Right I can see all of the Sony faithful on the Sony forum ordering this camera!

Enthusiast camera at 12K, don't think so! Another slap in the face to the long time a mount user!

makofoto: I've always liked Fotki and their look and services over the other major hosts. They've been very responsive to my suggestions and I'm proud to say that they implemented a number of them. I've had a few customer complaints about print quality, but typically "they're" prints have been quite good. They've always reprinted any problem prints.

I expect hosting costs to go up as files get larger and larger ... and expect to have to pay more for the space that we use up. Odd that people always want free stuff. I want good stuff! These companies aren't going to survive without making a profit ...

Hosting cost going up is one thing, locking folks out of their accounts and denying them free all ready paid for access is another.

They realy need to be reported to the FTC and the BBB of Canada and the Ministry there!

Many of us BOUGHT AND PAID FOR premium accounts, when FOTKI ran their sales. WE HELPED! My file size and uploading had basically slowed and was no burden on them.

Its sad that they will more than likely get away with this!

Remember FOTKI, what goes a round, comes around!

Jon Lemke: I've been a fotki member since 2001 and was disapointed to see this. Fotki offered a reasonable price for unlimitted photo hosting, which is the reason I stayed with them so long. With these changes there's really no reason to stay. Given that they obviously don't have the money to improve the site any time soon, I suspect it will slowly fade away. Fortunately I have plenty of other copies of my photos and my membership expires early next year.

Great reply by someone who joined to make this reply, very suspicious!

BryMills: I have to be honest and say I'd never even heard of them prior to all this kicking off!

I agree, when they practically doubled the cost of prints I told them this was a bad idea. They were always slow to respond for service, and have returned to that way now. I have dropped mine from 130 gigs to about 34 gigs, which will soon be lower.

There were other ways to accomplish this, I think they just wanted to switch to a "cloud" service and took advantage of us.

But they are the ones that will have to live with themselves!

HJW: I still use the site sometimes, though hate its early 90's looks.
Anyway - the reason of the financial troubles may lie elsewhere, in some patent trolling? The article says "litigation has already cost the company [Fotki.com] tens of thousands of dollars in legal fees..."

Thank you for posting that link, more info as to the failing website. Now I know for certian I wont be supporting this guy.

They (fotki) never could explain to me why my photos would have hits and views, when they were private and locked down.

So money will be diverted to legal efforts I am sure.

Time to find a new host.

Unfortunately, this is not the total story. WHat is failed to be mentioned here is the fact that MANY of us have PREPAID and bought years of service, membership fees for "Gold Premium" accounts for FTP usage and FREE UNLIMITED storage.

We were not offered, good geture refunds, because as fotki will tell you, they dont have too!

Having already prepaid like many others, there are far too many FREE accounts that need to be addressed instead of going after the payers using the "unlimited" contracted amount of space.

Great ideas, the for sale forum needs the ability to edit title after item has sold!

Thanks
