changes in posting hwbot scores on forums

Up till now, the a bot scanning your forum for new results would try to find image links in your post and interprete them as a screenshot of your benchmark result. This failed often, as the image might as well represent your signature or avatar, or be attached to the post using the forum software.

If the bot finds an image hosted on either imageshack or photobucket, and it’s not in the signature, it will use it as a verification image. If it finds multiple, it will use the first found. If it finds a imageshack thumbnail, it will use the original one. If you attach screenshots to your post using the forum functionality, the bot will not recognize it as a screenshot.
If you encounter any problems with this change or want an additional image hosting website added, please let us know in the forums.
