Is there any way to do a massive deletion? It is very tedious to delete image by image. I would like to reupload a lot of my images but there are a ton that I do not want to bother uploading as the data was from my DSLR Days and I no longer have it.|

Christopher GomezHi Chris, no, unfortunately there is no bulk delete functionality. If you want to delete all your corrupted images, I can do it for you. Or if you send me a list of image ids (the random numbers/letters in the URL of the image page).

Well, I have uploaded everything from the past 5 years and before that there is a point of diminishing returns with the quality of the images and processing. I think I will stop for the time being and declare success.|
At the end of the day seems I have lost only 4 images from that time period… luck plus compulsivity. The 4 in question are Sh2 images and will add them back into the list in Expert Scheduler…. eventually they will come around again.
My first image from May 2012 is still there:
Funny it has 200 looks and zero (0) thumbs up… wonder why?
I am embarrassed by the processing of many of my earlier images despite some good data with a Tak 180ED. Looks more collumated than when I started perfecting things.
Luckily it looks like I started processing with PixInsight around 2014 and retained the working folders, so I think I can read them into the current version of PixInsight and use a more modern workflow on them…. we will see…. boy were those colors horrible!
I have just come into a copy of 3D LUT (3d Look Up Tables for color transformations/remapping). These images might be a good learning challenge.

Please delete my entire staging area, and save me the effort of doing it image by image. Thanks.

bobzeq25Hi Bob. It's done!

I know this is a long shot, but what about searching on the web archive time machine here to see if maybe it had taken a copy of your images for people who have lost their copies? - https://archive.org/

|You mentioned you "shoulda woulda coulda" hired a consultant to ensure your systems and back-ups are proper. i agree, but this is not the first catastrophic data loss on this site. Before I spend the time to hunt down my old photos, have you in fact now hired such a consultant to provide assurance that this site is professionally set up, backed up and as much as is reasonably possible guarantee there won't be another data loss?|

Larry CoutureHi Larry, this is the first "catastrophic" data loss. There was once a 12-hour data loss from the database that I could restore back. I wouldn't call it catastrophic.
I am talking to a couple of guys regarding getting expert advice regarding my configuration. I want to do it next week. I will update when it's done.

Today i got your mail about the new accountprices and accountversions.
In the same time i read about a data loss.
I have checked my account and found out, that all my uploaded images are gone.
I dont see a reason to spend more money to you. I wont spent any second to find my further uploaded images and reupload them again.
Astrobin was used as a safe for my best images. Do you really believe that i will trust you again?
Fortunately it where only be images.
I feel really slapped in the face, that you dare now to want more money in the future for this….
