The problem “hotlinking” to ReloadersNest is increasing in an alarming tempo and needs to taken action on.
Hotlinking is when someone creates a webpage on their server and use images stored on this server. This is most commonly seen on forums these days. When someone places a post on a forum on the web and within his post he places an image. The source URL for this image is however on this server. The problem with this hotlinking is when ReloadersNest serves these images to really busy forums, it will utilize a large bandwidth to ReloadersNest (remember ReloadersNest are serving the image at the other forum).
Tonight it was really bad. For every visitor at ReloadersNest, our web server sent images to 20 visitors on other pages/forums. The number reached 500 tonight. This will cause the Internet link and web server to slow down.

To prevent this I have tonight disabled the possibility to hotlink to images at ReloadersNest. If you have placed such an image on another forum, you will notice that the image won’t be shown.
