The Warm Fuzzy Benefits Of Donating

Your donations are what makes this site possible. Every year, we have to pay a substantial amount of money to keep the servers running and to buy the bandwidth necessary to serve up all these photos and videos. And of course, we spent a ton of our own time writing the code that makes this website work behind the scenes. We don't ask for any compensation for this effort; just for help in keeping the servers up and running.

We want as many people as possible to be able to use the website, but of course we have to balance that out with the finite resources that are available. We've tried to tweak the system to make it as fair as possible, and those of you who have been with us since the beginning know that we've tried our best to make changes as we go.

Here is what we do these days: Folks who do not donate are free to use the site but are limited to uploading 25 MB of content. A reasonable donation is all that's needed to lift this uploading restriction. Furthermore, all advertisements will be removed from your albums once you donate. The ads are something we added recently to album overview pages to hopefully help generate some additional cash to help pay for the servers. Please let us know what you think of the new system.

And please do donate as generously as you can. Thanks so much!
