Hotlinking [Nov. 26th, 2007|06:09 am]
Hotlinkers can't hide forever...
Hi guys. I'm not an icon maker, but I wanted to bring something to your attention since I have many friends who are. There is a case of hot linking and possibly worse at Stop_plagiarism. Maybe check it out and make sure your icons are not affected and if you have information, share it.

Be well!

Damned Hotlinkers [Nov. 3rd, 2007|12:04 am]
Hotlinkers can't hide forever...

You don't know how I hate them, it's always the same, they steal my icons, then hotlinking and post in forums, and finally I receive a message from photobucket telling me you bandwith is..... :@@@@@@@@

Only I want to warn you about the damned pages where they are hotlinking lots of icons of the show Veronica Mars and from Lost. I think I saw lots of icons of great makers here at lj, but there are 40 pages and I'm dizzy now.

in this one are hotlinking icons from the show Veronica Mars

and in this from Lost

Now I'm going to break my head with something ...

Btvs: Italian forum hotlinking icons [Oct. 15th, 2007|10:46 am]
Hotlinkers can't hide forever...

I have found tons of referrals of my domain (I host my fanart in my own server) from this site called Three Slayers Gdr, it looks like it is an Italian forum.

From what I can see they use icons as part of the thread presentation but they hotlink instead of saving in their own account. I haven't found the way of contacting them because the option to email the admin is strangely off. I also haven't seen if they're using them in other ways.

I also found referrals from another Italian forum that seems inactive or recently created and not open yet. It is called NY Slayers, it looks like only my icons are used there.

I'm going to change my icons to another image, lets see if they like that.

Peyton/Lucas OTH icons on Xanga [Sep. 29th, 2007|06:21 pm]
Hotlinkers can't hide forever...

cj_same actually said this over in a comment in colorwave but since there are tons of icons being hotlinked it seems like, I figured it warranted a post here (and hey, I made the community, so I can decide that ;))

http://www.xanga.com/home.aspx?user=leytonlove is hotlinking tons (it froze up my computer but even after it had loaded a lot, it still said it had 1300+ pics left to open, so...) of Peyton/Lucas One Tree Hill icons

a few people have changed their icons to the wonderful 'don't hotlink' me banners, but I'm not sure if everyone else knows. I'm also not sure who else is being hotlinked since I can't actually keep the page loaded, if anyone wants to leave LJ names or photobucket names in comments, that'd be wonderfully helpful and I'll edit the post to add them... :)

xforblueskies I think
blue_star_light maybe
bentfire/jadedmisery who I left a comment for

iconscraper: "Icon Scraper - Scraped from the LJ picture feed."

Hotlinked: icons from many fandoms - Buffy, Firefly, Veronica Mars, anime, The Office, Lost, actors, actresses, TV shows, movies, etc. - and non-fandom icons too.

One of my icons is hotlinked in the October 14th post, and given the description of the community on the profile, I suspect every other icon posted there is hotlinked too.

What is being hotlinked: Btvs and The OC icons.
Who (if anyone) else is being hotlinked: I don't know who else specifically, but there's a LOT.
If you have a xanga, could you please try getting in touch with her? I see nowhere to that doesn't require me to get a xanga and... no thanks. I've used 96% of my bandwidth already, too!

Icons being hotlinked [Aug. 31st, 2006|02:47 pm]
Hotlinkers can't hide forever...

century is hotlinking icons in their tutorial index. I found out because they were hotlinking images from MY tut index that I host on my own site. 

There are imageshack and tinypic accounts being hotlinked. They are also hotlinking  curious_icons LJ pic storage, and photobucket accounts are being linked for dawn_icons, chanhay, reinidei, eternally_dreaming, moodthemes_inc, and lj_bases. (I don't know if those are all LJ folks, but those are the names on the photobucket accounts.)

[mood |annoyedannoyed]

Url of site doing the hotlinking: http://xlacklusterx.livejournal.com/ & her MYSPACE
Posts to the hotlinked items:
What is being hotlinked: Advent Children, HP, Princess Tutu
Who (if anyone) you know is being hotlinked there: Oh man ... I remember SEEING the icons in past pimp posts and such to various communities for that specific fandom but the username slips my mind; I remember the styles and all, seeing them, but aieee... usernames aren't coming to me.

Anything else you feel is important: She has a few of my own icons and when asked for credit, she refused; just passing this along since mine have also been taken, sigh. :/

[edit] Actually ... she's gone and uploaded them to her own photobucket it seems however she is still "stealing" a bunch of icons; if this still counts, let me know, and if not I can delete this post. 8D
