Pbase. Get your act together.

I've almost had it. For some months now, I have been using a photo gallery website, Pbase. Everything was going brilliantly, so, after using it for six months, I felt confident enough to start using it as a place to store images for me to use on other sites (e.g. here). No sooner do I start linking than the people behind Pbase decide they have better things to do. Since the beginning of December, the site has been either down, slow or unresponsive. I can understand that sometimes shit happens, and that servers get overloaded, overheat and break down. That's life. What I can't stand, however, is the complete absence of any communication from the people who run what they describe as 'the best photographic hosting site on the web'. For the past few days there has been a whole range of problems: images suddenly disappearing, being unable to upload, server grinding to a halt, and now the site is completely inaccessible. All this time (and all the last time this happened - back at the beginning of the month), there has been silence from the people who take our money to host our photographs. Sorry... did I say complete silence. No, scratch that. Apparently all the problems are being caused by a sudden rush of people wanting to see images of the south-east Asia tsunami. Strange how no other photo gallery sites seem to be affected this badly - and just how does that explain disappearing pictures. I'm losing my patience, and may very well just purchase my own space on a server - there is a very good deal on the go just now: webhosting, domain, PhP, Perl, GCI, Etrader account, HTTPS, unlimited bandwidth, and 1.6Gb space for US$7.59 per month. That is worth considering.

Indeed - talk is cheap! What would it take for Slug/Emily to post a sticky news item on the forum/homepage with a full explanation? Nothing... Geeks are bad at comms, but hell...

The problem with switching is the great community that PBase does have... I wonder if smugmug would consider...

Love the Blog, i may have to try one myself Pbase is starting to really get me down a bit and it is affecting my event photos as people are having difficulty viewing them, i may check out the pro service from smugmug $99 for a year, no serious upload or storage limit plus i can assign my own domain name plus i can set up on line ordering albeit via a US printer. Well Pbase has until the end of the month before i take the plunge and move all bar my PAD to smugmug.
Keep up the good work

Well done on a nice blog Lusobrandane. I was searching for information on contact lenses and came across your post Pbase. Get your act together. - not quite what I was looking for related to contact lenses but very interesting all the same!

We're all getting ready for Christmas and it will soon be another year. I hope to be completing my studies in opthalmology in 2006 which includes a thesis on upcoming contact lens technology and improved eye health. I'm also planning to take a course on the excima laser, which should be fun.

If you do have a moment, please take a look at my new site on: Contact Lens Reviews .

A merry Christmas to you and yours! Amon
