Very well said, ColorMeNew...
I was sitting here reading all these responses and was thinking the same thing.
Things happen, nothing is perfect 100% of the time. Just because one pays for these services or the services are 'free' does not guarantee there will never be a glitch, issue, down time, ect.
If someone knows of such a site, that is where they should go. I think most all of us understand that if you have auctions ending now, this is most unfortunate. But, hey things happen.
I have used Auctiva for almost 2 years as well and have never had an issue with images or anything else for that matter. Likewise, this service has saved me tons of money in photo features over the past two years.
It's only temporary...it just doesn't seem that way right now! Relax & have a little patience. This too shall pass.
