Hi again,

http://ags.pics/ is up and running.

I've created accounts for anyone who seemed to express interest in using it. If you'd like an account and I haven't made one for you, just PM me -- it's a 5 minute process.

Ah, ok, I saw that you linked to their pricing page, so I assumed you intend to use the paid version.

Well, I very well might. It's a trade-off between time and money. I'm looking at the hosting plans that include it and they don't seem that prohibitive.
I thought you were just concerned from a code-maintenance perspective if the author ever goes away.

Yes, I would. A yearly donation would be acceptable to assist costs.

No need to donate, but that was a lovely gesture.

Cool initiative!
I'll probably use it if it's as convenient as imgur.
One concern, though, that if you run it on your server and it blows up or something, you'll need to take care of running backups. Did you consider hosting it in the cloud so you won't need to worry about this?

Umm... I don't know what you mean by this. I'm already looking at dedicated hosting.

Also, a free and open source alternative to Chevereto that you might want to check out: Pictshare.

Chevereto is also free (as in beer) and open source. Their commercial offering includes support and more frequent updates.


Regarding alternative domains, I appreciate the offers. I'm going to go with ags.pics anyway. One of my goals is to have short URLs for images. Admittedly, we could go with something like "i.agser.me/abcdef.png", but "ags.pics/abcdef.png" is just so much clearer and two characters shorter.

The mains thing are, there's been no vehement opposition and I don't seem to be stepping on anyone's toes.

That 22 EUR price for ags.pics was either false or a pricing error. I've determined costs for the entire project and it looks like it'll come to about $250 AUD/year. I'm going to look into it further after work tonight.

I'd like to improve the image hosting situation for myself and the AGS community. We have a variety of image hosts we use like Imgur and Photobucket, but anything free that's out there seems to come with a catch or annoying "features".

I currently use Imgur. I'm perhaps feeling a little more motivated because Imgur's drag and drop broke sometime last year for me and it doesn't look like they're planning to fix it. There's also the matter of Imgur's images being a bit too ephemeral for my liking. Imgur discards images that aren't accessed regularly and this breaks some older forum posts.

I've looked into the costs of running such a server and it doesn't seem all that prohibitive. I think I'd be willing to pay for this even if it were just for me.

I can purchase ags.pics for a nominal amount (22 EUR / year) via eurodns.com
There's a script called Chevereto that I could run on a dedicated host: https://chevereto.com/pricing
It doesn't seem all that expensive to purchase a licence either
Dedicated hosting ranges in price, starting at about ~$2/mo
I thought about running it from home, but I wouldn't have the bandwidth.

I don't want to donate time to this, just a little cash to set it up and hopefully have it run itself.

I was thinking of opening it up to AGS users on an invitation basis to begin with. At a later date, I might set up some sort of cookie-based authentication to allow signups for logged in members.
I would be fine with people using it for any purpose, not just AGS.

Would you use an image host like this if it existed?


Just visiting. I must say, this is a quaint little tow-- oh heavens! There's blood everywhere!

Dayowlron has it! The Love Boat. I was trying to be sneaky and show the guest stars. Next clue was Capt. Stubing, I swear. Anyway, your turn, Dayowlron!

The Daryl and Ossie Cartoon Show?

What the?! You obviously know the show but it was never called that in Australia that I'm aware of.

What the... was a segment on Rove so I'm going to guess that other Australian variety programme, Hey Hey, It's Saturday.

Hmmmm... you're right, Mantle. #4 is mine. Was it existential enough?

I think #2 is Snarky and by a process of elimination, #6 is CaptainD?

Also, I am the secret entrant!

Congrats on the release, Blondbraid! Man, it's been a long time. Hope to try this out on the weeekend.
