I have not seen any commentary on what happened to this site early this year, why it took so long to fix it (who was responsible?), and what has been done to assure it won't recur. Have I missed it? I don't want to add additional pictures if the folks maintaining the site won't communicate.

Dave, the site Administer is/was responsible for the site. Several members & moderators attempted to have the site fixed, but most of the e-mails went un-answered. Then the site started coming back and I never heard why/who or how. I was working on closing over 14,000 erroneous tickets and it seems everyone else (Mods) were busy. It has been pretty steady since it came back on line. I have no other information, but maybe somebody else does.

Thanks for the info. This whole episode seems very unprofessional to me.

Not sure what to say. It is pretty frustrating, a lot for me since I have spent a lot of time on here uploading pictures. Here it was down for another week. I have been posting stuff at netairspace in the meantime.

Not sure what to say about the issues. Ken is the owner of the site, but not sure if he is really active in maintaining it like he used to. He used to be a regular on here. He seemed to get my emails but not some of the moderators emails when I sent him stuff about the site being down last winter. I sent another email this week and I just checked this morning and found the site up. Hopefully it stays up.

Obviously it is a free site and costs money to run. I would not be against putting ads on here to keep the site free for us but also help cost maintaining it. I am sure there might be a bandwidth issue- we might have to limit size of pictures more to like 1600 wide max. Or like netairspace does - free members max size is 1600 wide, but if you pay for a membership of $15 a year you can have up to 2200 wide.
