photobucket bandwidth and tumblr  
HMMM. It looks like all the images I have stored on photobucket will be out of commission until the 16th. This is a problem since I'm planning on uploading some stuff before then.

Does anyone who's familiar with tumblr know how image uploading works on that site? Is it possible to host pictures on tumblr and then link to them on LJ without the internet imploding and angry people knocking on my door?

In any case I'll start using my tumblr now. I'll post downloads and WIPs and other sims stuff and it'll allow me to see what everyone else is doing in their games since everything seems to be on tumblr these days. Please link me your simblrs and I'll follow them!

On tumblr you upload directly from your computer but from what I know there's a limit there too.You can also make a new account on Photobucket and switch between them so that way you have the bandwidth for the hole month.

Thank you, the tumblr information was very useful. I'm debating whether to make another account or just upgrade the one I have.

Thank you, I'm having so much fun looking at everyone's simblrs right now, I was really missing out!

I link images from tumblr all the time and haven't had any trouble. The posting limit is 75 photo posts a day, 250 posts in general (a day).

Oh, that's awesome news. I'll just go ahead and do that in the future for preview pics.

And you gave me a huuuge signal boost! thank you for that. :)

It must be worse for you since you're posting a whole story with much more pictures. I'm so glad I won't have to start account juggling yet. X)

That does seem like the most involved way to do things, and honestly it'll probably encourage me to upload more often. I have a bunch of small odds and ends I've never posted because they aren't part of a bigger set.

Tumblr is the place to be, man! ;) I'll follow you as soon as I'm off my phone

Regarding your Photobucket problem: you could re-upload your images to another image host; I highly recommend Imgur as it doesn't have problems with eating your pics, and registration is free. The only catch is that you'll only be able to see the last 225 photos, regardless of how many you have uploaded. The pics won't really disappear (they'll still be up on your Journal or wherever else you have posted them to), they just won't be visible from your Imgur profile. A bit of a nuisance, but I personally don't mind, as long as the images stick and are visible to my viewers.:)

Thank you, I'd never heard of Imgur. I'll look into it.

I was kind of wailing thinking how you too would leave LJ, then I realized I could actually see pictures of your game ! *forever stalkery*

*Squee*, no one I'd rather be stalked by! :D Do you have a tumblr?

And I'm not leaving LJ at all, I still like it a lot more that tumblr, it's just easier and quicker to post small updates there when you don't need to host the images elsewhere.
