Hosting the /r/civ Battle Royale
Hosting the Civ Battle Royale here is intended as a temporary solution in the wake of imgur behaving like a 13 year old that just discovered instagram.
With the latest series of changes, I don't see imgur as a viable host for the Battle Royale any longer.
All in all, we've just seen the complete removal of Horizontal Mode, re-arranging by Filename, alongside a glitchy interface and behaviour that generally made the entirety of the BR feel like it was possessed by a spooky poltergeist with extreme mood swings. Pretty much every step of the process feels over-engineered to the point of sterility and when the website fundamentally doesn't work on both the creator/viewer and viewer ends - then it's time to move on.
The straw that broke the horse by committee's back this time around was the complete removal of being able to sort by file name. When you have 80 slides, it's a tad hard to tell at a distance which order they're supposed to go in (especially when they all uploaded at the same time and imgur sorts by time uploaded, not file name).
It's really nice to have the entire BR consolidated in one place like it was for imgur - so perhaps if we find a solution/alternative to the site, we can upload every part so far. I guess now more than ever is the time to make a Battle Royale official website to skirt this entire unnecessary process.
I'll keep looking for alternatives, but if anyone wants to chime in with a hopeful solution then I'm all ears.
