Where is the rest of my question? January 10, 2004 4:46 PM   Subscribe

I wanted to post a question to AskMe, which I see ok in preview but when I hit post, only 1 sentence of it comes up and I get a 404 page saying the rest of it can't be found, etc. I'm using Mozilla 1.4 on Windows XP but I tried it in IE6 and the same thing happened. What am I doing wrong?

Ok, I figured it out myself. By accident or design, I wasn't allowed to include any links in the question. Perhaps that's against the spirit of AskMe. So I managed to post my question without links.

what's a nudie suit anyway? it makes you appear to be naked but you're not?

Darn it - if AskMe would have allowed me to put in hyperlinks, I would have been able to show you there! However, here is a link to the man himself,, plus a site that shows lots of his friends/customers wearing them. Having a Nudie suit, originally made for country western stars, was the epitome of Rhinestone Cowboyhood for a while, then when bands like the Byrds, Flying Burrito Brothers, etc. started blending in country and bluegrass to their rock sound, Nudie suits became the height of hippie glamor for a while, too.

you can put in links just fine, just write the html.

I did the html by hand, just as I did in my post here. I swear to god it didn't work right earlier, but I just tested it now in AskMe preview and it works right. I knew other folks were able to post AskMe questions with hyperlinks in them so I figured I must have been doing something wrong. So thanks, mathowie, it must have not been a bug, but a feature, right? ;)
