#3907781 How to Add a Clickable Link to a Status Update

Posted by Random Terrain on Sat Dec 9, 2017 4:52 AM

Clickable links only work in the original status update. Links aren't clickable in replies to a status update. For an Internet address to become clickable, there can't be any text directly before or after the address. If you want to put text before the address, you must have a blank space between them. Same for any text you want to add after the address. There must be a blank space separating them. Here's an example from one of my status updates:
 

The good news: people are still donating! https://www.gofundme.com/duanes-squishy-adjustable-bed The bad news: the naked tickle fight party that was planned for all donors has been cancelled since we didn't reach $3,500 before December 6th.

 
Notice the space between the exclamation point and the address. Also notice the space between the address and the sentence that follows it.

#3905207 Score, variables and mathematics question

Posted by Random Terrain on Tue Dec 5, 2017 3:40 PM

If nobody pops up with a better idea, you might have to do a loop.

 

Maybe something like this:

 

   score = 1000
   for temp5 = 0 to m
   score = score + 50
   next

9 Ways To Use Urgency Psychology To Improve Conversions

 

marketingland.com/12-ways-use-urgency-psychology-improve-conversions-112603

1. Scarcity

Scarcity is one of the most powerful sources of urgent behavior. The scarcity bias states that when a person thinks that something is running out, they want it more.

In more precise terms, when an item is perceived as being scarce, its subjective value increases. Whether it’s a baseball card, an iPhone 6, an antique Model T, or some other thing, people want that item so much more, because there aren’t many left.

Scarcity can be created by the producer. If you create a product or service, you can intentionally limit the amount that you produce or deliver in order to raise demand. It’s as simple as that. If you say that you only have “four more left,” the desire for that resource will increase due to the fact that it is running out.

Man, I should've donated an extra dollar. Then it'd be at $666 right now.
 
Thanks for all you do for the 2600 community RT.


You ruined everything! :D
 

 

Donated.  I don't think there is anyone who has used bB who hasn't benefitted from his excellent maintenance of the bB documentation, in addition to his helpfulness in the forum.


Thanks! Here's the latest:
