As seen here the forum seems to have a mind of it's own when looking for an image for a forum topic instead of just displaying nothing, including, but not limited to, following links and redirects. I'm unsure if this is normal behavior, however my minor concerns are as follows:

  • By minor manipulation a user on the forum can make it appear the OP user posted content they did not.
  • By following links and redirects, the forum software useragent could be served specific, potentially explicit or rule violating media, while normal users would be served normal content

 

Regards

Happened on this thread too:

(the image in the banner has been posted by me, not the OP, on page 2).

 

The one thing I see similarly between your example and mine, is that the image in the banner is the first posted image of the thread. That might be the reason it shows that picture?


Don't forgot the quote / @ me so I get a notification for your response. Quoting is the arrow button in the bottom left of my post.

The first image chronologically to be attached to the topic (as opposed to embedded from a third party source) is used as the poster image for the topic. It has been pointed out to IPS several times that they should at a minimum restrict that to images in the OP, but they've not shown much interest in changing it unfortunately.

Over here, in my topic, I didn’t post the Buzz picture, but it still shows as the poster image.  I checked to see if the Buzz pic was the first chronologically posted picture,but instead a picture from Appl’s website was.

this screen recording explains.

 


BlankFace says so.

The apple screenshot is not uploaded to the forum - it's hosted on psnb.feen.us, and proxied through the forum. The meme which has been chosen as the topic image is the first image in that topic that was uploaded to the forum.

Also bear in mind that chronological upload time is not the same as post order - it's the first image to be uploaded, regardless of whether an image was edited into an earlier post or if the poster waited an hour before submitting.

This bothers me, you know you can click on the red icon in the top right to end the recording, right?
