WHY HAPPENING?

So, I posted before when I found out in July that Photobucket made it so that users have to pay $400 a year for their images to show up anywhere other than Photobucket (and how it was disheartening since I WOULD have been able to see them if I hadn't been such a procrastinator for several years, and also couldn't fix them because I don't even use Photobucket and if I did I still couldn't fix anyone else's), but then I think I also posted when I found out that I could still see the images in Photobucket itself by opening the image in a new tab in Chrome.

Well, now I can't even do THAT anymore - the images are broken on Photobucket itself now! I'm not sure whether that's because I switched computers or whether it's because Photobucket somehow made their Terms of Service even WORSE, but one thing is for sure:

I SHOULD NEVER HAVE PUT OFF CHECKING MY FRIENDS PAGE OR ANY OF THE WEBCOMICS I USED TO READ BACK IN 2011-2013. Pretending I've gone back in time to finish all of that sooner is not going to cut it. Even if I also link to the DW version of the entry I just linked to.

I should've at least started catching up earlier than 2015... When I played Super Smash Bros. for 3DS for the first time, I played All-Star Mode, and hearing this soothing but slightly sad-sounding music in between rounds and seeing the years the characters debuted (especially when they were years I was around for, especially especially when it was as recent as 2001-2006 or 2007-2013) written on a wall in what looks like ancient ruins really gave me the feels the first time around and made me think about how long I'd been putting off the stuff I wanted to catch up on - why didn't I start my trip through memory lane THEN (besides the fact that I was still super excited to finally play that game)? If I had, I might actually be done by now!

I feel like the world (especially the Internet) is just becoming more and more destroyed by the minute... not only that, I've been feeling like I'VE let the world get destroyed by waiting all the way until 2015 to start catching up on everything I wanted to catch up on! I know that sounds silly, but it also sounds exactly like how I feel every time something else I could've seen years ago but didn't disappears. Which is ALWAYS.



Well, FINE!! If you can't beat the fact that half of the Internet looks like Comments on a Postcard fanstuff now, JOIN the fact that half of the Internet looks like Comments on a Postcard fanstuff now!

Other people are bitching about Photobucket also. I quit them a long time ago. People seem to be dumping Facebook and Twitter. Things do seem to be falling apart. Maybe it's a good thing?

People seem to be dumping Facebook and Twitter.

...Why? I know there were people who hated each already, but there's not suddenly a lot of people deciding to leave it like what happened in April with LJ, is there?!

I think because of censorship.

Photobucket is a pain.

Yeah... why would they think that having their images no longer being viewable ANYWHERE, even on their own site, is a good idea? And why haven't they realized in the four months it's been since they made that change that almost everyone hates them for it and they're (hopefully) just losing money because of it?

I am so glad I never used Photobucket myself. I have enough stuff to fix in my entries as it is! :(

You make some good points there. I don't know why people would be so unobservant.

Photobucket screwed a lot of people with their crap decision to do that. I do freelance admin work and this dude paid me a few weeks back to go download his photobucket and add to imgur and fix his photos in a thread. Pinche Photobucket!!

Do you know of ANY way I can still see other people's Photobucket images (in other words, ANY Photobucket images, because I've never used Photobucket myself)? I used to be able to right-click, click "Open image in new tab", and then I'd be able to see it on Photobucket's site (occasionally it would still be that placeholder image, but usually it would show up), but now that's no longer working. Not sure if it's because I had to switch computers or what.

Photobucket hates their users so much. I'm not even a fan of saying that companies hate their users or fans or whatever, but clearly it's the case for Photobucket if they don't even care that almost everyone hates them for this decision and they're (hopefully) just losing money because of it. :(

Also, apparently everyone hates FB and Twitter now, too - see the comments.

A few people do not make an everybody. :) Especially considering how hugely popular they both are.

I hope "a few people" means less than there was for LJ...

I thought photobucket went out of style when myspace did?

I've seen that lame "please upgrade your Photobucket account" placeholder image so many times (and have seen it in forum posts as recent as 2010, because I was desperately trying to catch up on so many things I procrastinated catching up on reading but am still only that far) that IF Photobucket went out of style when MySpace did, it clearly still managed to not go as MUCH out of style as MySpace did if so many people were still using it for that long. Until this year, of course.

If I had to pick six words to describe myself, I would panic and ask someone for help because I am so downright random and weird that there is no possible way to describe myself or my journal in only six words.

So here's a list of things you'll probably see in this journal, in no particular order:
- Posts about my life
- Posts about my worrying about being disliked for any number of reasons
- Posts about the fact that I'm trying to fix all the things that are messed up in my LJ and DW and catch up on lots of websites that I'm behind on reading
- Backups of my posts on Miiverse now that Miiverse is discontinued... so if you want to know what some random guy was saying about New Super Mario Bros. U or Nintendo Land five years ago, this is the journal for you :P
- Quizzes and surveys and such
- References to random things I'm obsessed with
- Whatever else I feel like posting

Some of the random things I'm obsessed with are:
- LiveJournal (obviously)
- Looking back at things that were made years ago... old posts on LJ, etc.
- Math
- Weird dreams
- Video games (mostly Mario, Super Smash Bros., Kid Icarus, and Chip's Challenge)
- Video game music
- Homestar Runner
- Enya, my favorite singer and biggest celebrity crush
- Too many comics/webcomics to name... Garfield, mezzacotta, Terror Island, and Circle Versus Square might be the ones I'm the MOST obsessed with though. Oh, and Super Mario Maker Crash Course - that counts as a comic, right? It certainly counts as something I'm obsessed with :P
- Speaking of Super Mario Maker Crash Course, my biggest *fictional* crush is Mary O. Yes, I have a crush on the guide to a video game MANUAL. I'm so weird...


For a (hopefully) complete list of interests and Q&A about me, visit my profile. :) (Which is still in need of an update...)

This journal is semi-friends-only, but there's not much rhyme or reason to which entries are public and which ones aren't...
