Episode 82 of my science fiction podcast is now up at Wired.com. In this show we interview Canadian science fiction author Robert J. Sawyer. Then stick around after the interview as guest geek Matt London joins us to discuss the controversy surrounding Games Workshop trademarking the term “space marine.”
So Facebook has a ridiculous new policy that promoted images can’t be comprised of more than 20% text. With that in mind I put together the image below. It’s 840 pixels tall. 20% of 840 is 168. The image consists of three text bars that are 74, 41, and 41 pixels tall, for a total of 156. So even if you count the entire height and width of each text bar as “text,” the image is still clearly less than 20% text. Nevertheless, this image was just rejected for being “more than 20% text.” Very frustrating.
