    Hotlinking is not PERMITTED!

    Please do not hotlink to anything on aarinfantasy's domain. This includes avatars, smilies, PICTURES from the gallery, etc.

    Do not post the url linking to the pictures, instead link to the forum!

    Right now I am trying to fix the hotlinking that many people are doing from the gallery. Please be kind and don't hotlink.

    Thanks

    Mistake?

    I don't understand the problem you were talking about, what the matter?
    Have I done a mistake?

    Baiscally whenever you link a pic or something directly from the site, everytime someone sees that pic that you are useing elsewhere, it's eating up aarin's bandwith. It can be a very bad problem if on big scale. if i want to use a pic thats on a site, I save it, put it onto my geocities page and then use the image from there.

    This is also called "direct linking". At least, that's what we called it in my reviewing days.

    To make it easy to get, imagine you upload a 10MB movie file. Everytime someone wants to view it, they have to download 10MB from your server.
    Now someone else links to your movie file from their website. So, even though it's not even on your site, if someone views their page it still downloads 10MB from your site.

    So if 1 person views each site, it uses up 20MB and you only got one of the visitors yourself.

    Now, imagine you're PAYING for that bandwith. You might not be happy that someone else is using it :3

    A picture might not seem very large, and it usually isn't. But it's usually not only viewed once, either. If you take one 100KB picture, and someone's page gets 100 hits, it's already equal to that movie clip. If it's get 1000 hits... Well, then it starts getting ugly.

    A question... does this hotlinking problem include our sigs and avas or you are just talking about hotlinking in posts?

    Anything uploaded to aarinfantasy.com.
    So directly using something like aarinfantasy.com/image.jpg on anything other then a aarinfantasy.com related (sub)domain would be considered hotlinking.

    example:
    Giving out the url aarinfantasy.com/image.jpg would be hotlinking.

    Giving out the url like aarinfantasy.com/images.html wouldn't be hotlinking.

    Now to answer your question directly.
    Your current avatar, yes. Since it's uploaded to Aarinfantasy.
    Your current signature, no. Since it's uploaded to a Photobucket.

    If I provided a link to the login/registration page somewhere else, is that hotlinking?

    no - that isn't hotlinking.

    Hotlinking to refers stuff like media or images (downloadable/playable files)

    is hotlinking like after you've finished downloading something like an anime and then you upload it onto a video site like youtube? or am i just misunderstanding? not very good w/ technology terms.
