Due to rising cost concerns regarding bandwidth, I have been forced to take the Gallery offline for the time being. This site is hosted on a private server which affords great speed and downloading times. However, private servers can come with hefty price tags. The gallery is one of the most frequently visited parts of the site and I regret taking it down, but it is the worst offender where bandwidth and cost is concerned. It is just not financially feasible to sustain it at this time. Until now, I've been paying out of pocket for this entire site, which includes the bandwidth hogging gallery, software upgrades, hosting fees, and more. With the gallery taken offline, I predict a significant savings that, up to this point, was all purely coming from my own wallet. Not all is lost, however, there are some other solutions available. I've managed to keep the gallery (and this entire site) free since it's inception in October of 2004. So there are some choices: 1) Make the gallery accessible only to people who have uploaded over 100 pictures as of September 11, 2008 and give access to anyone else who is willing to pay a nominal fee (something ridiculously low, like $3.95 for a month of access). 2) Decrease and delete files that are uploaded on a daily basis, or every two days. 3) Have a quota of the amount of images that can be downloaded by users. Perhaps verified users can download more in a day. 4) Host all pictures uploaded here to a free service offsite, but "looks like" it is hosted at Ultimatecuckold.net. In any case, it's the cost I'm no longer willing to shoulder. Furthermore, I will be putting up a donation button on the site and creating a new category for people who donate. If you donate a certain amount to the site, you will receive benefits that Verified Members have (but you won't be able to access the Verified Area). Read the Verified Guidelines section for more information on what you get. I know I've said I wouldn't make the site a paysite and I'm trying to avoid that possibility. However, reality has dictated that the gallery be taken offline - at least for now, and at least for a while. Lastly, please be patient if the site seems slow. I've had to adjust the server speed to be more accomodating to my finances. If it seems slow, come back later when not as many people are on the site. This is usually between the hours of 03:00:00 and 08:00:00 EST. Sorry to do this, but it seems to be the only course of action at the moment.
