My main question is, is does this step on the toes of the giant "Emotion" threads.

I was thinking more like the image equivalent of OOCQ. Like, scenes taken out of context. I think a general funny image share thing might be a bit too general?

I will admit I am copying the idea wholesale. Seems to work over there.

That said, I think OOC specific images are a bit too narrow.

Might it be simpler to just keep them here then?

I'm wary because the thread seems to do ok without it, and allowing it may careen this trainwreck off a cliff.


I'll give it a weeks trial and see how it goes. Images are temporarily allowed.

I might be misremembering, but I don't think regular old imagespam threads are allowed on B12. Things like the art thread get a free pass, but a thread consisting entirely of random images that people find amusing? Probably not.

Mind you, there's stuff like the desktop thread(s?), too. Images allowed probably wouldn't be that big of a deal.

If worried, just ask toady instead of wondering.

I was more worried about a thread entirely dedicated to contextless images, actually.

That was due to it being imagespam :P If people have worries that they're posting too many images, they can link it instead--that's not what the imagespam threads had going for them (and instead were things filled with nothing but images).

However while I agree with you on the skepticism about it, I'd add that such an image thread should be also better off with additional rules (ie Link if image is too big, which generally goes for all images of 600 pixel sizes in either height or width or more) as no other imagethread ever had that kind of reasoning.

And this too. But let's test it...and probably ask Toady's opinion, because part of my agreement also goes to the idea that there are images that do help folks--as I've seen many places hosting images that have good ideas in them. :O

This is an amusing image, but it is most certainly not one that could be classified under "funny, and only funny when lacking context". A bad start to this experiment.

I asked toady once about image only threads, and he said it was ok.

That said, yeah not a stellar start.

I think what image actually qualifies is rather vague as well...
