Unhappy Fotopedia is shutting down

Bad new about this good site
Fotopedia will be close on the 10 th of august 2014
Here is a copy of the mail I recieved

We are sorry to announce that Fotopedia is shutting down. As of August 10, 2014, Fotopedia.com will close and our iOS applications will cease to function.

Our community of passionate photographers, curators and storytellers has made this a wonderful journey, and we’d like to thank you for your hard work and your contributions. We truly believe in the concept of storytelling but don't think there is a suitable business in it yet.

If you submitted photos and stories to Fotopedia, your data will be available to download until August 10, 2014. After this date, all photos and data will be permanently deleted from our servers.

That's bad news. It's disappointing to hear of any photo site closing down.

It is a really bad news. I posted quite many photos there, but I haven't got any message about its closing down. What about all the applications, like Burma or National Parks? Will they also be deleted?

What a pity, I liked the site very much, good source of information, even if different then TE.
