I don't understand why only the OP on >>>/news/ can post images.
What the reasoning behind it? I don't understand.
Because some people like to post images that are relevant to the news article.
If people don't want to see images, they can disable them in 4chan's settings.
I just don't understand the reasoning behind it, that's all.
So instead of the childish answering a question with another question response are you going to tell me what the point of disabling images for non-OPs is?
Or do you, like me, not know the reasoning behind it?
Because allowing images on all posts will just bring it closer to being another /pol/. The only thing /news/ has going for it is that people aren't posting stupid infographics, memes and happy merchant pictures all the time.
Then you're using the board wrong fucktard.
Just because you do not understand why it is, does not mean it should not be. Nor does it mean everything should be adjusted to for your view of how things should operate. Stay the fuck of /news/, we'll be a lot happier without dumb cunts like you who cannot articulate a point without using eye candy. Saged and hidden.
It's to prevent /pol/ from hijacking threads they don't like with le epic redpilled dubious source infographs
>they looked and functioned way differently.
You made threads to which people could reply and there were no images.
Just because it doesn't look like some sort of a time vortex to the 90s doesn't mean it's not a textboard.
>I don't understand why only the OP on >>>/news/ can post images.
>What the reasoning behind it?
Because /news/ is a text board. >>>/news/6 The better question is "Why is OP allowed to post images?"
>I don't understand.
Images serve as an extension of the thread's title. It makes it look like a legitimate news article, and those also have pictures. Myself, I just like to use an Undertale picture with my post.
