x-posted from me. Gifscraper lives!
Alright, I suppose now is as good a time as any to do this.
was suspended, I wasn't sure if I should change the setup of thecommunity to be in line with LJ's ToS (they said I could create a newcommunity) or if I should just remove it from LJ altogether. I decidedto do both.
The program has been running ever since thecommunity was suspended, I just disabled the part that posted theresults. I've made some changes to the program and while I beleive thehotlinking argument is rediculous, I decided that I would not hotlinkcontent from people's personal domains. (That's not to say the imagesaren't making it into the feed.)
This also affects </a></b></a>animgifscraper
,which hasn't really been a problem but since it is basically the sameprocess, I decided to incorporate that community's feeds into the newsetup as well.
It still needs some work, but it's functional andoperational. I'll be making adjustments as time allows. I'm morefocused on adding to the program and not the fancy-ness of the webpage.Some older posts may not be formatted properly, I haven't had a chanceto fix those but it's a minor annoyance more than anything.
considered removing the links back to the source as a big FUCK YOU tothe miserable shitstains who started this crap, but I figured that ifsomeone DID want to credit the source, they could. And sometimes yousee something wacky or crazy and you want to know where it came from.Right before the community was suspended I found out that some'vigilante' was following the links back to the journals and tellingeveryone their icons were showing up - many of those people didn'tcare. If this becomes a problem again, the links come off.
So, here's the link: http://www.journalpics.net
Apropos,no? Both icons and animated GIFs now reside there, under seperatecategories but with the main page showing most recent entries betweenthe two.
Now, if you happen to have an RSS reader, you can add the following URLs to your reader:
Animated GIFs: http://www.journalpics.net/index.php?/feeds/categories/2-Animated-GIFs.rss
You may or may not realize that LiveJournal has the ability to syndicate RSS feeds
so that they show up on your friends list. May I go on the record andsay that I will not be responsible for going to the bottom of this page
and adding the above feeds, which are in no way affiliated with LiveJournal.
Also, if you happen to know anyone who appreciated </a></b></a>iconscraper
