Re: OFFICIAL CONTEST: WI's 3rd Birthday! (Ends April 29th, 2010)
" "Hotlinking" is when, instead of saving a picture to your computer and then uploading it to Webkinz Insider, you copy the address of the picture on another site and use that address to post the picture here on WI. This takes away server/processing resources from the other site and can slow down Webkinz Insider because WI's server has to look back at that other site every time it wants to load a page. If the other site has a small or slow server, this can drag down both sites.
There are exceptions. Sites like "tinypic", "photobucket", "imageshack", etc that are set up specifically for you to hotlink to are different. These sites are made for hotlinking. They have super servers that are very fast and are set up to handle this sort of thing. Any site that actually gives you the code and tells you to cut and paste it to where you want the image to go is fine.
