Reminder: Hotlinking and Large Images
 
Since the move to vBulletin, we've had an increase in people posting hotlinked images, so it's time for another reminder. Here's a recap of the board's rules regarding images.

Picture Size: Images are to be no larger than 640X480. We would also like you to bear in mind our users on dial-up and keep the image filesize as close to 70 KB as possible. Obviously, the image size rules are more relaxed in threads that have a warning in the title that there are large images, such as caption threads or member photo threads.

Hotlinking: You may only post pictures which are hosted by you. If you see a picture online and it doesn't violate that sites copyright restrictions, please save the image locally, then upload it to your photo hosting space on the Web (i.e. your own personal website, or a hosting service like flickr, ImageShack or Photobucket). Do not post a picture that is hosted on any other website or webspace that isn't yours (this is known as hotlinking).

Large or hotlinked images will be edited out of posts or turned into links, and users posting them may receive warnings.

Just as an addition to Spiffy's post... premium members have the ability to attach images to their posts. So if you don't have the know how or inclanation to upload your own photos, check out the premium membership scheme.
