Here is an idea I have been thinking about for the Forum.
How about having a "view pictures only" button at the top of each thread. This would help greatly in viewing many mod threads.
This button would only show the pictures in the thread and it would not show all the BS inbetween.
It could be switchable on/off so that if you see something you like you could turn if off and see what was said. Other than that you could view a thread just by the pics if one so desired.
