I don't understand why only the OP on >>>/news/ can post images.

What the reasoning behind it? I don't understand.
>>
>>416789
It's a text board.

/qa/ is literally the worst board and a newfag breeding ground, who think this place should be a substitute for lurking.
>>
>>416791
>It's a text board.
Why though? What's the point in disabling images for non-OPs?
>>
>>416796
Why not?
>>
>>416797
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?
>>
go to /pol/ if you want to post le epin maymays while you discuss current events. go to /news/ if you'd prefer to just discuss the topic.
>>
>>416807
What if I just want to post on-topic images on a /news/ board?
>>
it was probably done so people couldn't post /pol/ infographics
>>
>>416842
What's wrong with infographics?
>>
>>416844
they're dumb
>>
>>416789
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.
>>
>>416826
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.
>>
>>416863
There's like only one guy posting there.
>>
If you absolutely need to post an image, upload it to imgur and link it. If that's not good enough for you, you're an attention whore.
>>
>>418361
So like reddit, basically.

We should do that for all boards.

Finally, someone admits that Reddit is for people who are NOT attention whores. Thank you.

>text board
It's an imageboard without images. 4chan has had text boards (I wish I used /games/ more than once), and they looked and functioned way differently.

Imgur is image hosting for attention whores, with viewing stats, upboats, comments, le trending images, meme errors, etc.
>>
>>418460
So does YouTube, but people use it anyway.
>>
>>418422
damn . . .
>>
>>416800
Okay.

Some people like text boards.
>>
>>418468
And people use Reddit and Imgur too.

fuck off back to /b/ and stay there

Woah. Calm down.
>>
>>416789
It's to prevent /pol/ from hijacking threads they don't like with le epic redpilled dubious source infographs
>>
>>416791
It is the worst, but how can an unlisted board be newfag central?

Also not a text board.
>>
What's the deal with the catalog?
>>
>>418538
Says the fag who wants to post happy merchants and cuck porn everywhere.
>>
>>418444
>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.
>>
>>416789
>I don't understand why only the OP on >>>/news/ can post images.
Okay.
>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.
Okay.
>>
>>418681
>>>/news/6
>>
>>416789
Better question: Why can OP post images?
>>
>>420358
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.
