Lack of interest Temporary image location when uploading attachments visible to members

I've had a couple of members who have uploaded images to their post, copied the image URL, then inserted the image in BB code rather than as an attachment.

The problem is that before the image is posted the URL is a temporary one. It works for a while, and the member sees a duplicate image after posting. They delete the duplicate, and a few hours later the temporary one (with temp_hash in the URL) they inserted in BB code disappears.

It might be worth considering not showing the temporary location quite so prominently (there is a blue link to attachments uploaded but not posted and the tiny thumbnail in uploaded attachments links to a temporary image).

Here is an image inserted with the temporary address (screenshot of the attachments uploaded):

Here is the real image:
