Reading the Chat section I was wondering if reaction images and gifs should be banned from Chat except in the designated threads? What I mean is sometimes a post will be made, post a news article or silly tweet, and people will just post a single meme image as their response. I suggest a ban for images in Chat for the following reasons. Usually, similar reasoning to the lack of visible avatar, it makes the discussion seem immature The images usually add nothing to the discussion While being posted to be funny can be fun it can detract from the overall discussion (related to first point) Image bandwidth should be conserved for timelines as that is the main purpose of the site. Not posting unrelated memes (chat is unrelated content). I suggest this ban not apply in threads where images are explicitly invited to be posted. I feel applying it would not detract from discussion in other chat threads. In regard to images of twitter posts I feel like not much would be lost though I post those sometimes. Usually they are posted for a funny comment or in a fast moving news situation where official sources haven't verified the facts. Thank you for reading.
