Since there isn't any real way to earn the April Fool's day spinnies (they're random and change whenever you refresh the page), can we use them in our sigs, posts, etc.?

Does anyone actually care about that rule anymore? :P I'd say it's fine. It would be a pity to see all these spinnies go to waste.

Do not use BZPower as an image host. Do not link to images from BZPower elsewhere without permission. This includes uploaded avatars and images as well as rank images or any assets from BZPower.



Would this apply to using the spinnies in your sig? Or is it fine to use them without reuploading the gifs to a different host?

I'm pretty sure it's fine, many spinnies are being loaded whenever you load a topic anyway so the stress on the server is totally negligible.

That rule only applies to using BZPower images on another site, not BZP itself, so it should be okay. The only concern is that the images might be removed from the site at some point, but B6 or whoever uploaded them created a new path for the spinnies and didn't just overwrite the normal ones so I imagine they're here to stay.

 

Edit: forgot a word

You could also save the spinnies to your computer and/or upload them to an external image host such as Majhost or Imgur, if you don't want to worry about possible policy issues or losing them if the BZPower staff decide to delete these spinnies from the site at some point.

I was more looking for whether the staff would allow it or not, since I tried using the yearly masks in my sig once, and got a PM saying I wasn't allowed to unless I earned them, but thanks anyway.

Now that April 1st is past, I wish I had thought about saving those. '-' I wonder if they're still somehow accessible, or if someone kept them in a majhost folder?

Someone made a tracker about making them optional, instead of just having the yearly spinnies, plus it shows all of them.
(here a link to it)

The reason Bfa has them saved is he made most of them in the first place. :P And actually, they are still on BZPower's servers:

I haven't closed this yet because I don't know the answer - but I've seen B6 lurking this topic, and he hasn't objected, so...

Go ahead. Credit to Bfahome indeed.

 

Topic closed.
