Due to memory limitations, we can't host images on the forum site, so you have to post a link to an image hosting service. There are several such services, including postimg and imgur.

Here are the steps to post an image:
1- Get your screen shot however it works in your system (in Windows, push the "PrtScn" button on your keyboard. On a Mac, press Command-Shift-3.)
2- Edit the image to clip the part you want and/or resize it to make a reasonable display
3- Upload it to your image hosting service.
4- Copy the link for the posted image to your clipboard. You want the 'Direct Link" address.
5- In your forum post, hit the insert image button (shown)
6- Paste your link into the Image URL field

ye that doesnt work to well usually.
There are still size limitations on what the site will allow when linking to outside images. Particularly large images won’t display regardless of where it’s hosted. There may also be a limit on number of images per post

I don’t know what the exact limitations are for linking, but I know uploading above 1mb would fail in the en server while linking allows above that. So there’s a starting point in figuring out what works or doesn’t

Maybe pass it through tinypng first before uploading to Imgur or whatever they’re using? It usually significantly improves size.

Out of curiousity, is it possible to post a video of your city getting plundered, purely for entertainment purposes? That would be excellent.
