    I've viewed several game forums, and when people post pictures in their posts, I cannot see them. It's just a little white box with a big red X. Why's this?

    The pictures will, in this case, likely be held on a server, which may or may not be the server the forum is on.

    What the "X" is telling you, is that the picture that is linked to the post is not available.

    It could be the settings in your browser, or simply that they are indeed simply "not available"

    It can also be related to a slow internet acess (either end), where the browser gives up waiting for the pictures and times out.

    Can't be the last one...I have a cable connection. :D And by reading the posts, I can tell that the other people can view them...

    Do you need to be logged on to the forum before you get access to the pictures?

    Is it a firewall / NAT setting on your side?
