Re: Uploading facility of Card images

You can already link images into your post, but they need to be hosted elsewhere, on one of the online image hosting sites such as Photobucket or on your own website. You then put the full url of the uploaded in your post using the [img] button. This was discussed a while ago: http://www.postcard.co...

Re: Removed Posts (from Postcard Wants)

Just to clarify the situation here. The usage policy for the board clearly states " Links to websites or pages offering sales of items are not allowed.." http://www.postcard.co.uk/messages/postcard/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=621 If we allowed this to happen the board would just become flooded with posts f...

Re: Removed Posts (from Postcard Wants)

The ebay listing is nothing to do with me i just had a quick look on there FOR him and found it. So please leave it for him to see. You are forgetting your other delete...

Re: Perforations

We find they tend to get 'overlooked' in stock, even though they have interesting cards in them. So we're often tempted to split them - which as Kevin says was the original intention.

The 'Memberlist' now only lists those who've actually posted. It's yet another measure to prevent bogus registrations (or at least hide them from view). The actual number of 'users' is at 369 at the moment but we are overdue a cull of the spambot ones which should reduce this down to the 200 (ish) ...

I noted that they advertised in last years' BIPEX catalogue. Would it be an idea, since they are specialist insurers, to have a permanent link to their website somewhere on this website - subject to their agreement of course (although, I can't see them not agreeing, since it gives them more free ad...

Members on here have given me some good links to publishers and I am grateful for that. I think this forum is run very well,...

No most real photo cards do no have 'This is a Real Photo' on them. In fact the better ones don't... There are basically two types of real photo, those produced directly from an original negative usually by a local photographer often in small quantities and 'photomechanical' types.... Larger compani...

Re: £122 for a 1910 military Wiltshire card

Blimey. Just finished bidding for three postcards showing the South Midland Division arriving at and marching from Ludgershall Station in Wiltshire in 1910. I won two of the cards at "dealer prices", but the third went for a whopping £122, with someone else willing to go up to £120. It was a nice...

Re: £122 for a 1910 military Wiltshire card

I thought I would add something new to this slightly sluggish Forum! Moonraker Could that really be because Mike has moved the link to the forum lower down the PTA homepage ........ ? The links still in the same place in the index (next to top) but we had to put the poster ad for next years BIPEX i...
