Photobucket Migration to the Darklands - Stage II - Nicodemus - 07-02-2017 07:13 PM

Welcome to Stage II of the CDO image migration (backup)!

We need your help to continue backing up image content here on CDO, from Photobucket (if you find Image Shack content feel free to back it up, but make sure you save images with the correct filenames, and make it clear when you send in the zipped content that it is Image Shack content, not Photobucket).  

Because backing up another member's content is a much more laborious task than backing up your own Photobucket content, CDO would like to offer a medal to members who are willing to help out.  The medal is an upgraded version of the flaming fractured camera from the Stage I Photobucket migration thread.

Behold:

If you would like to volunteer to backup a user's data here is how you do it:

1. Check the member list at the bottom of this thread (which is continually expanding), OR search for members via the Member List search function (or via Google if they've gone Unregistered), OR look for old favourites from your own memory, OR trawl through showcase, army blogs, conversions and tutorials to find members (this latter stage is particularly relevant for Unregistered members).

Check this Stage II thread to see that no one else has announced that they'll backup that member's content. To avoid duplicating work, please leave active member's content for them to backup themselves, for the time being.

Please do not pick more than one member at a time.

Announce in this thread the name of the member whose content you will backup. Staff will check periodically and update the master list at the bottom of this post.

2. Enter the member's profile (unless the user has become Unregistered), open any army log/showcase links in their signature may contain, but most importantly use the Find All Threads function.



When searching for threads, look for Showcase, Army Blogs, Conversions & Tutorials. These are the threads that may contain Chaos Dwarf images. The Off-topic Showcase has lower priority, so back that content up last.


3. Browse all of these Modelling & Painting threads, and start hunting for images:


4. Once you reach the threads start looking for Photobucket links. In the DAGabriel example above, although the images are loading correctly (for now), if you right-click on the images you will see that they link to Photobucket and will likely be blocked very soon, if not already.  

For example, the first image from the above example links to:
http://i964.photobucket.com/albums/ae121/triekehr/Chaos%20Dwarfs/02CD1Introduction.jpg

You will need to make note of the member's Photobucket username, in this case triekehr, and you will also need to make note of the subdomain, i964. We need both of those pieces of information to get this fix to work.

Also, in the above example you can see that DAGabriel has a subfolder. In this case, when saving the image you would also need to create a subdirectory with the same name Chaos%20Dwarfs on your system to save the image into. Please check carefully whether or not you are saving content from one subfolder or another when doing this or the image linking won't work when we copy their data over. This is also a tricky example as "%20" means a blank space. Don't put in a blank space in the filename, make the folder name "Chaos%20Dwarfs" in this case.  Moving on...


5. Unfortunately, saving the images directly will not work as the browser saves a redirect html page from Photobucket as the .jpg you're trying to save.

Instead you will have to copy the images location and paste it into a new browser window so that Phtobucket loads the image through its interface:


From the Photobucket interface you can right-click and save the image to your system.


6. Continue saving images for the CDO member in the same manner as above, going post-by-post through the threads you are assigned. Be sure to double-check the location of images that appear to be loading correctly, because like the images in this example, they are hosted by Photobucket and they aren't going to work for much longer. Be sure to backup any linked images the member may have in their signature as well.


7. Once you finish backing up all of the images in a thread you will need to zip all of the images into a new archive.

Please name this archive using the following format:
PhotobucketUsername_subdomain.zip

For the above example this would be: triekehr_i964.zip


8. Upload the .zip file to Dropbox, Google Drive, or any other storage service and notify the Staff member that assigned you the task, or send a PM to the generic Staff account with the link to download the .zip archive. They will take over the files from here.


9. Report! Announce in this Stage II thread that you have backed-up the member's thread (please list their username and the thread), and mention if it is missing anything.


10. Finally, you can either pick another member (back to step 1), or take a break and await your new medal.

Please note, awarding medals may take a little time as we will likely award them in batches.

Thanks in advance to everyone that can help us out. There is a lot of work to do, but with any luck we'll recover most of our missing and endangered content ASAP!

