Not sure where to put this. I'm thinking in terms of CPF members but I don't care if anyone takes it in another direction. Edgy, if you think this would be better served in another section feel free to move it.

Whatever happened to "dinosaur jesus"?


I know I just got back after a long hiatus so maybe he has been around. But I don't see any posts by him in these more recent threads.

I was just looking over the old Find Jeff Wilpon In History thread and I want to share some of his work on facebook or twitter or, wherever.
It's really a crying shame that so many of the photoshops in that thread are no longer in that thread. None of his show up (I should add to me, in case they are just not loading) so I not only want to ask his permission, but also if he can re-share them. Also can't load Batmags's or Grimm's or others. The problem may be on my side. Mine load, but they are still being supported from the same URL as they were then.

Some were already shared on fb thru the CPF page. Correct? Did you get the best ones up Edgy? I should run a search....
Not sure where I want to share 'em on fb, but it'll probably be one of the True To The Orange And Blue ones (there are 2 with very similar names-I'm pretty active at one of them). The one with more members. Or maybe just whatever Mets page has the highest numbers. I won't share them on twitter until the season starts. I never go there in the off season.

I want those photoshops to be seen. People will enjoy 'em.

Zvon, if you click on DinoJesus's name on that (terrific) thread, you will see that he was last here Dec 4 and was having trouble with the new format. Hope he's not lost!

I think that mine were hosted on Photobucket. Maybe they did something on their end that makes the images no longer visible. I think that most (or at least, many) of them ended up in the Jeff Wilpon album on the CPF Facebook page.

Mine are still in my Photobucket and still up. Maybe you tidied up and moved things into other folders or something like that. They could have done something too, no doubt. Those places are always changing up shit. Have you gone there recently? Sometimes if you disappear for a long, long time and don't visit or log in, a site like that will put you on lock down (so to speak).

I've been using Google Photos for the MFC blog, but only because Google makes all the other photo storage sites a bitch to use on their blogs. I do believe this is intentional.

Thank you Coob. That guy forced me to become a better photoshopper.

We got a new format? YAY!

I just checked, and apparently Photobucket is no longer allowing the images hosted on their site to be viewed on third party websites unless you upgrade your account to their "Plus 500" plan. It costs $399.99 per year.

Yeah, no thanks.

I think Elster is mainly here during the season. I hope he comes back

Am I allowed to use it cause I've been a member there for so long? Or because I have used very little of my storage space.

WHOA! Just went there. It has become pop-up city to me. I have to go and d/l all my stuff. I use that place for storage and I have always counted on PB to back me up.
Seems I can still do what I used to do. Ill have to re-check the Wilpon thread. But, ha, there are actually pop up ads IN MY RECENTLY UPLOADED IMAGES PAGE. OMG, thats fuckin terrorism.

Time to fill my drive back up.
small HA!
