I thought we had a guide on this back in the old days. I can't seem to find it. Here's a brand new guide as I noticed our new users are still struggling on how to upload images in our site. This is more convenient for us mods because we have to repost how to upload images time and time again for our new users. This helps to save time and convenience.
First, you want to find your image that you want to use. Most sites will usually work. I suggest reuploading any images you get from scanlation sites as those prevent hotlinking.
You right click and view image. Then, you right click and copy the image url.
From the computer (I suggest using the PC rather than mobile devices if you can), go to your post's text editor.
Click on this picture icon between the email and video button.
This pop menu will come out. Paste/CTRL + V your image url into the image url field:
If you are on a mobile device and have no access to a working PC, you have to do everything in BBCODE.
You can alter the percentage of the image size after max-width:##%
This is optional but recommended for the battle forums as most unofficial scanlation sites have bad URL. It's best to reupload your scans through a third party website. I recommend Imgur.
Once you created your imgur account, go to the drop down menu under your username where it says images. Now, upload your image.
Imgur is quite convenient because it has a BBCODE field (the fifth option) and you can click on the copy button. Boom, you are done.
You can also make adjustments on resizing images through Imgur by clicking on sizes which is on the bottom of the menu.
You click on link codes after uploading your image.
You click on the field below img and it will generate a BBcode.
I don't recommend Comic Vine since it had its url changed in the past when Gamespot bought it in 2012 and then merged it in February 2016. Even though the URL should redirect for any images used prior 2016, I found out my manga covers I used for the manga discussion threads all broke. I like using the manga covers from Comic Vine than Wikia's manga covers because A) Wikia images tend to shrink or get blurry B) PikaHyper and wiki editors upload hi res manga covers. We don't know if Comic Vine will change its URL due to uncertainty with the staff and company.
Anyways, you make your Comic Vine account.
Upload your image via "Add your image" button on the right hand side. Click save.
Then, you have to right click and view image because this isn't an image hosting site persay, so there are no fancy BBCODE or options.
You have your image url which you copy and paste into Anime Vice Boards with the right image BBCODE.
You upload the image. You click on the drop down menu to find BBCODE. You click on copy button in the text field below.
Fleet Admiral: Lemme go hop on the poll real quick. You only need three to rub an RPG. I don’t plan on going full on original universe yet. Kinda want to start with low pressure fandom roleplay.

Old Man Dream: Just wrapped up Trigun Stampede. Will be interesting to whip up a review for, but probably not for reasons folks would be expecting. Will get something together for this sometime this weekend.

Master Menos: OH! Don't worry about any spoilers for the descriptions of the 2nd Seasons from this point! They'll always use the one from the starting season! I remember the goof-up with God of HighSchool's Banner then. Looking back at that was hilarious!

Taka: Happy 4th of July! I have to make a new Imgur account. I don't know what happened to my old one. Crunchyroll changed its image url. I think the recent threads have dead image links.

Master Menos: Happy 4th of July, everyone! Yeah, Imgur's been on a rocky roller coaster this year.

Taka: Neon Genesis Evangelion collaborating with Shin Megami Tensei - interesting idea. Too bad, it was for a phone game.
