I have just deleted my Photobucket account, having enough of all the agressive commercial feeding and that they blocked my free account by highjacking my pic's to force me to pay.

Been using PostImage for awhile that's suits just fine!

I will restore most of the relevant images in time or replace them by better ones. This may take some time though. If there is any specific image you want to see, please let me know by a PM.

Yes. I've decided to take action, too, thanks for being part of the Great Photobucket Purge! http://animaltoyforum.com/index.php?topic=2085.0

I'll wait a month or two before I start deleting any dead image links and I'll let everyone know here when the purge begins.

Forum business / The Great Photobucket Purge
« on: July 07, 2017, 06:01:39 PM »
Photobucket have disabled unlimited third party hosting and are now charging a fee (or a ransom).

Firstly, this means Photobucket is no longer a viable image host, don't continue to use it.
Secondly, it means the majority of existing Photobucket images on the forum are now broken. With so many users posting over so many years, this is swathes of images.

The solution?

It will be a huge undertaking but by working together systematically I'm confident we can rid the entire forum of broken Photobucket links. Therefore, I'm suggesting we team up to undertake The Great Photobucket Purge.

I suggest this to consist of two initiatives.

The first is a call for all members who have posted using Photobucket to transfer their images to a new host. There is a discussion about alternative hosts in the Posting Images thread on the dinotoyforum: http://dinotoyblog.com/forum/index.php?topic=173.0 (is there also one on ATF?) This involves risks (who knows which hosts will become the next photobucket?), but *anything* is better than Photobucket at this stage. After changing hosts, I request all users go into their old posts and replace their image links. There is no obligation to do this, of course - I realise the difficulties involved. However, I want to give people the opportunity to replace their old links prior to initiative two...

Initiative two will see myself (and any moderators willing to assist) go through the forum, thread by thread, post by post, to delete every photobucket link ever posted. I'd rather have blank posts than residual Photobucket spam. It might take months, but if we work as a team, little by little, we will get there.

Before I implement initiative two, I think it is important to give users several weeks to replace their images with the understanding that any remaining photobucket links will be removed by staff in due course. Every link a user changes will be a link a moderator doesn't have to delete, so I encourage users to take matters into their own hands to help out.

I also want to open this up for discussion before I implement initiative two. I'm aware that there are some photobucket-hosted images that still seem to appear on the forum. I'm not sure if this is because the users have paid the ransom, or if they haven't exceeded the number of third party images required to prompt the ransom message. My feeling now is that all Photobucket images should be purged, no matter what. Thoughts?

I'm sorry to say that all my pictures are gone due to Photobucket's new restrictions.
They want USD $399 from me to go on. I can't do that.
I don't know if any of the moderators wants to do that lot of work, but you should delete my posts, especially in the walk-around section, because it makes the forum quite unattractive with all those missing photos.
I was having a great time posting pictures and I will miss it a lot. To bring them back is too much work for me.
I quit. I'm saying thank you for the pleasure this forum brought to me and bye bye.

As on the DTF, I am initiating a great Photobucket purge. See: http://dinotoyblog.com/forum/index.php?topic=5884.0

I will create a similar thread on the ATF shortly.

Great models! But are they all the same scale? looks that the elephant is smaller than the other two, am I wrong?

I'll have to check the leaflets...

I've added a board in the reviews/walk-around section for PNSO:
http://animaltoyforum.com/index.php?board=50.0

I was sure I saw some walk-arounds of PNSO models already posted on the forum, but I could only find the rhino. Am I misremembering?

I have been thinking about others that can maybe have their own line. Perhaps one of us can go through and see if a particular manufacturer has been represented a lot and warrants a new section?

The following might warrant it:
Play Visions
Sega
Maia & Borges
K&M International (incl K&M Wild Republic)
Cadbury (Yowies)
Takara Tomy A.R.T.S. [although this last one could be combined with Yujin since the former bought out the latter and re-released some sets]

Yes, good idea.

A thread for me to share animal-themed videos on the Dinotoyblog Youtube channel. There probably won't be many of videos dedicated to animals, so it isn't worth creating a separate channel.

In this one I unbox some of the PNSO's 'Family Zoo' animals:
