    Yesterday, my hit signature was taken down for apparently being hit linked and can be replaced without me knowing.

    I have a few questions on that.

    1. I had that image for about two and a half weeks now, so I don't get why it just now removed.

    2. It said to upload from a hosting site, even though it was uploaded on a hosting sight.

    3. It also said my image could be replaced with a 'nasty or pornographic' image. But what are the chances on that happening? I haven't seen that happen since my time on TFW.

    So if my questions can get answered, I'd appreciate it.

    Where was your signature hosted? Were you using an actual hosting site like Photobucket, Imgur, Imageshack, Tinypic, etc.? If your image is hotlinked from someone elses website, then the image can be replaced. Just because you haven't seen it doesn't mean it won't or hasn't happened.

    Also, doesn't matter how long you've had it. If it violates our signature rules we'll remove it when we see it.

    The uploader site is SadPanda, which I know a couple other users use for their uploader. It's a free hosting sight, so maybe that's why it'd be concidered hotlinked.

    It's not really a big deal, to be honest.

    I think the problem was that most people have probably never heard of the site. I know I haven't. I'll let them know it's an actual hosting site. Sorry bout that.
