Hotlinking
« on: February 09, 2005, 04:50:49 PM »

I was going through my site logs, and it seems the Madam Malkin and Zonkos images are hot commodities, because they've been linked to from quite a few sites. I changed the access, so that this shouldn't be possible anymore. Lauren preferred others not using the images, so they shouldn't be used at other websites. Especially bad is the fact that doing this steals bandwidth, which I'm already paying extra for. So I've disabled this feature for a while. If you've got images that you use through other sites, they're not going to work now.

If you want to make your own images and can't afford Photoshop, try the Gimp (http://www.gimp.org). And find your own image host. There are lots of hosts out there.

And if I sound mad, it's 'cause I've spent the last two hours trying to figure out how to put a stop to this. >:(
