Since the old quotation format doesn't include any identity info like a post id, I guess it'd be really difficult to accomplish it automatically. Maybe we can just ask the users who quoted those links to remove them from their posts, as an image in a quote is not necessary and unsightly.Dinoguy1000 wrote: ↑Mon Feb 25, 2019 3:03 amIf I had a good handle on how the report system works, I would suggest to report those posts so mod could update the link(s) in them (this would also work for any other posts). However, if reporting impacts the poster's account in some way (e.g. if we had a karma system, and reported posts counted as negative karma), this wouldn't work so well.
Actually, I could think of one. If you access to all your posts from your profile, you can search within your posts for the keyword "http:" or the domain name of the host where you placed these images. But since "http" is marked as a too common word by the search query, some adaptions to the searching rules is required.
However there's more circumstances to worry about if we're to promote this movement, like users who have been inactive for a very long time and could had abandoned their accounts. Besides, is it all about links to images? Waht about http links to web pages? If it's the former case I think the final antidote for a full cleansing would be forcing those URLs to link to https.
