    When people upload their pictures to OT Uploads (link at bottom of page), they're only kept on the server for a certain amount of time if I'm not mistaken. A red X means that the picture file couldn't be found on the server.

    Your host may not allow external linking on the pictures.

    OTUploads is no longer - so people use other, mostly unreliable, hosting for pictures or just link to their original locations.

    Since OT can have such high traffic it tends to knock some of these sites down every once in a while.

    Also, a lot of people suck at teh pics on here.

    Oh, hey, didn't notice that... I think I only used it once. I usually use DigitalPose, which is not bad except you can only upload JPEG's.
