Exclamation Hotlinking Not Allowed



What is hotlinking?
Hotlinking (also known as direct linking) is when you add an image file to your own website - only instead of uploading the image to your server; you just link it in from another website.


Why is it considered bad practice?
The obvious reason is that you are using the bandwidth of someone else’s server. He is paying the money for the bandwidth of his own website and not for us. It is considered really rude and unethical practice.


Solution

Either you have to upload the image to your own server or use a free image uploading server. Image uploading service at CSS forum has been disabled by the Admin due to technical reasons. The only way left is to upload the images on free image uploading servers that you want to use in your posts and threads on CSS forum.



Recommended free image uploading websites
You can use any service that you like. But I would personally recommend imageshack.
Photobucket
also is a great service.
The reason to prefer imageshack is that it has the option to choose whether you want the image to auto resize or not. If you are using large images and want them to display in full size as they were on your computer hard drive, then imageshack is the best solution. Photobucket can be used to upload small and medium images and it might not auto resize them, but if you upload an image that is having large dimensions then Photobucket will certainly auto resize them. On the other hand imageshack gives you the option to choose.


Special attention please: All posts and threads by any member in any section that contains hotlinked images will be deleted straightaway without any kind of warning and no threads in the feedback regarding this issue will be entertained.

That will be considered hotlinking and will be treated accordingly.

If image uploading is already disabled, than what is the purpose of this warning?

If it is not possible to upload any image on CSS Forum severs (ns1.iinix.com & ns2.iinix.com) now, then there is no question of hotlinking, as there is no possibility to use CSS Forum server bandwidth for images.

Yes you are right I have checked, its good to see that there are moderators on this forum who have good understanding of hotlinking, as earlier one moderator alleged me of using hotlinking but in actual it was not, later he/she accepted.

Last time I saw the insert image tab as you said, but today I tried it, it also asks for the image URL not for direct upload, can you please tell me about the tab where it is, from where images are directly uploaded on forum server as you claimed. I may be trying the wrong one.
