[18:02:24] <stderr> For the http://soylentnews.org submission the links need to be fixed... "Copy/paste of unicode"-failure.
[18:03:06] <stderr> <stderr> dx3bydt3: What URL?
[18:03:06] <stderr> <dx3bydt3> I had a link to an article, and one to a wikipedia page, a prefix/suffix ended up on both.
[18:03:06] <stderr> <dx3bydt3> I'll paste the exact example:
[18:03:06] <stderr> <dx3bydt3> this is what I had in my submission: <a href=”http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ostracod”> Ostracod</a>
[18:03:06] <stderr> <dx3bydt3> this is the link once submitted: http://soylentnews.org
[18:03:09] <stderr> <stderr> Submitted as plain old text or HTML formatted?
[18:03:11] <stderr> <dx3bydt3> HTML
[18:03:13] <stderr> <stderr> ” ain't "
[18:03:15] <stderr> <stderr> So the parser sees <a href=”http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ostracod”> Ostracod</a> as <a href= (some unicode character) http://en.wikipedia.org (some unicode character) > Ostracod</a> Since that ain't an absolute URL it is prefixed with http://soylentnews.org and the complete URL is then enclosed in " so everything becomes <a href="http://soylentnews.org/ (some unicode character) http://en.wikip
[18:03:20] <stderr> edia.org/wi
[18:03:22] <stderr> <stderr> ki/Ostracod (some unicode character) "> Ostracod</a>
[18:03:24] <stderr> <dx3bydt3> Ha, I didn't see that, thanks, copy paste stupidity.
[18:03:26] <stderr> <stderr> So the trick to putting links in submissions is to NOT use unicode characters for the "... :-)
[18:03:30] <stderr> <dx3bydt3> No trick there indeed.

[21:16:14] <janrinok> hello weeds
[21:16:27] <janrinok> I responded on the other channel but I will repeat it here
[21:17:08] <janrinok> There is already a story queued on the same topic as your submission, due out at 21:15 UTC. You were about 30 minutes late
