I was about to post a funny comic strip, when I realised, you can't post pictures. Sad This would be another great thing to consider adding to BuxR! Smile

    This could be added in the future, but probably for the discussion board only. Hosting images raises a bunch of issues, like copyright, bandwidth, etc.

      Part of the issue is that people often cannot identify what are "public domain" materials versus privately held, and sometimes its just unclear.

      Some general guidelines to determine if something is public domain or not:
      - Written works (including films & comics) less than 50 years old are not usually public domain.
      - If its produced by a government agency then generally its considered public domain.
      - If you are not sure then you don't post it directly, and just link to it instead.

      "Snarky" There is a term I have no heard in a long time Razz

      I've dabbled in a lot of things. Kind of Jack-of-All Trades but master of none. But yes, I've had a little legal training. Thought about pursuing law, but have not decided yet on that account.

      If nothing else I just seem to know a lot of weird stuff.

      The traditional way will not work. The forum engine parses out all URL's in the comments and converts them into clickable links. This is why your HTML codes didn't produce images
