Every time I post an image from an external source, the forum automatically decides to self host my external images.
I use external image hosting services for a reason. I want my images to stay (you may argue that Manjaro is more reliable than an image hosting service, to which I would say ‘lol’).
You may not like what I will write, but I know three different Manjaro forums (there might have been four I don’t know), from which I have been a member of the last two. Previous forum migration we lost everything in the tutorials/guide threads, all images gone. The forum to me is not a reliable hosting solution for images in the long run.
I would like admins to disable this feature.
I think if people want to host their images on Manjaro forum, they will do it.
Also it has been said (can’t remember exact posts) that we should not host large files and things like that on the forum because it previously broke because of that, so why do you force external images to become self hosted on the forum?
It adds an unneeded stress on the server, takes hard drive space for no reason, forces edits in posts I didn’t edit (and then I wonder “Why TF is my post edited again?!!”), and also is annoying as it forces me to reupload my images because I can’t find my original links if I didn’t log into my accounts to upload the images, the day I want to share the images elsewhere and can’t find my original links in my posts here.