RE: Photobucket Migration to the Darklands - Stage II - Admiral - 07-03-2017 02:47 PM

Blue = member's saved content
Green = members who still have content needing to be backed up
Red = lost content which cannot be salvaged

If you are an active member please backup any Photobucket content ASAP

Salvageable Content, by Member

A (P) after an account name signifies a link to that member's profile or a link to that member's "Find All Threads" search results. Use it for quick link!

Blarg real life has stepped in on me, I still intend to do m3lvins main thread but I won't enable to start until Friday or Saturday


RE: Photobucket Migration to the Darklands - Stage II - Carcearion - 07-04-2017 11:10 AM

Correction, looks like I'll have some time today to do this.

If the members Photobucket username has a underscore in it (in this example m3lvins username is Crow_89) will that mess things up?

Hmmm... what about The Great Emissary Exchange? since that blog has images from multiple members how would one go about doing that one?

Edit: also similar threads like the image gallery

Unless we luck-out and have most of the contributing members backing up their content then it will require staff involvement as posts will have to be manually redirected in some cases.

You've got the right idea though - it's a bit of a dog's breakfast. What I've tried to do to start is stick with the quickest and easiest fixes for now, but they won't solve all of our problems.

RE: Photobucket Migration to the Darklands - Stage II - Xander - 07-05-2017 08:34 AM

I just wanted to personally thank everyone who is helping out! Great job!


RE: Photobucket Migration to the Darklands - Stage II - Kamphre - 07-05-2017 09:38 AM

Maybe this can help :
On Firefox (and Chrome), you have developement tools integrated to the browser. You can activate them by pressing "Ctrl + Maj + I" on Firefox.

Then you have a few menus, the last one should be "Network" ; Click on it.
Reload your CDO blog page. Every call to the servers are logged here.
Once loaded, you can sort by domain and find the calls to photobucket.
And you'll find every image url for this page.

RE: Photobucket Migration to the Darklands - Stage II - Nicodemus - 07-07-2017 01:45 PM

We're still backing up.. Thanks to everyone that has contributed so far.

Please don't forget to include the i### subdomain (it may also be in the form of s###) from the Photobucket link as well as a link to one of the pages on the forum so we can confirm images are working.

It's a little extra work for you when submitting the backed up images, but it's a lot of extra work for us to do it for every submission, in addition to mirroring the images, creating the mirrored directory tree and making the custom redirect code for each of these users Wink

Thanks, and please, keep them coming!!

RE: Photobucket Migration to the Darklands - Stage II - Willmark - 07-12-2017 09:57 PM

Anyone else having problems even dowanloading?

At first I couldn't get the entire photo library to download, now I can even get individual files to download. Of if they do, its downloading an empty jpeg file (shows as zero bytes at the downnlaod modal window).

Frustrating to say the least.

Great job PhotoBucket! /saracasm


RE: Photobucket Migration to the Darklands - Stage II - Zanko - 07-13-2017 01:50 AM

The download ran more or less problem-free (about 10 days ago). I am now recovering my blog slowly but surely ...


                        Hashut!


RE: Photobucket Migration to the Darklands - Stage II - Admiral - 07-13-2017 03:16 AM

Willmark, that is worrisome. Fingers crossed it's just a temporary glitch. However, there is one solution even if this has become the case straight across the board: Open pictures individually, and copy-paste them into MS Paint. It won't allow for Nicodemus' smart solution, but it will save pictures.


RE: Photobucket Migration to the Darklands - Stage II - Kamphre - 07-13-2017 03:32 AM

I sent my slaves trying to recover what they could.
Here's the start of what they gathered, more expeditions will be back soon.
"Only" the Hobby section has been mined, but as slaves are a little stupid, they didn't find everything...
But it's better than nothing...

Hope it helps !
@Nicodemus : let me know the txt format is ok for you. Wink

RE: Photobucket Migration to the Darklands - Stage II - Kamphre - 07-14-2017 02:59 AM

Thank you Grimbold and Zanko !
I also saved what I could from your blogs.

