Posting links in threads
« on: June 13, 2009, 09:25:29 AM »

Just a reminder about posting links in threads. 

Some http links are really loooooooooooooooong and will make the window so large that excessive scrolling across the page is required. 

Many links to Ebay auctions suffer from excessively long links. 

Before posting a link, check it's length and if it looks like it will be a long one -

GO TO

http://tinyurl.com/create.php

and paste the link to make a TinyURL

Copy and paste the new URL into your post reply to make viewing easier
