at work I notice that quite a bunch of third party image uploading services are blocked. Also people tend to ask how to include images in posts to clarify their question.
I think it would be handy/cool/awesome/... if there would be support to automatically upload an image to imgur.com and have the url placed inside the post. Drag & drop from Explorer or Finder would also be handy.

I've thought about this myself quite a bit.
I'm always using images within my posts and generally Imgur has always been the most reliable, quickest with regards to actually getting them uploaded and usable. I would be all on board with a feature that would allow users to easily drag or upload an image
into their posts. Many users often have a difficult time with this process and eventually just end up sending PMs instead of messing with the HTML in the uploader.
I know that JustBoil.me has a plug-in for uploading images within TinyMCE (the Editor that these forums use) for handling this, which might be worth exploring.

Thanks for bringing this up. We are going to discuss this topic of images in the forums next week and we'll see where we go from there.