I have an archive for every member who posted pics hosted on Photobucket on the Hobby section.
I have only pics that are still visible. So if you want to get your zip to add your images (downloaded directly from Photobucket for example), send me a PM.

I will provide Nicodemus 2 or 3 archives to avoid him to download lots of small zip.

RE: Photobucket Migration to the Darklands - Stage II - Nicodemus - 07-17-2017 09:56 PM

Thanks for all the backup efforts everyone.

Can I ask that you all please stick to sending this information via a PM to the Staff account instead of inline in the thread here. By posting here I have to keep checking both places.  

At least with the messages going to the Staff account I can move messages to a "Completed" folder when each job is done. When they're posted to the thread here the staff/admins don't have any way of knowing for sure if it's being actively worked on or if it's completed yet without also searching follow up messages.

Thanks!


RE: Photobucket Migration to the Darklands - Stage II - Admiral - 07-22-2017 06:20 AM

All Chaos Dwarf Army Blog users have now been registered into the member lists in post #1. Next up, users in Tutorials. Then Showcase. Given the number of overlaps, we've probably already got the majority of hobbyists mapped-out.


RE: Photobucket Migration to the Darklands - Stage II - Horace - 07-25-2017 06:50 AM

Photobucket really can suck my bull over all this.

There is no need to recover my photos, I don't have much posted & I will relocate them to somewhere else next time I update my blog

Commendable efforts from everyone though

RE: Photobucket Migration to the Darklands - Stage II - Kamphre - 07-25-2017 07:17 AM

I forget to update this topic : I uploaded the archive for remaining threads.
Downloadable here

Unfortunately, many of the pics are already lost or blocked by Photobucket and just a few of them are recoverable. Sad


RE: Photobucket Migration to the Darklands - Stage II - Admiral - 07-25-2017 07:32 AM

Thanks Kamphre!

Some which are blocked by Photobucket in the threads, are still accessible by roundabout means if one open link to PB images in new tab, and access them and/or the album from there. Manual labour, though.

I'll check if I can automatize this procedure, as I did before.


RE: Photobucket Migration to the Darklands - Stage II - Admiral - 07-26-2017 07:42 AM

Very well.

The mapping of members and listing with links have now grown so lengthy that we've ran into issues. There are no upper word or picture limits on CDO, unlike on say Warseer. This is a benefit, but eventually we might run into the limits of this freedom, as we have now with the linked name lists: The forum cannot handle the length, and frays away parts of the list at the end. Not something I've encountered previously.

We've got backup copies, but henceforth the original content of the first post will be split over the three or so first posts. #1 now contains only instructions. #2 contains only list of salvagable content by member. #3 contains unsalvagable content by member, hijacked from Carcearion. Such hijacking of your posts down the line will continue if necessary.

Lesson learnt: Even on CDO there can be good reasons to install multiple placeholder posts at the start of threads which you know will grow vast in their first post/s.




Showcase proper ploughed through, members mapped-out. Image Gallery and Conversions left to map out. The gallery might be a tad much on the repetition front, and might be left out since the workload is sufficient without it...

Website News contests with images ploughed through. Bloody fortunate, because we were already starting to lose images from some albums such as those hosted by Hashut's Blessing (some early Artisan's Contests, it seem, and those were never saved to the frontpage galleries) and a couple of pictures randomly of those hosted by Grimstonefire. Pure luck that Bloodbeard made GH XVIII into a front page gallery when he did, otherwise we would have lost them, and they're late in the chronology! It should be noted, though, that to cut down on work I've only saved images by usernames (among other, non-contest pictures), so we cannot reconstruct contest by contest easily from my quick-salvage. Cutting some corners to keep this humane.

I came upon an interesting thing, a pattern that I suspected while organizing contests and now have some numbers on. This concerns a couple of fanatic devotees of Hashut, who rarely miss a modelling contest and blows almost everyone else out of the water. Which people am I talking about? Many of you will know already:

Abecedar and Zanko.


