Keeping My Opera around would have meant that Opera would have to had allocate resources into it, resources that were (and still are) more needed in the browser itself.
My Opera was not making any money for Opera and only thing they were getting from it was brand loyalty and good will from the My Opera users.
My Opera was a really nice thing to have and I am sad too that it is gone, but I am not faulting the people who were paying for it for closing it down.
Personally, I find Facebook to be untrustworthy company and would never give them my information to sell.
Don't really see Vivaldi as Facebook clone, it is more like clone or child of My Opera. Vivaldi is not perfect (neither was My Opera), but they are working on it.
So, for now it's two options: either to use "gravatar" or whatever it countable, or to pick a simple image from the preset.. erm - set.
The first option is a bad one.
Nah, I know "it's great" etc. - still it's a bad option: it's like your dentist sends you to another dentist to first drill the hole, "then come back, I'll purge your canals", right?
But note that Gravatar account cannot be deleted http://www.accountkiller.com/en/delete-gravatar-account
So, we do have the other option. There are a coupl'a dozen preset images available, right?
A question. Can you consider allowing us to suggest additional images for the 'library'? By uploading such via a certain channel - like emailing to a certain box or something?
And if so, would you inform us what image format should they be?
http://www.archiveteam.org/index.php?title=My_Opera has a lot of information on how to recover most of your public data (blog posts, photo albums, favorites, old forum posts, etc.) Keep in mind that it's possible we weren't able to get a copy of your data in time if it was uploaded AFTER your profile had already been saved; we also missed about 3988 profiles out of the 16 million. Of course, private data (emails, files that weren't publicly shared, etc.) were not saved by ArchiveTeam.
Edit: In your case, take a look at:
Did you mean photo albums on MyOpera?
If so, the only way to recover the photos is via the "web archive".
Unless some Google or Yahoo! search can be done if your album(s) was/were specifically named and should happen to still be present in their cache.
Try typing your blog's name into the search field of one of the big search engines, and when results, try choosing the 'cache version'. Or other guys could direct you to that "webarchive".
He was away, Sgunhouse - it's excusable to say the least... It happens:left:
