New feature- "follow original link"- what does it do?
« on: May 08, 2018, 11:08:12 AM »
Sorry, my bad. Original post removed because it is NOT a Railwire feature....
Saw the "follow the original link" on all the threads and thought it was a Railwire thing. Apparently this was instead a side effect of a browser add on that I installed yesterday to stop that really annoying GIF running over and over on the weekend update page.  I will need to find another solution.  Sorry.

Admins- feel free to remove this posting and thread title- I know how to edit, but not how to remove it all together.

A clip @Mark W posted in Weekend Update demonstrating the (amazing) virtues of his operating MOW truck build.

It's neither spam nor an ad. Scroll it off screen, problem solved.

Yeah, it is really my browser/OS/configuration issue and nothing to do with Railwire.  and C855B is right, Mark W's MOW truck is truly amazing.  Must be a recent update changed something, because I used to be able to stop repeating gifs- usually just had to right click a second time on the graphic- and that no longer works for some reason.  Like I say, problem at my end.

Thanks for clarifying.  Yes, it is amazing.
