Can't Embed Images in Some Forums (Fora?)

I just noticed that I couldn't hotlink an image in Omni/PR like I can in the photography forum. I assume this was a setting done on purpose for some reason or another - anyone know why?

It would be nice to put in pictures when I think they add something to a post.

Images were not enabled for all forums, only ones were it was thought that that the images would add value. No disrespect to those who post in OMNI and OMNI/PR but I don't think it's a good idea for those forums to have imaged enabled.

Currently, embedded pictures are allowed in many fora, unfortunately, OMNI & /PR are not included. This is the TB motion adopted back in March, 2009 to allow embedded pictures in most fora.

In case you miss it, here are some old discussion threads on this issue over TalkBoard Topics Forum:

Voting Complete - Motion Passed: To allow static images in many forums

UPDATE: Motion Failed: Allow static images (except in omni)

Proposal: Allow Photos in Forums Besides Trip Reports and Travel Photography?

If you want to advocate changes to current policy w/r/t embedded photos, you should try to lobby or raise the issues (with very good reasons) in TB Topics Forum.
