    I notice that recently some people are using this forum to redirect to other sites for downloading their themes. If you are not going to upload these themes here, please stop this.

    So, sharing a theme is only welcome if you upload your theme? I didn't see that in the forum rules. I'd be reluctant to upload my themes to someone else's web space.

    If you are reluctant to share your themes with the users on this forum, then you may very well be in the wrong forum to begin with. If you think this is a forum for advertising your own site, then you are definitely in the wrong place.

    Oh, and just maybe the people whose icons you took from sites such as deviantart might be reluctant to have their icons hosted on your site. Think about it. This is NOT your original work. You took it from others and are hosting it on your site. So your excuse does not apply.

    I get what you're saying Armadillo, but it's not like you have to register or sign up to download his themes. What he's doing is no worse than using rapidshare or some other free webhosting site.

    Not quite. He only provided a link to his site. Had a given a direct download link to the themes, I would not have complained. Obviously, he wants to have people visit his site. That is fine, but he could have posted direct links and asked people to visit his site. As it stands, the post can be considered a huge banner post.

    Imagine this to become the rule. Then the forum would essentially become a link hub.

    armadillo is right.
    If you must host the files on your own site, you need to direct link to it.
    Other wise, it is just a "spam" post.

    Yes. Posting content/screenshots on our site with no actual downloadable content is just spamming our board. Please either post your content here, with a link to the original source in your sig or the post if its not every post, or find another way to advertise your site.

    We are not a free bulletin board. Thanks for your understanding.

    But you'd have no issues using their success as a board as free advertising for yours?

    I should be listed in the rules to avoid this kind of thing I actually read them.

    I changed the links above to include a direct link to the post...feedback or a different link?

    When I said:

    What I meant was uploading my themes to your web space would be using your bandwidth to host my files. I would not feel right about that without explicit permission.

    I have changed the links above. Please change the rules and I will be glad to fix it up as you want. Quite honestly, I was just being lazy with my initial link since it was late and I seem to have stepped on a nerve.

    I would consider this standard board netiquette. But if it requires a rule, then may be that should go into the Rules section.

    That's BS. Come on. The board invites uploads. What do you need? A special invitation?

    You really think that as long as something is not explicitly discouraged, you are free to do as you please? Who are you? If someone spams your board, I guess it's okay, since you don't have a rule against it?

    While I appreciate your fixing the OP, I don't appreciate your attitude and the justification. A simple sorry and here's the fix would have been perfect.

    No problem. For the future, I will adjust the rules, but the way we work is we love folk submitting new skins, and just ask that you upload here as well if you are going to announce them here. If you do not want to, you're definitely not required to post them here, that's just standard etiquette. Otherwise it comes across as simply using the board as advertising. May not have been your intention at all, I understand.

    Thanks, please adjust accordingly and lets move on.
