Guess an announcement for this was long-pending. All those who were regularly accessing the "Changes in the Horror Dot Com Forums" in General Section would be familiar of the usage of this by now.

Long story short -

1) To hotlink oversized, huge images (the ones which are longer and wider than 400 pixels) in your post, you can use the all-new TIMG codes instead of the regular IMG codes.

2) Most sites out there discourage hotlinking from their sites. That's why images more often don't show in your posts. In those cases, either an image storing site such as photobucket.com works, or you can use the ATTACHMENTS section, which is now in complete working condition.

3) You can add youtube videos into your post directly as well.
All you have to do, is to copy/paste the video URL part of the youtube link (for example, for the URL http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bEVY_lonKf4, the youtube video URL is "bEVY_lonKf4", the code after the "v=" part of the URL), in-between [YOUTUBE] and [/ YOUTUBE] codes.
Alternatively, you can use the RED video-play icon in the editor toolbar above.

Forum users are requested to use these new codes for a better forum-browsing experience. Moderators are also requested to enforce this into regular usage for users as much as they can.

Thanks, and happy foruming, folks!
