Don't hotlink unless you were given permission or it is being hosted by an image host.

That's probably because the server you hotlinked the images from doesn't allow hotlinking or (remote linking). So upload the PNG images to a sever that does or simply to your forum or hotlink from photobucket. Photobucket allows and promotes hotlinking. Copy the "direct Link" from photobucket and paste it into rank image slot on your forum.

I recommend going with the FM image host. They will never be deleted and don't have to rely on another party to host your images.

The reason I don't like https://servimg.com/ is because the server is not as fast as photobucket. So consequently if you change your images to photobucket the forum loads faster. I did that years ago and was completely successful doing it.

Also, at photobucket you don't have to worry about images being deleted as you suggested, if they are not pornographic they won't be deleted. I doubt very seriously web buttons fit that category.

Well there was a time and have been times where you exceed the daily bandwidth on PB also they did have a down time for a day and a half on one of my forums which caused everything to say blah blah PB and made my forum ugly.

Personal preference, you decide. By the way I use my own website to host photos.

I've seen more down-time with https://servimg.com/ than PB in the past 3 years. In fact, I haven't seen PB down in 3 years, The daily bandwidth is a non-issue for most forums because there simply isn't enough members on most forums to exceed the daily bandwidth. But that is something I never concern myself with because I have a paid account and have unlimited bandwidth. And like you I have my own website server I host images on.
