This picture

http://cellar.org/attachment.php?att...4&d=1237841881

which was linked to in this post

http://cellar.org/showpost.php?p=548763&postcount=48

has been hotlinked in this thread at gametrailers.com

http://forums.gametrailers.com/threa...997298?page=31

And because that is a hugely popular thread on a hugely popular forum, bandwidth for cellar.org has doubled in the last four days and is generally slowing down the system.

NEVER HOTLINK

It's always something isn't it? Now I have to decide what to do about the situation. Make the attachment a dick pic?

Undertoad 07-21-2011 03:06 PM

I've just fuggin made the pic unavailable. Even to us. That'll do.

I'm not too smart on this stuff. Is using Photobucket okay? What is the best way to attach photos? - I see the address in the 'properties' of some come up as Cellar attachments - mine don't.

Undertoad 07-21-2011 03:45 PM

I would use imgur.com, I think they have better rules about this sort of thing.

Rhianne 07-21-2011 03:45 PM

...or are you saying we shouldn't link pictures from here to elsewhere?

Sorry, I promise I'm not really stupid!

classicman 07-21-2011 03:46 PM

OK so I see the image I want, drag and drop to my desktop, attach it to my post and then delete it from my desktop.
That correct?

glatt 07-21-2011 03:47 PM

You can do an attachment, which is good, because then the picture is hosted by the Cellar. And you can also put it on an image hosting site where you have an account, like photobucket or flickr, etc., and just follow the policies that they have for linking.

edit: And I got distracted while typing this so I see it's been answered.

Save picture to desktop. (right click on pic and save to...)

REsize if necessary using MS Pic Manager (compress for web pages)

Use Manage Attachments while in Advanced (not available in quick reply)

Browse for file, find your desktop, attach photo.

Close window.

Submit reply.

It doesn't care if you leave it on your computer or not.

Oy vey

Rhianne 07-21-2011 04:07 PM

Thanks everyone.

infinite monkey 07-21-2011 04:23 PM

No, don't do it that way. It doesn't work as of about 20 minutes ago:

I guess you'll have to hotlink. ;)

Undertoad 07-21-2011 04:34 PM

That was me, trying to figure out the best way to block those fuckers... and blocking all of us as a result. It works now.
