    It would seem that they lost their credit card payment processor and are announcing major changes on December 7th.

    Hello,

    As you can see, we are deprived again of the most used payment method on the web for almost 1 month.

    Legal proceedings to correct these anomalies are ongoing.
    Unfortunately, they encounter incompetence, incomprehension, disregard of the Laws and the facts, as well as an unusually long judicial time (chronic lack of resources allocated to Justice in France).

    More informations on our blog (in french): https://blog.1fichier.com

    We can no longer maintain the service in its current Terms.

    Beginning on December 7, 2016, major changes will be made in order to continue our activities, in line with the policy we have implemented since the launch of the service.

    Hope you enjoy the changes! :-)

    Regards,
    The Staff

    Of course, I'm not even worried at all that they'll be announcing the changes on Pearl Harbor day and I feel like a battleship sitting in the harbor.
    I really hope that I don't have to start over with a new host.

    P.S. I also guess that's why I didn't get my 100GB of hotlink credits this month.

    I just got a copy of that sent in an email which in the last year and a half that I've been premium would be the first email they've sent me.

    I figure the changes will be (at first)

    1. Ad supported downloads (and with it the possibly of future malware)
    2. My hotlink credits won't come back and any files I've hotlinked will be come normal again.
    3. No forever storage for premium. Maybe 3/6 months tops since last download.
    4. Speed slowdowns for free & premium users.
    5. Either an immediate or future big price hike.

    Or at worse, like Trump they'll try to feed me a shit sandwich and tell me how good it is and how lucky I am to have it.

    Seriously though, if they neuter it too much there is zero incentive for me to keep paying for it.

    Mine's good til May but what will a premium account still look like by then?
    They can literally come in and change the TOS to anything they want.

    Charge more, store less and for less time.
    Hell, our premium accounts could be over in a month for all we know.

    Alright!!! Usually shit like this is my fault and now we can blame you.

    I'm just kidding of course, but I'm usually the one who makes the investment just before the lights go out.

    If they mess the host up too bad, try to get a refund and let me know what excuse they used to say no.

    I take it they are these ....

    Your account have 3510.00000 GB CDN credits.

    What are they and how do you use them ?

    I see by the large amount you have that you've never used them.

    You can hotlink them so your downloaders get faster speeds and skip the download screen.
    Click on a file, then hit the $ sign and it puts an asterisk next to the file to let you know that it's hotlinked.
    You can do the reverse to un-hotlink them.



    You can also click on account parameters/parameters and go down and there's a check box you can use to keep it for your downloads,
    though the speed I get on my downloads is pretty good and I've never checked that box since I went premium.

    As a WARNING: Be careful what you hotlink.
    I'm fine for my regular downloads, but I hotlinked a couple of videos & picture sets for the NUTS section once and ended up burning through 400GB in a single day.
    Everyone that download something of yours that's hotlinked, it deducts the full file MB from your totals.
    A dozen people? No problem.
    A couple hundred people..? Could be a big problem.

    I don't know how many downloads you and Jenny get elsewhere but if it's a lot, you probably shouldn't hotlink them or maybe for a limited time then un-hotlink them.
