You will be added to Vixen's Wall of Shame Page. Spyware can be a good thing. There are several sites and forums on the net, that still have illegal bandwidth stealing direct image links to Vixen's site, some dating back to 2001. I suggest if you do not want to be placed on the Wall of Shame forever, you cease all activities of graphic stealing or bandwidth theft. As you've seen, the image linking theft no longer works, so to prevent the "warning sign" appearing on your site or forum, you should remove all bandwidth stealing links now. Some of these images were made for this forum only, and copyright of MetalVixen' Dungeon. Those of you with "closed" forums who think we can't get in and see what youre doing, once you've stolen a graphic we can go into that forum anyway via your IP, or the graphic location so youre not hiding behind a closed forum. If you know MV, you know she's not a vengeful or selfish person. If there's something you want to borrow, just email and ask. Instead of stealing, you should just join us, participate, and add your obvious interest in Rock and Metal here.

Some people just aren't born with the God given common sense that the general dog is born with.

True. Good point.

I know there are people who steal width for EPay, but the dude that was stolen from turned the tables on him by switching around the pictures. Hell if I wish I could do that.

Ed you would have laughed your ass off then, if you could have seen the graphics that MV's forum creator exchanged out for the ones linked. Instead of the graphic they stole/illegally linked there were BIG Yellow Signs
that said something like:

I AM A THIEF! I STEAL BANDWIDTH FROM METALGYPSY.COM

MV didn't know about it until after the forum creator did it (the genius!). Those big yellow signs were all over several forums illegally linking and ripping bandwidth. The owners had to go to every post and remove them manually. When MV told me about it she was laughing so hard she cried. Several people learned real fast not to do that anymore. One really hurt her though, she claimed to be a friend that wasn't online much anymore, and was using MV's bandwidth for almost every image on her forum. Stole lots of graphics and concepts from MV to make her own website. Pathetic when you have to steal from a friend right? Unfortunately since Vixen leaves this forum open for anyone to register, they now come in and just copy them and load them to another server to use. But she has made a Wall of Shame page for them to be publicly listed and shamed. I hope I can get it up for her soon. This web site stuff isn't easy to me.

MV, hiya!
I know i have been MIA for such a long time, and i apologize.
I found yet another WASP head, and told her about this place, as she'd never heard anything from the DFTW cd, and thought that you may have a few tunes in the jukebox she could listen to while waiting for her hometown record store to special order the disk for her.
Imagine my surprise and dissappointment to dicover that the jukebox wasn't here anymore, ;0( What happened to it, and does this have anything to do with those that chose to steal the graphics from our forum?
I really love this place, and even tho i haven't posted in ages, i still come in to listen to the jukebox while surfing. It totally sux that it's gone, ;0( Will it be coming back online anytime soon?
Well, i hope that this finds everyone well and happy. Please take care, and as always,
Blessed Be!

The jukeboxes have always been here, but you can't see the link to them unless you're logged into the forum.

By the way, in case anyone is wondering, I've set up the seasonal Christmas theme as the default. (Some of the Christmas images look weird when viewed in the other themes) You will automatically go back to your chosen theme after the holidays.

Sarah asked me to set it up this way last Christmas, so in her absence, I'm doing it the same way this year.

Happy Holidays!
