Re: In A Bit Of Estate

Thanks for clarifying that.

Your layout continues to progress well. Though I'm wondering if the name is a play on words. In which case I'd disagree.

Re: In A Bit Of Estate

Bill, Whatever 'host' and 'CDN' mean, Imgur's terms of service say not to 'host content for your website' and that is what you are doing here. The fact that Imgur give you suitable links doesn't mean they condone what you are doing, because we can use such links for other purposes, which don't contr...

Re: Thank you, Photobucket !!!

Hi Grum, my gn15.info still works for me. I haven't logged in for years. I could still login even when my iPad autocorrected my user name: first letter a capital, space after.

Can you still log in to the forum?

Re: Photo hosting?

Hi Tom, are you happy that we link from other forums to our photos in my gn15.info? I remember a few years ago this wasn't allowed. If we link, won't gnatterbox eventually have the photobucket problem: having to pay for the traffic? Or maybe the amount of such traffic isn't much.

Re: In A Bit Of Estate

Nice chunky proportions. Obviously to be a hard-working loco. But I'm concerned you are using Imgur to host your photos. Their terms say not to do this: "Stuff not to do ... don't use Imgur to host image libraries you link to from elsewhere, content for your website, advertising, avatars, or an...

Re: Sourcing Gn loco

Hi Jonty, welcome aboard. By mouldings, do you mean the loco bodies? A lot of people on this forum have made the bodies from cardboard or plastic. Have a look in the gnatterbox forum index at 'The loco shed', there is inspiration there. Steve Bennet/pepper 7 has sold nice loco bodies in the past, bu...

Hi Les, You need to be careful with pallets (and all wood packaging from overseas) that it does not have insecticide. There is an organisation called the IPPC, and all wood pallets and packaging imported into a country have to have and IPPC stamp on the pallet or crate. The stamp has the treatment m...

Re: Thank you, Photobucket !!!

Photobucket advertised/advertises itself as a photo hosting site, for storing your photos and so you can email links to your friends so they can see and download your photos. This is different to linking to photos from a website, like a forum. Also, Photobucket's terms and conditions say they can be...

Re: Thank you, Photobucket !!!

I don't like what photobucket has done because there was no warning and I think the cost is way higher than what hosting the photos costs them. On the other hand, I think we are being selfish and naive if we expected photobucket to serve up someone's photos for free and forever, even when that perso...

Bill: a link to display a photo on a forum has to end in .jpg (or .whatever). Those links you posted are the kind to send to friends and family share photos. I pasted your links into a web browser and could see your photos. Plus Google administrative content. Free photo host sites don't want to be u...

Yes,I'm angry they changed like this. I assume that the backlash will make them reconsider. Though we shouldn't expect to get things for free forever.

Cute. How big is it, and what is the range? Does it need to be line-of-sight, or will the IR bounce around model buildings?

Re: Kerluk's layout

Your new critter runs well, congratulations. I like the second of your two layout arrangements. If it was me, I'd extend a building or wall right to the edge of the layout, to give more variety. There's a layout I like called Potter and Klayman, see here 3/4 of the way down, http://www.carendt.com/s...
