Well you know, it's a wiki. You can edit it. :twisted:

And while I'm on the subject, if there's any other spamuser groups we can add them to that page. Didn't we have a "Kingdom of Loathing" group at one time? WoW? Powerful Washington lobbying PAC?

I had wanted to make a KoL group, but it was kinda vetoed. I supposed we could make a page with people's names though.

That's a good question. I really like that we've been able to put so much into the wiki, since that gives the opportunity for anyone to edit it. In fact maybe we can get Skimba to enter the latest telepicky in there when it's done...

But there's no way the SCC thing is going to work that way. It may be necessary to create a special directory and just copy that stuff straight over as-is.

Broken images on old guest strips make me a sad axolotl. Any way we could automate something to save a copy of images linked in the Spamuser Comics forum?

We could just set up a gallery, but that would take some of the fun away from the forums.

perhaps a generic spamusers photobucket account and save every new guest strip from now on to that account in case the original disappears?

I dunno about photobucket, but imageshack has lost various spamuser related images of the course of the past 5 years.

photobucket doesn't delete as long as you log in once every 30-60 days

Imageshack has crashed on me too many times, I always photobucket now.
When the latest pictionarythingie is done, I'll be happy to have catass load it up. :D

I've had photobucket since I started here, and haven't lost anything despite only using it to put comics or pictures in it that I subsequently share here. So you know I haven't been there every 2 months.

I think even Photobucket wouldn't be foolproof, because looking back through the comics (all of them :shock:) a number of Photobucket image links are broken, or deleted for being NSFW.

A ton of my photobucket-hosted spamusements have been removed due to terms of use violations
I love this post so much I'm going to take it behind the middle school and get it pregnant!

I've used the same Photobucket account since I was twelve and I've never had an image deleted (except the ones I deleted on purpose).

That's a good question. I guess I've screwed around long enough and need to revisit the list and start actually doing things again.

Meanwhile I've created a "features" subdirectory off the main site to put items that aren't the forums or fit in the wiki, like the Spamusement: The Comic: The Comic stuff. I was thinking about putting the quiz there but then I got to thinking maybe I should create a "games" directory instead? So I sorta got stuck in indecision-land there. And there's been other features I've been thinking of that I should really start on, too.

So what's next? BANNERS! :)

So, how about a comic viewer for someone who might want to go through every single spamuser comic! Of course there are a few drawbacks:
  1. Many older spamusements are missing, as OP Tipping noted recently.
  2. Comics buried within a thread don't show up.
  3. The HTML stylings on the page are still fairly basic. Could probably use a bit of sprucing up.

Ever wanted to have a URL you could send to a friend to just see your comics? Well you can do that now using this format:

Code: Select all

http://www.spamusers.com/comic.php?id=1&spamuser=myusername
http://www.spamusers.com/comic.php?spamuser=myusername

The first line goes to your first comic, the second line goes to your latest. By way of example, here is Dween's first comic.

Wow, so Dween's last comic was where we all found out he won $50,000 and a trip to central america... did his plane crash maybe or something? It's ridiculous to think that something like that could have happened and we'll never know unless he comes back or has been in touch with someone, which clearly wouldn't occur if he's dead. Crazy.
