Image FAQs

Would someone like to work on changing the image FAQs as discussed last July?

I think the issues discussed there have been ignored longer than any others facing this community. We're about to release the Guide to Mood Icons, which, like FAQs #6 and #97, should link to a separate FAQ on image hosting. Right now, the Guide links to FAQ #6 instead, and the two FAQs repeat each other in explaining the image hosting issue.

Also, see how FAQ #6 links to a fundraiser that ended nearly a year ago? That's harmless enough, but clearly inappropriate. I always figured we'd fix that and the missing ALT tag when we rewrote the image hosting stuff—I didn't realize it would take this long. Strangely, only one person (gooner, in September) has ever mentioned it to me.

Anyway, this is a good opportunity for volunteers interested in image hosting and the IMG tag to do some writing.
