    I'd like to be able to upload a file (like I can here) to conversations. I work with artists and we're going back and forth a lot, so to show them images embedded in the conversation, I've go to upload them and link to them.

    That's it :D

    ?? (Or easier yet, just drag'n'drop; I never use the upload button.)

    You seem to have more options than I do...
    (Drag and drop gives a red-tinted window when the file is being held over it)

    Well, that's odd. Is it a moderator thing? Seems a rather weird restriction if so.

    I would agree. I really think it used to be allowed, but I can't remember for certain.

    Could be a setting glitch when they switched back to the good forums.

    I have the "upload a file" button in this thread. In private conversation I'm not seeing it though.

    Hey folks, I think we had a permissions issue - i've fixed it now. Can you let me know if you are now able to attach?

    Yes, but you're not in a conversation, you're posting on the forums, which has always worked.
