Can anyone clear something up for me?
I was wanting to post a link relating to a rejected photo. I thought I had previously sussed out how to do this, and have written down the appropriate line of text to refer back to - the http etc etc. I have tried to do this but when you click on the link prior to finally posting the thread it comes up with that 'Sorry Pal, you seem to be lost' statement. So, obviously, I haven't posted.
Given that I have done this in the past can anyone help clarify what is going on. The photo in question remains in my 'Rejected photos' section in My Photos (still too big a list!!), although it was rejected some weeks ago. I was wondering if the link won't work after some pre-determined time period.

The wording you have used above is exactly that which I have been using to try to post the link - ending the phrase '..../addphotos/rejections/big/.............jpg'. But Matt's idea appears right - although the link itself works in the sense that it becomes a line you can click on in the post, it just takes you to that standard 'Sorry you're lost' page.
I don't really understand why the link won't work if the photo remains there in the 'My Photos' section. I understand that those images disappear after a couple of months - presumably to save server space - but I can't see why it should not be possible to make an active link whilst they remain.
But it must be said that it is in situations such as this that my level of technological insight becomes worthless.
