    Hello

    I was posting ony my BST just saw it first time ever not before BHW changes:
    Your BST contains externally hosted images.

    We currently only allow images hosted at:
    imageshack.us

    Please upload your images to imageshack.us and then use their forum code to add them into your thread.


    Any solid reason behind it?

    Well i would think it is to prevent viruses or such? maybe getting site flagged in google. That have happened sometimes. i really doubt no one selling would put virus on their site but incase they get hacked.

    Yeah I too noticed it not just in BST but also on the Black Hat SEO sub-forum. It'd be nice if they can include imgur.com also to the allowed image hosting sites.

    I am pretty sure that's because Imageshack keeps the images you upload forever.

    This is because seller may change the service offer by just editing the image and reuploading to it's server.

    I did this once, I had to edit some contact info on my BST and realized it's possible to change more than that, I was prepared to report that to mods but too good - they are already on it.

    Yeah I raised this question already in DD's thread in the lounge about the new market place being live, I hope they add in other image sources tbh as imageshack sucks, imgur would be ideal.
