I forgot to mention this earlier(I found this out on Thursday, and I am surprised this hasn't come up earlier). It seems that the links to images (replaced by (Image Removed)) for the people in Dial-up mode are not working. Everytime I click on the links I get a page not found error.

In IE, it seems to be the qoutes around the link that are the problem. (If I remove them after the fact, the link works)

In Mozilla, the "/redirect/" is gone completly from the link and the quotes are replaced with "%20".

I thought it was my PC at work, but I can repeat the error at home as well.

Just an FYI, as I am not in Dial-up mode that often.

Well that's weird -- I believe I'm fine, & haven't noticed anything odd. (And I live in Dial-Up mode.) Wrestling/Captionomics & Random/CharleyImages have both been OK for me when I've looked at them.

I'm Mozilla 1.6, FWIW ...

I think this may be related to something that Chris was working on with URL wrapping for long URLs. I don't know that I know enough about what he was doing to work on it, though.



Willful ignorance of science is not commendable. Refusing to learn the difference between a credible source and a shill is criminally stupid.

You wanted the best, you got... Out of Context Quote of the Week.

Well, I can say that it works unless the poster puts in extra quote marks. This is in Firefox 0.9.1, too. So unless it got fixed before I noticed, there's nothing inherently wrong with it that I can see.

I FINALLY figured out what people were talking about here. I believe I have reworked the code that does this so it works whether the image link is surrounded by quotes or not. (Thanks to sweetroll)

FWIW, I went back and tested the links that caused the problem for me in the first place, and they all work now.

Thanks! :)

I am VERY disappointed in the people (person) who are (is) supposed to be watching our counter while I'm on vacation. We ALMOST missed it, but back on Saturday, the Googlebot scored the Megaclick.
