I'd definitely agree with the search function. And it would probably be nice to be able to edit the original post.

In my experience (I have an engineering degree and have done a lot of computer related work) often simplicity is best. Allowing attachments can open up a can of worms (do they have malware) and videos/photos can also be problematic due to people abusing it (nudity, violence, excessively large images, etc.).

I tend to be on the "older" boards like Bogleheads, another one that doesn't allow much of what you are asking for (although their search is good and you can edit posts) and a sports one that is also rather primitive.

I'm not saying you can't do those things but I'm not sure if it is worth the cost to upgrade these boards.

Anyhow good luck and thanks for the posts you have made. I'm usually a lurker since I'm not in the business.
