Hmm, I see all of my own posts. The culprit is probably the file type I guess. I don't use social media, so all these memes are from 9GAG, which uses .webp format. Some people can see them though. I wonder what the issue is. Do you use a Mac?

It would help a lot if I could upload from my computer instead of needing a url. There are ways around that, but it takes a number of steps.

Thanks, yea, only 2 people have said so far they can't see them, that is why I thought maybe it is applemac users or something.

Ah, that would be it then, I guess the other person that has problems also used apple. Ah well, the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few I guess. Sorry

Here is the solution. You can use iPad to view them, but not with a Safari browser.

I can’t see them on my iphone both in the app and thru Safari nor on my Windows-7 laptop running Chrome.
I’ll try the Win-10 running Edge later.

Re: The New Joke Thread

Apparently Firefox is the solution on apple devices, according to the cnet link.I use Chrome, but Firefox is more respectful of your privacy, which is a plus. I don't really care about google or apple snooping on me though.

My first solution for SoCal's posts was to copy link location, paste it into the address bar in another tab, then edit iwasnotssl-www.glamisdunes.com part of the address to www.glamisdunes.com.


I just figured an easier solution for my Linux box. edit /etc/hosts and add the line 23.19.64.7 iwasnotssl-www.glamisdunes.com


I presume other OS's have something equivalent to the hosts file?
