Re: Utena Gallery Torrent

If you're talking about the torrent of the revamped EM Gallery that Gio had put up a while back, I think that everybody who was interested at the time already downloaded/seeded it, and so only new members are going to be interested while everybody else has their copies. I think it's unlikely that enough people will seed the torrent for anybody to fully download it, but there's more than one way to skin a cat, as the old saying goes.

Maybe when she gets back from hanging out with Yasha in Canada, perhaps Gio could offer up a not-for-profit flash memory drive sort of deal? You pay the price of the memory drive and send it to Gio (PO box would be better if she can afford it at this stage; don't want her home mailbox to get swamped with requests!), and she dumps the Gallery contents to the drive and sends it back. A bit time consuming, but Gio could quote you the aggregate size of all the Gallery's images (somewhere around the 1.4 GB region, last I heard) so you would know how big a flash drive to send.

I doubt it'll pan out in the end (very few of my ideas do), but it would represent a way for people who know about the torrent but can't find enough people to seed it to be able to obtain a copy of the Gallery for image manip and iconing. Besides, I don't think the Gallery torrent has the latest stuff Gio said she had added to the main subsite.

Anybody with more knowledge than me on this matter (especially satyr and Gio!), I implore you to help me out so I can fill the gaps in my memory!

Re: Utena Gallery Torrent

Yeah restarting the torrent wouldn't be practical right now, not enough seeders. If there's sufficient demand, I don't mind burning the gallery onto DVDs for people and sending them out if people will pay shipping. Probably cheaper than flash drives, though everyone's free to do that also. It's 1.2gb.

Re: Utena Gallery Torrent

Hm, that sounds like a decent idea. I could mail a USB stick or something like that. Alternatively, I could set up something on *my* FTP, but that really depends if your ISP has a bandwidth cap (here in Canada we have bandwidth nazis, believe-you-me) . Once I get them, I can see a new torrent. It's the least I could do.

Re: Utena Gallery Torrent

How about this, there are apparently a couple filehosting sites that will let me upload 1.2 GB file. I'll add in the new stuff from the other thread and try that, and if it's a dud, we can do a SASE thing. emot-smile Give me a couple days to do the adding the images in and file-sizing them.

Re: Utena Gallery Torrent

40/324 completed. I have to figure out how to sort them to add them in, since they don't match the navigation setup of the set design sketches. I'm thinking of putting them entirely separate from them.

As it turns out, I do have 1.2 GB of space on the domain when I'm not using it to swap heug files back and forth with Yasha for watching Sna- um...

So I'll be uploading that in a few days. emot-smile

Re: Utena Gallery Torrent

You could run a mini 'booru and use image tags. Just a thought. Sounds like there are enough images.

Re: Utena Gallery Torrent

An image gallery script that manages images by means of tagging. Gelbooru.com is an example. (NSFW) You could run a smaller verion of a booru. They're not hard to set up and it would do away trying to organize things into a tidy bunch of categories. It'd make a search for tags like, 'juri' 'shiori' 'group' possible, or 'touga' shirtless 'saionji', and so forth.

Re: Utena Gallery Torrent

Oh, there's a search function built into Gallery. That's part of the reason I used it, though frankly I don't think they'll ever be completely tagged to be searchable. There are like 10,000 images to assign tags to. emot-frown

If you'd make it publically editable like Danbooru and the rest, I'm sure that you'd get anywhere from dozens to hundreds of helpers. Just collectively tag the untagged pictures with "tagme", and see how fast they find tags.

Yeah, you could just upload all of the pictures and with the EM crew alone they'd be tagged in no time.

Re: Utena Gallery Torrent

Before the new Gallery was actually launched, Gio got a bunch of forum members to volunteer to tag all the screencaps. They didn't quite do their jobs -- including satyr, who volunteered -- and so basically she'd need to use a cattle prod to get everybody tagging everything so that no character or scenario description goes unsaid.

Needless to say, only those who are dedicated enough to wade through over 10,000 pictures and panorama shots will be the ones to finish the job. Why knows? Maybe their work can be transferred back into the original Gallery.

Thoughts, anybody?

Well, the difference is that on the 'booru style system you just do like with wikis - give all visitors a free access to edit the tags. It may take some time, but it works surprisingly well - people who are browsing the gallery add their own tags as they go along, some like professionals, hundreds at a time, some just casually add the tags to the one or two they really wanted to see. The power of numbers and fanhood is great indeed, but if you limit it just to few volunteers, they're pretty likely to get overwhelmed by the sheer amount of data.

Re: Utena Gallery Torrent

Actually I believe I have that option with gallery, to allow guests or at least signed up members write access. I just didn't do that because I figured that was a bit of a dangerous risk to take.

Re: Utena Gallery Torrent

emot-gonk I cleaned up all those background images and took them to work to sort, and now seeing them on a tube monitor instead of an LCD, they look like shit and I didn't correct them hardly at all. emot-gonk

I guess a do-over, or I'll try anyway. A lot of the images didn't stand up to brightening without loss of detail. Now I feel like a tard, wasting four hours of work. But then I've done much worse as far as tard moments with the gallery. I just don't have the time for massive retardation anymore. emot-frown

Re: Utena Gallery Torrent

All right kids! Thanks for waiting--I had to finish up the edits for the background images and then the webspace was busy with totally legal stuff. emot-smile

I split the gallery into three zip files for your sanity. They're as follows

http://ohtori.nu/forumstuff/Gallery1.zip (340MB) This is everything EXCEPT series artwork. That is, the movie, movie caps, manga, miscellaneous releases and such.

http://ohtori.nu/forumstuff/Gallery2.zip (260MB) This is all series artwork, background screens (NEW), character designs, and omake. It excludes the series screencaps.

http://ohtori.nu/forumstuff/Gallery3.zip (480MB) Which are here. These are the episode caps, including the opening, closing, and repeated sequences.

Enjoy everybody, and thanks for your patience while I got the zips ready! I'm glad I finished the caps when I did, I'm going to be fucking swamped this term. Three fucking careplans just for psych, I'm gonna need to be in the fucking psych ward by the time this is over. emot-frown

The new caps have NOT been uploaded to the gallery proper yet, so you guys are getting a first edition here. Lemme know if I placed any of the caps wrong or whatever. I'll put them up in the gallery as soon as I get a chance.

You know, I'm sure a decent amount of pictures could be marked by people here if we just marked one every time we visited a single picture.

...Though, for the most part, I don't have much trouble navigating it.
