Relatively recently, the screencasters.heathenx website was closed. I
just found out about it a month or 2 ago. Mark (aka Xav, on InkscapeForum) has
acquired copies of most if not all of them. Little by little, he has been
uploading them to YouTube.
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC9iOkFutSFbcTCzQlyCr5Ig/videos I think he said
he's been adding approx 3 per week.
I've just edited the link on the Learn page
(https://inkscape.org/learn/) of the website, and added a brief notation about
the videos being added to YT. On the Video Tutorials page
(https://inkscape.org/learn/videos/), where there was simply a link to that
website, I deleted it.
The reason I deleted it, is because I don't have time to do this myself.
But I recall a year or maybe closer to 2 years ago someone was interested in
adding individual videos (links to them, I mean) to that page. So I thought
they (or anyone) might like to kind of keep track of what's been uploaded to YT,
and choose the "Best of" and add them to the Video Tutorials page.
If someone is interested to do this, but they don't already have access
to edit the page, just reply to this message, and someone can get you set up to
If no on is interested, or has time right now, there are already other
videos on the page. So I think it will be ok. But if anyone is interested, the
best of those videos would be nice to include there.
Regarding this image (which isn't flagged yet, because I didn't want it
to get deleted before this question is answered)
Mostly out of idle curiosity - it appears to be small, because when I
click on it to zoom, it stays the same size (approx 1" x 2" onscreen). But I
happened to notice the size is 4032x3024 (I guess is pixels? would be bigger
than my screen). So I thought, "what the heck?". Decided to click Download
button to see the real thing, and settle the discrepancy.
Download button gives 403 Forbidden nginx/1.12.2. Interesting, Full
Size button gives same.
Should a JPG be downloadable? It seems like it should. But I want to
confirm whether it needs a new Issue or not, before I make possibly unecessary
work for mods on gitlab.
Martin, Bryce and Travis from our friendly hosters at OSUOSL have worked
on switching the inkscape.org website to the newer version this evening.
In some parts of the world, due to DNS propagation, you might not yet
see the new page, but you will soon (it looks pretty much the same,
though, just the backend is newer).
It now features a new shiny django (yay!).
Unfortunately, it currently has problems with page edits, news edits and
Please hold off editing anything on it, to not lose any work.
Martin is working on fixing things, and will let you know when it's good
for editing again.
Downloads and viewing the pages work as usual (except for viewing pasted
texts), so most people won't be affected by the issues.
