Site announcement. Please read!

Hi Nutties,

a big announcement. As the site keep growing for the past few years. We can’t maintain the site as big as this anymore. The site became almost unconnectable and been offline lots of time. But there’s really nothing we can do about it. Except that we have to put more money in it. But the site became way too expensive to have it up and running and we just don’t have the money for it anymore. The ads barely cover the site payments.

We really considered to shut down HOTN. But HOTN been part of our lives for so long that it’s hard to give it up. And we loved all the amazing support you guys gave us all these years.

So for HOTN to stay open, we have decided to do some site changes.
From now on, we will be offering ZIP files to our caps. We will let you know more about it later. We also going to close a few galleries and put up ZIP files for them. If you encounter an offline gallery, that means it’s closed for good.

Since you are part of our Nutty family, we ask you which gallery you want to stay open and we will consider this for you guys. And we probably keep a few popular galleries open. So, do let us know which gallery you like to stay open.

So the changes will be: fewer galleries, ZIP files, less GB on our server, less bandwidth, cheaper site costs. And most important… running the site more smoothly without downtime.
