They restored all my photos, so I signed up for a yr($1.67 a month).

I downloaded all of my content months ago and wont be using them again..even if it were to go back to being free.

how they handled this whole thing should be a lesson in what not to do to your user base.

Hopefully, they are dead and buried within a year for what they did to everyone. .

Wish I could. They removed the bulk download to download entire albums. Photos have to be downloaded one at a time now

I don't have an issue with them changing their business model, but they should have warned everyone first. And removing the ability to download albums really ticks me off. I got their survey as well and I blasted them. I was a paying member so I was grandfathered so my images are viewable but I think that ended in December.

How come they want me to blow 2 bucks then... Oh, probably because of the survey.

I have been using Chrome to retrieve pics for the Sportsterpedia for a short while now. But, a couple days ago, they magically appeared while using explorer. That morning was a no show and then sometime in the afternoon, they appeared.


I'm just basking in the carnage anyway. If I could just get a pic of one of their execs on the highway wearing rags with a cup and a sign that says "Can you spare a dime?", I'd probably shut up about it.

Yeah, PB was wrong x3. I haven't even checked if I really have access. They can keep the photos as far as I am concerned.
