The marvel that is David Tennant  

I don't have a theme this week, thanks to an intensely hectic schedule and a bad back, but these are a few of my favourite recent finds:

What are your recent favourites?

Given that most of you can't see the photos, despite the post being public (as is the album that hosts the photos), I've raised this issue with LJ support. Hopefully they'll get back to me quickly. Is there even a link where the photos should be, to take you to the originals?

Update 2:
No reply from LJ, but following beachy_geek's comment I checked my public Scrapbook folder on and discovered that the photos in there had been changed to 'friends'. I've now re-set the photos in this post, and hope you can see them.

As a further test, and as some small compensation for the inconvenience, I'm adding Dave Tiler to the mix because he's so very beautiful

Once again, I can't see these pictures. This has been happening a lot, no matter what browser or computer I use. Is it set to public?

Shame I can't see him...

I can't see them either. I'll see if this picture shows up. It's my birthday and everyone should have a little David for their birthday.

Hmmm, I see this one but nothing in the original post.

The post is set to "public" so I don't understand why the pictures aren't visible.
I'll query this with LJ.
Is there an error message or anything, in place of the pictures?

On my laptop there is nothing. On my ipad i get the broken image link icon that shows you tried to put in 8 images.

Just a blank space for me. Oh well, guess I'll just have to use my imagination...

*head explodes* (oopsy)

No error message, just a broken link that shows a picture was placed there. This has been happening a lot, so I wonder if it's an LJ issue.

A shame, cause we could all use more DT!

Re: What is Showing Up When Clicking on Picture
I ran into the same thing when I made a post elsewhere last week. Now you have to not only make sure the album is set to public, but each individual picture as well! To add to the idiocy, when you make the post as you add the pictures they only give you the "friends" or "private" choice, so unless you load the photos in you scrapbook first, click on them individually to change each one to public and THEN enter them in a post, no one can see them.

Honestly, it's like LJ wants to drive even more people away.

Re: What is Showing Up When Clicking on Picture
That sounds quite awful.
I usually upload them into Photobucket. Never had any problems there. Just an idea?
They provide links to post in either forums (with the IMG tag) or here on LJ (with the HTML tag)

Re: What is Showing Up When Clicking on Picture
I always used to use Photobucket, but started using my LJ scrapbook when someone started pinching my personal photos. I may have to re-think.

Re: What is Showing Up When Clicking on Picture
That's so beyond idiotic that I have no words. I had no idea that these settings had been changed. I have nearly 200 photos in a public folder, but all those photos are now set to 'friends' and it will be a time-consuming task to go through each one to set them all back to 'public' :( I'm going to complain to LJ.

In the meantime, I've changed the settings on this post's photos so hopefully they can now be seen by everyone.
*fingers crossed*

Adding in my 2c, no pics, no links either...

I gotta say, annoying as the picture security problem was, Scrapbook beats Photobucket for ease of saving pictures to my own computer. Scrapbook I can just right-click and save; with Photobucket I have to click through to the page in the "bucket", then click through to the original. (Big pain in the butt especially on fandom icon posts where I just want to save a bunch of them. Clicking through two pages for every-single-one I just aaaarrrgh. Sorry, rant mode off.)

I kinda feel sorry for him in that picture on the airplane, which I guess was after the con and going off to the next place he was going? I know he's always so generous and game for anything with fans but he just looks exhausted.

Photobucket irks me too, and this latest change by LJ seems to have introduced something similar.

David is very generous with his time, especially with his fans and for charity, but I'm sure he wouldn't have done that if he hadn't felt up to it. Jetting regularly across the Atlantic is bound to take its toll; I hope he gives himself a break before going on to the next project!

Also ... I guess this means that my pics are finally visible? \o/

There are still some opportunities to host this month ... details are here
