Wow! Apparently DevRant saves custom images for every rant!

As far as I can tell, these can be accessed by adding "/image.png" to the end of your rant link!

    You have to remove content bit from URL though

    devrant[DOT]io/rants/817817/wow-apparently-devrant-saves-custom-images-for-every-rant-as-far-as-i-can-tell-t/image.png -- returns 404

    devrant[DOT]io/rants/817817/image.png -- works

    Ya.. I forgot to mention that

    I think that is the image that gets shared on FB or Twitter.
    It also explains why edits are time limited.

    It would be nice to see the ranter's avatar instead of the classic one though. Many people tell me mine looks exactly like me :D

    @oscarascal yes, new image cards with user avatar and bg color are designed, just waiting to get built

    @trogus so it is @dfox to blame :P

    @gitpush normally the case, but I think @trogus actually took on the challenge of doing the backend work (in addition to the design) for the new image design in this case :)

    DevRant stickers, here I come! (Actually here you come because that's how sending something in the mail works)

    I wonder if the image is generated when the rant is created, or lazily when it's first needed, or possibly even on every request.

    @configurator good observation :) They are dynamic - every request.
