Lew, what is the deal on embedding media?
I think a lot of people on here have expressed interest in embedding media on here.

For people reading this who don’t know what that means, I could “embed” a tweet, and it would show up on the page. Most websites and forums have them. Here is an example of a tweet embedded on Bleacher Report.

Lew, have y’all discussed this at all? Do you have to get permission from Twitter/Instagram etc.? If you guys haven’t discussed it at all, please bring it up to Chicken.

Thanks.

I think your high level of discontent for everything SECdroppings related shows you should probably just go ahead and start your own website.

You're not going to be around long enough to enjoy it anyway so why bother?

frick man I'm just trying to drink and shitpost. I don't have a reason for you to be banned. It's funny to me, but no real legitimate reason. I'm going to use my alter now. Lew out!

Don't believe everything you see on the internet.

it would require more hamsters running the wheels

and Chicken feeds enough hamsters

old threads have images auto converted to links, why?

requires less hamsters

this is the cleanest, fastest and best run site online

by a mile

don't mess with a good thing...

and PS, no Corona board please...

It’s not 2007 anymore. Gifv/mp4/Webm files use less bandwidth than gifs, but here we are.

It shouldn't take any because it's just text printed to your browser. Your browser is what then does all the extra stuff of contacting twitter to get the tweet and information.

At worse it would just be a quick parse on print out, no different than any other bbcode.

More likely it's not that it requires more hamsters, but rather that multiple tweets on a page can increase the load time for pages on the users end.

Easy way around this is to just allow the user to decide if they want to see the embedded tweets as a setting, or just a link. That would require some coding.

I don't see how, the server only prints out the text. It's the users browser that loads the images. I really do not know why it would do that, unless it's detected a broken image.

There are some options that could be added that would improve the experience and probably get more people to visit without screwing up everything else. The lack of some features prevented me from posting more often for years, as I would instead visit another place that did have the features.
