hotlinking - someone slap them for us

Recommended Posts

Be appreciated if anyone knocking around australia, goes and give them soul biscuit types a slap and a kick up the arse and tell them to stop "hotlinking" images from the soul-source photo gallery on their web site

No hassle with people, downloading stuff and using it elsewhere, or the odd image link posted here and there, , but when they just blatently hotlink images and blag this sites bandwidth and resources that cost hard cash and then when you throw in all the hassle had trying to avoid extra bandwidth charges recently ....

maybe its just ignorance on their bit, but give em a kick anyway and tell them technical term for "hotlinking" is .......robbing :)

Sounds painful Mike i think there are a couple of Aussie Soulies on the forum perhaps they can help you out if not give Ali a call/shout she is in contact with a few over there through ANS/KTF etc Deny J and John Warren etc so she may be able to point you in the direction of a contact. ;o)

nah...

sent em a email a couple of days ago,

no reply, hence request for someone to give em a kick

Cheers john anyway, its usually no big thing, and as said have no problem with people doing it with one or two images, such as flyer, or a photo on a forum somewhere etc etc

but when do it the way they have....

........ well, for now just say giving them benifit of doubt at moment but that is quickly running out

end of day -

everytime someone visits their site front page

the users browser is sent here in background, it downloads 4 large images of this site

and then displays them as a integral part of that site

meaning their site uses this site webspace, its bandwidth and its resources

to display itself

ok going by number of visitors they get may have no big noticeable effect on site but thats not the issue
