Here's my best explanation: Hot-linking is when you post a picture and it has to have permission, or you are not allowed to use it. Like, you copy and paste some type of image... that isn't supposed to be posted. Some sites that you can post are TinyPic, PhotoBucket etc. I hope someone posts a better explanation than me!
We do not allow hotlinking on WI. When you see a graphic on here or any other website, that image is hosted somewhere and uses that site's "bandwidth" to display the graphic. If you copy the link location of a graphic then paste it in your post as an image, you're using the other site's bandwidth to display it on WebkinzInsider. This is called hotlinking (also called "stealing bandwidth"). This can sometimes cause performance issues for both websites.
