I have a question.

Why NS Forums blocked Images from Discord? And what is the Real Reason for That?

The linked post is the full explanation.
Max: The code changelog says, "Added 'butthole' by mod request"
Lenyo: This dilemma needs an option that Luna would support in RL.

The tao that can be told is not the eternal Tao. The name that can be named is not the eternal Name. The unnamable is the eternally real. Naming is the origin of all particular things. Free from desire, you realize the mystery. Caught in desire, you see only the manifestations. Yet mystery and manifestations arise from the same source. This source is called darkness. Darkness within darkness. The gateway to all understanding

Then, what [violet] does mean by "Problematic Usage"? Is the Real cause was the NSFW Spam Images from Discord?

Bruh, do you want them to describe in-detail what people were posting or something?

Just accept that Discord images are banned and move on and use an actual image hosting service and not a goddamn chat program.

Last Question, why not NS Create a New Feature that you can upload images from your device or computer? It can make it easy to upload instead of these services.

Because that would require images to be stored on the server, which would need lots of capacity they probably don't have.

So, there is no Probability of Unblocking Discord Images?

Yeah it's one thing for the site to host things like nation flags, regional flags, and even banners because the total storage capacity required for those is basically negligible.

I can't calculate with banners cause you have to unlock those, but even if every extant nation uploaded a flag with the maximum allowed file size [250 KB] and every extant region had a regional flag with the maximum allowed file size [30 KB], NS would only need 57.4 gigabytes (rounded up) of storage space for that.

And in 2020? That's like nothing in terms of space.

No you don't. An explanation has been given. It's not going to be reversed.
