We have had more than one thread recently kick up virus warnings for our members, and the culprits have without exception been images. Therefore, we must ask for the sanity of the staff and the safety of our members' computers that any images that our members choose to display on Elliquiy be uploaded to the wiki before being added to any Elliquiy threads.

We will not be requiring this retroactively (unless a particular link brings up a virus warning) but we will be asking you to do so going forward. If you're not sure how to do this, there is a rather helpful tutorial here.

Edit by Vekseid: Any image hotlinking can cause this, if the target site gets compromised. So jpegs and pngs can also trigger the ' includes content from which is known...' warning.
