Right, so, this is a thing now. It exists.
I still have a lot of configuration to go, including the look and name of the utility, increasing the filesize limit, increasing the variety of file formats allowed, as well as setting it to user only uploading (since atm it functions like Imageshack in that anybody can upload images to it). I may leave that alone though, depending on whether or not we utilise the iFrame tool--a nifty little thing that could allow us to inset the uploader directly here on the forums.

In any case though:

It's there and it works, so feel free to make an account and start using it. I've noticed it's slightly slow to actually upload, but its recall is lightning fast. I hotlinked the background of my homepage to my first test image and there's no delay at all bring the image up when I open my browser, even when my IC's being laggy like it is now.

Post any questions or suggestions here, please.

It would certainly be useful to have a larger filesize limit - everything taken on my camera is currently too large to upload without editing first (though I often do shrink photos before displaying them online anyway). But other than that, this looks to be a nice, straightforward image host. Thank you for your work.

Good news:
-User Only Uploading has been affected
-Max filesize has been increased to 10 MB. This is pretty decent in my experience, but if we need to push it higher, feel free to suggest it. I won't go above 20 though. That's pretty huge. It would take a while to recall the image.
-Thumbnails have been configured to display as compressed jpgs. This only impacts the thumbnails that give you an idea of which image you're looking at, not the image itself. This will enable faster display times on the gallery pages.
-Name changed; banner and CSS modifications to come.

Yeah, I kinda wish I had a way to make it remember you so you didn't have to log in again every time you navigate away from the site.

I've tested a File, and it uploaded marvellously.

Do we have to have a separate account for it? Because I tried logging in with my forum handle and password, and it said, "No user account was found matching the information provided. Please try again."

Yes, you need a separate account. It's a facility for Mercury users, not an integrated part of Mercury itself.
