You've encountered a bug with the [img] code. It might be because your image's URL has commas in it, and commas are used by the [img] code to separate multiple images from one another when being displayed by a single [img] code.
I'm in the middle of something else right now, but I'll get to this as soon as I can. In the meantime, use "peek" to see how to display that image:

Minor Release
I just released some minor fixes, details aren't worth describing, but it does include a few more sayings for the "Do Nothing" button.

Re: Minor Release
Yes, I'm aware. Investigating this is on my todo list, but I'll move it to the top.

Re: Minor Release
I modified some settings that I think have improved performance. Please let me know if this is good enough, or if you even notice a difference. I think there are further improvements that could be made, but it would require further investigation. For now I've moved this further down my todo list, but I'll return it to the top if necessary.

I was changing a MySQL table engine from MyISAM to InnoDB, and it caused the MySQL daemon to hang. This shouldn't happen.
The website slowness and outages seem to be caused by MySQL. MySQL is a shared resource, and a new website on the server seems to be causing some MySQL instability. Things MySQL can do on my development machine are giving it trouble on the server. I'm still trying to understand this better.

Board Back Online
Updating the messages table overloaded the server and caused the website to be inaccessible while the table was being updated. I hope it was worth it and that the performance is improved at least a little.

Recent Outage
As the website database grows occasional adjustments become necessary. Tonight an adjustment overwhelmed the server, preventing it from serving website pages and causing a two hour and twenty minute outage. The adjustment completed successfully and (obviously) the site is back online.

Minor Improvement to Quoting
A simple quote from a message is often done like this:
[qs]
...quoted text...
[/qs]
And is rendered like this:
...quoted text...
You can also include a name:
[qs=Theodoric]
Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts
[/qs]
Which is rendered like this:
Theodoric writes:
Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts
But what many probably don't know is that you can use the message number in place of the name like this:
[qs=36]
Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts
[/qs]
Which is rendered like this and includes a link to the message:
Theodoric writes in Message 36:
Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts
A newly added feature is the ability to link to messages in other threads by using the message ID, which is the integer in a faint gray font near the top of every message. The message ID is preceded by the text "mid:":
[qs=mid:918564]
Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts
[/qs]
Which is rendered like this and includes a link to the message:
Tanypteryx writes in Message 879 of thread 2024 US Presidential Election:
So, I wonder if there is any brain material left, or are the worms in full control now?
