    So I was checking the stats for my image hosting account, and I noticed a particular site has been hotlinking all the images I used in the Wii emulator sticky.
    A bit of googling and it turns out they are being used on the so called "Ultimate wii emulator archive." Hmm...
    The poster didn't ask if they could link to the images and they didn't even credit gbatemp as a source. [​IMG]
    What makes it worse is that the bandwidth/thread thief is also a 'temper. Son I am disappoint. [​IMG]

    TL;DR - Hotlink payback was inevitable [​IMG]

    UPDATE: A day an a half later it was noticed but the lazy son of a gun can't even be bothered to sort it yet:
    lol I couldn't help myself...

    2ND UPDATE: Still not fixed as of March 31 [​IMG] Any requests?
    3RD UPDATE: Lol fixed eventually on April 2.

    The links I swapped were all .png so I couldn't use my army of oversized animated gifs this time.
    I read their forum rules and they are supposedly kid friendly so I held back on the nasty prons (I'm nice, honest!)
    I'm glad I've generated some lulz before any sign of a white knight! Thanks guys.
    GBATEMP FO' LIFE BITCHES!

    EDIT: @naglaro00 - the site's name is in the top left of pic. I just checked and they haven't noticed yet - nearly 24 hours lol

    One post in the introduction forum and you can see everything except the download links. I only signed up to admire/screencap my handiwork after google let me in on their secret.

    Best payback ever. Maybe you want to use a javascript handler that disables right-clicking, or disables hotlinking... Most people are not good with HTML or JS anyways.

    I put in that sentence on purpose, most people who make those guides are not that good with HTML themselves, so there's little chance that they use greasemonkey, righttoclick or something similar. If they were, they wouldn't rip all the images and they would just ask the owner for permission.

    I remember I once ripped those Pokémon Trading Card images from the official website. (right-click disabled)
    No idea how I did that, as it was a couple years ago.
