    Hello!! Images I try to upload aren't showing at all. They were working before, but now none of the images or gifs are showing up at all. (;;) Is there any way I can fix this?

    Sorry folks! We just rolled out a quick fix for that. Everything should be up and running at the moment.

    I don't have that arrow to upload a file. I used it a few days ago, but now it's gone.

    @ExclusivelySiri we're working on rolling out message editing + deleting in the near future. Stay tuned for that!

    @Sacronik That's no good. We just pushed an update that should fix that. If not, I'll log it with the engineering team.

    giphy integration on the windows client is broken, it will pick the first letter but then doesn't display any gifs (the loading animation still plays though)

    @Cilantrelle... how long do the pics stay on my server? We're actually considering setting up our Discord server as a small Instagram/Facebook type meeting place for our guild users!

    @Cap Text chat + images in a channel are stored forever! Until someone decides to clear them. That's an awesome idea!

    @Cilantrelle .. that's awesome! Exactly what I was hoping you'd say. Is there a way to select a group of text or pics and delete them? Right now we're only able to select one message (or pic) > cog wheel > delete. If you have to do that to a few dozen (or hundred haha) it can get a bit tedious. Can you tell me of a faster way? Thanks, and we're loving this thing so far!

    @Cap nothing official like that yet. =[ It's in the works though. If you're super desperate and a bit tech savvy, you can ask BooBot to do it (he's a bot made from the guys over at the Discord API server, they'd be happy to help you). Otherwise, hang tight, and we'll have a solution for you soon!

    I imagine there are tons of images uploaded daily. Is there a point when you think having to store all these images might tax hosting? Is it better to link from another site or do you feel it best to upload from the client :)

    @Kendjin We have Discord set up so that bandwidth-hogging images and links don't use too much until they're loaded on screen. GIF away!

    We are having issues with Gifs not playing. Even when opening them all we get is "Fail to load the image." Are there any limitations to gif size or length?

    Why when I click on an image to open the original does it display as QuickTime? Seems to only affect .png images.

    @Sail the GIF size limit is around 8 mb, I believe. @Stephanie is the image opening in QuickTime? What exactly happens?

    How about a cancel upload button, so back out of a larger download?

    How about a remove button, for when we select the wrong image by mistake?

    My clan would like the ability to draw on top of images before sending in chat. This is for attack strategy sharing. Bindle chat had this feature. Can this be implemented?

    @Ephram @IngameProgrammer @Jeremy all of these would be good feature requests for feedback.discordapp.com! Be sure to add & upvote them there. =]

    My friend uses Discord on his iphone. No gifs he sends work. If we both send the same gif you can see that his image is a smaller file size and has been compressed. Any ideas?

    My .gif files are only coming up as links. I cannot get it to play within discord.
