Discourse avatar's usage policy


(Lewis Wright) #1

Hi there, apologies if this information is already publicly accessible, I did do some research but couldn’t find anything.

I was wondering what the usage policy was for hotlinking discourse’s avatar service? We’d like to use it in a few of our admin systems, but they’re not built on the discourse platform. The hits this would add would be miniscule compared to the kind of traffic you no-doubt already receive, but it’s only fair that I seek permission.

Lewis.

Thanks for asking!

We would prefer that avatars.discourse.org only be used in connection with Discourse, in some capacity.

Fair enough, thanks for your quick response.

Just an addendum: the code for the avatars service we run is open source and available from Github, so if you wanted to spin up one of your own, it’s easy to do.