Now, I've not counted their potential participation in any contests consisting only of text (SC and some ACs) or lost pictures (some ACs), but even from the quick count garnered during the census sweep, it became clear in numbers what persistent workhorses both of them are. True Dwarfs. Or Chaos Dwarfs, rather!

You see, Zanko leads one side of the race with 23 modelling contest entries. 23! This German has set a record with modelling contests entered.

Abecedar is a close second with 22 modelling contest entries, and he also have two artwork/concept entries and one boardgame entry. Plus a whole slew of Scribe's Contest entries. This Australian has set a monumental record with contests in general!

These two veterans are true sons of the Father of Darkness. Splendid output, both of you. Takes Hat off

On the side, we also have Pyro Stick with a respectable 10 modelling entries, tjub at 11 and Grimstonefire with 14. Few people have yet reached a two-digit number in modelling contests. Follow their lead, and our great works shall multiply mightily. Pirate

And now the trawling of images continues in other parts of the forum...

I have some of Boradors Photos (14) saved at home.
Would they be of assistance?


RE: Photobucket Migration to the Darklands - Stage II - Admiral - 08-05-2017 06:06 AM

Certainly. I included Borador in the salvagable list because there are a few remaining pictures strewn about in all his threads which aren't dead links. They can be salvaged by hand if nothing else (have done this), but not by downloading Photobucket albums.

I have noticed something strange, which like other things with this Photobucket seems inconsistent and does not seem to hold true all of the time: As of late, I have been able to access locked-down images by clicking "Open image in new tab." But if I misclick, or just click down a picture and needs to open it again, it will be permanently locked this time. Also, some accounts' images which I was able to quick-salvage earlier, are all locked down to me as well. I have no idea if this is true for others around here or if it will affect Photobucket downloads, but I'd better mention it. As the Photobucket crisis progress, we should expect more than a few accounts which previously had salvagable pictures to become unsalvagable ones (I will not move them to the red list, however, just in case something is still possible to salvage by roundabout means).


RE: Photobucket Migration to the Darklands - Stage II - Abecedar - 08-06-2017 07:22 AM

Black_Fortress_Immortal.

His first pics are with Imgur, then the rest appear as "attachments"

Demi_Morgana  -  Photobucket, and the pics are blocked

Devlanmud  -  His pics are with Imgur


RE: Photobucket Migration to the Darklands - Stage II - Admiral - 08-06-2017 07:42 AM

Yes, I've not singled out Photobucket users. I've targeted all users with salvagable pictures at all, including attachments and fresh Imgur images. Volunteers here might want to focus on Photobucket salvage, but in the long run we should consider every surviving image as endangered, regardless of photohosting service.

I could access some of Demi_Morgana's pictures during the salvage sweep some days or weeks ago. Mayhap that is no longer possible. Symptomatic for the creeping Photobucket die-off by lockdown we're witnessing. As explained above, Demi_Morgana will remain on the salvagable list just in case.

Good thing you report it here, Abecedar. It can help others direct their salvage efforts.




Alright, CDO's hobby section census is now complete. I won't touch Ideas & Advice or Off-Topic Discussion, nor will I rifle through the Image Gallery since that is one pile of double-work for me if I ever saw one. If you somehow find a member with hobby pictures to salvage not covered by this list, then please report.

That's it for me, gentlemen. Stellar work of you salvaging by Nicodemus' clever method so far. Best of luck in your endeavours! Takes Hat off


RE: Photobucket Migration to the Darklands - Stage II - Admiral - 08-07-2017 09:47 AM

Happened upon next strange thing, probably related to the sheer amount of forum coding on the first page:

Several of the member links are broken, despite directing to correct url-pages. Exchanging the links (for identical ones...) does not work. It is completely random which ones work and which ones don't.


RE: Photobucket Migration to the Darklands - Stage II - Threadbare - 08-10-2017 10:20 AM

I was looking up some images that were locked out on photobucket and got them to load after I hit the refresh button, so I took a second look at Demi_Morgana and was able to pull up and save all of his army blog photos. Everything except the first post.
