Dear Nutties.

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.ย  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.

  1. Thank you so much for everything you guys do. I appreciate every single cap!!! I really hope you find a way to keep the site up, and not go crazy in the process!

  2. OH MY GOD YOU’RE BACK :'( TEARS TEARS ARE EVERYWHERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I LOVE YOU GUYS THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!! You’re the best place out there for screencaps

    /end over dramatic creepyness

  3. I love this site so much!! It’s the GOD of screencaps! If it goes, I don’t know I’ll do ๐Ÿ™ Especially the glee ones! Please stay :'(

  4. You guys are the only site I like for caps…no offence to the others but you guys are amazing. Thank you so much for every cap you make.

  5. I love this site a lot this has always been the place I’ve gone for caps and I honestly don’t know what I would do without this site. I wanted to say thanks for all the amazing work that you all do to provide all of us with amazing caps to use.

  6. Thanks for all that you guys do. This has been my go-to site for The Vampire Diaries screencaps since season one and I more than appreciate all the hardwork that goes into every aspect of this site. I just wish I could do more than comment and express my gratitude.

  7. Thanks for all you guys do! And I for one would click on a donate button to help you guys out when I can. It may not be much, but it’d be something. I know how much high traffic sites cost, and every dollar helps.

  8. Hi!! I feel so bad because I never could figure out how to leave a comment on the old site so didn’t explore further on this one. I completely love the screencaps for Supernatural. You have the absolute best and you don’t just focus on one of the actors. Thanks so much to all of you for all the hard work and time you put into this. I really do appreciate it. And if the ads help you out, bring ’em on!

  9. thank you so very much for everything — always! — yours is my main go-to source for SPN caps, as your gallery really facilitates things for me and believe you me, for all your dedication i am forever grateful. <3

  10. Thank you for all the work you guys do. I rely on this site heavily for my graphics. I really think you should consider ads (banner ads, probably) to help ease the burden of cost. It would not impact the site hugely and it would help keep it running for everyone ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. I just wanted to say thank you. It’s so good to see the site again. I’m glad that you guys will still be here, even if it’s not much longer. Ads are no problem if it helps you guys stay. I’ve been coming here for a long time, mostly for SPN caps. It’s so hard to find good HD, logoless caps. You guys are amazing, and I’m sorry I never said it sooner. Long live HOTN. I’m so lost without this site.

  12. thank you so much for your hard work! I know how much work goes into selecting the screen caps or the pause-rewind-step-by-step-process to get a certain scene – and it’s really appreciated. My last Supernatural photobook about Season 5 contains 10 % caps from here (and I’ve credited you on the first page!). I have the books send to the main cast, Jared and Jensen, and the best thing: they like them and they keep them. So, be proud!

  13. I wish I could do more than to express my gratitude for EVERYTHING you guys do. ๐Ÿ™ Unfortunately, I’m a struggling college student. ๐Ÿ™
    But I’ve come to you guys since the days of Smallville in 07 to the days of TVD now.
    I’d miss you guys too much to have you guys just go away ๐Ÿ™
    I have NO problem with Ads, if it helps then so be it! ๐Ÿ˜€

  14. So glad your site is still up, I understand the reasons, perhaps a suggestion would be to remove some shows and just keep galleries that are popular or perhaps get rid of movies. Anyways thanks guys

  15. Thank you so much! Just please don’t delete Narnia and Harry Potter screencaps. I need them! I don’t know what will I do if you delete those :'(

  16. I think you’re doing an amazing job here, this is one of the most important caps source ever and I really hope you can keep it “alive”.
    I’m sorry ‘cos I didn’t show enough how appreciate your work here.
    Thanks for everything.

  17. Thankyou so much for keeping your site up.
    Im addicted to this site, it helps me out so much with creating graphics for our Tumblr Supernatural fandom.
    I really appreciate everything you are doing, i was going to suggest you should put adverts on your site to help with the cost. But luckily you’ve seen that it helps ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Once again, thankyou so much.

  18. Thank you so much for keeping the site up, at least for a while.
    I am eternally grateful, you guys are the best source for my spn caps and I really love it. Thanks for all the effort you have been putting in and are still putting in keeping this site running.

    Personally I don’t mind seeing a few ads is that means the site can stay online. I’d gladly click my way through them to enjoy the great caps you guys make.

  19. Ahhhhhhhhhh really though I’m so glad you guys are back. I really wish I could do something, like donate, to help… I’m trying to convince my mom. Anyways I just wanna say how grateful I’m to all the hard work you guys put into the site. It’s just amazing. You guys are angels.

