The only drawback is that you have to make an account to be able to upload

This is absolutely the deal breaker. The GameFAQs staff isn't gonna force people to register for some random unaffiliated site just so they can use this site. I understand that Imgtc got preference because it was made by a GameFAQs user, but at least you could upload without an account, so anyone could use it.

I don't think it's a deal breaker, but I do agree that requiring an account is a bad drawback. But if we can't find a site that allows uploads without an account and allows direct-linking, then I think it's the best option. To me, it goes: No account required and direct-linking (ImgTC or some equivalent) > Account required and direct-linking (Vgy) > No account required and no direct linking (Imgur)

Does that make it direct link without the extra Imgur screen stuff?

Oooh, wow. That's even better than I was hoping. Let me test this out.

EDIT: It appears in the little Imgur wrapper instead of just on the page by itself, but that's fine. Works for me.

The changes we got today are already pretty good and I appreciate it. One last minor thing: Do you think we can separate the setting based on images and videos? Like, if someone only wants to embed images but not videos, or videos but not images, can those also be options in the future? Just curious.

Another thing: When the announcement said Twitter would be embedded: did that mean direct links to images from Twitter, or the actual tweets themselves? Because I've seen a few Twitter image links (as in, they end in .jpg) already that aren't embedding.

Yeah, I just saw one in another topic. It embeds the tweets themselves. I really wanted support for Twitter images (twimg); I've even posted about that here before.
