Getting to know RPGMM - Part 4 - Imagine
By: Ixzion | Published: November 3, 2013 07:44 am | Site News


Welcome to the final chapter of the series designed to introduce people to the general concepts of the new RPGMM! This time, it's Imagine!

If you need a step-by-step breakdown of how to use the tools, please see the Site FAQ.

Your Imagine Account

Imagine 2.0 (iMAGine, get it?) is the RPGMM's image hosting service. This was originally designed for users to add images to their forum posts without having to use an external host. So as long as the site was up, everyone would see those images. However, this has expanded with 2.0. Now you can use Imagine links to create image galleries and embed those same links into any content that you create on the site.

Articles Images
It's happened before that some articles that featured embedded images were not hosted on RPGMM and eventually a user might have had that account deleted and thus the article on this site contained broken images. Even using Imagine 1.0, the ability to delete images cost some articles to accidentally lose their images. This is where Imagine 2.0 shines with the concept of Articles Images.

Articles Images is a special status which prevents any image linked to a Magazine article from being deleted by the uploader. This ensures that as long as the site and article are up, that the images will be as well.

Admins will be monitoring accounts to make sure that they follow the rules.

If this is unacceptable to you, it is recommended that you do not use Imagine.
