I need to talk with Roolet, but as things stand now, I'm going to be killing sluggypics in the next few weeks. I have neither the time nor resources to adequetly manage that site, and in many ways I feel the need for the site has waned from it's initial conception. Photo hosting is now readily available @ many public websites such as photobucket, etc. and Few people use Sluggypics to post photos of themselves anymore...and the many hacks have driven me to end it.

bleh.

Who's roolet?

... oh, wait, that's me.

We're working on transferring it over. I'll post the new domain for it as soon as the transfer is finished. Gimme a day or so to make sure it's all in place and security upgrades are completed. I'll try and keep all existing ranks as they are.

*BUMP*

Okay, I finished the move and upgraded *EVERYTHING*. Old user accounts should still work. Everyone who was a mod/admin is still a mod/admin except naraht, who was an admin but didn't wanna be one anymore, so now he's a mod.

New site is http://sluggypics.cutefuzzy.net.

Thanks for your patience over the past few days while the old site has been locked.

Yay!

Too bad I started using my DevArt account to host stuff for my RPGs.

And too bad I followed suit! Oh well... I'd been meaning to get a Dev Art account for a while anyway.

Good to have you back SMM, and thanks for fixing things up, the both of you!

Yeah, sluggypics stayed totally inaccessible for months so it is totally understandable that y'all have gone and paid for space elsewhere.

Those of you with large personal albums especially, totally understandable and probably favorable since we still only allow inline linking to a few sites.

I thought I should take some time to give a huge THANK YOU to Naraht for hosting Sluggypics over the past couple of years. He's been totally great about giving us Sluggites a free and easy way to store photos and art and other creative things, and he's always been very responsive to adding or fixing things whenever we've asked. Thanks, Naraht.

And of course, another huge THANK YOU to SMM for volunteering to take on and host Sluggypics now, not to mention the fact that she and a few other Sluggites took a lot of personal time and effort adding back all the pictures and recoding all their data one-by-one. You guys rock.

Krail, everything was moved over, including personal galleries. They're called "User Galleries" on the new setup but all your stuff should be there... I know because Kitten, whymy, Vee and I downloaded it from the old site, and then I uploaded it to the new site and copied and pasted all of the titles and descriptions for all 2001 photos.

If you would like to save your User gallery to your hard drive, you can do so using the new gallery's zip download feature. Whee.

Actually, DevArt is free, as long as you don't mind banners and such. Since I basically use it as hosting for pictures I need to show players down in FRPG, I don't care about all that.

Thanks for SluggyPics for so long though. I used it when I needed it.

Just a brief update in case y'all were wondering... Vee brought it to my attention that she couldn't upload to the public galleries, only to her private one, so I went in and checked... sure enough, I'd forgotten to set the shared galleries so that members could upload! Stupid me. I fixed that now.
