    Recently, we have noticed that users are directly imbedding images from other sites on here. Everytime someone opens a thread here that has an embedded image from another site on it, that server gets hit. They have asked us to curb this activity.

    Thus, as of right now, straight from the top, [blockquote]Quote:[hr][/hr]Embedding images from every other "competitor" to TFN is a no-no, and is bannable on second offense.[hr][/hr][/blockquote]So, be advised: you may not embed images from other sites in your posts. Linking to that image (by providing the URL, as opposed to posting the image) is technically OK. Any violations of this rule will get you a warning, and a second violation will result in your being banned.

    Thanks in advance!
