When you see an image on THE INTERNET and you want to share it with us, please don't directly link to the image because that uses up the image host's bandwidth.

Instead, save the picture, go to www.imageshack.us, and upload it there. Imageshack gives you all the codes for thumbnails, too. So if you have a large picture, thumbnail it so you don't break the tables.

I have most of the old upload topic on my hard drive and it is not pretty. I don't want to see it used like that again.

In other words, no more spamming anime bullshit.

at the risk of the end of my life, is Imageshack like photobucket?
And are they interchangable?

Because the old forum had nearly 700mb worth of image uploads. The vast majority of the uploads were mech pictures, anime pictures, and other pictures each posted numerous times. Can't find your picture? Upload it again!

[grammar nazi]Is anime the only word of that post you read? [/grammar nazi]


It is quite possible that I just read that word only. Or it was maybe just an observation that one of first people to raise the subject on the forum was the one who claims to hate it the most.

Either way, it's provided mild amusement here.

Or maybe he has a legitimate gripe because most of the 700 megs of pictures uploaded were anime-related

NO ITS JUST A BASELESS HATE Mad Mad Mad Mad Mad

Actually he had been talking about the old upload forum for quite awhile now in IRC. It was 700mb, thats not just something you overlook. He probably wanted to see why it was 700mb, so he perused through the pictures.

!!

THEY WERE MAINLY ANIME! :O! Well then, it looks like his statement was founded on something real, unlike yours. He didn't just bring up anime out of the blue.

Thanks for fagging up this thread!

Any way to see what mine totalled in the end? I don't think I used it TOO much...

Anyway to get back what I DID upload? I don't think I have most of those pics anymore...

I cannot tell who uploaded what. All I can see is names like post-12-124567-imagename.jpg.

Also, I personally deleted a whole bunch of stuff. Like the fanart uploads that had nothing to do with SoA, aka 50% of it.
