Oh and isnt that whats called "hotlinking?"


Is that against the rules? :-o I've seen mods do it, so I figured it was ok. I thought it was only bad when your website does it. When posters do it, it just promotes the site you're linking too, doesn't it?

Do you actually go through all 7 steps for every picture you post? Who's got time for that?

The problem with hotlinking is that the website you're linking to can change their images or remove them all together, also I think it steals bandwidth or something like that...I don't really even know what that means I think I just read it somewhere. :-B

And yup thats the procedure I go through every time but it really doesn't take long at all, besides what the hell else am I doing. :-b ;-D

Exactly. That's the danger of hotlinking. You may "think" you're posting up a pic of Jessica Alba or whatever, and since it's in your cookies, that's what you see, but many webmasters out there swap out the pic with some sort of disgusting porn or something horribly bloody and brutal to "punish" those that hotlink.

Hotlinking = bad, very bad.

B) Right-click and choose Properties. Copy the URL location of the photo.

C) Go to PhotoBucket or ImageShack and paste the URL into their interface (you'll need a free account if you don't have one).

D) The hosting service will then load the picture and give you a code. Copy the code, then paste it into your post.

The code will look something like this:
Code: Select all

That allows you to post this:

You could think of government workers like teenagers. You pay them an allowance, but do you get any work out them? They eat the food, put their feet on the furniture and complain loudly whenever they are unhappy.

Yea....I know someone that always hotlinks....they didnt know that all that could happen. They were just too lazy to do the photobucket thing most times. Ill make sure to let them know that hotlinking is not the way to go. 8-o :-o :-D
