Lightbulb Ooooh! I just had an idea that I think some members will quite like! ;D

Hi Everyone!!!

I had an idea that I think most members will like.

I think there should be an option of not allowing people to "hotlink" on your avatar and signature (if you don't know what that means, "hotlink" means saving the image). This way, people couldn't use certain signatures or avatars of yours without asking.

A friend of mine had a signature that was specially made for her, but someone used it without asking. I'm not trying to be rude or anything, but I don't really like when this happens , because if someone has an avvie/siggy that was theirs and was specially made for them, it's frusterating if someone takes it without asking. But on the other hand, some people use images by accident. That person might not know it was yours (they could have gotten it from a friend or on a site or somewhere else). That's why I think it'd be much easier if there was a no "hotlinking" option. Because if you they really wanted it, they could always ask, then everyone's happy.

I bet that this has happened to a few other people before, (including myself)

So...post what you think.

Thanks!

Its a good idea, but there is a way around it... (not posting how so people don't get ideas )... Maybe you should write Their name (ex, cocogirl) in small font in a corner on an avvie or siggy that way people won't take it
Or, you can PM the person and say, "I made that myself, do you mind not using it?" or "I had that specially made for my by a friend, could you please use something else?" I know sometimes it doesn't work, but its worth the try
Which by the way, I LOVE your twilight siggy!

Yeah...I've tried that, and sometimes it doesn't work unfortunetly...but most of the time it should work.

But that's a very good point thanks.

THANKS, I made my sig!

I write my name in the corner of some avatars I make, (Like I should have on the one riht now!)
I have had someone steal one of my avatars and signatures before and I just PMed them saying "I made that myself, do you mind changing avatar/signature. It is my work. Thankyou" and they changed it!
It is frustrating when this happens! It makes me upset if it happens to me. I use the "name in a corner" option quite often(even though I forgot on my new avatar and sig!)
Good thread!

The name thing works quite a bit, only the most daring members steal them! xD

I agree, I really dont like it when people take my Avvies/Siggys without my permission, this this would be REALLY good!

As far as I know, on this site anyway, no hotlinking of anything is allowed anyway. Now them copying it to their computer then uploading can't be stopped but there shouldn't be a way for them to hotlink anything. If I find out different I will update this.
