Restricting off site allowed?

    I was wondering is redirecting an image to another site allowed? I'd be interested redirecting images with a warning of a kink people on my watch list probably don't want to see to another site

    I can't see anything in the site documentation that says you can't do this, though you can just set it to the adult setting on the site and change the thumbnail to have a warning template on it, that way users actually have to click in to view the content rather than seeing it via the thumbnail system first.

    But, depending on the nature of this "kink", it would be worth noting, that if one site will allow it to be hosted, it may go against FA's rules for forbidden content and thus you wouldn't be able to link to it from FA. So it would be wise to seek clarification from a member of staff (Such as SSJ3Mewtwo or Quoting_Mungo) of if it is acceptable to link externally to a submission containing "x" kink etc, before actually doing so.

    In most cases it is allowed to link to offsite images, with a few caveats:
    - Image should not be rated higher than the submission on FA
    - Image should not contain content that is not permitted on FA (e.g. "cub" porn, photomorphs with genitalia, etc.)
    - Image should not be defamatory etc. towards another person

    All of that basically falls under COC 1.9 and 1.10 and can mostly be summed up as "don't use links to try to get around site rules".
