Well, I don't think so, because I only have the thumbnails on the site. The pics are on Photobucket. So if someone was hotlinking that would mess up Photobucket, yes?

Hmmm. I don't know a thing about computers or bandwith or anything like that, so I wish I could help more. I just know so many sites I visit tend to go down in the second half of the month.

If you have true thumbnails(that increase in size when you click them) they are also on your site not just photobucket.

It is amazing what people will steal bandwith for. My ultimate squick happened when several wolf photos I used for avatars were instead used by two charming groups. Group A's members thought they were real life werewolves and Group B were furries.

Easy fix on the bandwith stealing is to rename you pictures often and with a tag that is not easily found on google. After my werecreature and furry experiences I have taken to every so often changing a letter on my gif and jpg names.

But the thumbnails link to the photobucket images. I haven't loaded the larger versions onto the website at all.

Interesting method of foiling hotlinking. :~)
