Colorbars
Hey,
I'll make this public in case ppl want to access it to see the bars
I've made some color bars if anyone is interested. There's a Michael Shanks one and a Paul Gross one. I'm not exactly sure how to set this up - most of the other color bars I've seen have an addy to link to, but I can't work out how to do that without hotlinking, and hotlinking is bad mmkay?? So does anyone have any ideas how to do this?? Anyways, here they are, and I'll add them to my user info
too.
ETA: I've also found an SG-1 colorbar, and thanks to aizjanika's advice I've created a photobucket account so I can hotlink to my heart's content. If you're interested in any of these, just cut and paste the code in the scroll box (sorry about the background being black, I can't work out how to change it:-() If you want to use any of these, credit isn't necessary, but please leave a comment.

I also found a Stargate one that I DIDN'T MAKE but I am assured is in the public domain as no one seems to have claimed it. I'll put it up and link it here, because there's really no other blog to link it to, but I say again I DID NOT MAKE IT and I AIN'T claiming I did. And look Tyler, it even has Jonas:-D

I found a really nice Darren one too, but I followed the link and there's no reference to it on that person's LJ so I don't know how to ask permission to use it. I wonder if there's a Callum Keith Rennie one?? Or a Due South one??

Yes, when you share anything on LJ or put any picture (even your LJ banner) you should have it on PhotoBucket or some similar place that allows hotlinking. If your banner is uploaded to another webspace that doesn't allow hotlinking, *you* are hotlinking if you have it show upon LJ. Does that make sense? It doesn't matter whether you do it or someone else does it, it's still hotlinking.

When you upload stuff to share, you (generic) put it up on PhotoBucket so that you can share it (hotlink) it to your LiveJournal. If others want to use it in their journals, they shouldn't hotlink to *your* photobucket account. They should save it and put it on their own.

You could say "here enjoy" and let people hotlink to your photobucket account, but it's generally not acceptable to do that because even PhotoBucket has bandwidth limits. For you it may not matter, but in general if you had tons of people using all your stuff (banners, icons, etc.) and they were all hotlinking to *your* PhotoBucket account, then they would be using up your bandwidth.

Well, this is all my understanding of it, anyway. hehe
