Thats just being pedantic, trivial and missing the point entirely.
Let me try a different approach: I do not want to use a web interface, such as the 'upload a photo interface on photoradar' or 'flickr' or 'some other web server' to add a photo into a gallery / collection / album / portfoliio, so I can then go into a different environment 'the forum' to add a photo into a message for discussion purposes when it is possible to do it directly from within (a modern) editor / database domain.
Having the image posted elsewhere (outside of the discussion forum) may have no value whatsover, and may even detract from an otherwise nice collection of photo's.
Given the number of times the database for this site has fallen over in the last few months I'd disagree.
Then identify the root cause and fix it or live with it. Don't restrict progress on existing problems.
If your database (and admittedly, I don't know which one you are using) is falling over then it is unlikely to be the data within it or the access load - it will more likely be configuration or access permissions, or possibly bound by the limitations of the server.
It's all the same discussion.
I don't see it that way, you can either improve what you have, or defend what you have.
Technically there is no reason why you cannot do as I have requested therefore no more discussion on that aspect.
Next discussion is do we want to, can we afford it, what benefits does it bring, is it a priority etc.
