Unicode characters for most languages and useful symbols (like math, currency, and punctuation) are allowed. Dingbats, smiley faces, non-printing characters, right-to-left switchers, and other gibberish are filtered. If you find a bug or wish to suggest an additional language block to allow, please submit a bug report so that we can continue to improve our Unicode handling.
All items (stories, comments, polls, etc...) on this site are assigned a short code similar to those seen on Twitter (t.co), Google (goo.gl), bit.ly, and others - except that it's built into the site and automatic.
For example, the full URL of a poll could be rather long:
But it can be shortened to:
These links are useful for character limited services, such as Twitter posts, as well as any other scenario where a shorter link would be appreciated. Also, like other link shortener services, you can tack a "+" on to the end of the short link to get statistics on who has clicked it.
You can refer to a short code or hash tag within a comment or story by simply begining a word with the # character. Short codes will always be uppercase while hash tags will always be lowercase and begin with a letter.
For example: #3XC is a short tag and #dolphin is a hash tag.
Allowed HTML Tags
Comments and story submissions can use HTML tags to embellish the posting.Inline tags:
- <a> <b> <i> <u> <s> <sub> <sup> <q>
- <ul> <ol> <li>
A WYSIWYG editor option is also available, for those that prefer to avoid raw markup.
Registered users receive their own personal subdomain in the form: http://username.pipedot.org/
Your user page displays your journals, images, shared links, recent comments, and more.
Users may upload a small picture, or avatar, to their profile. Avatars use a square aspect ratio and are saved into three sizes:
|PNG||64 x 64|
|JPEG||128 x 128|
|256 x 256|
The small (64 x 64) size supports alpha transparency and will be used as the favicon of your user page.
Photos uploaded to the site are saved into three sizes determined by the orientation and aspect ratio of the original file:
|Square||1 x 1||320 x 320|
|640 x 640|
|1080 x 1080|
|Landscape||4 x 3||320 x 240|
|640 x 480|
|1440 x 1080|
|16 x 9||320 x 180|
|640 x 360|
|1920 x 1080|
|Portrait||3 x 4||320 x 427|
|640 x 853|
|1080 x 1440|
|9 x 16||320 x 569|
|640 x 1138|
|1080 x 1920|
Additionally, all photos have a square 256 x 256 thumbnail image.
