Soopie, the admin speaking here. PLEASE READ!!
I have decided to remain the site open, well it least until the end of the year. In the meantime I got time to think about what I want to do with it. In these 3 months I am able to keep tracks on my statics and what I would pay monthly, we have recently upgraded to a private server, which cost a lot more. According to the monthly uses I can decide wether I want to keep it or not. (aka main problem is, high trafficked site, not enough money to pay for it)
I’ve started Home Of The Nutty for fun and put a lot of work and time in it + My fellow Nutties cappers: Janine+Desiree. Remember the crackdown last year? Imagine the deadly hours we have put to transfer all the caps to our new host. The backing up of caps, saving databases, mysqls. The constant mails to the support teams. If I knew this all beforehand, I would have never think of starting a capping site!
And then…the capping part. Oh boy, where do I start. I think this takes the most amount of time. Home Of The Nutty, hmm isn’t that the site that are posting HQ logo-less screencaps, yes, but have you ever looked further then that? Not only me but the whole team are very precisely when it comes to capping. We never post un-sorted caps. We actually take our “free” time off to go through every single screencap. I always re-cap frame by frame just to get a certain scene/shot. This shows how much we are a devoted cap team! Capping, sorting, uploading…there goes 3 hours of a day. I LOVE THE NUTTY CREW!
Yet, we get about 10.000 visitors a month and we get very rare comments/credits. But when our site is offline, all nutties are going nutts..literally!! People come and snag. It’s just nice to know what or whom we are doing it for.
Since the upgrade to the new server, I have decided to temporary (or maybe forever) close a few galleries. These are the galleries that barely got any visits. Will keep you updated.
All the nutties that have mailed us/comment on LJ, thank you! We have read every single of them and there were a lot of great feedbacks and suggestions!! I will put some into inconsideration. And the reqruiting part, I just have to delay it for a bit. Just until I figured everything out!
ps: All galleries are offline now, will be up VERY SOON.
