OK I'll try to use English this time but on reflection it's probably a stupid idea anyway - basically make it as easy to select a webcam image as it is to select a smiley:
That's the point at which I realised the idea might be a bit stupid.ok, that's what I thought you meant.
So the trick there.. would be showing 100+ odd snowcams to select from
Single 'Insert Cam' button drops down resort list, clicking on resort drops down cam list, clicking on cam then drops down static or live options?
I can't remember a single instance when someone's posted a live cam pic where they weren't referring to conditions at that point in time.Yes, what you say is correct, its the link to live image. So screengrab still necessary for capturing the moment.

Imagine someone working a block of 3 12+ hour shifts, who's not allowed to use their phone at work and is too tired between shifts to catch up on the latest forum posts. So catching up on 3 or 4 days of posts. Reads a 3 day old post "look at how much snow they've made, bet they'll open early". Live feed pic shows muddy grass as far as the eye can see, due to a "pre-frontal".
This feature just makes it easy for people to annoy the **** out of other users. UX curse in my book.
it’s been there for at least 5 years on desktop and not proved to be misused by the community so far.
I assume this embed link is live and updates once copied and posted?
From UX POV this won’t be all that useful given posts are usually referencing/observing to particular change in the cam at that time. Screenshot will still reign supreme in this instance?

Ok, So one of the many reasons for the upgrade was to use an Addon that converts all hotlinked images to attachments - so images are never lost from linkrot and so that weather pages which hotlink a guzillion images have better performance.
This addon is now installed and working
What this means, is that cam urls dropped in from the cam pages, will convert to attachments and become static immediately upon post, capturing that moment in time and no longer updating every 5 min.
