I need to be spoon-fed my cartoons because I can't be bothered to engage my brain.  Why think when I can drool?

If this is the wrong place to post this, sorry - please move it.

So, I am a firm believer in lurking more - I have been trying to go through the pixel art forums sequentially from the beginning, I know it is the nature of the beast, the past is past, etc, but there are a huge number of threads that have been rendered effectively useless by broken links and missing images.

I am sure I am not the first to gripe about it, it is just sad.

That is all.

Are you really reading all of Pixelation from the beginning?

Why not just read the treasure chest and related links in most recent general theme threads? You'll get the gist of it.

This being a forum and all, it's only fate that most of the image links will have died, since most of them will have been links from the member's webspace or a photo account.  Links will die as people clear out accounts to make room for new stuff or if they reorganize their folders, as hosting expires, etc. It's hard to keep track of what images were linked where or if there's even a relevant need to keep it there because the thread is probably buried in a graveyard of posts.

True dat. Plus it would be expensive to host all of the 1024x780 bmps where someone posted once and never again. I went through the ramblethread, the featured threads, the challenges, and a heap more, but I am the kind of person who reads the textbook before the first day of class, if you know what I mean.

Anyhow, fwiw there have been tons of gems in there.

Just read that Satoshi Kon died on the 24th last month. I'm sad now :(
