Nothing in their TOS prohibits it (barring cases of theft). Besides, I would imagine they'd just block direct-linking if that were the case.

Yeah, there's nothing in DA that bans hotlinking.

And would tumblr be ok? It's basically an imagehosting/blog site.

What about Dropbox linking?

Meister 10-11-2012 03:12 AM

Looks like we can start making that list properly.

ISP hosting is fine, but link only from your own accounts. I'm guessing synk is basically the only one around here who does this so that's not even going to be an issue, just mentioning it for the record. really is pretty handy, sadpanda is a no-brainer, dropbox is currently approved in the funpix thread therefore completely okay as well. tumblr doesn't seem to give a shit so what the hell, it goes on the list.

I dunno about deviantart, they're not really an image hoster in that sense. I'm guessing most of you use it to show things you've done and that's alright, but when you use someone else's work you should probably link to the page directly or rehost the image (and link that to the page as a courtesy).

up and running

This is a re-post of an image used in one of our picture threads (an imageshack hosted pic):

As seen, this should now be working for all newly-made posts and edits of existing posts from this point forward.
Images on domains not white-listed will be shown as italicized URLS.

So, to re-iterate, this will only effect new posts or any post you go back and edit. Therefor, if you have a domain that you think should be allowed and it is not when you make a future post or edit one after today, that's not a big problem -- if we add it, you merely would have to edit your post to get it to show the image.

I have edited the OP to hold the current "list" for now.

edit: Of course, as you make a post or edit an old one that has one of these domains for its picture(s) and it doesn't allow the image to be displayed, please let us know!

Ummm can we get steam screenshots into the approved list? Their urls look like this

For pleases and whatnot.

Can we get Tumblr unlocked please?

Flarecobra 02-13-2013 02:06 PM

I just posted up something that was on Tumblr, it is unlocked..

Probably preferable to rehost on an image site honestly.
