Hi Folks, Listen up members, when pictures are "hotlinked" from sites like Photobucket...etc, our server has to go to their server to get the picture. The hand-shake (cookie) is made, and then so is the connection to GP. This leaves us vunerable to web searches, not to mention the administration from those sites. We do not know if those site(s) policies allow for marijuana pictures to be posted. If their server(s) got busted, and were ultimately seized...that could put us at risk. Your security is very important to us, and that is a risk we are not willing to take here at GreenPassion lightly. So...based on the above security issues, I ask you to host your pictures here at GreenPassion. I am not going to "force" you to follow this, but it is highly suggested for you to follow this suggestion. Another reason for hosting your pictures here is we have several improvements with regards to the handling of pictures, but these improvements will only work, when the picture is hosted here. Peace :I agree:
