Is hotlinking still forbidden? I pretty much am in the habit of putting the images on a sharing site now anyway though.

Yep. All images in the gif thread, or picture association thread must be hosted on a sharing site.

I never understood the obsession with hotlinking, don't most hosters provide unlimited bandwith nowadays anyway?

You mean every image on the forum, like I just posted one in the recently bought games topic but I put it on a hosting site.

I just use my own judgement when linking images. If the site allows it and is big enough, it shouldn't be an issue. If it's some low tier monstrosity, I just upload it so it won't end up broken down the road.
