 YTMN presents: Remake Rematch Resurrection

This is still being edited, and the Photobucket 3rd party linking for my account is not yet live, so it will look ugly for a while.

Thanks,
YTMN

Well, I attempted to move the comprehensive catalog file post over here, but until I get Photobucket paid with their new more-mini extortion fee, I'm afraid the Corrie won't let me post it. Corrierino can't determine the dimensions of the files...probably because they aren't available for linking to. (sigh) And there is all sorts of text gobbledygook to sort through, so I don't feel like finding out specifically which files it can't determine the dimensions of. Not right now.

<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>
Shieldmaiden had the final say in the original Remake Rematch thread, so I started this new thread to continue the idea. Also, she told me in the Crew thread about Photobucket's "new management" and the "reduced" pricing that they are now offering.

Photobucket has reduced pricing on the hot-link capable 20 GB plan that I used to pay about $35.00 a year for. It's now $70.00 if you pay a year at a time. I'll sign up for that kind of account soon.

I'm still feeling as if we've been "New Coke'd" in some way. But $70 is quite a bit more affordable than $400 a year.

So, I'll be working on porting some things over here. Only time will tell whether I develop the energy to move all of Round Four to this thread (don't count on it), but I will update the alphabetic finder post here, and adjust it as the final Rematches get finished.

It was already my decision that any future Rematches will all appear at once, and no one but me will know when one is coming along. That's when Round Five begins.

I'll work the remainder of Round Four (39 posts as of 1 August 2017 when I abandoned the project last year) at irregular times and in irregular ways. I no longer have the desire to "just get it all over with." That might improve or might diminish the quality of the rest of the Round!

Thanks to everyone who has been reading over the years. Thanks especially to those who continued to read during the hiatus, and pushed the total page views beyond 2 million even when I wasn't doing a blinking thing in the thread.

I still don't understand all the interest, but again, thanks for reading.

Haha, yes.

And I'm glad you're picking it back up. :)

Well, he's taking his sweet time picking it up again. The dolt hasn't even renewed his paid subscription at PhotoBucket, yet.

The Future Unreels will also lose all its images on the same day. But just think about how many images Jedi has on Photobucket, and the other posters here.

I'd have done it already if you'd let me use the VISA.

Having multiple personalities would be a hell of a lot more fun if we didn't know about one another.

Having real multiple personalities might not be fun at all.

Oh, well, I'm really looking forward to this getting cranked up. I'll do all the work, and YTMN will take the credit.

Just because he existed first in that guy's imagination, and at RT. Idiot couldn't type Gort, though. Somehow typed Gorb, and the name was already taken.

Or that's how the legend goes.

But, by gum I was first over here! I was a Corrie before YTMN was!!

"That guy" is me, the man writing all this dreck as either YTMN or Gort.

Less confused, now? (I hope).

The rest of Round Four probably won't be your favorite part. My Excel tracking spreadsheet tells me that there are 39 posts that I didn't get put up before I abandoned the other thread. But many of them are technical information posts. They are intensive on the creation side, but may not be fulfilling to most readers. By Rematch:

BIC (Bicycle Thieves, Beijing Bicycle) has 4 tech posts remaining before completion
BRH (Battle Royale, The Hunger Games) has 6 tech posts remaining before it's done
BRN (Tom Brown's School Days) has 2 reviews, of the 1971 and 2005 versions and it will be finished
DRB (The Devil's Backbone, Dorm) has 6 tech posts remaining before it gets finished
HEL (The Mayor of Hell, Crime School, Hell's Kitchen) has 2 reviews, 2 essays, and 5 tech posts left to do
PAI (Pinocchio 1996, A.I. Artificial Intelligence) has 1 review and 5 tech posts before completion
SKN (Victim, The Skin I Live In) has 6 tech posts to create and then it will be done

Now, because I was getting very tired of the mechanics of this huge undertaking, there were essays that I canceled in nearly all these Rematches. Those may be resurrected along with the thread. We'll see.

Cheers!

Dadgummit!

Here I was blowing my punkin stem before I had all the information.

Ladies and gents, the page where you enter your credit card information at PhotoBucket does not show as secure in any of my four browsers!! That means that if I enter that information I might just have the third breach of my credit card info on the same account that I've used online before.

And that means that I won't yet be resurrecting any Rematch thread. If the Photobucket page where you disclose your payment information continues to show as an insecure connection, then Remake Rematch will still remain dead, no matter what I posted before.

:(
