Hiya i recently noticed if i share a page to Facebook the thread creators avatar is shown, any easy fix so as the Aussie C one pops up, similar to webdorks wirded one, not the annual girly pics, that out of context make no sence.

This recently offended a mod of a page, he thought it was aimed at him and did not even bother to click the link to see what i was sharing, likewise if my avatar, it is not always what i was sharing.
... thoughts?

That is totally out of our control, sorry. Which page of the thread facebook decides to visit to render a snapshot of the link, or which avatar they decide to use is their decision alone.

It is consistant to first post of thread page linked, so i wondered if it was from our site generated, no arrow & choice of preview image, that is common of the facebook software, from fetching links, with multiple images available.

Thanks for looking into it.

I suspect that Firefox renders the entire page rather than where the anchor points on the page (ie. facebook ignores everything from # onwards)

Perhaps try sharing a post with a link such as this

viewtopic.php?f=73&t=19797&p=598815#p598815

rather than this

viewtopic.php?f=73&t=19797&view=unread#p598815

difference being that first contains post ID before #, unlike the other which doesn't
