On most Stack Exchange sites, new users can embed images in posts regardless of reputation. But there are a few sites where embedded images are not accepted from users with reputation less than 10. What are they?

As of now, the following sites require 10 reputation points to embed images:

  • Stack Overflow
  • Server Fault
  • Ask Ubuntu
  • Super User
  • Mathematics

Sources: 1, 2.

  • I'm pretty sure this also includes all beta sites, since I had to deal with this today -- having closed a question as "unclear" where I and others had said an illustration was required, the OP fairly commented that s/he could not do so. Catch-22. This is a thoughtless crap vs. thoughtless crap feature. – goldilocks Jun 18 '15 at 8:10
  • Users can still post links to images (up to two), the restriction mentioned here is on embedding images. I will look into beta restrictions. – user259867 Jun 18 '15 at 13:43
  • No-repro. An attempt to post an image as a new user of a beta site (from private browsing session) was not blocked. – user259867 Jun 18 '15 at 17:20
  • I have not tried a dummy account myself, but s/he was pretty insistent, and I don't see why s/he'd lie; I actually re-opened the question because of this although I doubt it will help. I have noticed questions around the site where a new user has obviously tried to use a link to an online image, but the image does not appear (and there is image markdown ![desc][N] in the post); if the link is good I can then edit it in. Go figure about that stuff. – goldilocks Jun 18 '15 at 17:30
  • I actually noticed this question because of that question ("What a coincidence!"). I was thinking to ask for some kind of definitive spec regarding points and privileges (the one in the help center is obviously not that) so I don't get caught assuming someone could have done something but did not bother. – goldilocks Jun 18 '15 at 17:32
  • This post, which you edited, had an image in it from the beginning. From 1 rep user. I used SEDE query to find these. – user259867 Jun 18 '15 at 18:00
  • Point taken! I will have to set up a dummy account for myself so next time I can explain definitively what's up and what's not (but it would be nice to have this stuff spelled out somewhere so I did not have to). I notice that user has accounts on S.U. and Mathematics with 1 rep, so likely s/he just assumed there was this limitation. If there were that definitive list, it would be good to include limitations from other sites ("post image: 0 rep") to avoid that confusion. Thanks for this. :) – goldilocks Jun 18 '15 at 18:15
