Your image didn't show up because you leeched it from ComingSoon instead of rehosting it on your own space or an image provider. Do not do this.
Sorry. I didn't know you couldn't to this.
This message board forcing you to essentially steal content to host it on your own webspace is nothing new. Which is funny, because inline linking does not violate copyright law, rehosting does.
The rule has nothing to do with copyright, it's about not leeching another site's bandwidth.

And I tell you it has a lot to do with copyright. When you ask people to instead rehost images you are asking them to infringe copyrights.

If he hadn't rehosted the image, it wouldn't have shown up. That's not because of the messageboard, that's because of the server where the image is hosted.

The board forces you to do nothing, they ask you not to hotlink. They do not force you to post the picture.

Indeed. A simpler concept to understand is yet to be had.

The zipper on mine popped off, I'm hoping I can fix it.

Mine was cheap. I got it from Walmart while I was buying a new shower curtain. It intrigued me.

He doesn't have to rehost it. He can just link to it instead.

That Poster is very cool. I see the end of Batman coming. Maybe Gordon and Wayne are both in Hospital beds in that Trailer.

^ I usually do link to posters. I thought that this was basically the same idea but making it easier and quicker for readers to see the poster. I'm basically a tech doofus.

Anyway, cool poster.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

I think visiting Jim in hospital is maybe what either decides Bruce to "retire" as Batman feeling guilty over whatever happened to his friend or the incident that galvanizes him to return.

^ How's this for silly theory of the day?

Bane breaks Batman and Joseph Gordon-Levitt's John Blake is the Jean-Paul Vallely of this movie, assuming the mantle from Bruce Wayne.

^ Not so silly. I've read or seen variations of that before. My own theory on Blake though is that he is a corrupt cop of some kind. Haven't figured him out yet. I do think though despite that JGL will have a significant role in the film.

Regarding the poster: I really like it, one of the best posters used for Nolan's Batman-films.

Or either he becomes....Robin! I think JGL doesn't have the build for taking on Bane as Jean-Paul Vallely.
