Come on people! Just because you're a member of some site and want to link or embed something here to share from there doesn't mean that we'll be able to see it if that site requires membership.

WAKE UP DAMNIT!

Don't know, bendable, but I can give you a couple of specific examples so you know what to look for:

1) If you (generic you, not bendable specifically) are on facebook, and post a link to a facebook resource, you will always see the information. I am not on facebook, so I may or may not see it, depending on if it's tagged as public or whatever.

2) If you have a subscription to a newspaper and post a link to an article in said paper, I probably won't see it as I don't have a subscription. Again, depends on how the article is tagged.




Be careful when following the masses. Sometimes the M is silent.

If you have an image that has extra characters after the normal jpg, png, etc. extension, it will only show as this to everyone else.Frown


An example: "format=jpg&name=small"

This x 1000. If you're going to post in a thread specifically intended for pictures, memes, gifs, or similar, have the decency to do so with things we can all see without having to leave SigForum to do so. Thank you!

I've been really tempted to send e-mails to the offenders about this kind of thing but that would be being a DICK and I don't want to be that guy. Frown

I think if you make it a teaching moment email, it will be well received.
