I'm a new poster at Stack Overflow. Well, not yet actually.
In an effort to make my question as clear as possible, I've created an illustration of what I'm trying to accomplish along with an illustration of the problem I am facing. After composing my question and adding my images, I clicked "Post Your Question", and was notified that users without 10 reputation points cannot post images. It was further explained as a spam prevention mechanism.
I clicked "Post Your Question" again, just to see if it might work, and then I was presented with a CAPTCHA (maybe a reCAPTCHA) to verify my alive-ness. I thought perhaps that would have been enough, but I was sent back to the question composition page and supplied with the same message regarding images.
The 10 reputation point requirement seems redundant to me as there is already a CAPTCHA in place, albeit for another purpose. It has been a hindrance to my participation. Though I understand it is not very difficult to attain 10 points, and I probably could illustrate my problem with text characters, this still seems like something that should be rectified.
