Welp, Photobucket is not a fan of the account I use for hosting layout images right now, due to an excess of hotlinking. To get the account to function again is $400/year, and I'm definitely not going to pay that because that's 3-4 times as much as hosting your own website. It's going to take me some time to get things uploaded to a different server and change the links in the posts, but I will try to set something up.

Also, it's likely that I may not go back and update some of the layouts that are 5+ years old, because the coding for them is outdated at this point anyhow, and I doubt they are being used a lot. If there is a particular layout from pre-2012 that you're desperate to keep and need the images for, you can comment here with an email address and I will send the images as attachments. Comments are screened.

Thanks for your patience!

ETA: Looks like it's striking some icon sets too, so I'll have to handle that as well. If you need a particular set before I get to it, comment here and I'll bump it up the list.

ETA 2.0: For anyone desperate:
  • Check out an archive.org version of my directory, right click to view an image of your choice
  • Delete the archive.org part of the url (it will say http://i276.photobucket/etc) so that you're viewing the actual image on photobucket
  • Look for the link to the album name in the upper left, and click on it
  • You'll be able to see all of the icons when viewed on Photobucket's website.
Downloading is going to be a pain and slow going, and I understand this is a ridiculous hassle, but if someone's desperate for a face, there you have it! :)

As some people may have noticed, I haven't been making new icons or layouts lately (I've gone back to school and my program is usually a 12-hour-days kind of program), but due to the Great Downtime of 2017, I'm going to make the asylum set for open membership through the end of the month. If you need to remove and re-add yourself go right ahead, and for those who are new, please do check out the rules so that you're agreeing to provide attribution and not to hotlink and all the other nice things. Thanks, and I hope to be back at it during the summer! :)

no, i'm not closing quibblercons

All of my icons are currently showing up as broken images, thanks to Photobucket. :( I've contacted their support staff and received a message back saying that it is a "known issue affecting several users" and that their engineering team is troubleshooting the issue. Whatever the problem is, it doesn't seem to have hit the separate account I have for layout images. Fingers crossed everything comes back soon, and in the meantime, please accept my passing on "sincere apologies" from the Photobucket staff. :P

ETA: (4/19) It seems like the issue is fixed! I plan to download all of my albums over the next few days and keep them safe on an old external hard drive, just in case something like this happens again.

ETA 2: (4/25) And now it's happening to the layouts. I did download zips of all the layout images last week, so if you're suffering a broken layout (I mentioned rehosting was a good idea, but I'm betting not everyone did), please comment on this entry with the name of the layout you need the images for and I will upload the zipped folder (not the images themselves, you do need to find your own image host!) and link you. :)
