Well I was accused of stealing people's ideas and information (which i didn't) but it didn't take long for the accuser's to actually do it.

My post last night:http://66.79.166.130/~saablink/TSL/saabforum/viewtopic.php?t=320 It points to a document I created last night.

Saabcentral moderator post today: http://www.saabcentral.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=180368&highlight=#180368

Oh well its OK by me because I don't OWN the information anyway. I should change the link and point it to www.saablink.net. But I'm not a prick!

Personally I think it's cool that they copy text from here, BUT if they start to IMG link to pictures I would stop it immediately as that would cost bandwidth and bandwidth is money. One way to do this is to have a refer check when pictures are loaded so that if a picture from here is loaded anywhere else you would get the TSL logo instead. To do this the pictures uploaded here must be stored in a binary format in the SQL server or let a include file display and check before loading the image.

Here is one way to block it on a Apache server, the rewrite module needs to be compailed together with webserver and then add this to the htaccess file. Let me know if you need help.

Code:
Code:RewriteEngine on 
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^$ 
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http://(www\.)?saablink.net/.*$ [NC] 
RewriteRule \.(gif|jpg)$ http://www.saablink.net/tsl_logo.gif[R,L]

Oh I don't mind them copying. As mbodo said, its helping others out and thats the purpose of the document. SC just needs to practice what they preach or stop preaching.

Thanks for the idea CS. I don't think it will get bad enough to start having bandwith problems, but if so, Ill use that code ;)

Is this the new Saabcentral? Seems since they've cracked down on chatting in the forums, many people have been around less and less...made my way here from a link by cswerin on Saabcentral (which will probably be deleted as soon as the mods come across it), and noticed a lot of familiar faces here...

There has been quite a few members coming from SC, but its purely on an individual basis. We're not recruiting from there or trying to take people away from SC...there's no competition between us, but it just seems to be happening :roll:

Of course I am glad to have all the new members, and I hope the word is spread :)

Hi cbl, welcome. This is just an alternative to SC. try it and decide for yourself.

I have to admit that the post on SC was a little publicity stunt for TSL, and it did help out a little (11 new users) but the thread wont last for long I guess :roll:

Going to finish my flash emulator today, I only need to find a way to fix the camera.
