Sometimes I put a picture/gif with the post, and some time after it disappears, but I was always able to post it at the beginning. I don't know why you can't do that.
Maybe the image that you were trying to link has hotlinking disabled on it's server? I often have that with images I post here so to get around it, I save the image to my hard drive then upload it and that overcomes the issue.
I tried several images, both downloaded to my device and directly linked...I can neither upload or link.
Sorry you did say that in your post, i missed that Well it's weird for sure but I'm sure there's a technical explanation for it and not a censorship one. If it was the latter, it would have happened to others who post actually icky things and you never do. As far as I'm aware, even trolls just get their pics removed, they don't have their pic posting rights revoked.
One thing I can think of to try, is if you are able to log in to AM using a completely different computer, and see if the issue happens. That will remove the browser and operating system as variables.
You are so much more forgiving than I...
Hehe well I guess I just answered these exact same questions for about 22 years in IT. So while I can't give you a definitive answer, I statistically lean towards certain more likely conclusions. It is of course possible that I'm totally wrong and James was possessed by demons this morning and has been tinkering with your account. However it's much more likely that it's a really dumb issue with a flash update gone wrong or something equally as annoying and difficult to diagnose.
Regardless, it ended in other happenings. All for the good I can infer...correct?
Usually issues I've come across ended often by themselves as mysteriously as they started. Software glitches can be like that. Occasionally though it can be due to human error, a change that's made with the implications not thought through. Mostly it's not someone being bad on either the user or the admin side. I wish I could think of something definitive though and solve it for you. These things are frustrating. I had one myself this morning.... I nearly logged a tech support issue until I accidentally came across the cause.
I tested for glitches...none found. Whether it was intentional or not is now irrelevant.
It seems have followed the general lifecycle of most of these weird things. Like you said though, now irrelevant but glad it's all good
I downloaded several and tried uploading, I tried linking several, I tried clearing my cache, restarting both browser and device, etc.
Have you tried closing your browser, step by step, clicking all of the tabs closed and then restarting it?
That doesn't affect the censorship of the site...
I still think it's a browser issue.
EDIT: I hope you remember your passwords or have them written down, the full clean usually takes out the automatic fill-ins as well.
It is NOT a browser issue. I have NO problem uploading or loading other images.
Just trying to be helpful. Stay calm. Breathe. In... and out... In... and out. Now. Does your browser say, that "this is not a proper picture" or something like that? That happens to me too. It's a glitch. Technical glitch with the site. Not censorship. Just pick another similar picture and it should upload just fine. That happens like one percent of the time, the glitch I mean.
Nope. All pictures assiciated with my post are denied. Nothing technical about it Zonkey....it is censorship plain and simple.
I seriously doubt that Boz. I can't imagine the time and trouble it would take to censor one user - and for what?
What are you talking about?
I am not allowed to post an image on this site.
The sand line image? It sounds really odd, there must be more to it.
why would a line in the sand be censored??
Pretty strange, all right. That has happened to me before, not being able to post an image with a "question". I didn't get any kind of notification saying it was not allowed, though, it just didn't show up when I submitted the post.
No notification, it just would not let me, no matter what I did, what browser I used, etc. I tried it several times and several ways.
I hope you don't mind, but I "suggested" a photo for your post, just to see what would happen. I should have asked first....
The question you wanted to ask sounds interesting, by the way.
That's cool. That is actually one I tried to use, as is the second one Linn posted.
The one I downloaded has the hand in there, and I'm glad you're okay with me doing that. I wouldn't want someone to be "suggesting" a photo for one of my posts without asking me first.
It took at least 3 hours for my suggested photo to show up though, and I when I did that I got an Amirite notice saying it would be there right away...
What are the pictures depicting?
Simply a line in the sand. That was it. And Amirite chose to censor that. SMH
Very odd-but it wouldn't let me write b u m the other week.Hope that got through.
