Posting your /screenshots

Little advice for posting and hosting screenshots. Dont link them to the other hosts unless they are thumbnails. This saves loading time for things that nobody will click (you would think that anyway.)

Copy the URL (the bar at the top where you type www.blablabla.com etc etc just for those of you who didn't know that Razz )

Giving you this:
