as far as i know their backend CMS was custom coded by one of their co-founders, he's a skilled coder but their CMS was never meant to be scalable to such a huge number of files and users.

the only solution is a complete rewrite or porting the whole cr-ap to a bigger and more stable commercial CMS, but good luck with that ... not gonna happen anytime soon and as you noticed they're in total denial about performance and other technical issues ..

Thanks for that explanation.  I just removed my credit card so they can't auto renew. 



Thanks, that reminded me of something I was going to pass on for anyone interested. I hadn't realised/forgotten that they use auto renew until I got an email saying my card payment had been declined. Nothing sinister - I'd just had a new card issued by my bank (with a different card number). So for anyone like Mantis not wishing to renew -don't forget to remove your card details in good time from your account information. If, like me, you want to renew -don't forget to update your card details if you get a new one.
The second email was more chilling. It stated that as I no longer had a premium account all my images (barring 25) would be deleted from FAA in three days time. It suggested re-ordering my images so that the ones I wanted to keep online were in the first 25 positions of my portfolio.
With the free account you can have as many images uploaded as you want but only 25 available for sale at any one time. It doesn't seem to work the other way round though as the email definately said the excess images would be deleted from the site if going from paid to free account. If I'd been on holiday or not checked my emails for a few days, I would have found that over 400 images had been deleted.
Maybe they just say "deleted" when they actually mean removed from sale? I certainly wouldn't have been pleased to find all that uploading time had been wasted! Regards, David.

FAA could be better in many ways. But they do seem to sell. I joined in January and have got four sales so far, out of about 400 images. 3 of my sales are scanned paintings, one is a flower photograph. I have earned much more than the yearly fee already. I think it really depends on what kind of portfolio you have.

Good to know something is going on here :)
Can I see your pf at FAA, please? :) 4 sales in 4 months (with beginner) is impressive!

Only 3 sales this year, I was at 3 sales per month.
That's very no good info :(

My few sales might be just good luck, but two of them are very special art pieces that also have sold OK as microstock.
