This is an image at large size:

It doesn't look large, but I can assure you it is, because it's under this URL: http://i.stack.imgur.com/0Vajul.jpg

This is the same image again, but an added 's' before '.jpg' to make it smaller (in appose to an added 'l':

Same Image

Adding 's' to the second occurrence makes both of them small, even though the first one has a 'l'. Why is this so?

    @Charles Oh, yeah, PEBKAC, I definitely know what that is. Well, I hope that this PEBKAC issue gets fixed. – Cilan Feb 14 '14 at 0:12
  • @Charles: This wasn't tagged as support, though, even if it probably should've been. – Ilmari Karonen Feb 14 '14 at 20:07

You're overwriting the URL for the image:

![Image][1]

  [1]: http://i.stack.imgur.com/0Vajul.jpg

![Same Image][1]

  [1]: http://i.stack.imgur.com/0Vajus.jpg

Yes, you're writing a different URL the first time, but the second time you're defining a new URL to the identifier you used previously. Identifiers are all removed before Markdown starts getting processed, so 1 will end up being defined as whatever URL is set to it last, and then when it starts processing the images will be substituted in as that value. What you want to do is this:

![Image][1]

  [1]: http://i.stack.imgur.com/0Vajul.jpg

![Same Image][2]

  [2]: http://i.stack.imgur.com/0Vajus.jpg

Renders as:

Same Image
