Do you agree with my suggestion?
I've been saying it since the very beginning. Unfortunately, suggestions are rarely taken into consideration on SG, if at all.
I think they are probably taken into consideration, but I'm guessing there is only 1 person working on the site without much time to work on it. I don't know how much profit is made from running the site, but I'm guessing it's not a whole lot. The limited time that is available to work on improving the site probably goes to more important things that keep it running. That is just my guess.
I'm going to go out on a limb here and suggest that there is no profit in running this site. I'd guess it is a negative sum game.
I am aware of that fact, but I don't see how it would make sense for cg (and anyone involved) to take suggestions into consideration if there is no plan to implement any of the suggestions (that the community have been making for years, now) in the first place. Sure, some of them have been implemented, but they are few and far - it almost seems pointless that the forum even has an option to categorize as "Bugs / Suggestions". :P
Perhaps I'm just a bit salty over most of the great suggestions I've seen posted (and the ones I've also posted) never making it on SG, so I've been forced to rely on userscripts which, thankfully, manage to do what vanilla SG can't.
I assume it’s a technical challenge. Or it would have already been done long ago.

This would be a nice feature. I have written many posts in the past where I wanted to post pictures inline when I mentioned them, but instead had to post them all bunched together at the end. This can get annoying because you then have to reference the images in the text.
tbh, with the patron Page i hopes top see things like thus added faster
Two years ago Yirg already made a topic about this..
I'm all for it, would increase readability (if used right)
I figured someone would have already said "just use ESGST" or "ESGST can do that, why do you need it on the site?" by now. But I was wrong!
Just use ASF!
..hang on, wrong topic. ..then again, I suppose that's never stopped that reply before.
Maybe something about warthogs, then?
In fairness, since the intent involves affecting users without the script, a script wouldn't really functionally work for this concept, so it's something that actually has to be handled site-end. Unless the ESGST users start killing off the rest of us, I guess. Well, I suppose it was only a matter of time.
this is something we'd really appreciate.
like a... Steamgifts gift.
(yesterday a friend met here, asked me "who's cg". so if you don't know who cg is, take a look below for his avatar, so now you know how he looks. he also created, still creates and will create SG for all of us)
While I think it's a good idea, I doubt it will ever rank very high on the site's priority list since it's a "quality of life" improvement, and improvements to the site's basic functionality (i.e. the recent changes due to the GDPR) will always take priority.
Any cosmetic changes to the site would depend entirely on how much time CG has after dealing with other more serious concerns.
workaround: multi-post with a pix ending each section
example reserved Preamble...ing on and on
but sometimes people answere to your first comment so your sections will get splittet by comments and probably the sense will get lost
cause people may ansere to the other comments
and your sections will get more far aways
and once a number of replies is set, the link between your sections are lost^^
am i the only one who ist talking to me? :(
a workaround is never ideal
Well, yeah, I knew that workarounds exist, but this is kinda so we wouldn't need workarounds, you know? (also, each post would need to be a reply to the previous one lest other people's replies separate your message, like so).
a workaround is not an arguement against, it's a bandaid while we're waiting for the thing to get implemented
hmmm, you are right, with repying to your own comments, this workaround would work xD
reserved dying soliloquy
It would certainly be cool but it's not an easy change typically. Attachments are a separate thing from the contents of a post, so it's not a simple matter of moving them to be inline but rather the more complicated change of making a post contain images at all.
Things like this are likely to happen only if / when a major rewrite of the entire site happens.
+1 (at least)
from here may look like switching a setting on/off, à la Wordpress... and obviously, is not.
already hearing rants for that future new SG, also :P
If I remember correctly SG uses Parsedown to turn Markdown to HTML. By default Parsedown allows for inline attachments. So in this case it's most likely a conscious decision by Cg to not be inline. So it shouldn't take too much work to just remove this imposed limitation.
