PWS Picture on Weather Underground
« on: August 14, 2017, 09:23:07 AM »
Does anyone know how to upload a picture of your PWS so it shows up on Weather Underground?

Sadly, I don't think you will be able to do this anymore. WU disabled all Photo uploading capability to their site back in February. See this link for more info...

I don't think it would hurt to contact support to see if they will at least allow you to set a PWS photo. Don't expect an immediate response from them. It may take a few days or even a week+ before you hear back.

Best of luck! I hope something works out for you.

That's too bad! I thought that was a cool feature. It was always interesting to see what people were running for PWS hardware.

I couldn't agree with you more! It was always neat to see other setups to get ideas about station mounting solutions.

Contacted WU three weeks ago with the same question:

Nope, unfortunately this feature has been removed. No more wunderphotos or PWS photos on our site.

Thanks and let me know if you have any other questions,

That was an official reply?  Seriously?

WU is a freakin' joke.

Banners, tags, widgets, etc. are why I have Signatures turned off.

Thanks for posting their reply. Guess that's a non-starter at this point.

Is that an official response from WU ? A website that has connections with IBM. A "nope" response ....... wow !!!
That is a "level of professionalism" that I would not expect even from an eBay seller.

Seriously?  Careful .... folks will start treating you like they do me when I even suggest such a thing,....

...er... we did manage to reclaim a lot of their weather radio feeds they orphaned... wise up folks.
Couple of us anticipated this crap a few years ago, but nobody believed us...

"In December 2016, (with no prior notice) it appeared that Weather Underground had abandoned the maintenance of their long-present NOAA ALL HAZARDS Weather Radio streams — and by the middle of January 2017, it was obvious. Disgusted Personal Weather Station owners and weather website operators began discussing options privately, publicly on the boards at WxForum net, and elsewhere.
With support, encouragement and suggestions from many in the PWS community, a core group quickly formed, dedicated to restoring NWR streams to the Web. The project became, and remains, a 'Community" project."


Where's YOUR stream?

And in the final analysis, with the WunderWeenies commercialization, it's time for the PWS community to reclaim itself... and it won't happen through WU or any other money-grabber. There'll be more 'disappointments' ahead...

Btw... all XML feeds still down as well as several other features, making not just Meteotemplate but any script using WU non-functional.

I also like how they communicate with the users. All comments on their FB page were removed in bulk...

True, but at least it is not ambiguous.  :-)
