?

    I think the GBAtemp tv is an example.

    If you mean the [.tv] tag, that's different.
    While it may be similar to the [.youtube] tag, it's not the same as the videos aren't on youtube but on GBAtemp. It could be as simple as copying the [.youtube] tag to [.tv] and changing the player URL.
