Let's Play Rules, Claims and Archive ver. 5.0 - Read Before Posting!

? I'm not suggesting anything of the sort. I'm specifically arguing against such a thing.

I just don't understand the rationale. If I click on an LP, it's because I want to read it, which means I want to see the screenshots. If it's a new update, the forum software will jump straight to the newest post. If I'm looking for something older, I'll need to expand them all anyway to find what I'm looking for. It just sounds to me like extra work for zero benefit.

I'm genuinely asking because I'm unfamiliar with the forum in its current incarnation: is there any situation or "reader" for the forum where a photo-heavy Let's Play would load for anyone for any reason other than they distinctly clicked on the Let's Play? Because I'd hate to gunk up someone's "feed" with a hundred pictures of Shion emoting for no reason, but, conversely, if you see it's stated as a screenshot LP in the first post, a wall of images sounds about right on entry.
 
Soooo... Are the old forum's LPs just lost forever now? Because I kept all of my old LPs archived for just such an eventuality.

The entirety of the old forum has been archived. Check "Talking about Private Membership" for details.

Re: Images, you can use smaller thumbnails that when clicked will enlarge into the full image (or link to such from most image hosting sites nowadays), which should mitigate the issue?

I am formally claiming World of Final Fantasy: Maxima. The first few "chapters" should be up this afternoon.

Wanna hear something weird?

I'm gonna do an LP of Cave Story.

Yeah, weird, huh.
 
Is the archiving of the old LPs going to make them show up in the new format? There's a lot of old LPs that I wanted to read (Xenosaga in particular) that the combination of small pictures and bad CSS made really painful on my phone. With the new CSS making pictures blow up to fit the size of my phone while not making me constantly grow and then shrink so I can read the text I'd like to get at them.

It's very unlikely. I might be able to improve the CSS for the archive for mobile viewers, at least.
