Exclamation Direct Linking / Bandwidth Theft

I just wanted to post a reminder to all members. If you're going to post a photo, it needs to be hosted on your own space (i.e. Photobucket or the like) and not come off of someone else's server without permission.

Each view of the picture costs the website owner money because it detracts from their bandwidth, which is known as bandwidth theft.

Additionally, make sure you have permission to use a photo, or you may be looking at copyright violations as well.

Please see the PT Guidelines if you have any questions.

A reminder.

This also applies to using a smilie or image that is hosted on another website or forum. PT has 200+ smilies - please use those or upload the image onto a hosting site such as photobucket.
