![enter image description here][1]

What does the image description here affect? Does it ever show up somehow other than when I edit a post?

I put "yuk" there. So what?

«For the screen readers of visually impaired, for browsers that don't show images, for cases where Imgur is blocked, and for search engine indexes: please enter a good description.»

    $\begingroup$ ahh. To all "visually impaired" and search engines, please accept my apology...I've gotta edit some old posts of mine... $\endgroup$ – draks ... Jan 30 '13 at 20:16
  • $\begingroup$ Imgur is blocked on my computer... it is helpful when people add the "title" text. $\endgroup$ – apnorton Feb 1 '13 at 3:06

I once had a clever remark for a question. (This was in a different stackexchange forum.) It was mostly an image, so I posted it as an Answer. But the software (or maybe a moderator) changed it to a Comment. Now it no longer shows the image, just a link to the image together with the text "enter image description here", since I had not entered a description.


Check the source code
