So with FA banning 90% of what I draw it's likely that a big chunk of my gallery will disappear by the 15th of December -I joined on the 16th of Dec in 2005 ha!. Having 1,028 submissions on there, it's beyond my ability (and patience) to go back and audit what's acceptable according to somebody else's standards. If you like my art and would like to save it for yourself, just have a look at my journal there on how to go about that. GreenReaper mentioned he was working on an app that can upload/download to multiple sites, including IB and FA. But it looks like that might take a while.
I've also tried making something with AHK (autohotkey) that can upload or even log into IB, but every method I've tried including using Curl has failed -_- I really really really hate loath and detest using command line programs or even trying to look up what each minus sign with a letter does. It's archaic as hell and needs to get buried forever!
Anyway, yes- I could upload everything in 10 zip files (they are only allowed to contain 100 files each), forget thumbnails and just write a description for each image over time. So I can wait a month or however long for GR, brave my frustrations with coding again and try not to kill or break something, or just bite the bullet and go the zip route. And regardless of which route I take, I'm thinking about putting up higher res versions of my work here.
Also considering whether to really upload everything that was on FA, because no matter what anybody else thinks, IMO some of my older art really sucks compared to the newer stuff. I used to believe that I should just show everything - have it be a sort of record of progress and proof that a person can change and/or get better over time. But in reality, over something like 5 years and amassing about 2,000 watchers, I think only one or two people said something to me about it while on FA. Those are pretty shitty statistics in favor of artistic history eh? There might be something like 1,000 shy people that really appreciated it and never said anything, but while having a silent presence is nice, the only way anybody is ever going to know anything about your ideas on the internet is if you speak up ^^
