In the image threads, all images except very small ones have disappeared. I hope they are not lost but will resurface soon ...

Having logged in, the images are visible again. But starting the browser without cookies enabled (equivalent to not being logged in), they still are missing. That's not the way it should be.

One more problem: In the image threads, the Reply button has disappeared. Seems that some experiments have gone wrong ...

Indeed, when you aren't logged in, the images don't show, that was not our intention, but it seems like setting a board to read only prevents guests from viewing attachements.
3dickulus, do you have any idea what could be causing this?
I checked in permissions and guests are explicitely allowed to view attachements, so they should still be visible.
It would be nice if we get it back. And we will find a way, it would work if we manually lock each image thread, instead of the whole board. But before we do this, let's see if there's a simpler (and easier to revert) way.

The reply button is missing on purpose, as stated in the announcement. This is what happens when a board is set to "read only". no more replies, no more new threads.

Now the complete image threads are visible only when you are logged in. Is this a deliberate decision?

that was not the goal and an unwanted side-effect. we're still trying to find a solution everyone can live with.

Bu you should know: If we can't find a proper solution to have both ways, we will stick with our decision to lock imagethreads(while leaving them online, archived) and present images only in the gallery.

What's wrong with just not showing image threads in recent posts ?
The meaning and purpose of life is to give life purpose and meaning.

Nothing, it just isn't as easy as ticking a box in some settings. Probably it's not possible to achieve.
We'll look into it and have a decision in january.
