Alright then, if it's okay with everybody I'll make good on my promise and start drafting something up for this month's LP ROUNDUP post.

This is fun!

Do we have a streaming thread any more?

I was looking at Twitch and there's a "communities" option. Would there be any interest in making a "talking time" community so people would be able to join and then others could use it to find active talking time related streams? Is there already one of these I could join?

I could go ahead an make one if there's any interest. I don't know how effective communities are at driving viewers on twitch but I figure it couldn't hurt.

Do people like Hitbox/or whatever it is called now, or Twitch more? I might stop being a lazy ass and stream shit for certain games.

Also, maybe somebody should do a tutorial for the new OBS Studio, because I'm a untalented hack (I'M GIVING YOU THAT JOB BEAT HINT HINT).

Do folks know about It is a free image host with great features for LPers!

1. You can set it to retain your original filenames. Experimentation shows that if it needs to be 100% unchanged, then the names need to be at most 23 characters (not including the extension).

2. You can upload a batch of images all at once via drag and drop and then you get a single list of forum embed codes for all those images you just uploaded.

Point 2 is a game changer, you don't even need predictable filenames once you have that. Just paste that into a text file and start typing your commentary paragraphs around it.

They don't compress images, and the upload limits are generous when I researched it. No bandwidth limitations AFAIK.

I know Lady has provided a generous alternative, but it is worth making this better known. You may also find it more convenient besides.

Are there any downsides? I only found one: they don't let you create albums yet (and it's probably not coming soon either). I thought this was a major bummer until I realized you basically don't need them. Your "albums" can be a text file where you paste your BBC code from point 2 for safe keeping. And if you want to move images from on album to another, just move those URLs around into different sections of the file. That's way easier than a web interface!

CubeUpload does seem to work well, I just restored my Rad Gravity LP with it, since that was my shorter one it was good to test it with.

Only thing I dislike is that we can't create folders, which is a problem as I relied on folders at Photobucket since all my LP images had similar filenames across each one (001.png, 002.png etc). However, since it doesn't look like we need to verify email addresses I think I can just sign up for multiple accounts, one per LP, and organize them that way.

Actually editing the posts is, at least, simple if tedious thanks to the magic of a word editor with Find/Replace.

So with Rad Gravity back online I'll start working on the Goemon LPs soon, though they might take a bit since they're longer, but it should be done.

This won't help with literally every other photobucket image I've used on this forum over the years, but what can ya do?

EDIT: It took a bit of time, but the LPs for Goemon 2 and 3 are now fixed!
