its best not to leach images though as people tend to not apretiate that.
Thanks, but that's what I was trying. I kept getting:

"1. Please do not use remote images, upload them instead."

Even when I try to post the http:// link to imgur in the [url] wrapper, it gives me the same message.

Even trying to post this reply was giving me a headache because you had the image wrapper in your original post. I cannot put anything remotely like [ and then img and then ].

I can only conclude that it has something to do with me being a new user?

Yes, it's because you are a new user. It should still allow you to do it, but the post will need to be reviewed and approved by a moderator before it will show up to the public.

Nice article, down to the point and your writing style makes it easy to read. Also, awesome job summarizing the source material and adding your own spin to it instead of copy/pasting another writer's article.

Edit: Also like the fact that you linked one of OC3D's reviews in your post. Great way to tie different parts of the site together.

I much prefer Godmanchester. It brings back fond memories of Manchester... Oh how I miss it! If you're in Cambridge, does that mean you're one of the dreaded cyclists who try to take my life whenever I walk through Cambridge?

*Edit* The only reason for bringing back memories is the name!

Thanks I'd much rather present something in my own words and have it appear a little more thought out. I understand it can't be done for everything but when there's quite a meaty article to be had, I think copy/paste is *too* lazy. I understand that for very brief new stories, it can be difficult to word it vastly different to the source. I just like to personalise things a little more.

I do apologise. It just didn't occur to me that an edit would be the most logical option!
