Long links in the status bar.

  1. Nothing major but I've noticed a few people posting links in the status bar which stretches it making the homepage look untidy so for future reference here are a few URL shortners which will prevent that.

    www.bit.ly

    www.goo.gl

    www.tinyurl.com

    as for YouTube video you can get a shortened version of the link by clicking the share button and copying the highlighted text.
     
  2. Nice post. Just to include, if one see's a buggy status, report it to the Staff so they can edit it.
     
  3. "few people" = Me being referred as fat as Xanth.
     
  4. LMAO at that post, like and rep.

    And no, everyone does this daily (though I swear Anon fixed it? I'll test now).
     
  5. Use the bit.ly extension if you're too lazy to go to bit.ly and shorten it. The extension will automatically copy the URL at you're on and shorten it.
     
  6. Never even knew that existed. Chrome?
