    Posting images?

    How do I post an image in this forum without linking to it? I see images all over the rampage forum, but the image button asks for a url

    How to post images on The Abe Forum

    Don't be put off by the detail that follows. It's really simple; we're just being thorough for your own benefit.

    Before you get started:

    Read our Image Posting Policy and our Linking Policy.

    Find a "place" to host your images.
    The Forum no longer accommodates the hosting of outside files, including images. This means that your image will have to be stored elsewhere but still be accessible by the Forum software. As of this writing, there are a number of free image hosting services available on the Internet. While the Forum makes no endorsements nor recommendations of services, past Forum friends have used services such as Flickr, tinypic and picasa to host their pictures. (Please consult the list below* for a list of services with which Forum friends have had difficulties in the past Sign up for one that's appropriate to your needs. (Don't forget to check their Privacy and Usage Policies.)

    To post:

    1. Make sure you have the rights to post your desired image in your post. (We're not really sticklers about that here, but if you're swiping someone else's intellectual property and they complain to David, he will take your image down, if you don't have the rights to post it here.)

    2. Check in with your Emotional Guidance System regarding your image.
    Does this image feel good to share with the Forum? (Note: Normally, we encourage our Forum friends to feel "better." However, when posting images on the Forum, we ask you to use the higher standard of "feeling good" when you select your images to post.)

    3. Check in with our Image Posting Policy to make sure that you're posting your image in the appropriate sub-forum.

    4. Cut and Paste the image into your post.
    The exact procedure to do this will vary depending on your own individual device and the web browser that you're using, but it's usually a simple process using those terms.

    5. Preview (Check in with your guidance again)
    None of us (even the Abe-est of pro's) really like having our posts fiddled with, so it's always a good idea to make sure you're Aligned and then to Preview your post. Click on the Go Advanced link at the bottom right corner of the Editing window. That will take you to the Advanced Editing page.

    6. Check for links.
    As you know from reading our Linking Policy, active links from your Forum posts to other sites can create issues for the smooth operation of the Forum, so we only can accommodate them in some specialised instances. When we're dealing with images, sometimes those links can "sneak" in without our knowing it. So we ask all members' assistance in double-checking your own posts to catch these active links.

    From the Advanced Editing page, click on Preview Post (at the bottom right corner of the Editing window), which will display (at the top of the page) how your post will appear when it's posted in the thread. (Important note: It has not yet posted in the thread.) Make sure it's satisfactory to you and then click Submit Post.

    Now, if you're asking why I removed the images in your new thread (and it's always nicer to ask about Moderator actions via PM), that's a different question than the one you'd asked in this thread.

    The two images you used had URLs (or web addresses) on them. Those URLs go against our Image Posting Policy as well as our intention to keep the Forum free of promotions.

    No. Pictures are only allowed in the Rampages of Appreciation, Practicing the Teachings and The Playroom sub-forum. We are not permitted to post videos to the Forum in any sub-forum.

    Appropos of your recent thread, why would you care if the Peanut Gallery thinks your post is "some bluff"? That's their pie. It doesn't have to be yours.
