|MetaFilter's site and server can always use upgrades of hardware, software, and bandwidth, as well as more stable funding for continued support of its small but high-skilled moderation and backend team! If you'd like to chip in, you can donate to Metafilter.|
Embedding images with standard HTML code used to be permitted, but since October 22, 2006 they've been stripped during posting/commenting because of security concerns. MeFites are still able to link to images, but they cannot be displayed in-thread, as on other forums. The continued lack of image tags has inspired front page posts about ASCII art.
In-thread images from mods
Every now and again, the mods flex their might and embed images in threads. Here are some of those images. Some are MetaFilter-related images, some are not.
- Ride that goddamned pony (Best of the Web GIF)
- Going to see Batman: The RPG
