1) unfortunately these days names on the internet are incredibly limited and unless one wishes to pay out 1,000's of pounds there is little other choice
2) we will never apply a limit on daily uploads. Content that isn't viewed and the users that upload them will ultimately sink to the bottom of the 'pile' this effectively filters content subjectively by the platforms users tastes rather than us imposing what is good and what is not
3) see (2)?.

Source Youtube clickasnap page.
Not sure what (1) has to do with anything

As for (2) the users of the platform were consulted and as you well know this was brought in to stop the proliferation of utter rubbish being uploaded (including pornography dumps) something i was quite strongly against at the time but something our users pushed for Tony. You can't foretell the future, I shouldn't have made that statement perhaps but i stand by my decision that bringing in the limit made the platform a better place and helped retain our high quality imagery, and as of yet we've had no complaints. I'd understand if i'd made it 7 a week but it's not it's 7 a day more than enough for anyone

As i have always stated if you want the views you have to work for them, same as any other platform

As for not liking our contributors that's quite amusing, and not sure where that has come from

As for forum activity growing significantly we certainly don't expect that, unless a user has an issue why would they post in here?
The concerns you're refuting are from valued members who have spent a considerable amount of time and effort putting together portfolios on your platform. Many highly talented photographers have left and the overall standard has certainly diminished.

As for the rather arrogant remark with regard to "working for views" ... I'd be more than happy for you to accompany me on one of my 4am shoots after five days of 100 mile daily commuting, along with the painstaking post processing which follows. Now, that effort isn't solely for CAS but it's becoming clear to me that my time would be more appreciated elsewhere. I suspect that's also how Tony feels.

The person who made the remark I quoted is one of your most esteemed contributors. It's unprofessional to mention his name here but that was a statement which concerned me.

I appreciate the platform is fluid and it's subscribership constantly changing, however I believe that the concerns here raised by myself and others here who have invested a considerable amount of time to this platform are simply being valued with an astonishing degree of ambivalence.

One thing i've realised after all of these posts is that as of yet, i still haven't been informed as to exactly what these concerns are..?

if it's some users having lower views than when they started which was when the platform was tiny i'm not sure anything can be done about that i'm afraid. Although i'm certainly open to suggestions

The fact that you've lost so many excellent contributors and overall viewership has diminished for many people.

I think I've expelled enough energy getting my point across and my own decision not to invest as much time here has certainly been proven to be a wise one.

Hi. Just uploaded and posted a few more pics but can't see or find any of my albums or previous uploads. Haven't posted since July, but where have all my uploads and albums gone? Any help and advice would be much appreciated. Thanks

Hi Tom. I am not a pro or seller, thus it mind that I cannot sell my photos? Also, if some one decides to do so, how do I know that it happen?

Hi Jaime,

To be able to sell your photos is only £3 a month of £28 a year

Dont know if these are just me but the site seems slow again, general loading of all pages.

When looking at an image i'm getting what looks like a page refresh, the image loads then a very quick flash and reload.

Appologies if I have already asked this but when looking at any image how are the related images sorted? Clicking the next arrow brings up the image in uploaded date is that right? Can the related images be organised the same way so when looking at a main image you could see the next one in list.

Thanks

edit: I still feel that when clicking the next arrow through an album it would be better as a carousel feature when reaching the end and not going onto a completely new album/picture or just stop.
