Does TappedOut Censor Links?

TappedOut forum

Posted on March 1, 2017, 10:56 a.m. by HehaGardenHoe

I was making a Primer for an EDH deck for my brother who likes EDHrec, and at the end of the description I tried to put a link to the Ephara, God of the Polis EDHrec page. I tried retyping the link multiple times, but it would never show up in the description area when I saved the decklist.

I do understand how the links work, since I also successfully linked to my EDH deck on Tappedout ( Mizzix Spellslinger ) to point out the difference in price, which did successfully show up in the description.

So does TappedOut censor/remove links to competitors, or prospective competitors?

What was the code you used for the link?

<a href="https://edhrec.com/commanders/ephara-god-of-the-polis"> Words you want </a>

Knowing html is fun.

Or do this:

[Um, the link works fine :-)](https://edhrec.com/commanders/ephara-god-of-the-polis)
Um, the link works fine :-)

Alternately, just use the URL/Link button (at the top of every Comment window).

That's my point, I used

[Um, the link works fine :-)](https://edhrec.com/commanders/ephara-god-of-the-polis)
but I get nothing to show up

the way I had done it was with the link button, but I couldn't get it to work. I see that clayperce got it to work here, so It must of been a bug or human error. as I stated in the OP, I had a working link elsewhere using the same method

  1. Go to Page (either my Mizzix EDH on Tappedout or Ephara on EDHrec)
  2. Highlight the whole URL of page and copy it
  3. On the Ephara EDH primer decklist page, click edit button
  4. In description section hit the link button
  5. Paste link in popup window (either Mizzix EDH TappedOut or Ephara EDHrec) making sure that there isn't an extra instance http:// from a bad paste job
  6. put descriptive name or phrase in the brackets.
  7. save Ephara EDH primer decklist page edits

after this process I had a working link to my Mizzix deck and nothing where the Ephara EDHrec link should have been. now since clayperce proved it works here, it must have been a bug or human error (unless there's some weird censor/removal in descriptions of decks only, which I doubt)
