Now we have new forum software, it's time for a new Random Image Thread. The main difference being that because the forum software will automatically resize your images, you don't need to use spoiler tags for anything over 1280 pixels wide.

The old thread has been archived, you can see it here.

THE RULES


  • Do not post complaining that there is no image in this post
  • Do NOT use spoiler tags - They're not required any more
  • No hotlinking
  • No nudity, adult or offensive material
  • No images with swearing
  • No watermarks or URLs for sites containing content that wouldn't be postable here. If you link or advertise a site in this thread even if it is on an otherwise suitable image, you will be dealt with as if you had posted what you have linked to.
  • No requesting or offering non-postable items via email
  • No quoting of images
  • No moving images
  • IF YOU POST AT ALL YOU MUST POST A RANDOM IMAGE
  • No images containing a certain bear that gets posted incessantly even though it was unfunny the first time and boring the second
HOTLINKING IS NOT PERMITTED. REPEAT OFFENDERS WILL BE SUSPENDED.

Though not a rule, please at least try to refrain from posting duplicates.


Keep it tasteful and within the boundaries set out above, and there's no reason this thread shouldn't stay indefinitely. The rules above are non-negotiable.

If anyone has any questions regarding the above or a prospective post please contact the mod team off the forum.

Lastly, please help us with trying to keep this thread under control. It doesn't just make our lives easier, it shows us that the vast majority want the thread and are able to behave.

For your information:

Werewolf said:
"Hotlinking", directly linking to images hosted on other sites that are not expressly for that purpose (such as imageshack etc).
This is because:
1: It's considered rude.
2: Some site owners get quite upset about it.
2A: Some sites have measures in place that replace the hotlinked image with something very unpleasant if the person viewing it doesn't have a suitable cookie showing they have been to the site the image is from.

It's 2 and 2A that have us implimenting the no hotlinking rule, in the former case to try to avoid problems for other sites, and in the latter as we will suspend people if the image displayed is unsuitable for the forums, even if it wasn't their intent (users are responsible for making sure stuff they post on here falls within the rules).

It's amazing to realise that all the matter in the Universe we can see, the planets, stars galaxies etc. is only 4% of the matter in our Universe. The rest is either Dark Matter or Dark Energy.

To think we may have evidence of gravitational waves, is a seriously big deal:

p.s. I've reuploaded a picture from Wikipedia. Perhaps we can have clarification as to whether hotlinking from Wiki is allowed?
