The decision by Photobucket has essentially destroyed this post!!!!!! Also plenty of others that have valuable information -- can not believe that they didn't somehow grandfather these posts in!!! So there is no way I will pay what they want. Ruth

I agree. I love to look through old threads for reference and now so many pictures are gone. It stinks.

Unfortunately, many posts are ruined by photo bucket. :(

I used to go to the search feature here on DF and be able to type in the name of an artist, or of a sculptor, even pull up old pictures of particular babies. It was good to be able to do that, nice to be able to look up... for example... if you buy a baby you really love painted by a particular artist and then you search it and could find pictures of other babies done by the artist. With 4 of my babies, I was even able to go back and find old pictures of them and info on them from previous owners.

For the most part, that's all gone now. :evil:

I can understand photo bucket changing their terms and companies do it all the time. But, seems to me that it may not even be legal what they've done, so quickly, with zero notification, BOOM! Even if it is legal, Photo Bucket is done for, as this has impacted so many websites and people are not happy, therefore leaving in droves.

Whomever is in charge over there should be fired. Any person with common sense realizes that the human mind does not work that way and will not accept such an abrupt and gigantic change. Just ask your internet or cable/satellite tv provider. They basically "rob" their customers, the same as PB has just tried. It's just they are way smarter about it and only change terms and increase a little at a time so it is not noticeable... like the analogy with the frog where if one throws it in boiling water the frog jumps right out but if you put it in the water and then heat it slowly to boiling the frog is a goner because it doesn't notice anything wrong.

Oh well. PB may have done us in and for sure they have many others also... including themselves! :roll:

What a shame :(

I think PB should have honoured all old pics. It has made a right mess all over many forums

I too loved the search here for looking at different sculpts

The loss of all the pictures and research possibilities is the saddest part for me -- all those pictures that we could look up!!! I am going to try and replace the pictures on this post but it will take some time and hopefully I will be successful. Ruth

I have been working to recreate the pictures in this post. There may be errors, if so please let me know. Also if you have pictures that I lack that would also be helpful. Thanks for your help in advance. I will continue to add pictures as I have time. I downloaded all my pictures from Photobucket and now am putting them on Imgur. There is no guarantee that this free site will remain as such or at least reasonably priced -- I can only hope. Ruth

:heart: I LOVE this thread, Ruth. I am so glad it was bumped up. Eva Helland was such a wonderful artist and a very wonderful, kind lady. I miss her terribly, but she lives on in her beautiful creations.

I feel like Joy does. I could be perfectly happy with just my sweet Melissa. My very favorite sculpts of hers are Melissa, Nikita and Elora. They are such a beautiful trio.

:foryou: Love, Dion

:D I LOVE that photo, Ruth. I haven't ever heard of Antonio, which makes me think that he might be an OOAK?? What a wonderful Eva Helland collection!

Thanks for letting me know Antonio is an OOAK. I found the photo on the internet and have no idea who has that collection. Let me know if I should take it down. Ruth
