This might actually be worse than the religion thread decision.

Why can't I get this to load?

This new rule seriously sucks. Any advice?

you aren't using the image's url...you are using the link to a page that displays the image...you need to right click on the image and get its url...

Nothing wrong with where my avi is hosted. It is a dumb rule.

I'm using a Mac. No right click. Joined photobucket. Still cant get images to load. Since these are the new rules there should be a HELP section with directions.

I'm using a Mac too and it's not working on any of the approved sites. And yes I'm using the image URL.

Macs have had right click for like a decade now.

I use the same URL for every web forum I go to, and to update my avatar I just FTP and overwrite it.

I have to be a member of a web site and go out of my way to update my avatar on here.

I have been an admin on several different message boards and have never heard of this kind of rule. I cannot understand a single "security" reason for not being able to link an image onto this forum unless the boards themselves are seriously poorly designed and can somehow allow cross site scripting just from linking an image.

And Chicken is still allowing images to be linked from anywhere on the web in posts, so I don't see how there's less of a risk now if there ever even was one.

Yup. If you're that concerned about security then disable dynamic images (any URL with a ? in it).
