    Many of our members post images that are hosted on other hosting sites. Clicking on a thumnail image will take you away from the Fashion Spot and lead you to a larger and easier to see image that is housed elsewhere. However, these sites often have very graphic porn ads and sometimes you are forced to see them in order to get to the image you are trying to see.

    If you happen to come across pornography when you click on images, please use the "Report Post" feature to alert the moderators and they will delete the post.

    A good popup blocker is effective against some of the offensive ads, but not all.

    If you are easily offended and wish to avoid seeing such images, please do not click on thumbnails.

    Or, you may check where the image is hosted, before clicking on the thumbnail and determine the likelyhood of it being "safe" or not. To do this you must look at the "properties" of the image and that will show you the address where it's hosted.

    Usually (but not always) Safe:

    thefashionspot.com
    fashionpix.org
    imageshack.com
    photobucket.com
    tinypics.com
    flickr.com
    most magazine sites, blogs, etc.

    Worst offenders:

    ImageVenue.com
    ImageBam.com
    ImageHave.com





    If you are a member who posts pictures, you can help us mitigate this problem.

    You have some free space here, at tFS to use to host your pictures. Just use the attachement feature (the little paper clip icon). However, once that runs out, you must either upgrade your account or host your images somewhere else to post here (the little photo icon).

    Please host your images on a porn free site, if possible. Be aware that most "porn free" hosting sites do not allow any nudity, real, partial or even implied, so some images must be taken to a nudity allowed/adult hosting site, but please host everything else on a porn free site.


    For help with finding a good popup blocker or to ask about which site is good to host images on, there is a discussion going on here.

    We have announced that we are banning the use of ImageBam, ImageVenue and ImageHaven to host members' pictures. Please see the announcement, here.
