Ficus, I had a card about a month ago from D S Aponte from his usual address which I answered to that address, it has not come back and it is too early for David to answer. I will contact him in Instagram and let you know.

I have the same problem as KS I tried to upload a running horse and it uploaded as a climbing a wall horse! and also a colour picture uploaded with all the colours altered, solarized actually. Any ideas why? 

It only happens in this site; IUOMA.

Comment by William M on September 19, 2022 at 7:02am

the last card i had from David had a New Jersey address so that's what i mailed him back to. i assume he's moved.

how to delete upload viedo  from my vedio 

Comment by KS on July 6, 2022 at 5:08pm
When I’m uploading photos they will upload on the wrong orientation. The original will be correct/vertical and they upload horizontally no matter the size and I can’t flip them. Is there a fix I’m missing?
Comment by Mark Johnson on June 23, 2022 at 6:56pm

I am not seeing that issue, Maxima. It may be affecting just you or only some users.

Comment by Maxima Strange on June 23, 2022 at 5:48pm

I haven’t been able to see photos on this site for 2 days. Is anyone else having that problem?

Comment by Heleen de Vaan on June 14, 2022 at 6:49pm

The amount of stickers to send is 150.

Usually I send him an original stamp design, a black and white drawing (postcard sized).
