    What link are you trying to send?
    Sounds like the link you are trying to send is no longer viewable - gone or maybe moved.

    Ok leave the url tag off of it - like Dr1ver pointed out.

    The url tag is if you want to make like words say a hyperlink like this:
    lumines downgrader

    Upload your image to a site like image shack or photobucket.

    They usually give you the img tag w/ the url in it to display the image on a message board - you just need to make the IMG tag lower case.

    Example (remove asterisks):
    [*img]http://i24.photobucket.com/albums/c27/binkie7/stuff1/atom.gif[*/img]

    Looks like this:

    [​IMG]

    Oh and moving this thread to a more appropriate forum :)
