    Default Hotlinking images

    Is there a trick to it?

    I think they disabled it. They had a problem with Watermark uploading NSFW images of his Waifu girlfriend pillow cases.

    We actually took up a collection to buy him a hooker to get him to stop but Watermark declined our offer on the basis he might have to talk to her.

    You literally make me laugh out loud.
    Insulting family members of other JPP posters is for tiny minds, don't be a tiny mind.

    One of those body pillow things? I use a body pillow myself, by scrunching it up against the wall in winter. Keeps it from getting drafty. I'd have something geeky on it though, to fit with my collectables. Those pervy pillow gals are just creepy, and sad though.

    How then do you embed a full sized image or gif instead of a thumbnail?

    It's odd that they disabled hotlinking, when the rules say it's preferred over uploading.

    I've failed to get a large gif going myself.

    If I could make a recommendation, try imgur.com. quick upload and very easy to post on forums like this
    Biography:

    Grind is one of the internets most beloved and influential political thinkers and deep-level theorists in the modern era. He rose to prominence in early 2015 when he alleged, contrary to the dominant theory of christiefanism of the time, that Bill Clintons wife was indeed running for president and wasn't considering settling down to be a grandmother. In 2016, Grind was one of the key figures in proposing the new revolutionary theory of "30% is not a rare occurrence" which shook up the JPP political landscape like no other theory ever had before. His academic prowess, deep-level analysis and remarkable insight into human nature and psychology will undoubtedly result in further complexities being untangled and laid bare. He currently resides in boston, his hobbies include #rekking libs, vaping, and patriotism. You can find him in a thread near you.

    Boomers may be incapable of such a mundane task.
