I dont want to have to post twice. Since I use these images for aars on my blog. The interface here is nigh on ...well that would be whining.
In case you were not aware - when composing a post, in the icon menu, there is one of a camera with an up arrow: . When you click that, you can select an image which will then be uploaded to your personal gallery and the link to it inserted in your post (AAR).
But I agree about how photos are handled in the geek. I have always thought that images should be in personal galleries first. Then a person can nominate an image for a game gallery and if approved, it is moved over so as to avoid the double-upload conundrum you mention.
