Don't Hotlink!


Tohea is a text-based roleplaying game centered around the popular show and game, Pokémon.  I only know this because a Tohea forum has been hotlinking to one of my images for some time now.  Hotlinking is not very nice, as I absorb the bandwidth cost every time someone loads a page in that damn forum, and judging by the stats that's a whole lotta hits.

Instead of just blocking the hotlink, I decided to have a little fun with the RPG crowd.  I replaced the picture of a lightning bolt with an image that reads "Toronto Mike sez Don't Hotlink!"

Here's a screen cap of their forum as it looks right now.  Click the image to see it full sized.
