Two years of contributions: the mega thread (56K n

No way in hell I could have done that manually, so I asked OrangyTang from gamedev.net his python script to collect all pictures posted in gamedev.net's journals, and adapted it for the contributions forum.

The result is a mega thread of 25 pages, each containing hundreds of thumbnails of pictures that have been posted in the contributions forum. That's around 12000 images !

All the pages directory can be seen here. Sorted by time, so the more recent pages are in the 20-30:
http://www.infinity-universe.com/Infinity/Contribs/

Clicking on a thumbnail will lead to the thread it has been posted in.

The Python script used to produce those images is also in the above directory. I had to adapt it to parse phpbb forums, ignore unaccessible/deleted threads, ignore avatars/signatures/smileys, etc.. I also made it multi-threaded (20 threads yey!) so that it processes faster.

Ooh, a full directory of screenies! =D

There's no index.html so the entire directory shows, including the script. Shouldn't these be resized as well? The thumbnails seem to be full size.

All those thumbnails point to external sites. In order to make real thumbnails, I would have to copy, downscale and host the thumbnails on my own site. That's too much work for what it is.
