Oh, you mean that sauna building...

I wanted to restore my old sauna as it was before in its old place... It looks very traditional finnish sauna now. Painted with oldfashioned colors and paints.
My parents have a different kind of traditional sauna with uncovered corners. That is unpainted loghouse, about 200 years old.

It's gorgeous.  I aspire to that kind of quality.  My joints don't always fit tight.  Sometimes I have to finagle things a little bit.  wet and crush the joints a little and do some sanding, lol.  It looks good when it's done.

My problem is finding the old photos. I also don't know what photos were where. Unless I pay for a month and move all the photos to this server, all my threads will be ruined like so many others.

right click on the thing, then 'open image in new tab'.  This loads it on photobucket's site instead of through the forum, and you can see the picture.  Still a PITA.  Maybe the images could globally be replaced with iframes for the url which loads the whole web page in there but that would be a really clunky workaround.

I'm having the same problem, and my build thread looks like garbage.  Thanks Photobucket!

You don't need to pay them in order to download your photos to your hard drive.  When you download them, they are named with the random photobucket names so in theory you could upload them somewhere else and just edit your thread to point to the new server but keep the actual file name unchanged.  Still a lot of work.

I found a possible workaround on another forum and I've tested it on a couple posts of mine.  Apparently you can add the text ~original to the photobucket address right after the .jpg and it will load again.  So update your posts to say something like www.photobucket.com/blahblahblahblahblah.jpg~original and it will work.

THey will probably catch onto this trick pretty quickly but it seems to work so far.

What a PITA!!! I literally have hundreds of photos posted on various forums on the web and there is no way I'm going back to all my threads to fix them so I guess all my hard work to help out on different forums is also ruined!

Happy to help.  I bet it won't last very long, but I'm in the same boat!
