Okay, so my brother has run a fix for some table malfunction. I tried editing and it worked right. It may not fix everything, but hopefully, it will fix the editing, searching and deleting problems.

:hyper: worked ok for me today when editing :hug2col: to brovver

I am no longer getting emails for the topics/forums to which I'm subscribed or when I get PMs. I wondered if things were getting caught in spam, but there's no sign in my spam folder. I have been rummaging through the settings in the UCP and can't find anywhere I might have inadvertently unsubscribed, but I can't actually find anywhere that gives me that option.

1) Is anyone else having this issue?

2) Can anyone tell me where I might find the setting to turn said emails on and off?

3) Help!

to be honest I haven't been getting notification for ages, but then again I'm on all day so just keep refreshing.

I haven't been getting notifications for PMs for a while now. I don't subscribe to anything so I can't say about that. I tried turning them on and off but it didn't change anything.

This has happened in the past, and there doesn't seem to be anything to do about it, at least, not that any of the staff ever could figure out. I wish I could tell you something to try, but unfortunately, it's an occasional glitch. In the past, when it happened, it just suddenly started working again.

Okie dokie - at least it's not just me, so that implies I haven't gone and messed up something without realising! Thanks for letting me know!

yeah, just heard all the pics are gone. and they want 400 bucks for me to put them back up. Who do they think we are, millionaires? uhm, no.

Post subject:  Re: Are you having any troubles with the Forum?

i am thinking it may be related to how many pics you have stored. I only have a handful and all mine are still visible.

I get the impression that eventually, it will be no third party hosting, regardless how many pictures you have. Those of us who have a lot have been affected right away, but the pricing structure they give restricts third party hosting to the $400 dollar option.

And yeah, I don't know who they think they're kidding, imagining that all their customers are going to shell over four hundred bucks, especially the way they did it with little notice and with their mobile apps no longer even allowing you to download pics. I imagine they are haemorrhaging customers like crazy right now.

If TtH is anything to go by. People are moving in droves to Tinypic, Imgur and I believe Flickr has been mentioned as well. Of course, for those with many hundreds of pics, this will take time and a lot of hard work and some won't have the time or heart for it. Just having THAT experience would be enough to make me move my stuff, but it might also make me gun shy about trying it again. I need to dig out my password to my photobucket and download my few avatars/banners and put them up elsewhere before they vanish.

Those of us with stories illustrated by long gone friends are just gonna be out of luck, I suspect.

I used to try to download a copy of illustrations in my stories after a brief glitch made them all vanish a few years ago, but i got out of the habit. Unfortunately. If any are left, I am gonna have to grab them...

Sigh.

I haven't been shut down yet, either. If it happens, there's no way I plan on paying for it. I'll either go without or I'll find another option.

There are so many other sites, I think they may be shooting themselves in the proverbial foot.

I always save banners if someone makes them for me, and suggest that others do the same. If you're linking from someone else's account then you're always reliant on someone else's upkeep, and it's just not worth the risk. I mean, I've made most of my own banners so it's not been an issue, but for the sake of downloading a picture to a local source and having it on your own account... it's a very small hassle which saves issues in future.

I have a three hundred thousand word story that a friend illustrated for me... it's 100 chapters long and probably has 60 illustrations. Sadly, i don't have most of those saved, though I have a few.

Some of the ones with just banners, I do have.

Sighs.
