I bought a CISS (Continuous Ink Supply System) from them for my printer. When it arrived there was ink every where in the package, the instructions were incomplete & abysmal & I had difficulty settting it up. I contacted them for help & was promised complete instructions plus a youtube video. This was in September 2014 & nothing has come of this empty promise. Despite numerous emails & messages on their online chat I can't get help. I want to return the system (they promise 12 months return with no questions asked) but I can't get a reply re returning the system. I can't get any reply at all. NOTHING.
I have been polite to them but they just shut down the online chat once they realise I have a problem.


I'm a confirmed photoSIG member (since Jan/03) so have seen it's ups & downs. The good news is there; s a new admin who is not so confrontational & has plans to improve the site through member involvement. Robert has some vision for the site & is polite but firm. I think his influence might result in a new flowering for the site & photoSIG is the only photography site I'm aware of where you're likely to get a decent, helpful critique of your photo instead of Flickr fluff. You mightn't always like the crit but that's good, it makes you think critically about the points raised. Of course not all crits are great, far from it, but there are some good photographers & critics on the site who really put in.
I had my run ins with Sheena but in her defense I would say some of the people she dealt with were impossible. On the other hand she did seem to pick fights & could be somewhat undiplomatic but she put her heart into the site.
If you want critical reviews of your work then photoSIG is the place to be. It's worth noting there is an expectation that for each photo you submit to the site you're expected to do 3 crits which is a great way of improving your photography skills.
Would I recommend the site? Yes,
EDIT. Sadly the site went down in the middle of December 2014 & hasn't been rebooted by the owner in over 2 months so I would say photoSIG is now dead.

What I am worried about is that I can't get the site anymore, it seems to have gone off line....
