As some have you may have noticed, virtually  all the ads I have posted links to in my series of threads are now inactive. This is due to a policy change in the image hosting site I was using. The images have been lost.


My only recourse is to erase all the affected threads and to start anew with another image hosting site.


I have been in contact with Robert,  and he has agreed to my solution.


In the following weeks the threads will be deleted and a new thread will be created to replace them. Due to the sheer volume of advertisements, it will probably take me years to post all the new links again.


No worries, I have most of the lost images stored.


I"ll be starting with the "Vintage Appliance Advertisements" series since it is the largest and oldest. 


And thanks everyone, for your encouragement throughout the years. It has been very much appreciated.

Isn't there just a way to edit these posts?

I look forward to those postings, Louie. I like to see your newest postings and the old ones I have seen are great. Thanks for them, to see them once again is nice since I spent nearly 40 years trying to figure out what a marketing client wanted before doing up a ton of markups before they said yes, because it had to sell their product or else. I normally will go right to your last post and up as it does take time for a thread of 100 to load everything with pictures.

I'm still looking for one I saved from the '50s and I will contribute it if and when it is rediscovered. (lost in my house hoard)

Unfortunately no Phil. You only have I think 24 hours to edit a post.

Thanks Tim, glad you enjoy them all. The "100" post limit is a compromise between those with a slower connection and keeping control of the number of new threads.

Sigh. Here we go again.

As some of you have noticed, hundreds of images from all my thread series have vanished. As in the first time, this is solely due to the images hosting service. Yes, that means I am going to have to rebuild most of the threads, a daunting task. Modern Living is the first thread series to be rebuilt. Robert has eliminated the old thread series so I can start again at part one. Eventually, most of the affected thread series will be eliminated so I can start anew. A big THANK YOU to the webmaster for all his help!

I may have some to send to you. I recently got 4 Kitchen and Bath magazines from 1976. They have a bunch of ads that I would love to share with everyone

Hotlinking ( displaying an image on a website by linking to another website to obtain the source data of the picture each time it is needed, rather than saving a copy of it on the website on which the image will be shown), is dying a slow death by a thousand cuts.

Be it copyright issues, bandwith/server issues, security or whatever many sites are simply putting an end to the practice.

Anyone who has a website can easily see via stats provided by their host where traffic originates.

In this new Internet world where Google and other search engine rankings matter dearly for many websites, you have no small number abusing hotlinks to get more traffic to their sites and thus (they hope) increase ranking. Eastern European and Russian websites are famous for such things.

Some places are now charging dearly for hotlinking images.

Several weeks back posted how Google images seems to have made it slightly more difficult to hotlink images found via searches.

In short for future the only way to ensure images remain part of this or any other website is to download, then post directly into whatever message. Then image will be on server and not rely upon hotlinking back to original.
