1. if you upload a number of images, it keeps the topic from getting crazy long and speeds page loads.
2. if you upload a number of images, if you just click the arrow to move to the next image instead of having to scroll up/down a bunch. Pretty much like a gallery.
However, we'll be upgrading the board software to a newer version soon as this may change. But for now, they upload as clickable thumbnails.

They're not uploading to our site, they are hosting the image elsewhere and inbedding it in their post. Essentially, a call to an external image when the topic is loaded.
Again, with version 3.3 of our forum software coming soon, this may change.
