    so you don't log in to view ?




    i registered under sequitur yesterday, pmed the guy 'sammyboyfor'.

    the point is he can disable hotlinking to the domain if you own it...

    i suggest that maybe darren can aid in pm-ing sammyboy and disable *.clubsnap.* or something.... can't work for pbase though... worth a try guys ?


    for those who pmed asking for the sammyboy thread... search for nick 'Virgin Lover'

    anyway he's unrepentant.

    i know there should be a disable hotlinking, so that the linked picture outside of this forum will just display whatever the forum owner places !! hope that will help.

    As for leeching the photos, i think thats really disgusting, owners of the photos places them here for comments and sharing it with other photography-lovers, but ended up for webby like Sggirls ? Eekk....

    Lets stand together and beat them off the forum !! if possible, any lawyers here ?

    ohz, disabling Right-click i believe will turn off many of our club members, don't you guys agree ? disabling the hotlinking system is better (thats what i think lahz...)

    You can probably flood their websites with pictures of birds, macros flowers, scenaries and plants... since they allow hot linking... maybe you can use their server space! Hahaha!


    I would like to see the look on their member's faces when one day they open up their site and see something other than girls over there. Hahaha!

    Please note that we can only control hotlinking if the images are stored within the ClubSNAP domains (clubsnap.org/.com/.net/.com.sg) and we cannot help you if your image is hosted elsewhere (eg pbase, photobucket, your own domain )

    This also does not address the ability of the leecher to *download* the picture and store it on his/her own server/image storage elsewhere.
    Update: Hotlinking outside of ClubSNAP's domains has been disabled.

    Although I am not much of a computer bloke, I think this is brilliant! Flood their website till they cry!

    On the other hand, I have seen websites where the pictures come out in a separate window that can only be viewed, but not printed to hard copy. Is this a possible viable solution to prevent leeching?

    That is flash (I think), it works exactly what u described, but it is slower to view.

    yaya, good ideas...find out who these people are and post their mothers, sisters, friends and daughters photos there and see how the member's faces look when they open their pages and see naked pics of their relatives or friends...

    why can't they leave us alone?

    This character may not be a registered CS user, but just browsing. If you guys are serious in putting a stop to this, we should infiltrate Sammyboy's forum and try to get to know the people who leech the photos without telling them who we are. Meet up with them outside somewhere on the pretext of some other purpose, like going to bars and massage parlours...all those kind of activities I'm sure some of them indulge in, and.... 'inform' them of their mischief. How you 'inform' them is up to you of course. Serving them a lawyer's notice, or perhaps some other ways....

    Basically, make an example of a few of them. That's how the law works. Deterrence.

    Actually, with hotlinking disabled, they could still download the pic, place it on another server and show it on their forums.

    well, the mods have done all the can to help. the rest is up to us to protect our own pics. hmmm... time to go and buy a flash mx dummy book to learn flash mx.

    no point berating at the people on sammyboy becos at the end of the day, nothing will change. the onus is on us to take care of our property and our models' privacy.

    You can try this Free flash gallery viewer.
    You need to specify the links in the XML. (Quite time consuming)

    http://www.airtightinteractive.com/simpleviewer/

    and there many more out there...

    But then again, it will still be leeched using Screen Capture.

    Cheers!

    The site looks local and definitely more of a porno site. If this is the case, couldn't it be reported to the authority to shut it down? Since copyright pictures have been lifted, couldn't we do something legally?
    This cannot be condone and has to be hit hard.

    Its really disgusting to have such site locally and worse, to have the existance of such operators ..

    Sammyboy's site is not hosted locally, otherwise it would have been shut down ages ago.

    You can't stop people from viewing/copying. Using flash also no use. i can just press the "Print Screen" key on my keyboard and paste the pic in Microsoft Paint, crop it, save and upload to another server.

    Sad to hear of such things happening.

    Like they said. If you don't want it to be stolen, don't post it online. Want to view? Just maybe have some lim-teh / kopi session @ SEED or something to sit down and view it over a nice cuppa.
