I'm really getting sick of these mystery post limits. Is it a character count? Do images count towards some limit? Colors? Quotes? A combination? Nobody knows!

There's something a bit screwy going on with the embedding functions. In trying to embed a gif in my post via the url functionality, I found that while the image would appear in my in-process post, if I tried to actually post it or hit the preview button I'd get the vague explanation from the forums that "something went wrong".

I experimented a bit while making this post, and seem to have figured out how to replicate it. For whatever reason, a draft with an embedded gif becomes unpostable when the post also contains an embedded quote and an embedded smiley (not the text, the picture that replaces it). Curiously, this issue can be bypassed by changing the smiley back to text format.

Bit late reply, but I find that if you want to get fancy with formatting and embedding, it's usually better to write out the bb tags for it in full. Especially if you're combining stuff, like bolding a link that's inside a spoiler, or somesuch. Oh, and embedding smileys pretty much doesn't work any other way than writing bb code. As for posting gifs, make sure the url you're using is the actual image location. You want an url that ends in a file name, for example imagesite.com/myimage/image.png or something.
