The current template for community ads looks like this:

[![Tagline to show on mouseover][1]][2]

   [1]: http://image-url
   [2]: http://clickthrough-url 

This is rendered in the preview on page load, and it causes a wasted request to http://image-url. Depending on browser timeout settings the loading indicator may last much longer than needed.

Please use a real URL to avoid the impression of overly long load time for that page.

This has now been fixed. A placeholder image with a real URL is now included in the post preview.
