I know I've never had Photobucket ever delete anything on me, or move it for that matter (although you will have to change the tags here if you put the image into a new folder over there), and I've been using it for a while now. Free too, assuming you can put up with some ads. Says it's only 99˘ to get rid of those though.

It's too bad I can't host the images directly onto the forum.

That's probably because they moved the pictures into a new folder while they were reorganizing and then forgot to redo the img tags on the fourms. In something like this thread, I don't think that would be a problem. The readers would certainly point it out if it did.

I think I've got a reasonable solution worked out, but it's gonna take a while.  I've gotta reupload all the images, and then go through and modify each page so that each image is linked correctly...which is a huge pain in the ass, since I've averaged an update every week for the past year, with about ~8 images per update.  So...about 416 or so links I've got to fix? gdi.

I think you can mass-upload images to postimage.org. That's what I use, and it does not delete things. I have pics from the beginning of my time at bay12 still up in their old threads.

Just make an imgur account and use it.

Imgur tends to drop images if they aren't accessed frequently enough though, doesn't it? Or does that not happen with an account?

I think that went away when they dropped their pro account options:

http://imgur.com/blog/2015/02/09/imgur-pro-for-everyone/


Even when that didn't exist I think the bar was incredibly low. It was something like 2 views every month or something stupid like that.

That said you can't ever really be sure about changes in policies.

I think (almost?) everything I've uploaded to imgur for my forum games is still up, and those images are 1) one to two years old, and 2) not exactly frequently viewed. It may well be safe, but then, I never uploaded as much as this story. (also, other image hosting sites aren't showing embedded images for me right now).

I've started uploading things to imgur, which is awful because it means I have to look at all my old art.

Did you know I didn't make separate left-right images for Misty when I started? I just flipped the sprite.  And half the time, she's not even wearing her backpack. I can only assume she takes it off and re-don's it repeatedly throughout the story.  Plus all of chapter 1 and half of chapter 2 is just me trying to nail down an art style.  It's so god damn awful.

But, it feels nice knowing I'm getting better at it.  Once I finish repairing all of the older pages (a tedious task) I'll finish up the next update and post it.  Sorry these past couple months have been so sparse, everyone.

That sounds like standard dwarven behavior actually.

Did you know that I take it for granted you'd "just flip the sprite"?  A generation ago the idea began as a cheap way to reduce effort.  Then it was a joke about cheap ways to reduce effort.  Then it achieved that rare status of "joke that's repeated so much that people take it as normal."

If you're using different sprites now, is there an update where I can compare the two easily?

You can see it with the little side-ponytail thingamabob she wears.

Oh god that reminds me I was fiddling around with some of the tweaks I had done to get bearded elves ([Oprah]You get a beard, you get a beard, everyone gets a beard![/Oprah]) and I didn't like the styles it gave me so I went in to tweak them with gm-editor trying to remove the neatly combed mustache/beard for double braids and somehow ended up with:

...his very long moustache is tied in a pony tail? What? How the? Is it just sticking out from under his nose or is it pulled back around the sides of his head to the back? Maybe over the top? Why is that even an option?
