What if you could include images in with each description on your posts?
I'm not saying that one can post in huge screen shots, but maybe something
like 3"x3" dimensions...
For example; If I have a question about a menu, report, output, error; I could
then put in a quick image example of what I'm looking at.
Maybe if one was so inclined they could build in a cool little 'How-to' tutorial
with their respective screen shots in a forum response to a question.
I wouldn't consider the idea for an extra link or anything, but literally built into
the forum response. All you need to do is scroll down the response, and you can
see what the user is talking about.
A picture is really worth a thousand words.
