Yes mate, that's how YouTube shortens its URLs.
Same URL as a link : https://youtu.be/_qeXJWmRBks

Would you have an example of the YouTube tags actually working?

How do I change the screen back to wide ?
The lark, signing its chirping hymn,
Soars high above the clouds;
Meanwhile, the nightingale intones
With sweet, mellifluous sounds.

Go to the second blue bar from the top, click on your user name, choose User Control Panel, choose Board Preferences and choose Matrix-wide.
Even with that, I used the CTRL-mouse wheel to zoom the forum width to full screen (minus the Windows bar I keep on the right side).

Same is true for the Advanced Tactics Gold forum.

The place it redirects to the Community website no longer exists, because the developer changed website.

The place to buy the game, gets a 404 error from Matrix store.

So how can I include a picture in a post that someone will have to click on it to see it? That way if someone might be offended by seeing the picture they don't have to click on it?

RJ, most players who don't want to embed the post seem to use a picture hosting site and post the link to the picture.

RJ, I use Imgur its a free site, I currently have over 2k screenshots it in. If you use it, I can give you some pointers on how to add images to posts.

if you like.

This is just one way...

Thank you. I saw a good one there that some people might not like to see since it involves children feeding while the mother is also doing something else . . .

Actually, one child is eating while it appears a couple of others are passed out on the bar and one appears to have just passed out. :o

I submitted a query/request about this but maybe people in charge of the forum haven't seen it so I'll post it here:

I have an indicator for 1 private message (a "1" inside a red circle next to "Private messages"). There was no new private message, and nothing I have tried gets rid of it. All messages are already read, and all were already read when the indicator mysteriously flipped to 1.

Just a guess, but perhaps someone deleted their message after sending it and before you had a chance to read it?
Along with the PM I had, there was a notification with the 1 in a red circle. I had to open the notification and mark it as read, then I opened the PM and read it - both indicators went away.

The newest PM I have long pre-dates the flipping on of "Private messages 1".

Sometimes I can include a picture, sometimes I can't include a picture.