  20. OH MY GOD. It is so great to see you will continue the site for as long as you can but I was wondering if the caps for any of the shows will be available as ZIPS that be accessed to from the hotn tumblr? because I would love to download all the ones I would be able to! (:

  21. Hi!
    So I’ve never commented or anything before, because it just never occured to me, which I guess is kind of selfish. But now that you wrote this post, I get it. It must suck to have so many visitors and not hear much from them. But I LOVE this site. It’s SO great, I often go here to find screen caps, mostly from Grey’s Anatomy but occasionally from other shows to. So thank you for putting so much hard work into it, and I really do understand that it’s a LOT of work. I love the site and I’m certain everyone else who come here love it just as much as I do. I will post a link on Tumblr to spread the word!

  22. Hello!
    I’m from Russia. I don’t speak English well. Thank you for your job!!! I love your site very much. You are amazing people!!!

  23. I just wanted to thank you for all the effort you’ve put into this website and its caps. I realise that you don’t receive many comments, but I can assure you that this is very likely the most reliable website on the Internet to find high quality screencaps, and I cannot thank you enough for that. I was introduced to this website two years ago by the Gossip Girl fandom, and you have stuck with me through all of my horrible Photoshop experimentation phases. Thank you.

  24. I just wanted to say thank you for all the hard work you’ve put into this site and providing us with the very best screencaptures.

  25. you have no idea how much i appreciate all the work you put into this site. i’ve only known about you for a couple of weeks, a month, tops, but honestly, your caps are absolutely amazing! honestly, ads are completely fine with me if it helps with the burden of the cost for this site! i dunno what i would do without it.

  26. I am one of many that is guilty of rarely leaving comments, but I feel like I have been taking this site and all the wonderful screencap galleries for granted. Trust me, there is a reason that I only visit Home of the Nutty for screencaps: yours are ALWAYS the best. And it shows. No other screencap sites have come close. So whatever you decide to do, I will support your decision. Thank you for all of the hard work!

    P.S. I don’t mind ads, personally. I barely take notice to them, so should you decide to keep this site up and running, ads won’t deter me.

  27. Hey, I love the work that you guys do, and I thank you very much for spending all of your hard work and time on it!

  28. Hi, I love your site! It’s the first place I go for screencaps. I love the time and dedication you all put into the site. I wish I could donate money, but I’m not 18 yet. Ads are not a problem, do whatever you have to do to keep the site alive! It’s my place for Grey’s, Bones & HP caps!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  29. I come here every week for Vampire Diaries caps and had no idea the problems you guys were going through. I will comment every week. I found your site and I love your caps so much. ๐Ÿ™‚

  30. I would never have made Harry Potter graphics that I am most proud of without you guys. This site and all the work you’ve done is always, always, always appreciated. ๐Ÿ™‚ You guys are the best!!

  31. This is the best capping site, logoless, HQ and the caps are always gorgeous, you’re doing an amazing job! I’ll try to click the ads everytime I visit, hope this will help a little. Thank you and keep up the good work, we really appreciate it!

  32. Thank you all so much for all the hard work you do and the effort that you put into this website – it’s my number one capping site and I absolutely adore it. I have no problem with ads and/or clicking on them religiously if it means the site can stay! I try to always comment with a thank you on the Livejournal posts, but this is just another to let you know how much I appreciate all the dedication to this site. I love you guys! <3

  33. I’m so glad that HOTN is back. Thank you soo much for all the amazing caps. I love you guys. ๐Ÿ™‚ THANK YOU! ๐Ÿ™‚

  34. Thank you guys so much for everything you do! Yours is one of the only reliable sites for good quality caps and we all appreciate it so much more than you know!

  35. Your caps are amazing, thank you so much for adding them all. I come to your site almost everyday. Your work is appreciated! ๐Ÿ™‚

  36. Your website is one of the best online for screencaptures and one of the only ones that posts HQ logo-less shots! (Especially of “Smallville” and “The Vampire Diaries”). I come to your website guaranteed every 2 or 3 days.
    I just wanted to say that your website and the people who run it are appreciated much more than you know. I really hope that Home Of The Nutty will be able to stay open. It would be very sad to lose such a great website.

  37. Thank you so much for your caps. Know that your work most definitely does NOT go unappreciated. I wish I could give you all a thousand Galleons to keep this site forever, but alas I still have yet to win a Triwizard Tournament. However, know that I do love you for what you do & I’m so happy you decided to keep the site. Hopefully I can find a way to donate sometime in the future.

    I love this site, thanks again!

  38. glad you’re back ๐Ÿ™‚ i love this site so much and it’s sad to lose this great website.ur caps are amazing.Thanks for ur hard works ๐Ÿ™‚

  39. Just wanted to drop by and tell you how much I appreciate all of your hard work. Thanks for all the amazing screencaps, and I’m loving the redesign of the site! ๐Ÿ™‚

  40. I feel like an idiot. I’ve used your screencaps once before, and had no idea there was a place to comment and thank you. I did give credit, though! Anyway, thank you for everything you do. I plan to use your caps again, and won’t let my simple ignorance happen in the future.
