Does anyone still have/play Imagine Artist and can confirm whether or not the upload feature/online gallery still works?

Background: I picked up a used copy a few days ago only to realise later it doesn't allow exporting to the camera photo album. The only way to get pictures out seems to be to upload online. I tried to get on the link given in the manual (http://imagine.ubi.com/artistonline) to setup and it redirects to a Flash site that loads sporadically, it tends not to load fully on my browser. There is an Imagine Artist section, but I'm not sure whether it still works, i.e. broken or is it just me?

Side comment: yeah, it's a Ubisoft Imagine title, and nah, I'm not completely nuts ... not yet anyway. :P I also have Art Academy: First Semester and Colors! 3D, but I like to try new drawing games/apps. The art lessons in the game are awful, but the pencil tool in free draw mode is nice. However, if exporting doesn't work then it's no-go for me.

Do you think there's any hope for this one or should it go back to the store? Thanks in advance.

Not sure, but these two links might help answer your question:
Ubisoft FAQ - the dropdown menu lists the Imagine titles under Nintendo DS/DSi
List of Imagine Games - Giant Bomb - incomplete list if you want to see the box covers

As an aside, I'm not interested in the franchise in general, just that this title happens to have a free draw mode and I was looking to try it out.

Just to end the story, after a few more tries with the signup I gave up and brought it back to the store. Doubted I was going to get a refund (trade-in maybe?), but I explained the situation to one of the staff and he was kind enough to issue one. (Obvious lesson, be very careful with console games that rely on the cloud for a feature that's essential to you, as it might no longer work down the road.)

I agree, it does worry me that some games are moving that way - i.e. you can only play them for a few years before the servers go down and your game is no longer working. It's not all that common yet (standard multiplayer features aside) but as games increasingly move towards being a service I think we'll see a lot more of this sort of thing happening.

It'll do horrible things for the video game historians - imagine if books could no longer be read after a few years due to the machine that keeps the ink on the page being turned off. Goodbye libraries/history!

I used to have a blog link here. I'll put it back up when the blog has something to read.

Yeah, it's just not the same. Of course there's the novelty element, they figure people will have moved onto newer games by the time they turn off the lights. Sometimes though, people only discovered the game a few years later, they're happy to find a copy then find out part of it no longer works. Granted this wasn't a particularly exciting title for me, but for some I might feel a bit of regret for not playing it sooner, to experience the game in its initial launch state.

Guess in the past with consoles being local play multiplayer and don't connect to the Internet/social networks, we didn't have to worry about this kind of thing before.
