In Response To: Posting with URL image links ()

I am glad that Mark has posted this reminder, as we have been spending [wasting] too much time approving posts from the Moderated bin, cleaning posts that have made it onto the forum, etc.

I don't use PhotoBucket or any of the other photo hosting services, but -- in order to include a photo in your posting -- the URL that you paste into your message should end in .JPG [the ones ending in URL are causing the problems].

Mark and I are happy to serve as Moderators of the forums, but please help is keep this housekeeping / clean-up work to a minimum.



: Hi.

: I have mentioned this a couple of times before, but I may need to
: reiterate.

: - Please do not post image links that include
: "URL" markers.

: - Any post with those markers in will
: automatically go to moderation.

: - If your post does not appear, this is likely to be the reason
: why. Please do not resubmit the post several
: times without deleting the URL codes. Each one will go to
: moderation.

: - Please use the direct links from your photo
: host, or edit the link yourself so it only
: includes the [ IMG ] text.jpg [/ img ] (spaces added by me, not
: used in a real image link) portion.

: - The moderators will no longer review and approve posts with URL
: image links. These will be simply deleted instead.

: Thank you!

: Mark
