When I'm going to cache it all, they can just upload it as an attachment. Can't they?
It increases the bandwidth quite a lot, and members can make attachments.

However, over the years, we experienced that most forum members don't like attachments, and prefer to insert the pictures in their messages as required. Not much an issue for just one image, but quite some if you have to tell about mathematic, scientific or medical research. And specifically in these areas a missing image source may void the whole discussion.
