Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

There is (apparently) a 100 reputation requirement to upload and post images through chat.

There isn't any easily located documentation on this, however. 100 global reputation is listed as the privilege for creating chat rooms, while the chat FAQ and help both do not mention any restrictions on uploading images.

As such, could somewhere other than Tim Stone finding an ancient chat message from back when it was even higher be used to indicate that there is a reputation requirement in chat for uploading images?

It could be listed in the Create and Edit Chatrooms privilege, we already have 2 privilege items in the list for 100 but neither mentions uploading images to chat. – Ben Brocka Mar 1 '12 at 14:35
Is this 100 reputation including or excluding the association bonus? I have over 100 reputation (but under 200) and do not have the ability to upload images to chat. – crimsonspectre Apr 29 at 13:55

I added it to the privilege wiki

What other new privileges in chat do I get?

At 100 reputation you also get access to the "Upload image" button in chat.
