Share gets rolled into the Nokia Account system on Ovi

After a little downtime and turnaround, Share on Ovi seems to have had its login system well and truly integrated with the generic Nokia Account system used in some other parts of Ovi. There have been some glitches of course - at least one reader emailed in with a story of woe - but things generally seem to be working. Interestingly, on the Account page, there's a section on 'Subscribed Services' (screenshotted below), showing the integration between Ovi, Share on Ovi, Friend View, Nokia Chat and My Nokia.

Read on in the full article.

Another tale of woe here.
My account has been completely blanked. All my photos and channels gone. F*** off Nokia, I'm going back to Flickr.
Thank God for Google Cache, but I'm looking at weeks of work to restore/transfer what I lost.

Same with me. Everything disappeared from my Share account with this "Single Sign On" solution. F*CKERS!!!

backup

Backing stuff up is never a bad Idea. In fact, its a very good Idea.

Well Well This is A Big Fail....

2 Grand Issues Here:

1.My pics on share on ovi are gone.

2. Ovi sync on my E71 is broken, and refuses to sync with the server.

I'm especially frustrated with #2.

Report

But All my images got cleared from the shared account. But then I had the same nokia account and the same share account user-id, but different e-mail adresses... Yet, syncing with share online still works fine on the N82.

If you have only one account (either share or ovi) the merging seemed to go fine to. Can anyone confirm that if all details (login, password and e-mail) match. the merging went fine too?

my images are gone too.
luckily not too many were there - just 3 or 4 that I uploaded to check what exif data was read and displayed, and how good their location tagging feature was compared to other services.
but everything has disappeared for sure........

Well, I had two accounts with different names, one for Ovi and one for Share on Ovi. Now I basically have two Nokia accounts, so all the images are still connected to the username I had for share on ovi.

My guess would therefore be that there might be a problem for those who used the same username for both services and now are only logged in with their Nokia account. In that case your pictures would still be there. Maybe try logging out of ovi and then logging in on the share on ovi site first...

I hope you guys get your pictures back soon enough!

It's not possible to login with the original login to share.ovi.com. The single sign on does not allow it anymore. It sucks...

Didn't you guys get the email from Nokia asking you to make sure the account emails etc. are the same and correct? I did and did what they told me to and works fine (no lost pics).

Having said that, I suspect they have not just wiped out all your pics and they can be retrieved somehow if you inform them of the fact that you had two different email addresses or what not in the different accounts.

Both were the same (email, login and pwd) and it was wiped out.

Wow. That's a bummer. Try contacting them - hopefully they can be recovered.


ps. I am sure they really are gone, but just to make sure: when I logged on Ovi main page, and then clicked on the Pictures/Share icon on the top, I still needed to click on "Login" the first time I went to the share page (before I did that there was a welcome page asking me to register). Now I seem to get logged in automatically to both (and the pics are there)
