    A question for @Amin Sabet@Amin Sabet: most forums I've been on seem to handle inline images differently than here; ie they don't make an obvious copy/attachment. Is this actually different, or are we just looking behind the curtain here? If so, why?

    It is actually different. I sent out a mass alert/notification (you should have received it since you were already a member) when we started doing this.

    More information can be found here: Hot linked (embedded) images now converted into attachments

    The reason I asked in the other thread because it seemed like it possibly would have impact on speed to. I'll read that link, thanks.

    It can affect speed but opens up discussion to a whole 'nother kettle of fish as you can see in that other thread.

    For the most part, the way our forum does attachments affects speed in a positive way, although not always.
