    This Art Form Is Going Straight To Hell

    Some were. However that doesn't protect the integrity of posts here if yours changes any policies or is bought up by another outfit. Also doesn't help if you decide to reorganize your files, or your account is closed at some date in the future. I just see way too many threads that have become useless due to 3rd party hosting. Some of the people who posted 3rd party links haven't been back here for years, so can't be reached to fix their posts. Same can be said for some of those that have provided links to their own websites for patterns. Their website no longer exists. I was able to source the patterns for a couple projects recently where the fellow's site is gone, and it appears he may have passed away. As luck would have it, I had downloaded one, and other members had downloaded the other, so they are now both available to all members again. We really want to preserve the integrity of all threads for current and future members to access when looking for resources to help them. Tom

    This Art Form Is Going Straight To Hell

    That would be a good way to do it. There are several reputable 3rd party hosts that have gone out of business or changed their policies. PhotoBucket doesn't allow 3rd party hosting, and you will see that in several posts here. Tom

    @Spyros Please upload your photos here in the future. 3rd party hosting results in photos disappearing due to people changing permissions, moving files, deleting files, 3rd party hosts changing their rules, 3rd party hosts going out of business, etc. If you look through a number of the older threads here, you will find the pictures missing, and the thread may become useless to all future readers since they won't be able to see what it was all about. If your photo files are too large, reduce their file size to fit. 800 x 600 pixels in most cases is adequate. Smaller files helps people on the fringes of the internet as well, as they don't take so long to download. Occasionally I'm at a location where my download speed is so slow I have to walk away and wait 5 to 10 minutes for the page to load. Tom

    Separating leather

    Gently warm it with a hair dryer to soften the glue. Heat is the enemy of most glues and contact cements. Tom

    Something Does Not Feel Right

    The scam that has been running for quite some time is to over-pay with a forged cheque/document. Then ask you to pay the shipper, or wire the excess money back to them. When you do that, and then cash your cheque, it will bounce and you will be out the whole amount. Only accept cheques/documents for the actual amount. Cash it before you ship. Don't pay their shipper, etc. After about 2 weeks, when you are sure your document has properly cleared, then ship the object. Tom

    Facehugger mask pattern

    @mariuspirvu I had notifications of at least 3 posts. When I logged in to see them, they were gone. Then I see we had a server upgrade, so I'm sure they got lost in the transition. There were probably several more posts lost. (Old server must have et them!) Tom

    @Rosch22 Moved your post to leather sewing machines. You'll get more response here. Help wanted requires a moderator's approval for every post, and is more like the classified ads in a newspaper where people are looking for work or have work for someone. Tom
