Default Are we allowed to hotlink?

Anybody who can answer, I wanted to ask, do you let people hotlink to your site?
I'll probably get a no, but I had to ask, since my host won't give me a lot of space, so just to save some I was asking if I can hotlink to images at PE2K.

I'm not one hundred percent sure what hot-linking is but if it means what I think it means, then I don't believe you can. Something about consuming bandwidth. However you can probably save them to you pc and upload them through photobucket or some other uploading site, and then link to that image.

But like I said I'm not one-hundred percent sure if hot-linking is what I think it is.

I think you probably got what it is, hotlinking means that images that I want on my site are actually on PE2K's server and I show them on my site, so actually using PE2K's bandwidth.

If you mean get images from Pe2K on your website maybe you should get permission and copy and paste. Then again, I'm still not 100% sure what hotlink is.

A lot of sites don't allow hotlinking, because as Nick said: it basically steals the other websites bandwidth.
Photobucket, Imageshack and Tinypic are there for a reason, so it would be better just to use them.

I'm sure I've seen something about not being allowed to hotlink on the PE2k site anyway.

Thanks then, I'll have to upload it all now -_-

Willdudebotdood, most images on PE2K are not copyrighted to Ryan, and here I mean Sprites and in game images, so I wouldn't get permission, and well, you dodn't actually understand what I asked.

This can be closed, unless someone wants to say that I can hotlink, if not no further discussion.
