Well, I am not all that sure. It is a band width issue, I would imagine. I would assume that if it is a Cub Related Picture and you are using it on the Forums, that it would probably be ok to hot-link it to another site, provided it isn't going to get thousands of hits I imagine. But to be on the safe side, I would get hold of Lil-Dog as he is the owner/operator of the FarmallCub/CubFest Photo Host Server.

If you are wanting to host pics on the web for the exclusive use of other sites.. then it would not be a good idea I would think.. that would be best hosted on photobucket or geocities then.

The rationale for the Photo Host, was to provide a spot to store images that could be linked to this server that would not have view caps on it as many of the so-called freebie hosting services do like geocities, kodak, hp canon and others...

But check with Lil-Dog to be sure....

your reply is exactly the reason i asked. maybe lildog will reply.

i have picutres that i want to use here posted here. it would be a lot of work for me, im on dialup, to download them to another host to use elsewhere. but i will do just that to keep from stepping on any toes. im just trying save a little effort on my part.

the picture host here is easy to use and very convient. i try to follow the rules of "your house" when im there. thank you for answering.

Fury III,

As Rudi stated, the primary purpose of the photo host is for use on this board, but if you would like to use the same photos elsewhere, there is no problem with that. Plus, every member has a "personal" space on the server to store pictures not necessarily for use on this board. So, go for it.
