ServImg Uploader Change Of Terms of Use (Please Read and Comments)

Post by Cassini on Tue Jun 05, 2018 4:04 pm

Hello Capture Artists Smile

Firstly thanks to Bic Basher for raising this issue with the uploader only allowing just 3 captures instead of the maximum 25.
Yesterday I raised this problem in Forumotion help admin panel and I have opened something that has caught Forumotion on the back foot.
They knew that ServImg was going to reduce all free forums to use the uploader with only 3 captures instead of the maximum 25, however they didn't know when this would happen. This change of terms of use does affect many forums that like ours does do bulk posts.

I have been advised that if I want to I can upgrade the ServImg to their Pro account which costs 90p per month to have to continue to upload 25 maximum captures. I would like your feed back please Smile  In April Forumotion have issued three new forum packages which includes one free forum and two other that I would have to pay for.

1 To stay as we are, and just upload 3 captures per Post Question

2 Just upgrade the ServImg account Question

3 To upgrade the forum Question

There is the other option of reverting back to other picture uploaders, which I am very reluctant to use in light of the many problems that forums have had with these over the past two years.

I hope this has not put you off this forum Question

Regards
Cassini Smile

Do you need any contributions from us to keep the forum uploader at 25? 3 isn't good enough IMHO.

Thanks Bic Basher, but there is no need for that I pay more per day parking my car for work at a NHS hospital, than what it would cost per month for a uploader upgrade. However over three hours and still waiting for confirmation that the upgrade has been completed. Tried just a minute ago and still stuck on three captures. Rolling Eyes

They may have an influx of upgrade requests from forum owners, but they should be faster than this.

Have to say its rather poor by their standards, they usually give a reply after a couple of hours let alone over 24 with no reply

Sorry for the delay on getting back to you on this matter.
My name is Ape one of the admin's of the support team.

The problem is we are not the host of ServImg we pay them to host the images for us on our forums.

I have sent a ticket on to our head office that will then send a Email to ServImg to find out what is going on with your account.

Please Note:
when you Upgrade your account it is only your account that will be upgraded not the all the members on your forum. each member has the right to upgrade their own account.

Thank you for your understanding.

APE / Bob

I've just upgraded to Pro myself on the ServImg site and works fine.

When you use the uploader, it should say 'ServImg Pro' at the bottom which shows that you're a paid user.

The good thing about PRO is that visitors will be able to see your work at full resolution, so my 1920x1080 caps are that and not downscaled as with free.

Proof that it works on this thread here. https://reportercaptures.forumotion.com/t1326-uk-jane-merrick#5314

Thanks Ape/Bob and Bic Basher Smile

It must be just my account that is the problem, unless I register using a different email address Question

I have successfully registered to ServImg Pro,using a different email address, however my screen captures  you have to copy and past the links individually  Embarassed I cannot work out how to get the bulk links for the full set, also if you use the Image Uploader in the Editor you can only upload 3 captures only. Therefore you will have to open your ServImg account to upload the full set of captures  cyclops

Scroll down for the new capture
