This thread is full of entertaining grade-a train wreck insanity.
Past a certain point I just get embarrassed or sad reading all this, so I'm glad you're still having fun
Mods can I get a lock for a week on this thread please ?
This is going nowhere and I’ve had enough.
I don't know about locking, but a certain name correction is just about the best thing I have seen on SB this year. Thank you very much eyes in the sky (you know who you are).
Got some great news !
Fujiwara San is in charge of all of the resculpts going on.
He’s half way done with the first of the two DX heads. He’s working on the skull king head and full insect and hopefully will be finished by the end of the month.
Also, priority has been placed on getting the Dx mold moved fist to Dennis. So hopefully this means by the time the mold moves the new Dx heads will be done and ready for pulling.
Check out the progress so far, I couldn't be happier how close it’s to the original.
Guessing we'll see this dude around Christmas time? I'd love to see him in a Santa suit
Can someone recommend me a good photo hosting site.
I hate photobucket
Just use Flickr bruv. Lmk if u need any help.
@Rich seconding Flickr. Site has changed a lot but still legit.
If using on mobile:
-Click on pic in photostream
-Switch to 'desktop site'
-Click download icon (above "Taken on date") / View all sizes
-Choose img size to share in menu
-Long press image / open in new tab
-new tab contains your SB-friendly link
Alternatively, lot of people seem to like Imgur. I use Tinypic for the random stuff. Many link straight from IG these days.
Fuck Photobucket and the irreparable damage their money-grab did to this board
I wonder if you can share on here with google photos. That's what I use as my backup these days
I use IG for most and Flickr if I want high res
Google photos was working on herehfor me for awhile. It didn't work a couple times and I stopped using it on here. But that's still how I backup all my photos, it's a great product.
Can we please rename this thread "MVH Flickr, Imgur, and other Image Hosting Demons"
Could you please fuck off ?
Thanks guys yeah photobucket is just a mess. I guess I’ll just pick one of the others.
I though by now there would be a better site but it’s still the same ol image hosts it seems.
Thanks for the help !
Ah geez how am I going to win an MVH lottery now... gonna have to practice my papier/reck/scissoring skills
Second for Imgur, never had problems myself. Been watching your recent sculpt WIP's you've been posting and it's super inspiring stuff! Thanks for giving us a peak into that world.
I've been having jackshit luck with the sludge demon drops this past year. Did anyone successfully manage to nab one today? Had one of those beautifully painted orange translucent ones with the awesome sprays. All ready to go at check out. Paying at PayPal when it kicks me off from completing the purchase and pretty much gives me the middle finger. Good thing I didn't decide to try and make an off day revolving around this drop today. The only upside to this story is at least I was able to know what time things dropped without guessing.
Yes... well, not exactly. I scored one of the Crazy Eyes Bernies, but I believe those were the first to sell out (other than the one off sets). I am really excited and grateful to get my first Bernie.
I am sorry you weren't able to score. On my side... I had to do this drop from mobile since I was out with my GF's family, so I am grateful that the drop was at a specified time. If it was a drop window I couldn't have even tried. I am used to doing these type drops on PC, but using a Note 8 with autofill and logging in to PayPal before hand seemed to make it fairly painless.
Can't wait to see it in person!
It took fifteen seconds to buy a Bernie and have PayPal tell me it was no longer in my cart. By that time everything else was gone. Ah shop drops. Maybe I should have gone for the steampunk version. But that glittery orange was too pretty
Same here with Sludgie ... had the orange one in cart & too slow at PayPal ... sigh. Not complaining ... I don't mind getting a "sorry none available " message but it does seem silly that in 2018 , if you're lucky enough to get a item in your cart , ... should be able to pay for it. Guess doing away with the "10 minutes to checkout" is causing this?
Days of the 10 min cart hold are a thing of past. It seems Bigcartel made this change and shop owners can't revert back to the old system even if they wanted to.
Yes, it was nice having that sense of security (when quick enough to add to cart) of being able to leisurely go through the checkout process.
On the flip side, no cart holds alleviates the frantic F5ing for 10-20 mins waiting (usually in vain) for a hostage item to get dropped back into inventory.
Hit or miss, the dust settles quick, and it's a plus being able to carry on with your day when it does.
