Preventing Bitrot by Hosting Images on RPG

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby Remæus on Mon Aug 10, 2020 8:09 pm

Are you tired of going back over your old stories and seeing the "Image not available." text instead of your carefully-selected, mood-setting illustration? Or, perhaps even worse, having your photo watermarked because you don't want to pay for hosting?



Bitrot, the bane of high-quality storytellers web-wide. Look no further, you can host your images on RPG!

Step 1: Create an OOC thread
Every Universe on RPG has its own OOC forum, accessible through the "OOC" tab on its main page:



Click the "Create Thread" button on the top right, and you'll be able to create a thread to hold images for your players.



Set the topic title to something like "Image Hosting for (Your Universe Name Here)", and feel free to use the following template for the text:
Code: Select all
Image hosting for our Universe!  Add your images for the roleplay using the attachment feature to this thread.

How to use:
[list=1][*]Start a new reply to this thread[/*]
[*]Use the "Upload attachment" feature:
[img-crisp]https://www.roleplaygateway.com/images/rpg-forum-add-attachment.png[/img-crisp][/*][/list]


Once you've posted it, you can then reply with the "Upload attachment" tab at the bottom of the reply form:



Once you've attached an image and published the post, you can use the links in the footer to embed your image!

Just came across this article, which goes into more depth on bitrot and covers a few of the finer points regarding permanence on the web.
