The worst day photographing dragonflies is better than the best day working! :)

They worked when posted. Snip seems to work intermittently, but works most of the time. Try again later.

I recently tried Tiny's version but couldn't access their site at all!

Post the original URL as well. That may not end up being clickable, depending on the format, but at least it will be available for copy-and-paste.

I suppose so. The idea of making the posts less cluttered will be turned on its head.

I've e-mailed the editor of Snip, telling him what I think of the site performance against its message "...This may cause intermittent issues, usually no more than 3-5 minutes ..." together with a previous scrapping of a snipped URL because it had been used as spam.

For anti-clutter satisfaction we could post like this, eg:

Code: Select all

Words to link to [url=http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1369029/Dermacentor-reticulatus-Ticks-European-continent-discovered-UK.html]this [/url]
which simply appears in the thread:
Words to link to this

and avoids linking through another site.

The links do work for me fine.

You guys over there do know about free range chickens, right? :)
