Bye Bye Brickshelf

You may have noticed a bit of news information that is making it's way around the Lego blogosphere in the past couple of days. That is: Brickshelf.com is closing.

Brickshelf has posted on the top of their home page in big red letters: "Notice: Brickshelf will be shutting down on 2007/07/31. Please save your files to your computer."

While at first the website was taken down with no prior notice, it has been reinstated until the end of the month so that users can download their content that they have hosted on Brickshelf.

In my opinion, this is a huge loss for the Lego community. I know that countless people have relied on Brickshelf in the past in order the host and share the files for their Lego projects. The question now is where to go with all of our images?

Although BS is back now, I thought it a good idea to link the Brickset forums - http://www.brickset.com/news/article.aspx?articleID=16
in order to publicise our plight...and the possibility of Brickpage.com
