Just a reminder to all members, please do not hotlink. Repeated offenses will result in an official warning and possible suspension.

What is Hotlinking?
It is posting an image from one website onto another one, such as BZ. This not only steals bandwidth from original site, but also may result in broken links overtime (empty posts & etc), an increased server bill for the original site, and potential legal issues.

An Example of Hotlinking: Taking an image from victoriassecret.com, then copying the URL of the image and posting it using the image tags with their URL. It looks like this:


[img=VS Image URL]
There are many free image-hosting sites on the web. Here is a short list of some hosts:
ImageShack - nudity is not allowed on this host
ImageBox
ImageUpper
Imgur
ImageVenue
ImageTitan
PostImage
Photobucket
TinyPic - For images under 1050 pixels in width only

*Images hosted on social media sites such as facebook, instagram, pinterest, tumblr, twitter, VK, etc. are not meant to be hotlinked outside their approved sites.

If there are any questions or comments regarding hotlinking or BZ rules, please feel free to contact a staff member.

Thank you,
The BZ Staff
