All,

Now that I've added thumbnails for attachments lets all try to stop relinking the images in posts (using the {img} to display something you attached). This kills our bandwidth (every time someone opens a thread and the image is not in their cache it dings us).

We are going to let it slide for a little bit but going forward we will start editing posts where attachments are relinked.

Thanks,

Ryan

Ryan,

Can i use http links instead of img? I have some pics I want to post and I have them on my home dir from my isp.

Thanks

Cino

That's fine - what we are trying to stop is hotlinking images attached on this site. Link from anywhere else as much as you want as that does not eat up the bandwidth allocation for gagt.com ;)

or to make it even more easier to understand. Don't attach an image to a post, and then edit the post to include the {img}address of the image I just attached to this thread here{/img}.
