From the actual Link: (ie: if you click on the link, this is what they write)

Quote:
Part1: This next set of interviews is our second two-parter of the season. In this first part, we talk about GURPS Basic Set 4 with Sean Punch. We discuss the ins and outs of the GURPS system, and how the system has changed and adapted over the number of years it has been around. Focusing on 4th edition, Sean offers us a lot to think about concerning role-playing games that offer such a comprehensive system to its players.
Quote:
Part 2: In this episode we discuss one of the new GURPS line titled Action! Sean discusses how this iteration of the GURPS system aims to bring the players into their very own action movie. We explore the ins and outs of the system as well as the influences that Sean sought to bring players such an exciting version of GURPS.

That's not link dumping. You posted where the links go, and why you are posting them.

Correct. If the links come with the name of the target site and a justification for posting, then you're good. Explaining what's there in detail is not required. Example of a link dump:

Should they remake comics as movies? Discuss.


Example of an okay post:

The new Thor movie (IMDb link) has me wondering whether they should remake comics as movies. Opinions?


People who can't see the difference are advised not to post links.

Ah. I was pretty sure you had to give a description of what was in it, or at the very least something that people can discuss without actually clicking the link, for it to not be considered link-dumping. For example, when linking to a news story, I've seen moderators say that it's link-dumping if you don't actually describe the news story (or at least copy it) in your post, rather than just saying its title, where it's from, and then linking to it.

Your links were 100% fine. You have nothing to worry about!

Thank you. The sound could've been better, but Skype has limits . . . I can hear when the software hitches because however mumbly I may be, I don't talk like a voice synthesizer. Also, I had just recovered from losing my voice! ;) I'm glad to hear that despite these issues, it came across okay!

I have a nice wired broadband connection and an expensive mic . . . I think it's mostly an artifact of their encoding. Certain kinds of compression aren't kind.

Yes that can deftly be an issue, actully a major issue.

There is also the room's acoustics.

I don't know if it is a factor. Krom sounded OK when he was interviewed with the rest of the SJG gang on 'Happy Jacks RPG'.
