Can’t See Images While Abroad

Post by abuemily » Fri Aug 16, 2019 10:00 am

Here’s a poser for some of you more technically minded: I’ve been out of the U.S. since June, traveling back and forth from Turkey to the Magic Kingdom. Ever since I got out here I haven’t been able to see some (maybe a bit more than half) of images posted on the forum; WRUW, new watches, etc.. It doesn’t matter if I use a browser or Tapatalk. Either the post will be blank (except for text), or I will only see the word “image,” or that funky split gray icon that represents an image. This happen to anyone else while traveling, or anyone have a similar experience?

Safe travels.

It shouldn’t matter if you became a broad, everything should work the same. I hope everything heals well!

Ed, I knew I could count on you for a seasoned, rational reason for all this. I mean, how can I buy some of your shit if I can’t see the photos? Oh wait, they aren’t up long enough anyway. :o

All true my friend. :grin:

Seriously though, it’s likely that some of the images are hosted rather than uploaded to Tapatalk, so you’re seeing one type or the other. Likely the hosted images aren’t showing. I get this too at times, but more often when at work where I suspect their filters/firewall block certain stuff.

That would make sense. Annoying as f**k however.

I clicked on this thread just to say this. Not disappointed to see it already said. :lol:

I know that in the corner of the Empty Quarter I was in, it was most likely heavy handed, inept Internet filtering and blockage.
