    We usually catch it eventually, Ren (especially when it's scatterspam), but yeah, sure, you can always point it out.

    I have just joined. What's the criteria for posting artwork on the remakes, please? What resolution do you use, and how do you post it to the discussion?

    @dnewling
    No criteria as far as size and resolution. (I find a width of about 700-800 px to fit well in the post box.
    You need to host them somewhere (your own site, blog, flick, etc.) and use the img button up there in the tag bar to post them here. (uses html syntax)

    @Ariana

    Got it, thank you.

    Can you host them on Photobucket and link them here? Or Facebook?

    I am having difficulty uploading my image here. It is over at Photobucket, and I have tried pasting in the IMG link, but it is not working. Could you offer me some advice, please?

    Photobucket works. Do like thusly:

    1) In photobucket, when you hover over a pic in your albums, some share options appear below the thumbnail. Click in the "Direct Link" field and you will see it then says "copied".

    2) Come here to whitechapel, go to the thread you want to post in, and in the "Add your comments" box you will see some choices. Select "img".

    3) In the dialog that appears, click into it and paste the url you copied from photobucket.

    4) A second dialog will appear asking you to enter alternate text. Put anything in here. This is just some text that will appear if someone's browser cannot render images. That never happens anymore, so it is a charming antiquarian practice. (Do not hurt me dear engineer!)

    5) Then, you will see a link in angle brackets that looks like this: img src="http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b179/billcunningham/colors.gif" alt="swirliefun"

    6) Type any other text you want in the post, then click "add your comments". You will see a lovely image (unless you have a free photobucket account and have exceeded your bandwidth, in which you will see a placeholder image scolding you for exceeding your bandwidth... which, if you think about it, doesn't make a lot of sense as they have to expend bandwidth to display that image. Which means it's not so much the bandwidth as that they hate you and all you hold dear.):

    See? Easy!

    I tried all that before. I'm not sure what kept going wrong. It's taken two more attempts, but Crimson Clown is finally up. Thanks for the advice!

    Dnewling - don't worry, I have a similar problem whenever I try to post a YouTube video.

    Youtube is easy if you post it as a link. Copy the URL of the clip, then select 'link' at the top of your Whitechapel post and paste in the URL -

    Grease Monkey -- Sometimes when I do that it seems to work and other times it doesn't. That's okay though. I just keep previewing my post until it does what I want it to.

    Hi guys.

    I've just been following your discussion about posting links/images. I'm sorry, but I'm having a similar problem to dnewling.

    I've just put up my first post (in Printheads) but the links and images are only appearing in the following format:

    On High Page 1

    This could be me being a plank. Of course, if the image appears above, then we'll know for sure...

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I've tried editing this a couple of times now with no success.

    Ta!

    Jon

    Okay, so the image appears here, but not when I post it in Printheads. Hmmm...

    Any thoughts guys?

    Thanks for the help.

    Jon, there's two little radio buttons under the post box ("text" and "html") -- are you making sure it's "html" that's ticked?

    @Ariana -- I just discovered that the Search page breaks rather badly when a hash character is included in the query...

    Example search: #video

    I suspect the # isn't being escaped properly before being fed to the RegEx functions, and PHP dumps a bunch of errors. Though looking more closely, it seems the search results do indeed appear correctly, below the errors on the page.

    Si, any thoughts on a Pimp/Self-promotion stickied post?
  4.  (9742.39)
    I'll run all-comers things like that once in a while. I think they become problematic when they're permanent.

    Nothing to stop folks starting selfpimpery threads of their own if a new project is in the offing.

    All right. Always feels a little bit like spam but since you're giving it your thankfully non-stickyblessing I'll go ahead.
