Images in your profile:
To read how you put a picture in your profile, we refer to the manual > profile  <.
You can also use a photo album in your profile. If you want to read more about this subject, please click: > photo album <.


Your diskspace:
Each account has 3 MB of storage for free. To create and manage your files, uploading and managing your images and create more storage space, we refer to the> manual <.

What is hotlinking and why is it harmful?
A website is hosted on a server. The owner of the website pays for an amount of storage. On top of: the server allows data traffic till a certain limit. If files are hotlinkt from one website to the other,  you create data traffic between your hotlinkt file and the file from the website, from where you have linkt your file.
Simply said, you use something and another pays for it. It's still theft!
Often funny pictures of a website are copied and pasted into a message on the group. Then you have established a hotlink. Hotlinking happens often, but is not allowed, unless the website allows you to hotlink. Think of Photobucket, Plaatjes-upload and others.
In case Omni-Chat receives a notification of a hotlink on a group or account,  this image will be removed immediately.
