Can't post 'Caption this Pic' anymore?? (vanity)
9-20-10

Posted on 09/20/2010 2:39:51 PM PDT by pillut48

I've tried twice to post a "Caption this Pic" but have been thrown off FR each time and had to log back in--are these not allowed any more? Do the admin mods just yank them without letting posters know they can't be posted? < puzzled >

LOL. It was a Drudge headline awhile ago, no reference, so I don’t know where it came from—it’s still on Drudge’s page on the right side column...Obama on Wall Street, it’s a very VERY goofy pic!

Wish the mods would send a little note to our FReepmail saying that’s a no-no or something so I’ll quit trying, LOL.

AH! Now that I have your attention on that subject..
What if the image is sourced from a private photobucket account after screenshotted (is that a word?) from their site?

Oh, hi, Admin! Didn’t know that! How can you tell it’s an AP image for future reference?

FR has always been closed-captioned for the thinking impaired.

URL? What URL?

To save images, I right click on the pic with my mouse, choose “save image”, a save box pops up, wants to know where to save it, and the name—if it’s a mile long (this one was: ‘capt.4eb5952647d14eb58697f7a0167d9f2f-4eb5952647d14eb58697f7a0167d9f2f-0’) I give it a shorter title (’obamastoopidlook’) then go to tinypic and do a browse, click on the jpg and upload to FR...where do you find the URL for an image?

Ohhhh

Peanuts

I had a LIVE thread of a White House event pulled during that event.

It ook the mod nearly 20 minutes to wake up to the fact that it was a LIVE White House event and restore the thread — after much of the event was over.

Mods are mysterious. One never knows what they will pull or why.

Seeing that your typical Mod reviews probably a hundred threads in the time it takes you to post one, it’s not surprising at all.

Weird. Nope, I pasted and cut EXACTLY what popped up on ‘save image as’ (minus the apostrophes at beginning and end)
‘capt.4eb5952647d14eb58697f7a0167d9f2f-4eb5952647d14eb58697f7a0167d9f2f-0’

That ‘http://d.yimg.com/a/p/ap/20100920'; isn’t there!

...I’m using Firefox, would that make a difference? Does it have a different addy in MS or Linux or whatever else someone may be using?

Um, “stealing” a pic from AP and posting it from say image shack doesn’t make it any less of a violation of copyright.

you might try “view image info” after you right click.
I did have the “ap” as shown by the moderator.

Oh, wait, I see, I think I figured it out—if you click on *’view image’* (which I never do because it’s already *there*) you get the website addy the admin posted...been a FReeper since ‘04 and never knew that! Okay, live and learn. AP=BAD/EVIL/VERBOTEN. Got it! :-)

Still, gotta admit, that’s a perfect pic for captioning, LOL.
