    Sorry guys, but I have to close the photo gallery ASAP, the bandwidth is costing me hundreds per month. I will do something else to replace later, sorry for the short notice.

    Man that is sad to hear. That was one of the prime reasons I had a membership ;-( I'll still keep the membership, but it's sad.

    Re: Photo gallery is closing

    I will be opening another one, I hope anyway, that I can limit the pics to say 5 or so, problem is most people had 100 or so pics at 1 meg a piece, I just don't have the revenue to support that many pics. Lots of free pic posting sites out there that can be used for now. I have new software that I want to get that will be part of the forums, so if you are a member you automaticly get a small gallery, prolly be about four weeks, but last months bill and this months projected was more than I could handle.

    Re: Photo gallery is closing

    Steve, couldn't you try just telling everyone to limit themselves to 5 pics? I am sure that everyone wouldn't mind limiting themselves, as long as they know the limits /forums/images/icons/wink.gif.

    Re: Photo gallery is closing

    Most people don't even know how to resize pics, this is just for a few weeks until I can reconfigure some things.
    I also have to make up for the expense of last month.

    Re: Photo gallery is closing

    Uhh, wow that was fast. That realy sucks, I put a whole lot of time into those pics and that gallery. That was one of the main reasons I paid for my memberships a matter of fact that was THE main reason I paid for my membership. I understand Steve that you had to do what you had to do, but I would have liked at least 1 day to pull them down and save them with the captions I had.
    I am very disappointed in this. I know that allot of other websites like the Pirate board seem to have a whole lot more features and they seem to be getting along. BUT, what do I know, truly not much about the situation. Like I said just that I am really upset. Oh well.

    Re: Photo gallery is closing

    I remember when Steve set up the new gallery.I'll paraphrase..."you can post pic's there,just don't go crazy with it!"
    I limited my pic's to 4 at first.Then I saw everyone else with thier "Albums" which had anywhere from 4-20 pic's in each album.I then started to make "albums"I now have 6 or 7 albums,each with 6-12 pic's in each.I'd say that meet's the "Crazy" criteraia!
    Sorry Steve.

    Steve, is it the number of pics that is the problem, or is it the number of times the pics are viewed that is the problem?

    Re: Photo gallery is closing

    I am kind of with DBlazer. I would have liked to got some notice on the gallery closing. I am sure Steve new it was coming. I am not trying to be rude, but that service was part of the membership and I put a lot of work into my gallery. This site also probably received a bunch of hits because I always had a link to my gallery and COK5 on emails I sent out and other web pages.

    Re: Photo gallery is closing

    Could you zip my pics and email them to me as well? Or can I FTP them from you? I know I had probably around 50 pics but I don't think they were more then 100k a piece... at least I think I resized most of them....

    Re: Photo gallery is closing

    Tell ya what, you have through the weekend to clear it out, I would like to see no more than 10 small pics per member in ONE directory. I will be going to new software where I can limit the size and number of pics so this does not happen, the reason I turned it off was more of a rolling blackout to save on bandwidth just like the power companies do.
    It is costing me hundreds of dollars every month this goes on, I might set up the new softare so you have the option of buying extra space but I haven't decided yet.

    Re: Photo gallery is closing

    I own a business and that is what this board most be too. If the board does not make money then it can't survive. I understand that BUT

    The old snake analogy has served me well. As you cut more and more of your tail off... You'll eventually get to the headand once you loose your head you'll have no where to go. I have tried many things at our business to "save" money, but you have to watch where you do it. I just think that you might have cut off the head of the snake before you started at the tail. I do not know anything about the "business" of running this page, but I do know that the only "benefit" I recieved from becoming a member was the photo gallery. I was posting in the forums all day long for free before that. I have never got any discounts from any of the dealers and had never planned to when I got my membership. I would just be carefull because after thinking over the photo album last night and searching for copies of those pictures. I feel that I have been a bit short changed on my membership now since that was part of the package deal. I just think there will be alot more people like myself and DBlazer that feel this way.
