Del, I just copied and pasted my reply from the last person who asked. ;)



you must have missed all the "fun" ;)
(it wasnt actually very fun)
Here is the saga in a nutshell:

Shad sold MLS to Vertical Scope in 2013.
things were about the same for awhile..maybe a year.
Then Vertical Scope (accidently? we never found out) deleted all the photos and files of 1st class members with usenames that started with S through Z.
Then, a year or two later, ALL 1st class members photos, files and webpages got scrambled..
Then, they tried to restore them, but failed..file names got scrambled, so photos in old threads got replaced with completely different photos..which is what you are seeing now.
the photo of the cinderblock is some other member's photo, with your filename..we will probably never know whos photo it is, unless someone recognizes it.
this happened in every old thread that had linked photos from any members MLS storage space.

This was all a slow train wreck over several years..and its been now been over and done with for a few years now..there were multiple threads about it.

Here is my webpage on MLS:

http://1stclass.mylargescale.com/Scottychaos/

Fortunately, I saw the writing on the wall and moved all my webpages and photos off of MLS before that happened.. (new link in my signature)

So, how do you find your photos? you dont. ever. they are gone, they wont be coming back.
1st class memberships are now irrelevant and meaningless.
Sad, but true.

Scot

There is really no meaningful content left to delete..as far as I know, any webpages we had in our MLS space are scrambled:


http://1stclass.mylargescale.com/Scottychaos/


and any photos that do remain in our MLS might, or might not, be our own photos. There is no way to access any of it, there is no way to delete any of it.. Its all been dead and buried for a few years now..

Thanks Scot - Unfortunately, I had and old business website in my 1st class space, and it is apparently very alive and well, which causes some confusion. Oh, well. I guess I can live with it. It's a shame what happened to this site.

Del:

Perhaps you could attempt to contact the Admins for this site to seek their assistance using the Contact tab at the upper right of the page.

However, given history you shouldn't expect too much. :rolleyes:

User CP in the header above offers several edit options for various settings I'd start there.
