Help make Swifty's ad-free!

Posted by jedimario (Admin) at Yesterday, 2:18 PM. 10 comments

Hi everyone,

For years we have had advertisements here at Swifty's Garage. At times, these advertisements have gotten fairly intrusive, and they have always been annoying. Swifty's Garage staff has been looking into ways to remove them, and we think we have a solution. Introducing the Swifty's Garage Patreon!

Patreon is a crowdfunding platform that allows organizations to raise funds for various projects. You can read more about it here. Basically, you can use it to sign up for a monthly donation to your chosen group. We've determined that this will be one of the easier ways to raise the money we need to completely remove ads from Swifty's for everyone, logged-in members and guests alike.

To reach this goal, we need about $40/month. This isn't a huge amount for a board this size to raise, and even a single dollar a month will go a long way to getting rid of ads, so every bit helps! We hope you'll consider helping out. Short of that goal, we'll remove ads as long as we can, but they may not be absent all of the time.

Patreon will also allow us to provide exclusive benefits to supporters. While we don't have anything specific figured out yet, you can be sure that will be something in the near future! Please take a look and consider contributing. You can view the Patreon page here:

Help Vote Matchbox Into The Toy Hall of Fame

If the above link doesn't work, the direct link is:


You can vote once per day per computer. Let's get Matchbox into the HOF where it deserves to be. Right now PEZ is destroying the competition with 35% of the vote (Whiffle Ball is second at 26%, My Little Pony a distant third at 14% and Matchbox is way back in fourth with a mere 7% (nothing else is even close, surprisingly not even Transformers). And Pez isn't even a toy! Let's spread the word far & wide and reverse Matchbox's fortunes.

Photobucket Hosting

Posted by jedimario (Admin) at Jun 30 2017, 10:45 PM. 19 comments

As many of you have discovered, Photobucket has recently modified their pricing structure and removed third-party hosting abilities from all but their most expensive account type. This change affects all of their existing content, including many thousands of pictures linked here at Swifty's Garage. All Photobucket images belonging to members who are not in the highest pay tier will now appear as this:

Posted Image

Usually here at the Garage, you have a limited amount of time to edit your posts and topics. We are temporarily removing this limit so that you may go back and edit posts affected by Photobucket's change should you wish. Tentatively, this limit will be lifted for one month. During this time, you will be able to go back and change the image links in your posts to new ones that work. We know this will be a tedious process, but we wanted to make it available. Unfortunately, there's not much else we can do.

For discussion on the issue and alternative services, check out this thread.

To recover your images, follow these steps:

1. Locate the post you wish to recover images from.
2. Click the Edit button below the post.
3. Copy the full URL between the IMG brackets.
4. Paste this URL in a new web browser tab or window.
5a. Right click the image you want to keep and click "Save as..." or similar. This will allow you to save the image to your hard drive like any other file.
5b. If you are logged in to Photobucket, there may be a "download" option somewhere on the page. I have forgotten my credentials so I can't check for one.

EDIT: We have several members whos Photobucket accounts are still allowing third party hosting. Not sure of the reason for this, but Photobucket itself claims that this should not be working.
