INFO on the old MSN T&T pic site

Postby trawlerguy » Fri Apr 24, 2009 10:43 am

I had tacked onto another post but wanted to bring it to the front here.
I had a lot of our pics over on the MSN T&T site and was told that I'd get an email to move them to Multiply.
I set up an acct at Multiply.com but never heard another word...
Anyone know what happened there??


Thanks, Jon

I don't know what happened there but, here, at TrawlerCrawler.net, I'm going to get the photo albums up and running as soon as I figure out some technical issues.

Jon,

I will try to explain this as I understand it.

MSN closed the MSN Groups in Feb and any photos that were not moved prior to closing were deleted.

The email about Multiply only applied to the owners of the old MSN sites. The members of MSN sites would have had to copy and save (to their own computer) any photos they wanted. I owned a couple of MSN sites and the migration to Multiply was like having a garbage truck move your household. A total mess! I dropped Multiply for my own sites and moved to Yahoo groups. This phpBB site is better in that it is controlled by the owner (thanks Georgs!) rather than a commercial outfit like MSN.

Thanks to all for the info.

I had hoped that this would become "our place" to post anyway so will look fwd to going through our pics and putting them up here...

Having a good time in St Croix now, John
