@marshlife I checked the site and it is still free for those who want to- Browse/engage with photo stories and follow publishers but otherwise it seems that if you want anything else beyond that, the site is $19.95 a year. I didn’t realize that the policy had changed. I can definitely see your frustration. But please keep in mind that the site has come back to life (although we never heard from Ram) and there are a ton of great people posting here on a regular basis, so hopefully you will continue to stay. Looking forward to reading more of your posts.
Schouldn’t we be informed by e-mail about any changes terms, regulations …?
Btw, did the list of members (alphabetical order) exist before?
Actually I’m not “PRO” - I was thinking about becoming a paying member, but the instability and the fact, that asked questions won’t be answered didn’t encourage me to take the next step.
Same here,I know privacy policies are changing all around. But for other changes a word please
I can’t find the information about fees and different kinds of membership anymore …
@strohschneider-laue I had to go (pretend) through the process of joining in order to see. Here’s the captured photo
@strohschneider-laue How did you find that list? Looks like that list dates back to 2006 before Ram took over ( 2015) I am not able to find myself nor you on that list.
after the last discussion about changes (fees, membership) I searched systematically. I can’t remember, but I was surprised not to find information about fees. Thanks for the screen shot. So, one day soon, I won’t be able to post pictures anymore, because I don’t have a pro account. I hope, I will get an email BEFORE my site will be shut down.
It seems that something at the the start/home/index/information sites has been changed. Maybe the list is old, you are right about that, but it’s strange, that the list still online.
Hi Sigrid/Peter : There was an information in the forum from Ram on the 02nd of july17 concerning the Trial/Pro accounts.
See here: Please Read: Important Upcoming PhotoBlog Updates
(Chapter : Experimenting with PhotoBlog(Pro) trial accounts)
For me that is sufficient, because I hate to read 200pages of terms & conditions.
In my opinion, that does not sound like your accounts will be deleted or the changed into ‘None-pro’.
As far as I can see the free option is stil there and will not be changed. We will see
I don’t think anything will be changed, Ram doesn’t seem to be doing anything with the site at all, including answering questions or giving updates.
ok, ds sieht mal nicht sooo schlecht aus. Ich habe nichts dagegen meinen Anteil zu zahlen, wenn ich etwas benutze - aber dafür muss es auch benutzbar sein.
@strohschneider-laue Sigrid I believe you are grandfathered in so I don’t think it will affect you ( I hope) “This experiment will not affect free us ho have signed up already.”
@heike I am reading it the same way you are…all already in are not affected.
Is it just my computer or is Photoblog down again?
It comes and goes. I was able to post something, but I need to resart the page 10 times to see something.
Too hot to fight, dear Sigrid. I’ll be back later!
I can’t get it to load either - so frustrating!
Maybe it’s because of instaliing a “challenge button” … Yes, I know, it won’t be the reason, hope dies at last.
Seems pb is down or extreme slow. Somebody else having problems?
Yes looks like the host is not responding and it times out.
