    How do you insert images?
    I use postimage.org to upload the image and then I paste the direct link in the window that appear when you click on the button to insert an image.
    I wonder if there's a faster method.
    If I have to attach a file how do i do it?

    if you use the non SSL website (http:// instead of https://) of gbatemp, just click the top-right icon to upload your file to Filetrip.
    it will gives you a link to put it back to the thread.

    for strange certificate reason, the SSL version doesn't recognize your account and upload to anonymous account.
    it works too, but the file is not kept indefinitely.

    You don't need an account, especially not on imageshack. I was writing about the imgur stuff the poster above is talking about and got ninja'd.

    yes, it's there too.
    I just verified.

    But there is an issue with that button since .. yesterday ! haha
    Since Costello restored the site to its state before the last plugin addition (which made the site very slow), the upload file permission is disabled.

    Costello knows about it.

    Could it be that my grade of member must be higher to view it?
    Because I still can't see it
    Edit: sorry I have just seen now the image you posted

    You can drag&drop your images directly in. Right?

    That only works in threads. Not PMs.

    Between insane and insecure
    I use filetrip to paste images in PMs
    Although, it would be nice to upload images directly to the PM.
