Guys, until we get onto our own servers, we are requesting that you host the images that you post at a third party site, such as Photo Bucket. We're using up resources that we can't afford to right now by hosting them ourselves. We're going to give you until Dec. 10th to change it and those that don't, will have theirs deleted in order to conserve space. People that persist in not using the third party method will be fed to the rabid munchkins that we keep in the dungeon.

After that, we will be doing a massive revamp of this section and everything that is NOT using a third party site will be deleted and you will lose your work if you do not comply with this policy. We're not trying to be harsh or mean, but we are trying to lighten the load of the site while we are being hosted by Pescado. The less this server has to strain to keep up with the demand on its resources, the more the site will stay up and not crash. Thanks, and have fun!

Hi, everyone!  Smiley  Just to add on to the new picture policy for the forum, most of everything will remain the same, but a few much needed items are now tacked on to the "picture rules" for the sake of keeping house and as reminders:

  • Please remember to follow all of the Site Rules and Guidelines.  Tolerance for repeat offenders has decreased since the changes, so remember to keep yourselves updated on what is expected from all users here on this site.  

  • All pictures are to be no more than 600 X 600 dpi, suitable for a PG-13 forum*, and hosted on a third party site.  (Photobucket, Tinypic, Imageshack, etc.) You may share links to pictures that are bigger, but please do not wrap image tags around hosted pictures that are larger than the forum's maximum size limit.

    * Important Note:  To clarify due to recent suggestive pictures:  Do not include anything that has well more than borderline sexual themes, any pictures that have sims with anatomically-correct skin uncensored, and anything involving sim children engaging in adult romantic actions and/or dressed in a risque manner. (aka: depicting sim children in "tramp-wear", doing "adult-themed" actions, and other unacceptable/illegal things).  It will not be tolerated on this site, and you will more than likely get more than just a warning for posting such pictures.

  • As admirable as another user's pictures can be, and as tempting as it is to simply quote one of their posts with every single one of their pictures included, please refrain from quoting pictures from now on.  (Once again, doing that saves those with slow connections loading time.)  If you must quote another user's post, please remove all image links from the quote area before posting.  If not done, any quoted pictures will be removed, and repeat offenders will be reminded after a certain amount of removed images.

  • Please resist the urge to hotlink pictures directly from other web sites... stealing other people's bandwidth without permission is a no-no.

  • Try to avoid double/triple/quadruple (or any number of back-to-back) posting if possible, as it is considered a form of site spamming.  If you need to add on any additional info to your posts, please use the "Modify" option located in the upper right-hand corner of your posts.  From now on, any double posts that are made will be merged together, so don't be too alarmed if your post count drops slightly.

Now that we finally have a "cleaner" house, enjoy yourselves, and keep on showing us your sims' good sides!  Grin
