Rethink Blocking Scratch as an Image Host

When I'm at school, NO IMAGES will show up (except for previously hosted ones), most scratchers use SCHOOL DEVICES. Whenever one edits their post, they won't be able to keep their image. Those other image hosts are PAID, the one that isn't (cubeupload) goes down a lot and is unstable. Scratch literally holds animations with tons of frames, like i've seen one with 1000+. Unless you add another free image host trusted by schools or educational sites, then using scratch images should STILL be allowed.

A good idea would be a built in image uploader (for scratchers)

A user would have to wait 10 minutes between each image. And no more than 25 images in 24 hours

If an inappropriate image is uploaded, you can reported so ST takes it out of it's server

Rethink Blocking Scratch as an Image Host

Support because the ability to show project thumbnails on the forums should still be possible, but because the forums now use the same filter as the comments, thumbnail links are blocked. However, the ability was never intended to be removed. By the way, you can still use assets by doing https://assets.scratch.mit.edu/scratchr2/static/.%2E/.%2E/(insert image here).(insert extension here) .

Using Scratch is rejected, and the top of TOLORS states that rethinking a rejected suggestion is still rejected unless you are providing a solution for the suggestion being rejected.

It never says that uncensoring project thumbnails are rejected. (I use them on my Show and Tell topics.)

The “new” filter uses the previous filter and the mainsite filter, and the cause was the images being blocked beforehand on the mainsite.

Fun_Cupcake_i81: Well then if you didn't want it back maybe you need to time travel to last year and fix that

Oh wait if you could time travel I think we all know exactly when you would go-
user1: That picture is from 2.0. Now he’s at my house and is my pet.
user2: But this is medians we're talking about, so “from 2.0” can mean the same thing as “from five seconds ago”.

Rethink Blocking Scratch as an Image Host

I'm thinking the main problem about using cdn2 and assets as image hosts might be that the Scratch Team may not have enough storage for people to keep doing that.
If that is the case, then adding a dedicated image host would just redirect the problem elsewhere instead of fixing the problem.

Images don't waste that much space. A 1080P PNG picture only takes up around 2MB of storage. A project, especially those as massive as Chirpy Reverie, takes up a lot more space.

Bruh. ☠️
Anyways (and possibly jokes aside), project thumbnails and profile pictures are still not allowed to be linked and reallowing them wouldn't fall under that thing. Plus, it's talking about general files, not images.

Each project on scratch uses one assets link for the thumbnail and I'm guessing the costumes. It can't take that much space.

Then they could use multiple images that aren't uploaded for the post.

Remember, something doesn't count as rejected if you add a solution.
