Any new info on MyAviation.net?

Mon Sep 26, 2016 3:35 am

It's been awhile since the long thread here about Myaviation.net. I was just wondering if there are any updates on its return? I'm not holding my breath but I'd LOVE to have it back up and running at least long enough to retrieve all my photos. I know it's probably not gonna happen but I just thought I'd ask.

I am also waiting for any news.. I have all my old photos on myaviation.net and my local backups got stolen :-/ so I am relying on DM to let us even for a short time or even for a fee to have access! I am sure I am not the only one here... please CREW yes give as a feedback that would be nice! Cheers from ZRH Fred

Hi All

MyAviation.net has been closed down permanently and it is highly unlikely you'll be able to get your photos back.

Hello PanAm_DC10,

I am sad to hear this.. thank you for your info anyway. What would be necessary for DM to give us hundreds of users who have their pictures there to be able to have access to them, even for a fee I would agree!

Cheers from ZRH,
Fred

I completely agree. And also the view stats please, if possible - it was quite satisfying to see one's photos get several thousand views..

Curious, why was it taken down?

Because it doesn't fit into their portfolio of websites they can market to advertisers. Too bad.

Is the new owner Verticalsope going to bring back myaviation.net or at least offer us to get (even paid) access to our photos stored there?

Nope, doubt it. As far as I know the can't be retrieved even if they wanted to.

Heya,

We have the domain but working on the images.

Once I know more I will update, lotta good stuff in the works.

Matt and Paul have really been making some nice headway for the screeners/crew and some suggested changes are in the works for the community.

Yes there is a chance it may come back it just depends on the status of the photos but either way VerticalScope have the domain name and can do with it what they wish. Hopefully they can get the images from Leaf Group/DM

Wow that would be awesome and hopefully they do get the images back! There really aren't any big aviation sites out there that allow uploading photos without having them rejected! It'd be nice to upload pictures straight out of the camera with only resizing and removing dustspots as the editing. I think photos in their original form have a lot more value than those adjusted for brightness, contrast, leveling and cropping. In the past with film and not having photoshop a lot more effort was put into the exposure and framing whereas with digital there's no problem to take a series of "bad" shots and edit them later as I've done on numerous occasions for A.net. If myaviation comes back I'll definitely upload my pics there not worrying about the perfect brightness/contrast adjustment, crop/motive, sharpening and leveling among other things!

OHHHH that gives me hope of retrieving all my lost photos from back then :-) Thank you John, Jeff M and Paul for keeping us updated on this!

Looking forward to start using airliners.net again if this happens of making it possible for us to have access to myaviation.net again!!

Very good news indeed!
