Oh!  It's just the Avengers... well, the kiddie universe version of the Avengers, which includes Spiderman, Hulk, Storm, and Giant-Woman. 

Granted, in that cover they've all been turned into Mobile Organisms Designed Only for Killing, but the original MODOK isn't in the picture.
MODOK, that's who I meant.  I haven't been heavy into Marvel comics since middle school over 25 years ago.  I just knew I remembered a character that looked like a big head with tiny limbs in a hover chair.

Lowky, if you go back into the thread and hit reload (refresh), you can see if the picture host allows hot-linking.  This works on Safari and Firefox.  I don't know about IE.

i copied their link specifically for posting to a forum if it's not showing or is broken it's the hosts fault not mine.  it's not a hot link.  and the image shows just fine for me.  Don't know why you can't see it.  I am using firefox.

Some websites block hotlinking, which is what we do here when we put the url into the image tags.  The only way I know to check if they do that or not is to post it, go back into the thread, and then reload the page.  It shows on your computer, because it's in your cache.  When you reload the page it ignores the cache and gets all of the information again.  If the site allows hotlinking, the image will show.  If they don't, it won't.

Well i just cleared my cache hit reload and it still shows for me, for you it must not be I can't explain why.  Also I didn't add the image tags, I copied it from their share this image link for sharing it on a message board tags already in place, which to me means that they allow this type of hot linking.  I get many posts here that don't show because the domain is blocked  or if not the domain than all images from the domain.  It's China is all I can say.  I don't know why many of my images don't show for you when they show for me.  I am using firefox, with vista 32bit.

if you're using any software/plugins to try to get around chinese internet filtering you may have your http_referrer settings blocked, this makes hotlinking much more difficult to detect.  really, anyone that's curious can quote your post and then copy pasta the link to the address bar.

Well then since i am not using anything like that, and it still doesn't work and like i have said I am posting said image from the image hosts share this image on a forum link.  I will do what you all want and just fucking leave this thread.  Jason I see now why you delete your account.

wait, what?

how did you get something accusational out of me saying that people could just quote your post to see your pic? that's to say, it's not a big deal.  it's what i've said every time this issue has come up.

this game is 100% about the people how are playing and the attitudes they bring to it.  it can be as revealing as a rorschach test, the associations that people choose to make.  or not to make.

it's one thing to decide that you're not having fun and drop out, if we look at posting patterns everyone here has done it, it's quite another to create a bunch of drama and poison the mood for everyone else.  we've been acting like it's socially acceptable for people to be like this.  maybe that's part of the problem.

i duno wat it is that makes images not appear... i mean its not only lowky, and not ALL of the images he posts are blank, and if i quote/modify the post, copy/paste the link, see the image, refresh the page, the image appears in the post...

its just weird.

I'd like to hear my options, so I could weigh them, what do you say?
Five pounds?  Six pounds? Seven pounds?

sorry i posted in a bit of anger about it.  It just seemed that people were saying that I was being an idiot about how I was posting things.  I kept say i was posting the image hosts link for sharing it, so if it is not working, it wasn't my fault.  I am a bit calmer now.  Sorry for getting more upset than I should have.  Can we get back to posting images now please?

i was escalating out of proportion as well, it definitely wasn't just your post.  there's been some bad vibes recently and sometimes you can twist those things inwards so they self-destruct.



hiya!
