Deviantart no longer fiddles with my website linksI am too tired to explain all the nonsense and hassles but it works now, for now. I would like to acknowledge :iconthespook: for determining and providing some crucial information which helped me determine how to move this matter along. I got the impression this problem was going to get worse and start affecting me on more websites in more browsers but now I have nothing to blame but my own incompetence for my obscurity!
So now you can click on httpS://www.bimshwel.com , http://bimshwel.com/ope/wud/?page_id=690 , http://bimshwel.com/renk/treasure/treasure.htm and whatever else and actually see what I was assuming you would have seen the whole time! You probably wouldn't want to, but you could!
This of course follows up on my RAGE from earlier: Deviantart fiddles with my website links
Now I am going to have a nap!
addendoy: I do not encounter this in google chrome or internet explorer, but I do not especially like google chrome and internet explorer yet less! I suppose it could potentially be firefox's problem but the fact remains that I don't have this problem on other stupid art sites whatever the browser is, so the problem seems to be most likely a case of firefox being more delicately coded and consequently more sensitive to deviantart's shoddy forwarding system.
www.bimshwel.com is my website. It works. It is fine. It always has been. But deviantart consistently alters the urls without permission, and has been doing so for at least a year. The links should be "http" NOT "https." No other site does this to me. It is SABOTAGE. It makes me look at best like I am too dumb to put in my link properly or stopped having one and forgot to remove the links, and at WORST like I am running a criminal operation. I don't have hundreds of dollars lying around to spend on "security certificates" and it isn't necessary. My site doesn't run any scripts. It is merely a system through which I express myself. I think it is valuable when people do so, and own their points of exhibition. They should not have to submit to the whims of twitler blogsport livepress wordturtle whatever which might delete everything they have at any moment for no reason or cover their content with sponsored obnoxiosity.
If a person wants to look at my website they will have to manually type it the url or alter it after clicking on a link, which is extremely improbable. The contents of my website are primarily of personal importance and I am not greatly harmed by this sabotage, at least by this point when I have accepted that obscurity is my fate, beyond the frustration of having it be affirmed in yet one more way that this social media "system" is set up to exclude certain types of voices while patting itself on the back for being a platform that provides equal opportunities. It is one lie among many.
People who don't use deviantart like to gloat that it is "dead" or whatever. I appreciate that there is ORDER to it and it provides a clear index of everything a person has uploaded. You don't necessarily have to be present the instant a picture goes up to have a chance of even knowing it exists if it isn't from an overhyped celebrity figure. But there is no justification for screwing around with my links!
Thank you and goop muck.
