Faceparty – Update to missing accounts

*** UPDATE to my previous post ***

OK, so now I am thoroughly pissed off.

Over the years (since 2001) my page had accrued an impressive 99,990 hits to it, and was once one of the most popular pages but yet Faceparty have still seem to have seen fit to randomly delete it as of this afternoon. 

Faceparty is clearly going down, sinking into administration, and I for one will be glad to see it go. Ever since they started allowing/encouraging some of the near-pornographic content from questionable 16 year olds that they were allowing on there I stopped logging in. And they wonder why they found that they were hosting a large paedophile ring on their servers?

They make bitter reference to some ITV thing, which to be frank I’ve not even heard of. Either way, they cannot deny the torrent of kids using their site for illicit purposes and putting up inappropriate images. Given that Faceparty have to approve each and every image on their server, they cannot then just turn around and say “well we didn’t know”!!

Rather interestingly, they have re-written the page that comes up regarding deleted accounts… someone’s digging a grave me thinks!

RIP Faceparty, alas you won’t be missed.

    I know this seems weird commenting on a 7 year old post, but bear with me, there is a reason. I was one of the many that were unceremoniously booted off Faceparty in 2008 even though I was still in my early 20’s and gained a reasonable amount of hits. It was to my surprise this evening that I saw my old profile was back in existence again, and I have no idea why. I came across it when I was looking up Faceparty for some nostalgia and wanted to see if someone had taken my old username (it was a common one) and was, again, surprised to see that it was myself that had it.

    I looked up one of my friends and he was reinstated on it, but even worse it had his adult pics back on it from his 20’s. (I know what you’re thinking ‘my friend’ *wink*, but I left all that for Gaydar… god I feel old). It may be worth having a look and seeing if you’re back on it. I’m a little annoyed Faceparty couldn’t even have sent a message to say that it was back (and I check my junk everyday as well).

    I know once it’s out there, it’s out there… but in fairness it was a more innocent time then when people posted any pic in 2003-2007 and didn’t realise the internet is one big permanent marker, Twitter and Facebook really taught us all that lesson, but dear lord give us a chance.

    On a positive note I found some old pictures of myself when I was 20 that I thought I’d lost! Now I can spend many a night looking at where I’ve aged. 😀
