    Screwing VS

    So I'm not very happy with Vertical Scope. My build thread on Pirate is probably not really helping them, but it's still a thorn in my side that it's there. All the pics are from Supermotors. If I would delete those pics, I suppose the thread would be useless. (Nobody wants to only read a build thread) But I have those same pics linked here. Is there some way I can stop a VS site from getting those pics? Any other ideas?

    austin had it setup so that the board grabbed linked photos and hosted them here I thought.

    so if you delete them from supermotors they may still appear here.
    You won't be able to only deny the hotlinking from VS, as you can't control that.

      you mean they are hosted someplace else and you have just posted links to them on PBB and IBB?

      if so just change the name of the pic on the server, it will break the links on PBB and you can update the build here with the new file name

        That is in the plans but not done yet

          probably the best solution then.

              this is excellent. but pair it with austin's file name changes and you can make the first image on the page just explain that the current build thread/finish is on irate4x4.

                if you have them hosted, you could simply change the name of the folder they are in, and then update the name of the folder here on IBB. Austin might even be able to run a script to batch re-name your photo links. Maybe send him some beer and ask

                I like the idea of running a script and watermarking the photos though

                  I'm pretty certain Pirate is now saving and hosting the embedded content. I normally host everything on Imgur and I checked an old post of mine and it showed everything as being attachments.

                    mine are still live hosted from my links. But nobody ever goes into the Willys section anyway, so it's probably last on their list to host

                      There's a willys section?

                        With the limit of seven edits per 10 days good luck deleting much of anything. And even those edits I don’t seem to work most of the time

                            Not that it will help directly with this problem, but I edited my first post in my build thread over there and replied to it as well with the following, then used a link shortener to redirect to my build thread here.
