Looking after old friends

  • Well Opera, what is your answer? My request was not SPAM, It was a genuine request for support.
    You owe us.

    WTH? They don't owe you an answer, they never did, principally when the request is to do free marketing for other sites.

  • I still have many unanswered questions about my.opera closing. Including how to contact previous contacts, people who I requested to be contacts on my.opera and people who requested me to be a contact on my.opera. I had made a few attempts using my.opera mail and also operamail.com to email these people to let them know I was on twitter and vivaldi with the same id as I'd used on my.opera. But all emails failed. Opera had previously deleted all my.opera email archives without notice and did not restore them despite stating archives would be maintained. So since my.opera email as well as operamail are not working to contact people how else can we contact people from my.opera? This question, and others, I have asked before both on the old my.opera forums and via email to Opera. All without replies. Thank-you.

  • Shandra, you are not misspelling the word, you're merely using an obsolete spelling. It's still wrong. So rong! :p

    That was a give and take, or a win-win if you prefer it put that way. The My Opera users created nearly all the content on the site and added value (spammers excluded) to Opera Software. Spammers included, the equation may have been different.

    Though I obviously didn't agree with the decision to shut down My Opera (there would not be a choice in changing software), at least the transition has been handled well. What String proposes above is also a part of that transition, bloggers and posters that grew up with Opera, and either could join one of the hastily opened sites, or be scattered for good. These sites are in the Opera ecosystem so to speak.

  • What a nice forum for a nice browser.

    Thanks to those who made it & work on it and such.

    Have a nice week.

    :3

  • how can I contact myopera friends?

    They're not. These are third-party forums/sites.
    For Opera Software to promote them, sending all their users there, they'd have to trust them fully to accept the unpredictability of these services changing their activities in the future. their TOS or even possibility of abusing the user's data stored on their servers. On top of that there's a possibility one of them will become direct competition already.

  • I suspect you've not been around long, rafaelluik, or maybe not touched on the old Opera social scene.

    Be cynical if you want to but don't assume others are.

    My request in the OP was quite straight forward, and if Opera is treating the Suggestion Box as a Suggestion Box and not a Recycling Bin I still await an answer one way or the other.

    Clearly those were all very important considerations prior to "sending all their users" to Google+, Twitter, Tumblr, and Facebook. To Gmail, Outlook, Yahoo!, and Mail.com. (source)

  • I see they created a "Lounge" in "General Topics" 🙂

    Please pay attention to the difference between explaining why they don't want to focus in social networking / blog features anymore citing well-known sites that do it better and a free advertisement as a form of a "highlighted link to The DnD Sanctuary and Vivaldi".

  • We should create a site for ex_MyOpera users. I still am looking for options to recover my contant on My opera becauwe I've just learned yesterday that it was shut down and I NEVER got eny notification prior to this to my e-mail address known by them (which is in my account to see - they have access to it! - still).

  • Hi Bioscoopfan, I think that in this case, you are quite lucky guy "2,320 URLs have been captured for this domain", please have a look here 😉

  • Any idea? ...or to contact Opera for solution... but hwere???? 😞

  • Oh, l33t4opera, thank you for Your kind and quick comment! I'm trying to have a look there!
