Hello everyone :-)

I'm getting started here and have so far read the site guidelines, the new member guide, tried out some posting, have also read this thread about flick image embedding:
https://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?/forums/topic/97921-flickr-tutorial/

...but I don't understand what I'm doing wrong.

I don't have the "tree picture" to insert any images, why is that...? From all the options described in the above mentioned post I have very few, none that let me insert pictures. The only picture option I have is the "attach file" one down below, which is limited in size for obvious reasons.

Do I have to pass the 10 post barrier in order to be able to insert flickr links?

Any help would be greatly appreciated :-)

Hi.

Simply copy an image link from Flickr (make sure you use an url ending with jpg) and paste it in your topic/post. That’s it. There’s no need to use the insert image button.

Thanks very much Jim!

I tried to directly paste the link before, but it didn't work when I copied the link from the flickr size selection page. Thanks to your tip with the url ending, I tried copying the image by right-clicking on the image itself, instead of the link to the image* - and now it works :-)

*...I hope this explanation is in any way clear ;-)

Great, exactly as I always have experienced Eurobricks - it's just a nice community, with many many nice people :-)

Thanks again!

Yeah absolutely. That's what I meant. I'm using Flickr myself, so I know the drill....and the pitfalls :tongue: :laugh:

Earlier today I used the word junior-ised (without hyphen) in a reply to a post in the town forum and it autocorrected to tiresome argument, I know EB has some autocorrect features for expletives and such, but was wondering if this was intentional or an issue with my computer software, since it does not recognise junior-ised as a word.

As a test

Yep, it is intentional.

We were super completely absolutely fed up of that word back around 2010. Essentially, if people didn't like anything about a set or theme: Be it colour, design, play features or even the whole theme concept? It was "Juniorised" no other argument, no other discussion. People would harp on about it and post it so often and then act like it was the definitive reason to dislike something and anyone else was wrong. 

So we added it to the filter to try and stop this. To force stop it. EB is a private forum and the Admin at the time could do whatever. Now that the phrase has fallen out of fashion (or been forced out here) it doesn't come up often. 

Honestly, it is a weird thing to assert. A kids toy is for children? Egads.

Thanks for pointing that out. I forgot about that.
