    DeviantART DOESN'T ALLOW HOTLINKING!!!!!! NEITHER DOES BLOGGER!

    OK, I'm going to say this ONE MORE TIME:
    Even if you have a deviantart account, you still need to host your pictures somewhere else to post them here, or attach them directly. Deviantart has code on their site that blocks remote linking (hotlinking) of images. You will see your images fine, because they are already in your cashe, but everyone else will get a red X, a blue ?, or nothing at all, and your thread will just fill up with posts saying "I can't see it."

    I'm not sure I know what "hotlinking" is... I posted some links to photobucket, because the pics I uploaded to my site here keep dissappearing to show the rooster logo instead. Was that a "forbidden" act?

    If so, sorry about it. I thought saving bandwith is kind of a good thing...
    Best, W.

    Hotlinking is when you post a link on one site to a picture that is hosted on another site.
    Some sites allow this (such as photobucket) while others do not (such as deviantart).
    The rooster logo shows up because some new technology is being implemented at conceptart.org right now and there are still some bugs to be worked out.

    Hosting your pictures at photobucket is perfectly fine.
    Here's some more info about image hosting:

    It opens as a forbidden link - for one.

    Also, its much easier just to host it on photobucket or imageshack and save us clicking a link to see each picture anyway.

    I've noticed people starting to try to link from their Blogger.com pages.
    Sorry folks, same deal.

    Since CA now allows all registered users to attach files, there's really no need for remote hosting.
