    Just a reminder if you are posting images to the forums.

    Do not hotlink directly to another websites images, use a free image host or upload them to our Media section or upload directly to the forum post you are making.

    Hotlinking uses the bandwidth of another persons server and is not allowed.

    See here for help on how to upload pics to your posts

    Thank you for your co-operation

    Well stated.. hotlinking is one of my pet peeves in another forum I visit. skyscrapercity...believe it or not they allow hotlinking & massive photos...but it is a great forum and one of the largest online.

    In a forum that I was the head mod for seven years this is what I wrote about hotlinking.

    "Gents.. do not hot-link your photos. Use a photo hosting site such as imageshack, imgur, photobucket..there are many, many others. DO NOT use tinypic. After a few months they will re-issue your URL of your photo to some bonehead that post..well anything.

    Thank you."
