Sending someone a photo in a PM?

Hello, I'd like to send a photo to an ER friend or two via PM. I notice there's no "attachment" icon in the PM utility. Is this because of bandwidth concern or some other reason - and is there a way to send a photo attachment to a PM, other than dumping it to the cloud and sending a URL?

Thanks,

Amethyst

No way to send attachments in a PM - just a guess but I suspect it is to prevent some stealth porn spammer from sending photos...

Maybe your friend will provide you with an email address?

This looks like the way to share photos: under community - pictures & albums. You can post photos and make them public or private. I've never used this.

I'll bet vBulletin either doesn't have this feature or it's been disabled because of the notorious E-R.org Asian porn spammer incident a few years back...

It's sort of funny to think that while some people pay $$ for porn, others will suffer inconvenience to keep "free" porn away! (Note: I am NOT a porn fan and despise spam as much as anybody).
