no notification about myopera shutdown

  • I believe I never received an email notification regarding the shutdown of myopera. Despite some folks belief that one notification is enough, surely something as drastic as this deserved a, say, once a month for, say, 3 months prior to shutdown.

    At this point I can only begin to imagine the nightmare awaiting me regarding trying to regain access to services I use that the login was my myopera email.

    Dear Opera - believe me, if I have an awful foul taste in my mouth from this, there are many others, and, ummm, word gets around. I used to tout your product loudly and proudly to all my associates. The OPPOSITE will now be the case.

    G'bye, enjoyed you while you were still cognizant of user satisfaction. pfffttt, gone (but making loud cries to any and all I can . . .)

  • I think exactly the same as you, they must do something...

  • Opera "did" do something. I received an email months ago informing me of the eventual shutdown of MyOpera on Mar.1st. There was a link to an article by one of the Opera Team informing us that mail, photo albums, blogs and forums would be shut down. Included with that piece (back in October) were a number of suggestions for mail clients, how to export one's blogs and one's photo albums. By my count that was five months that this message was posted with a sticky above the News Blog informing us of this. How much more do you need?

  • I ran into the same problem, and I'm pretty sure I did NOT get an announcement, or anything obvious. Now I'm glad I didn't start making more use of Opera.

  • They really announced it almost everywhere: there was a banner on each and every MyOpera-website, there were blog posts on each and every official Opera blog and they sent email to your contact addresses. If you didn't keep them up to date, it's your fault not Opera's.
    I agree, that they also should have sent an email to the myopera-address, but that's the only mistake they made.

    If you had actively used MyOpera in the couple of months, you would have noticed!

  • where i can find my opera blog??????

  • I believe it is Opera's responsibility to notify users on each of its platforms, not just a couple places - that means Opera shou dhave emailed those who used the email account. I used the email account for some storage, but didn't routinely use the other programs. One should not have to obsessively check up on an account in random places, just in case.....!

  • Regika, all my.opera blogs are gone... I'm very sorry, unless someone has saved it for you, there's no way you can find it back. Well maybe you can find parts of your blog by using this site http://archive.org/web/ and typing the address of your blog in it. Hopefully the internet archive bot scrawled through your blog and saved parts of it. Best of luck to you. Hugs.

  • Try asking people who moved to vivaldi.net . I know some blogs have been saved my.opera former community by but I don't know which ones.

  • I feel the same way. Granted, I haven't been active for a long time. But I had a lot of content on my blog that was rather important to me. All gone.

    And I can also not recall a single eMail notification. Possibly not Opera's fault (outdated eMail address, I can't remember), but it still sucks balls!

  • Use Google's cache to try to get your blog back by going to

    http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:http://my.opera.com/XXX/blog/

    Obviously replace "XXX" with your blog address.

  • Dear Opera I'm very sad to know that My Opera is closed, but with the closer of that all my photos and data stored in My Opera Community has been lost. Can anyone tell my how can I Recover My photos saved in My Opera Community Photos...?

  • where is my blog ... not received any notification .. how I can get my stuff? Did I miss?

  • where is my files gone ................. how i can get my staff??? did i miss those files ?

    please tell me how can i get back my files even for one time

  • But if a user didn't need to check the website because he trusted it to be held and didn't need to maintain it because all he put was staticc and nothing to be added so it was used like a gallery or showroom etc.?
    We still had an e-mail address known to the company to use it for at least 1 single e-mail! (At least we check it often! - and we do!)
    That would have been enough probably... but it didn't happen.
    that's what I can't call decency!!!
