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

On some sites in Stack Exchange, for example Stack Overflow, when user with 10 or less reputation points try to submit a post containing embedded images (i.e. ![][...] markup or direct <img> tag) he will be greeted with such error:

Fair enough, it was already suggested to improve this behavior but I ask for something else.

The current remove new user restrictions help center page says:

New users cannot:

  • post more than two hyperlinks at a time, either in a post or their user profile
  • contribute answers to protected questions
  • ask or answer questions too rapidly

Images are not mentioned at all.

Can you please add another item saying new users cannot post images as well, in the relevant sites?

IIRC privilege pages can be edited by users with more than 2k rep on on the privileges page. You have the necessary rep, I don't. Do it. – Johannes Kuhn Dec 1 '13 at 11:53
@JohannesKuhn not anymore, it was possible before the help center was introduced and now only moderators can edit those pages. Also, here on Meta user with 1 rep can post images so it will be wrong. – Shadow Wizard Dec 1 '13 at 11:55
Argh. This should be reintroduced. (Or did someone do stupid things with that?) – Johannes Kuhn Dec 1 '13 at 11:56
@JohannesKuhn feel free to start such feature request, but I highly doubt the team will do that - maybe you'll get some official answer as to "why" though. :) – Shadow Wizard Dec 1 '13 at 11:57
As far as I remember that restriction was removed for most sites, so this text would have to be adjusted on a per-site level – Mad Scientist Dec 1 '13 at 12:02
@ShaWizDowArd Done – Johannes Kuhn Dec 1 '13 at 12:05
@Mad true, updated the question to reflect this. – Shadow Wizard Dec 1 '13 at 12:06
