I can't upload a picture to the forum. Which forum do I post to regarding this issue?

The community managers can usually help. @dru @A-B could help.

This is a known issue. I'm not sure why it's taking so long to get it fixed.

Try dragging a picture into the edit window instead.

I've tried all three methods (upload from computer, dragging and dropping, link to URL).

 

Can someone make an announcement when it is fixed? I have an issue which is difficult to describe without a picture.

I've been waiting a long time to be able to post photos also. One suggestion you can try in the mean time is maybe upload the image to imgur or something similar and just include a link in your post here when asking the question.

I posted the picture to an external site (OneDrive).

I wish there was a place to report forum problems. For example, I can't edit or delete my posts.

Editing and deleting posts was disabled due to heavy abuse by spammers. Unknown if or when they'll bring that feature back.

I meant editing my own posts.

The spammers would post something clean and then come back later to edit in the spam on their own posts. The only solution at the time was to remove editing to all but the admins.

What about using community rankings, building and granting trust gradually over time?

I believe something like that has been suggested already. It may depend if the forum software allows that. I'm not familiar with how this software works behind the scenes so I can't say for sure.
