I don’t know if this is an intended feature, something that should be addressed on discourse, or something on reddit’s end of things, but I find it weird that links to a discourse entry end up with the photo of the poster as the main image. I think this is incorrect behavior given discourse’ content first nature.
I’d love some help on figuring out ways around this. Our discourse will likely be image heavy: http://forum.formicarium.org/t/arthropod-suggestions/
So it seems silly to have user photos as the thumbnail on reddit:
[official] Arthropod Suggestions Wanted, Help /u/bersaelor brainstorm some interesting things to put into the game - Formicarium Forums : formicarium - links to the top level post, should have the ant image?
Confirmed: Aphids are planned for the game. : formicarium - links to the comment, should have the aphid as an aimage?
Is this something we can tweak? I’d be willing to look at code if you can point me in the right direction, and @Bersaelor has ruby experience.
Any help appreciated. I’m going to be digging into reddit’s codebase soon to see if there is anything I can tweak.
