As with all sections on this forum including new ones, hotlinking images is not allowed. If you do not know, hotlinking is a violation of the board rules and constant hotlinking of images can result in a warning (and if it continues, a ban). What is hotlinking?

 

Hotlinking Images

 

Please do not hotlink images (whether in your topics/posts, avatars or signatures). "Hotlinking" is when you link directly to a site's image. For example "http://www.wwe.com/johncena.jpg". Using that image would be hotlinking. If you wish to use images on the site, please make sure to upload them to www.imageshack.us or www.tinypic.com before posting.

 

As mentioned in the last sentence of the explanation, you can upload them to a variety of sites. Such as:

 

- imgur.com

- www.tinypic.com

- www.photobucket.com

- picturepush.com

 

There are many others around the internet. Please, if you have images to post, upload them to an image uploading site and then post. It'll only take a few seconds.

 

Thanks.
