    Longevity of images posted from a url ?


    When using the "from url" option for inserting images:

    Click image for larger version

    For example, I inserted the image below from a url.
    And checked the box to reference it locally.

    Will it be here forever or disappear if the url link no longer exists ?

    Click image for larger version

    Thank you.

    Yeah if you tick that box a copy of the image you have linked will be downloaded and served from our servers instead of a remote site, this ensures the image stays as long as our site and doesn't rely on a 3rd part site to load.

...in the News subforum. Seriously, it's getting ridiculous. Why is it that in the Windows H8 Forums, there are LITERALLY at least four new postings each and every day whereas Windows 7 gets like three things posted per week? And what's worse, people are posting things there that isn't EVEN NEWS...
