Listen up! - just a note

ok people listen up,:)

Today i will talk about why hotlinking pictures is bad bad.

Alot of you,including me have hotlinked pictures. So what is hotlinked pictures?
It is when you just copy the link of a picture and post it. Now,one picture is not that bad to hotlink but mostly we do post 10 pictures (more or less) in a row and the pictures can be over 400kb big.

What does this mean?

ok,lets say you post 10 pictures that are 400kb big.
So that means,every time a user looks at the thread it has to load 400kb X 10 =4mb ,and thats every time a user views the thread,usually we have over 300(or more) views per thread.

This makes the owner of the server very very pissed because its bandwidth theft and the admin will delete the pictures.

So what can be done?

Put the pictures on Imageshack (www.imageshack.ws) and post the thumbnail only.

for example:



is this a rule?

No,not a rule ..its up to you,a lot of admins out there will be happy


cool,so how do i make thumbnails?

ok here goes:

1. Save the picture you want to post on your computer.

2. go to http://www.imageshack.us.

3. press "choose" and a window comes up,choose the picture you want to post on SSC and then press "host it"

4.now a new page comes up, you will see the text: "Thumbnail for forums (1)"

just copy the url-line before the text that says "Thumbnail for forums (1)" and post the link on SSC:)

then you will get a clickable thumbnail like this:
