The new policy will go into affect Monday and we are starting out with the following.

Imageshack
Imgur
Photobucket
Tinypic

We might add others in the future but we want to keep to the more popular and safer sites.

Hey Howard,

It appears that this policy also affects posting pictures in a post, not just the avatar or signature.

I tried to post an image from flikr like this:
[img]...http://www.flickr.com/photos/xorsyst/3627681312/...[/img]

and I received the message:

'Please select images from allowed sites'

Yeah, we can't even post pictures in a post now. You have to upload every single thing you try to post, which can be a hassle if you just want to share a simple picture like

On a forum or whatever.

Gonna be tough for people to even make game threads now, since they'll have to upload every single picture of any player. Couldn't we at least make an exception for images off sites like espn, nba, yahoo, etc? Major sites?

It's to enhance the security of RealGM. There's been a history of images from some sites triggering viruses. To avoid this, the admins are narrowing the list of available hosting sites. While it may be a hassle to upload pictures to Imageshack or another applicable site, it's a lot better than possibly getting a virus.

I believe this has been fixed.

Klomp says the other best. Users thought they had viruses when they did not because of bad sites and we flat out wanted to stop this.
