How crazy must a person be to get this warning?

"A blog may have at most 2000 labels."

I'm pretty sure that's a bug (the post may not seem directly on point but it's just another aspect of the problems introduced by changes to the labeling system.)

Blogger guy 'gatsby' responds:
Thanks for the feedback everyone; we made some changes to our labeling system and it is helpful to know that some people are being affected negatively.

We're looking into this now; thanks for your patience in the meantime.

I'm having a helluva time uploading images these days, too.

Can a child attach a label to a thing? ... We might reply: "One already has to know (or be able to do) something in order to be capable of attaching a label to a thing. But what does one have to know?" Well, for example, one has to know what the thing in question is; what a label is; what the point of attaching a label to a thing is. Would we say that the child is attaching a label to a thing if he was pasting (the way a child pastes) bits of paper on various objects? Suppose, even, that he can say: "These are my labels" (i.e., that he says "wyzir may leybils"). (Here one begins to sense the force of a question like: What makes "These are labels" say that these are labels?) And that he says: "I am putting labels on my jars." Is he?

^^^ Images. Me too. I don't bother with the new editor anymore. It wants to do its own pre-set sizing and bizarre overly extravagant DIV spacing. Just use your own code. You can be as simple HTML or as complexly CSS as you like.

A template might be helpful. That way you can copy it, write up the post as you wish, then copy the photo address into the appropriate spot then just force feed it to Blogger. Sort of like filling a cafeteria plate.

You can simplify the code for photos by uploading the size you intend to use. That way you don't need the 'display this size' but click for real size lengthy complicating code. Plus you can simplify further to only opening and closing DIV tags instead of between every little thing. (unless you have some intervening text you wish to align differently).

This concludes my Blogger-user recommendations.

I’m getting older, now, and finding myself much happier as a lumper than I was as a splitter.

Perhaps they're researching Ann's question as part of the review.

We can break them Althouse..

Just give me the word ;)

Ann Althouse said...

Thanks, Joan. Actually, it didn't make sense, because I have either way more or quite a few less than 2000 labels, defending on how you define it -- each attachment of label or each different label.

What kind of an envelope is this that has a virtual weight?

Lem said...

Next they will be dictating how many songs we can have per post.

And here I thought we won the cold war.

btw.. my mothers computer in DR died because it was in paradise and nobody update it ;)

Lem said...

you know.. its warm down there.

Lem said...

that reminds me of Palins book title..

you got to go rogue sometimes.

Lem said...

Go Rogue Althouse..

Lem said...

We follow you.. if they have the cojones to let you go.

what is a warning w/o a .. did they tell you there would be Bush like "consecuenses"?

is google the UN?
I'm up for battle

Lem said...

I made the mistake of ordering Palins book online..

I dont have it yet.

There is something seriously wrong here.

wv repho .. that could mean a number of things.

Lem said...

who the *uck sends an email to a best costumer, like Althouse, warning them .. of anything?

I must say.

reader_iam said...

Gracious. I ruminate aloud (that is, via Twitter) one Friday evening regarding providing a padded service for gymnastics practice in my all-wood-floor home, and one thing leads to another, and the next thing I know, cowmats are not only littering Twitter feeds but are randomly scattered through Althouse comments threads (though not this one, 'til now).

LOL, folks; you know who you are.

Sorry, Althouse.

Though I do think it would be an amusing label, at least for some of us.

/end OT.

Lem said...

it was you!

Freeman had a cowmat comment last night and i had no clue.

so, of course, i said nothing and hoped for the best.

Ann Althouse said...

It's not email. It's a warning when I try to publish.

reader_iam said...

Lem: As has Michael_Haz, chickenlittle, Amba and, I think, Jason (the commenter).

Still cracking up.

Lem said...

that makes it worst in my book.

where is the attention to service?

stop covering up for them. you might not want to move but if the tea bagers teach us anything ;)

blake said...

OH!

So we have some parameters for this previously-thought-rhetorical question:

If you are as crazy as Althouse, you are crazy enough. But how much less crazy can you be and still get it? And, if you're much crazier, will you stop getting it?

As I chant Hari
And think about Bari
Who must be so sorry

Lem said...

oh.. wait.. we been having a discussion about "special treament" ie Polanski..

Althouse its not like you .. what am I thinking?

Raise hell Althouse.. yes you are special!

At least send them an email.

Throughout history, some people have inspired great works of art (all types), incredible passion, the making and breaking of empires even.

Althouse has inspired love and hate, multiple blogs, performance art, renewed interest in photography, stuff like what Chip does, and even a marriage proposal.

Me? I inspire references to--of all blessed things--cowmats.

Thank God I have a sense of humor.

and to think that all she has ever asked for is for her name to be spelled correctly.

Lem said...

I know 'alagos' are not hip online..

but let me ask rhetorically.. if we are lucky to have althouse waht does that make meade?

Some people appear either too have too much time or too much beer on a Saturday afternoon.

Just sayin'

Is there a master list of the labels The Divine Mizz A has used, sorted by frequency? I'd like to see that.
