Let's say I've got a picture that's in the public domain, and is in no way related myself, my family, or anyone I know (or anyone still alive, for that matter), and would be very relevant to an FPP i'm crafting. Problem is, I can't find it anywhere else on the internet. So, if I put the image up on a website that has no other content and was created for the purpose of showing people on metafilter this thing that is not mine, does it still count as a self-link?
"If you absolutely must post another link within 24 hrs, email me the post for approval." [more inside]
I recently posted an anonymous question to Metafilter (within the past week). I browsed to the 'New Question' page without thinking about the question limits because I had a new query, but to my surprise the page didn't restrict me from posting. A bug? A way to get around the question limit? Am I shortly going to be shot for pointing this out?
Having just made an FPP, I can still get to the posting page by pasting the "post_good.mefi" link. I can also put in any user id and it still gets me into preview. I didn't dare to hit post though to see if that works, but I thought I'd point it out.
