120 Consecutive Characters Error
I'm trying to embed an image from my OneDrive.  The code that is auto-generated to embed the image is a very long string, and when I try to post so that players can see my image, I receive this message:

"Error! You don't need over one hundred and twenty consecutive characters, do you?"

Actually, I do.

120 Consecutive Characters Error
The workaround I found was to repost to imgur (or deviantart if I modify it significantly) and use that link, it's nigh on guaranteed to be under 120 characters.

As an afterthought, you may be able to feed the one drive link through a shortener site and use the link that spits out.

120 Consecutive Characters Error
For the last decade+ that I've been on RPoL, I've used Photobucket, but their site has always had occasional issues, and their redesign has increased the number of steps it takes to grab an embed link.  So I tried my cloud.  I could definitely run it through a URL shortener, but again, that adds a step.  It's not really a big deal, in the grand scheme of things.

Yeah, that's why for me it's imgur. I've also noticed discord image links are fairly short. I have a server with a private room only I have access to and have also gone that route.

Re: 120 Consecutive Characters Error
I gave up on photo sites, and just use an Amazon S3 bucket for storage. (With the bucket set to private and the pictures within it to public.)
