Livejournal, come on. [Scrapbook Going Away]

Oh, bitchcakes.
Does anyone know how to download pics from Scrapbook en masse? Doing it individually will take days!

You're makin' it difficult to keep standing up for you. Stoppit.

Alright, I am not drunk enough to deal with this, so I'm just going to put out this PSA:

Livejournal Scrapbook is going away and will be replaced by the mysterious "Photo Album". Your 10GB of Paid Member space is now 2GB. If you care, there is an explanation in Russian on the Russian news page. There's also a user-submitted translation.

+ You will no longer have access to your Scrapbook once this goes live.
+ Your images will redirect, but the URL will be different.
+ Unable to tell what will happen to any photos you have that put you over the 2GB limit.
+ Back up your Scrapbook just in case.
+ If you want your photos transferred over now instead of waiting, let them know here.

Thanks to storyfan for telling me about this (relevant comments on page 13): For now at least, you can still upload/manage your scrapbook via http://pics.livejournal.com/manage/.

Considering I must debate renewing in 2 days, I am leaning less and less towards bothering.

I didn't, because I had similar misgivings.

I suppose I should contact them and prevent it happening automagically.

I don't see any way on that manage page to actually copy/download/archive anything though. Just upload. :P

I never could figure out how to work the Scrapbook properly, so I just linked to pics on my personal FTP site.

Goddammit, why can't people just leave well enough ALONE???

Gee, this is reminding me of what happened during the last couple years of my old email account.

I've never upgraded my account from the days of needing a code number to get in. It looks like I made the right choice. I still use my Flickr account to link pics.
