How to Add a Clickable Link to a Status Update

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.

What went wrong at Atari?

I couldn't find these InfoWorld articles posted at AtariAge, so here they are in case you haven't seen them. They're at archive.org, but I'll include copies in case the magazines eventually get removed.

Did you get NTSC Ikari Warriors when it was new?

Tue Oct 31, 2017 7:29 PM

According to Computer Entertainer The Newsletter (The Video Game Update), Ikari Warriors was supposed to be released in the fourth quarter of 1989, but other games were delayed, so there is a good chance that Ikari Warriors was also delayed.

 

Did you buy NTSC Ikari Warriors or receive it as a gift when it was new? If so, do you remember the month and year?

 

The only box at videogamevariations.com has a 1990 date on it.


Crossbow Release Date?

Tue Oct 31, 2017 5:04 PM

According to Computer Entertainer The Newsletter (The Video Game Update), Crossbow was supposed to be released in 1987, then it eventually made its way to a possible May 1988 release in the May and June 1988 issues. In the next issue, July 1988, Crossbow is no longer in the list. Problem is that I didn't get a dandy little x next to the game as officially being shipped.

 

Since the game was supposed to be released in May of 1988 and it was removed from the list after that, I'm going to stick it in May of 1988 as a "Desperate Super Extreme Best Guess" if nobody has a problem with that.
