News & Updates A triumphant return and a sad departure

Greetings and salutations, exalted users of RpNation.

I am Captain Hesperus, Administrator, Archlord of the Fourteenth Realm of Hell and Grand High Poobah of the Cult of Ghan (May His Code Ever Compile).
I come before you today to advise you that the bindings upon my erstwhile prison have expired and I have returned to the site in the fullness of my power and the saltiest of my forms. You may once more fall down and admire me from both afar and near (though not too near, I prefer my cultists to not drool on my satin cushions). I shall be undertaking my former role alongside the rest of the senior staff in helping you all with your problems, issues, concerns and comments.

However, with this, my first formal missive to you all, I must sadly inform you of the imminent sad demise of the site's Image Gallery. Many of you have indulged yourselves posting a vast selection of pictures, gifs (with a hard 'g', I don't care what the creator says) and other media, but with the coming new site update, the senior staff and I feel that we must close down the Image Gallery and purge it from the database. The primary reason is to reduce the sheer volume of data our server must store, improving the service we provide to you and reducing the time required to make backups of the site, should the worst happen.
I realise that this may be inconvenient for some, myself included, but it is in the best interests of the site and the community in general.

We have already locked the Image Gallery from further uploads, but we do not intend on deleting the contents for 30 days from the posting of this message, which will be Sunday 20th of June. We recommend users who wish to furnish their posts, threads and profiles with images either upload images to them directly or use one of the many off-site image storing and sharing resources, imgur for example. (But not Photobucket. That's awful.)
We appreciate all that you may find this announcement to be upsetting, but again, what we are doing is for the best. If you have any questions regarding the impending deletion, do not hesitate to contact the staff via the Staff Contact forum.

Thank you all for your time and cooperation.

tl;dr Captain Hesperus is back and he's going to eat the Image Gallery in 30 days.

Sacrificing the gallery...a necessary sacrifice, but, shall not hold RPN back, as for BBcode+ I hope to see it return thanks to Alteras Alteras even though I don’t use it myself, I just love seeing others use it and their creativity with the software, aside from that, welcome back to RPN Captain Hesperus Captain Hesperus

Well shoot, I better root through the Image Gallery and see if there's any reaction images laying around that I can add to my warehouse.

This site has seen many new changes, but to be honest, I'm not surprised something else would come up.
Once I heard the message of the bbcode+ being removed for a bit, I was actually not expecting something else to happen. But, as time went by, I knew something would come up.

Now, I don't use it much (except for the memes, that's gonna be a problem🙄), but I am a little devastated about it cause sometimes I put my drawings in there so if my art thread gets archived, I still have them. And, of course memes...
But, as time goes by, I know things will come up, but... a site has changes, and obstacles to overcome as changes are made. I trust the mighty staff will keep us updated as things come and go. Love you all with the things you do 💜

As a note, content never gets deleted or archived unless requested by the user. So any content you put in threads, PMs, etc is fine. That includes your art :)

Users are as always free to attach pictures and files directly or use something like Imgur.
