Here's the image you tried to display:



You have to use the IMG tag (the little yellow icon in the toolbar) and paste a direct img link. Like a .jpg. You tried linking the webpage for the image.

Just wondering, did you do any mods to your edge? I've heard the lighting is pretty bad, but I see you have some HC growing. Nice tank, btw! Reminds me of that Windows background haha
