Wasn't sure where to post this question. I posted in the "Help Wanted" forum, and my link to my game screenshot is not working, even though the URL for the <img> tag is correct. http://www.gamedev.net/community/forums/topic.asp?topic_id=424525 Here is the URL to the image: http://knowlton4.tripod.com/rsc.GIF

It's anti-hotlinking code - they check the HTTP referrer to ensure that you don't link to the image so you can see it away from the Tripod page. Viewing the image by going straight to the link won't send any HTTP referrer, so it appears.

As a quick workaround, use TinyPic to host your image. There are other image hosts (such as MSN Groups) that have better management options that also permit hotlinking.
