Beautiful work.

Now -- and this is for everyone -- yet another plea about posting photos: PLEASE DO NOT LINK PHOTOS FROM FOTKI OR ANY OTHER WEBSITE. Why? They disappear. If you post them directly to THIS site it will retain them. Broken photo links have made a majority of older threads virtually useless. Go back and see for yourself.

This has become enough of an annoyance and an ongoing problem that I am thinking about deleting all linked photos. I would like your input on this rather drastic step, of course. The only reason for it would be to force you to do something you should have done in the first place. And the reason it is important is that the material on this website is timeless so even the oldest material still should be visible ... but it isn't. We are not lazy about how we build models so why should be be lazy about how we share them?

All my photos are on my own website, so they aren't going anywhere.

Russ,

first - could you maybe start a new thread in the blue note room for that and uncouple the postings not relating to Barney's modelling?

Second - there'll be a lot of work to reload all the pics to your site. My pictures are hosted by buntbahn where they may stay until this site goes ...

Third - yes, you're right. It's completely useless to read posts without the images belonging to them.

Fourth - Deleting all linked photos means to destroy even more threads. Maybe you can block it for future postings?

Fifth - if you or the authors should be willing to "relink" older threads to your site in my eyes there would sometimes be a big improvement adding new titles to provide better search results. Imagine some kind of a modelling encyclopedia. It's a pity, too, that one cannot search for all/other projects one modeler has created for example. As long as I didn't miss anything.

Clarification: I don't want to go back and remove all past linked photos. That would be self-defeating. I just want you guys to upload all future photos to this site and thought that, if a photo is linked in the future, and I zap it, then maybe my repeated pleas would have teeth and you would upload it properly.

I also see no reason to re-post past images ... but I certainly wouldn't object if you did ... especially the missing ones!

It's just that I have asked repeatedly to stop linking images because of the loss of so many. If somebody can truly guarantee a linked image will outlast this forum, then go ahead and link. Past experience suggests such guarantees are as meaningless as my promising this site will be alive and well in 2070.

I'm not trying to be a meanie. Really. I just want to ensure our forum actually provides assistance to all of us and to non-members who may use it as a source of education.

To bad there isnt a medium where words and pictures can be placed on it and then covered in a harder more durable material.
Then in 100 years all one has to do is take this "thing" off a shelf and be able to read and look at the images.................

My issue are the filters at work.  I can see fotki and photo-bucket pics at home, but if I come here during the day I see blanks.  Really no issue from the office.  It's the IT guys who set it up.  Yes to uploading to here.  Although, I have to admit that I think some of my pics were linked from my site.
