Questions about Discourse and its functions

As far as I’ve been able to tell, it’s not possible to stretch an image using the Markdown syntax (though it does allow you to set a width or height to scale the image to proportionally) – but you can use a HTML img tag: (The image here is not only minimized, but stretched as well.)

The syntax for this is <img src="[…]" width=123 height=456> – for example, the image above has the source <img src="upload://ikwBl6z4zZKW3XIoX3jSPFWIwi6.png" width=64 height=48>.
