Had a weird thing happen with a photo added to a question - it was replaced by a different photo - happen to anyone else?

I swear I had a different photo than the one that is reflected on the question now. Freaks me out. I went to vote up answers and close the question and this gun photo appeared ...

  • For a while last night, it was a picture of a giant crowd of angry Tunisians - which put the question in a whole different light. I think you had a dynamic link in there instead of a permanent one.

  • Maybe they edited their post?

  • Wait I saw you posted it. I have no idea that is weird.

  • Did you add the image from a file, or as a hyperlink to an image you found somewhere? If it's a hyperlink to someone else's image, they may have replaced the original with a different one with the same name. OK, I looked at the source for your question, and probably newsweek replaced with another image at that path.

  • Ah if you linked the main page of say newsweek then your picture will change as they update their site etc. My suggestion would ne to try to find the same picture under google images or something and open it as it's own file and link to that photo.

  • Oh, that explains it - I thought I had some weird hacker into my question. Problem solved!
