Why can't I get a response from Photo.net?

  1. My week old account is still "pending approval" and I cannot make any of my photos public. There is a "contact support" link that brings up a blank page on my computer but brings up a fillable contact form on my iPad that I filled out but got no response.

    On my IPad you can contact them directly at "contact@photo.net" I have tried 3 times on different days and get
    "Your message wasn't delivered to contact@photo.net because the address couldn't be found, or is unable to receive mail."

    What is going on? Is this a site run solely by a computer? I don't want to commit to putting all my portfolios here because if something goes wrong, I seem to have no recourse.

    It's a shame really, because I like how this site is organized and the balance between good photographs and a good community. I especially like that you can ask for and give feedback.

    Before I give up, can anyone help?

    No, actually not, unfortunately, things run as they do in respect to approval, the volunteer Administrators and Moderators cannot influence timing I would suggest you acclimatize yourself to Photo Net and NOT load your portfolios until you have evaluated the performance of the site and weighed benefits against less desirable factors. Sorry I can't offer more.
  3. Sandy, thanks for the reply. If this is just normal because the site is volunteer run, then I can live with it. I just couldn’t figure it out. Do you know why the contact@photo.net bounces?
  4. Someone, a moderator maybe, needs to create a sticky that, in the words of PIL*, explains that This is not a Website

    * Public Image Limited

  6. Four WEEKS after creating my account, and after diving up and trying yesterday to see if I could delete it, this morning my pending account was finally approved and all my photos are public. Go figure!
