We're introducing a new beta feature on GameFAQs that will allow you to include uploaded images in your message board posts. While we have absolutely no plans to introduce video or animated GIF hosting, the ability to include your own images in posts without having to use an external hosting service should make the site much easier to use. Things to know:

  • This initial test is available only in the WYSIWYG editor, and only to users level 33 and higher
  • To include an image, you can either drag-and-drop it into the editor, or click the image icon and select a local file to upload
  • You can only include a maximum of 5 images in a single post, and the maximum file size for all images in a post combined must be under 4MB
  • Images wider than 1024 pixels or taller than 768 pixels will be shrunk down to that size
  • All images will be stripped of metadata and shrunk when necessary, and images over 100KB in size will be converted to JPEG
  • There is no guarantee that any images will be available on the system for any period of time. Once a post has been deleted, the underlying image may also be deleted
  • Posting offensive images (those containing sexually explicit material, promoting the sexualization of minors, explicitly promoting terrorism or hate speech, and featuring real-world violence) is grounds for an immediate ban
  • The WYSIWYG editor now uses a traditional formatting toolbar, and a few new surprise formatting options (maybe you noticed one in this post?)
As always, if you encounter any bugs or errors, please report them: https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/feedback?type=20
"Um, let's face it, you'd be better off staying at the Hilton."
