Is there an explanation? (mods)
Yes, I tried to delete comments from the old thread to make it only photos. But since there were replies to comment posts with photos included pages later, it also deleted them. That was a limitation of the way post editing worked. So since it turned out to be a mess, it was easier to start a new thread for photos. The old thread (with whatever photos remained) was left up while photos were transfered etc. Then to avoid confusion, it was removed since the new customer gallery thread was up and running well.
I apologize for any missing photos - it was my fault they were deleted off the old thread so couldn't be transferred to the new one. It certainly wasn't intentional. Hopefully the owner will post the photos again. And if you do see a piece you really like here it's always a good idea to save it away from BTD. Crashes, massive failures (knock on wood) or website upgrades do happen so photos and posts are lost & in that case, something you like could be gone permanently.
