Pictures are powerful tools for explaining, it should be well worth the security risks, since they should be manageable with size constraints and anti virus software. It is quite possible to avoid them all together by implementing an online drawing software such as eg literallycanvas in the forum (although this might put people of if they can't use their favourite graphics application) and only accept pictures from there. Or minimize them by only allowing frames with the actual content on other sites such as tumblr or youtube. Just me brainstorming here...
Image and video simulation. CONSIDER IT AN ACCESSIBILITY TOOL.
Temple Grandin is an autistic with a PHD. In one of her books she speculates that 20 to 30 percent of the population thinks in images not words. I know that Linux purest are all about coding and the terminal and can understand and appreciate the passion. From what I have read and experienced about the Mint community is there desire to make things work well. While this is not my idea I could see this development accelerate the expansion of the Mint community. Any of you in the community I believe would embrace her desire to fine a simple and humane approach to solving what had been seen as unsolvable issues.
Thank you Creators
Users should be able to block graphics content so the risk would be optional.
Why shouldn't the server be able to run a file consistancy or even a virus check?
Any links (e.g. those from tiny.url) or qr codes posted somewhere are more dangerous.
the security risk is too high. any imaginable payload can be stuffed into an image file.
In a world seemingly obsessed with visual stymulii this is a no brainer!

Allow more than one uploaded attachment.
Really, it could be any kind of attachment: Video, Sound file, script/program [but, running in a sandbox ... how to avoid malware promulgation?]
One picture worth a thousand words!
Realy good idea!!!
Really good idea !

The user community are likely to stop using the community site if there is no feedback provided by the dev team or updates on progress where implementation is constrained by technical/funding issues.
This deserves better communication from the team.
Good idea when necessary. Not always necessary
It could be a screen capture, sketched your idea, or used screen capture to help build the concept clarity; a screen capture submission may be easiest to ensure compatibility.
