  1. Hard to believe that the author of that site really meant to do any harm. Maybe it wasn't the 'right' way to do it, but I think the intent was to make a nice list of stuff. What is the harm in that? None the less, I think we should all get up in arms, get very huffy and collectively shun this nasty person and convice them that they have done nothing but waste their time doing this and that nothing good will ever come out of collecting and sharing information. Oh wait a minute, maybe we should add Google to that shunning as well.

    You obviously haven't bothered to read all the posts here.

    Narrina - I have been back to have a look and the chainmaille pages are not there at all at the moment. This could be because she is changing them, I will keep checking back.

    EDIT: all still there despite her telling me it was all done! :mad:


  2. Some images are linked which is fine but others she is hosting herself which is what I object to. Also many of the images are taken directly from the MAIL site which is illegal.

    No Martin it was brought to my attention by another mailler who's images were there without his permission. Anyway....

    OK I've had a response and it's a good one. I believe she is either removing my images or linking them instead of hosting them herself (which is fine by me).

    So I suggest anyone who objects to their images being hosted there emails her and asks for them to linked instead or removed.

    This is the email address I used suedebyga@gmail.com


  3. Here:

    some are linked which is fine but some are hosted by the person which is not ok. There are loads of mine and her info is often incorrect. Better have a look and see if there are any of yours.

    The contact form on the site didn't seem to be working but I found two email address for the person if you need to contact her.

    suedavis3@lycos.com

    suedebyga@gmail.com

    I suspect the second is the valid one.

    Really is it too much trouble for these people to just ask???


  4. I use a rotary tumbler and I use ceramic shapes and water to de-burr, for this I only tumble for an hour maybe two. Then to polish I use stainless shot, water and a burnishing soap (you can also use dish soap as long as it's not an antibacterial one) this can go from 2 hours anywhere up to 5-6 but that's not really necessary, 4 will usually be plenty.

    I have never known stainless shot to mark copper or sterling silver but ceramic shapes can if left to tumble too long.

    For more info on tumbling PM Kodiak http://www.theringlord.org/forum/Index.php?/user/831-kodiaknamaste/ he's knows all there is to know about tumbling.


  5. The light is a little wind up torch so it doesn't stay on for long. They are Black Rocks (hybrids of Rhode Island Red and Plymouth Rock) and Bluebells (another hybrid but don't know what of). Both hybrids are said to lay on average 300 eggs a year each.

    I think we are about a month off of them starting to lay.
