SXC strikes again!

1. jimdaly981 March 2010, 16:15 GMT +01:00

Presumably because of a complaint from one of the users/uploaders, some of the topics in the SXC general chat forum have been locked with something like

"As this has long deviated from the original intent:


or more...

or less..."

it is being closed."

Remind me, someone, just what harm these threads were doing. I'm afraid it's slipped my mind.

Perhaps they were playing: "First to ban Dez wins" :P

But her photos are still there...

27. crisderaud2 March 2010, 15:46 GMT +01:00

Another lock!

Mike Wade wins the Last one to Post.

28. crisderaud2 March 2010, 16:09 GMT +01:00

And yet another lock!!

This time on the thread "Where did all the fun people go?"

29. weirdvis2 March 2010, 16:14 GMT +01:00

33% of all the main forum opening page threads have been locked. It's beyond parody. I guess he really does read this forum.

30. xymonau2 March 2010, 16:35 GMT +01:00

I wonder how many pacifiers he went through today.

31. jimdaly982 March 2010, 18:08 GMT +01:00

I don't know what you did, Dez, but you've really upset that rsylvan chappie.

And what is really annoying is that Mikey Aperture won the LOTPW thread - but only by default.

I'll bet we never hear the end of it though.

32. andrebogaert2 March 2010, 20:13 GMT +01:00

OK I have a thought, they don't happen too often, Who gives a F*** what SXC are up to..... This is the place to concentrate on..... RGB is an interesting and sane place to visit and contribute to, Oh there goes my grammar again....

33. happyture2 March 2010, 21:20 GMT +01:00

Come on Jimmy shake hands with a winner, I won you know, do you want to see my trophy.

34. fishmonk2 March 2010, 21:59 GMT +01:00

You got to admit it - It's great someone won that horrific thread...

@23 I think the way sxc works is most downloaded pages are refreshed around midnight so images belonging to Dez will stay 'till then... (?)

& if you do click a thumbnail they don't come up large - "No such image" shows. No worries.

They have a lot less images than months back.

Anyhoo, back on this side of the web, aren't things looking up?

35. crisderaud2 March 2010, 22:49 GMT +01:00

Yes things are looking up! We haven't lost our focus on what is going on here at home. The happenings over there are unprecedented and we have used this thread to point them out.

36. xymonau2 March 2010, 23:11 GMT +01:00

I haven't quite finished, but I will eventually. I can still search on a keyword and a whole page of thumbnails appears. I click on the thumbnails and the larger thumbnail comes up. They want to ban me, they remove my images at once, or pay rent. I have already informed them of this. So far they owe me a lot of money.

Thanks everyone who has commented over there and here. It makes me feel better.

The truth is that Getty paid chickenfeed - compared to it's yearly profits - for sxc. It was worth the money to them to either buy and use it, or shut it down, because large corporations are as much about manipulation and controlling society as they are about profit. The free use of the internet and free exchange of information and ideas, not to mention software, etc, is a thorn in the flesh of those who control most of the media for their propaganda. It's now the only place you can find anything true. Don't bother reading your newspapers. Nothing gets in to them that is not allowed. Twenty years ago it was better, but it has always been true to a large degree. Anyway, they genuinely don't care if it closes. If it becomes too much trouble, or if it ceases to drive traffic to iStock, it will close, and everyone from Getty will say "good riddance". At this point, so will I, because the place has become a desert.

Mike, I will discuss your "win" in the real LOTP topic here in the fun zone.

Dez I search on sxc for "xymonau" and I get 413 images (still showing at 8.30am aussie time) but only 290 here on RGB. Where are the rest? Have you copies? Will they be seen here?

38. xymonau3 March 2010, 0:30 GMT +01:00

Deb, I don't have my name on all the images. Go to "Photographers" in the blue bar at the top of the page. Click, and sort by alphabet. You'll find me. I have 982 images on sxc, and over a thousand here.

Can you download the larger images on sxc?

39. debsch3 March 2010, 1:09 GMT +01:00

no, if I click on the thumbnail it says error, No such photo.


... I can still see the mid-sized image on hover
and I can download the image if I know what URL to enter...


and here's the screen grab

Stunning picture by the way.

40. xymonau3 March 2010, 1:16 GMT +01:00

Thanks, Deb! You're a saint. That tells me all I need to know at this point.

41. Abyla3 March 2010, 1:28 GMT +01:00

Dez, are you cooking an special soup for them?

42. Undy3 March 2010, 2:02 GMT +01:00

Wow Congratulations Ap_ture, Happyture, Mike . . .

I thought I would never see a winner in that thread - well played.

Congratulations to all the fearless competitors who tirelessly competed for the glory of being the Last One to Post on sxc.

I wonder why rsylvan didn't take the glory of being the last to post as he locked the door?

Ps. The cheque is in the mail.

43. Undy3 March 2010, 2:06 GMT +01:00

2 and a half years and 13672 posts is what it took to be a winner.

44. xymonau3 March 2010, 2:16 GMT +01:00

Oh, don't encourage him! I tried to trick him into believing it continued here. Now you've gone and ruined it! Now there'll be no living with him!

Yes, Javier, but it's not the kind that you can eat. I have complained about Rob'sperformance as an employee, which is appalling. I'm hoping he will be IN the soup!

However, if you are feeling hungry, always happy to oblige...

45. happyture3 March 2010, 5:40 GMT +01:00

Oh Dezzie, And i trusted you, Now i don't, and never will, Undy,,,,Errr, you ain't signed the cheque right mate, Who,s Mr. M.Mouse.?

46. krayker3 March 2010, 5:48 GMT +01:00

is this the longest thread as yet at rgb ?

47. happyture3 March 2010, 5:58 GMT +01:00

Last past the post with 150 post is the longest yes! And i,ll beat you back there, ready steady (ive already gone "GO")

48. xymonau3 March 2010, 9:22 GMT +01:00

Oh, Mike - you didn't let him pay by cheque, did you?! Plastic trophy, rubber cheque - crinimal, it is. Crinimal.

49. happyture3 March 2010, 9:25 GMT +01:00

Tell me bout it, He,s a Undyhanded crafty blooming conman...
