How do I advertise an Area 51 proposal?

Doesn't load for me in firefox until I change the URL to:

How do I advertise an Area 51 proposal?


It's returning a 1px by 1px gif for some reason, no page data!

Problem is on your side - FF 3.6.6 – Ladybug Killer Aug 11 '10 at 13:01
Works for me. Firefox 3.6.8. – kennytm Aug 11 '10 at 13:03
Firefox 3.6.8 - still not working, cleared cache etc etc. – Tom Aug 11 '10 at 13:09
I don't even think that last part is processed at all; you could link to… and it will work equally well (although it does change the link title text, which is fun) – Michael Mrozek Aug 11 '10 at 13:09
Yup, your unicorn link works fine but the original isn't working which is what the link to on the newest question page links to! – Tom Aug 11 '10 at 13:12

See if you can go here:

Question doesn't load

If you can't, and it's the same problem, you may have Adblock on or a really aggressive filter that strips any content path related to advertising to a whitewashed 1 pixel image of nothingness.

Since the URL contains the word "advertise" you're looking at that as a likely suspect for the nail.

I'm not running any adblock software (unless firefox has some built in) and that link works fine for me. – Tom Aug 11 '10 at 13:19
