FOTKI photo accounts?
Posted by mishalah on Saturday, March 09, 2019 10:36 AM

My Fotki account that I had for over 10 years has disappeared....along with hundreds of pictures.  I have started a new one, but am not going to add any pics until I find out what happened to the old one.  Have any of you had problems with Fotki?

Nope.

What was your old Fotki address?

Was it a public account?

Was it a free or paid account?

The old address is shown at the bottom of my posts.  It was a paid Premiuim account -- multi-year each time.  Not sure what you mean by "public", but by clicking on that account info on my posts you could access the pictures.  Since I just started a new account under the same username it might open to Fotki, but there's nothing in my new account.

That's a bummer. I have Fotki as well.

Are pictures you posted to the forum still linked, or do they show the broken link icon?

A really good question.  I found a discussion I had started several years ago about "Super Surface Sealer".  My last post has (still showing) the link for two pics, still in the highlighted blue.  When I click on them all I get is the "404" response and "That webpage NOT FOUND".    So, not the normal little dead man's square, but a link reference that shows active to the Fotki account....but goes to "nothing".  Thyat's even more confusing.

Contact Fotki.

If you have an current paid account, they should be able to get it fixed.

Good news....sort of.

 

Fotki found my old account and recovered some/most(?) of my photos.  There's a lot of "black death" Xs in the folders, but any recovered right now is a good thing.  In a twist, there is a photo of my best friend from school who was killed in Vietnam that I could not find anywhere else in all my files and memory sticks.  They have merged my oroginal account that was at least 12 years old  with my new one.  I'll try updating my link so our members can get in and see the pics if they want to. 

Thanks for your help, guys.
