Posting on the board
Images must only be posted from YOUR webspace. If you post images by directly linking them from another site, you are in effect stealing that sites bandwidth. Your posting will be removed and repeated infringement will led to cautions or a ban.
You may reply to a picture post to share your views on the image or subject, but please remember it can be offensive to criticise a topic or picture when the posting member has taken the time and effort to find, sometimes scan, upload and post it. Members who continually do nothing but criticise other members pictures may be cautioned. When replying to a picture topic, do not quote the original pictures in your reply.
If you have any objections or complaints regarding someone else's posting please contact a moderator via the "Report This Post" button. Do not use the public forums.
