just a suggestion, for posterity it's probably better to upload them to imgur, which will likely survive this forum and/or its next incarnations that lose attachments like hl2net did after switching to xenforo.
I'm not real confident on how long imgur can survive since reddit got its own thing, but maybe. I can always re-upload them.

And to suggest the site might shut down or switch away from XenForo... @Chris D 's gonna give you 20 infractions, lol

Excuse me what the **** do you mean by that
Well, I was gonna call it "Super-awesome comic about bad images in the image dump that captures the characters personalities perfectly" but it's a little wordy.

We didn't lose attachments when we switched to XenForo.

sorry i misspoke, i was kinda drunk. we always used imageshack back in the day which apparently still exists but none of the image embeds have survived. imgur seems like the best bet as far as longevity goes these days

Probably best just to upload images here directly using the "Upload a File" button. We've never deleted any images ever uploaded here and disk space isn't as much of an issue as it was - @StarMonkey hosts us now.

Imageshack did some nonsense where they moved to a paid model so can understand that they've not survived.

But, yeah, Imgur is probably a good bet otherwise.

I've got them but they're embedded in an mht file, which I can't attach. I'd have to recreate them or just take screenshots of the page or something.

Adrik STILL looks like Dave Grohl to me
He still does to this day, even though I don't think he has shaved in god knows how long. ALso horrified I put my real name out there in the member pics. If I weren't laughing so hard at seeing all of this shit again I would be crying over it all. You're doing the work of Christ.

Here's a long-ass shot, but I am missing many episodes of my gmod comics. If anyone by random chance ever saved anything like that I'd be incredibly grateful.

Not a clue. Good to see a friendly face once more (whatever your "real" face is, though, has been effaced by that avatar, the memory of which has stepped in time with my mind for years).

You know it's funny, I think of this avatar as being new. I can't exactly remember what I used to use here before it, but I sure as shit know it didn't look like this.
