Mine don't. shareddit is designed to help you share reddit posts and comments, when the people you want to share with don't know how (or don't want) to use reddit.
But sometimes, it's hard to get everything into a screenshot. shareddit does the tedious work for you, by turning the reddit post (and possibly its comments) into a perfectly rendered and artifact-free PNG image.
For convenience, there are currently three ways to use shareddit. To capture a post and none of its comments, use the post's permalink. To capture a comment and its parents, use the permalink of the last comment to be included in the image.
Permalinks are the "true" link of a post or comment. They follow the form

Using shareddit-bot is perfect for when there might be multiple redditors who would like to share the image. Mobile users may also find it easier to use. When using shareddit-bot (or any reddit bot), avoid using spamming subreddits or comment sections with summons. However, if you like shareddit, it also helps spread the word and gain users. :)
/u/shareddit-botto the post, or the last comment to be included in the image. After a few moments, the bot will reply with a link to the image page.
shareddit's image generation uses the same link structure as reddit. Add "sha" to the reddit.com URL, turning it into shareddit.com. The image will start generating and be displayed shortly.
shareddit is very new. You may encounter bugs or issues. If you do, please send me a PM at /u/C1RRU5.
Currently, image and self posts work best. Using posts that link to articles or videos will generate an image with only the post title, no website or video thumbnail. Both videos and external thumbnails will be supported very soon.
