Bubbles In Memoria
All funds raised in this special campaign will be sent to Bubbles as a thank you for his contributions.
2016 took a lot of lives with it. One of those was our much beloved content contributor named Bubbles, who sadly popped in late 2016. At the time, we had already discussed doing a fundraiser for him:
DarkUnderlordBubbles your pics are shit quality. Jesus Christ, how much do you need for a decent camera next year? I think we need to do a fundraiser.
Crooked BeeYeah, I think even mid-priced phones have better cameras these days.
BubblesNobody said that they cared about picture quality last year. Gave you plenty of time to complain
And Gamescom is about the only time I ever take pictures myself, so buying a new phone with a look to its camera qualty would be a total waste for me.
But I want to say that I understand the criticisms, and I acknowledge that they're not front page quality. I've taken down the pictures; we can use Jarl's material and high res stock photos instead. We might ask Josh to take a new one himself; I think he might be open to that, and it would seem less unprofessional than posting such low res footage on the front page. If need be, we can publish the articles without pictures.
InfinitronDon't be dramatic. The photos will look fine when they're sized down smaller, which is how everybody will see them.
We will be your guest, Bubbles. We will be your guest.BubblesI know, I just wanted to annoy the people who complained. After 9 hours and three straight days of covering video games, the last thing I need to see is "ruh roh shit pics". You had a year to request any improvements after the last Gamescom; if you want to spring for photography classes and a professional camera + tripod for next time, be my guest.
All funds raised by this campaign - which will only be open for the month of Jan - will be sent to Bubbles, so that he can finally get those much needed photography classes, a decent camera, and possibly a tripod (or cheap Mexican who can follow him around and keep the camera steady).
