I'm pretty disgusted to read all this whining and complaining. The facts are, many people added photos for years and never took the time to clean them out. If Auctiva had been charging them all along, you know they'd have been keeping house all along.
And now that they have to pay, they're complaining about having to clean up their own mess? Complaining that it's not EASY???? Give me a break. You made the mess, you clean it up. As a paying customer of Auctiva, I resent the time they're having to spend to respond to all this whining.
Just sit down and do it. If it takes you 3 hours or 3 days, that's not anyone's fault but your own. Either that or move on to another hosting provider.
First off I have been on Auctiva since around 2006 and not once did they say you should clean out your photos. If they needed us to do that they should have told us way back when. And if you want us to delete them then give us a way to delete the pictures. Not 100 at a time and then say how "easy" it is. Easy maybe...time consuming...oh YEAH!
And don't worry more will be leaving soon enough like me, and after we all leave and Auctiva is hardly making any money, they will have two choices...close the doors...or raise the prices. And if they close suddenly, who knows what will happen to all your auctions and their photos. Probably just be gone. Should be an interesting week for you. Without all of us, Auctiva will not make it. Auctiva should not be charging anything extra for photo storage until they come up with a way that you can actually delete your photos...any photos in one swoop. I have over 750,000 photos they told me. It would take me a very long time to do.
So all of us who don't have the time to do 100 photos per page, will do just what you have said and leave you with the higher prices or the doors being closed on you in the middle of the night because auctiva doesn't have enough revenue to keep the doors open.
Because at first they said they needed to charge me around $250 a month to use Auctiva, plus image hosting. They said there was no way around it. Then when people started jumping ship, then all of the sudden they found a way to make it work for $10 a month? Yeah OK. So good luck staying with Auctiva. I feel sorry for the auctiva employee that will have to delete my photos 100 at a time...since that is the only way to do it...once I am gone.
But we never took the time to clean out the photos because auctiva never said we needed to. Unlimited was the word they used. Well it's OK you change it and charge, but have a way for us to delete our photos other than some stupid 100 photos at a time. This is 2009, you should have a better way than that. This is ridiculous.
