Guys & Gals!
Over time I’ve noticed that there are several pages
missing from your gallery posts. This is usually
due to the fact that a lot of you utillize “bad” hosts
that offers free webspace in exchange for advertising.
The reason I call them “bad” is because they’re
often down, and furthermore - they often require the
users to link directly to their pages rather to your own
pictures…eg…in your gallery threads.
Therefor I’ll ask you to consider getting a better
The reason I’m asking you to do this is because
when people take the time to help out
on critiquing your work…it is quite annoying
to find such messages as:
“The site you’re looking for can’t be found”
“This site doesn’t allow for direct linking to images”
“The maximum allowed traffic for this site has exeeded - try again tomorrow”
And the number one turn-off is:
- POP UPS! Thousands of them, many of the popups
found on “free-webhotel-sites” contains auto-installable
spyware such as Gator, link-cursor and many more.
It is SO ANNOYING that I sometimes contemplate writing
down the members that utillize such services so I don’t
have to fight all those popups and remove all those adware
things just for helping out with their art.
Personally I pay only 2 Dollars a month for my website
and have had an uptime for over 2 years no with
little or no complaint from anyone.
…but nothing put’s me off like a message telling
me to “Copy and paste” the link in order to see
a chaps picture…it’s bothersome…it’s annoying
it wastes time…and If I had to do that for every
image posted for EVERY artist posting it…I’d
rather not comment or watch anything at all.
That’s the reason I’m writing this. because I don’t
want it to end up like that. I want to come around
and enjoy your work…but don’t make it a struggle
for us to see your brilliant work - people! Get
yourself a domain and a host now!
