New users find us because they have a bike problem they need to get fixed. When they create an account they have a have a single reputation point, which prevents them from embedding pictures in their question posts.
Often, new users don't have the vocabulary to describe their problem clearly. Photos are then called for in comments. Sometimes the new user can provide a link to photos somewhere else and a helpful community member edits them into the question.
Wouldn't it be better to let new users embed pictures straight away? Does Stack Exchange permit this for individual communities?
