    I used to have a sig but it was taken down because it was hot linked. What is hot linking and how do I prevent it?

    Hot linking is when you post a direct link to an item. What we don't allow is doing that from other peoples websites. For sigs and such, please use an image hosting service such as imgur.com or photobucket.com.

    You can select the picture you want and upload it to the photo hosting service.
