Just clocked this thread..... aSB you may have answered it.... but I haven't followed what the issue is / was here?
Are you saying pictures and links from personal hosting isnt allowed? Surely not?
OK, I can understand if the site / links was some sort of commercial promotion.... or have I missed whats been done here?
I've always used my own domains to host images and such. Its never been an issue before... hence why I've "re-opened" the thread just to clarify whats meant.
