Hosting platforms spammers?

Postby NonnoSte » 05 Mar 2015, 23:13

Does anyone know why if I try to post some pics through an image hosting site I got blocked by the anti-spam filter?
I tried with Tinypic, Photobucket, Imageshack and all of them are recognised as spammers and the post is not allowed through because of this.
What is anyone using to attach pics?

Thanks for any information or help coming.

Use the site's own attachment function.

I use photobucket without a problem. I open the picture I want to post in full-size in photobucket, then right-click and choose properties to get the link.

I then use the [img]link[/img] function on asrai to show it.

Hotlinking images like that is a burden for two servers instead of just one. That's why I've put limitations on it. It would also totally crash the layout of the site if we suddenly got an image that's 8000 pixels wide. So you can hotlink smaller images, but not fullsize.

Flickr also works without issue.

Yeah,
I used to do so with tinypic (I had some pics posted before), but now it's not working anymore.
I've tried with other image hosting platforms, but the issue remains.

I received the message to crop or resize the pics to have them narrower than 900 pixels, but even if they're of suitable dimensions, the anti-spammer goes on blocking the post.
I found it happens if I try to insert an external link from whichever site too.

EDIT: I couldn't upload images through the forum uploader either. This was the message i got:

Could not upload attachment to ./files/12399_d4f4ce585d9563be51e3607600617468.

Seems like a permission issue. Will check when I'm at my desk.

Froggy, would you mind sharing those messages with me?
As for the attachment error, it should now be fixed. It no longer gives an error message as far as I can see.
As for the link posting error, it should now be fixed. Some of my disable settings on the old anti-spam didn't save properly last time I fixed them.
