Allow us to make posts and replies using images/gifs without text.

An Idea

Currently, you're required to have at least 2 characters to post a reply with an image or a gif. Which can be simply bypassed by alt+255 or plethora of other methods. 

Just might as well make like a tree and get that requirement out of here. Reaction gifs are a large part of the World Wide Meme so it'd be nice to be able to do that. 

For those worried about trash spam, don't worry. Since this will most likely be in a reply to someone you won't see it unless you go into the reply dropdown.

    I'm not sure if I'm just interpreting you wrong, but I don't see any point to the idea. Just making an html tag for an image takes up, what:

    <img src="">

    That's 12 characters and doesn't even include the URL of the image itself or the optional height/width parameters. How you are unable to post or reply with images alone is a wonder for me.

    Now if the idea is to help people grow lazier, that's another story. I personally find it to have no uses in any case.

    Well, it used to work before. I used to submit song vids minus the text at the "What are you listening to..." thread.

    While this feels easier to use, I agree with AoM below.

    Posts being "just replies" doesn't assuage my concerns over the feature being abused. We can't do content analysis of posts that are just images, meaning we wouldn't able to detect if they're being used improperly. At least when there is some text, there's usually some indicator with the quality of the content.
