UPDATE AUG 2011: We found agreement with 3ezy.net. You can move your stuff there if you want free album. head to http://pics.3ezy.net


-------------------------------------------------------

To all existing members. No More Free Lunch Smile
(My messages are in English others please use Google Translate)

We nerds at GoNZB, really appreciate your support. However on 10th March at Midnight UTC, our hosting provider shut down our image hosting website. More on this below

We had already launched paid Membership beginning of the month. many people have signed up for it.

We immediately began working on moving our hosting due to hosting problems. We tried to negotiate with our existing host but they were unreasonable. Within 48 hours we moved everything from old host to new host. Instead of U.S. we moved to Europe were adult sites are not subjected harassment. This gives us less headache. Please note we did not leave anyone behind. All your stuff free or not we brought over too.

Moving to a Bigger Server adds cost but it greatly improved our service from little hosting to bigger hosting.

We can no longer support any more Free Users and we can no longer promise that anonymous hotlinked images uploads will be allowed (at least not for few months).

Existing free members, please convert to paid membership immediately, we are giving a huge discount for next 20 members. We will be blocking upload of any further files as soon as possible.


If you do not wish to take hosting you can download and backup your files. We MAY eventually remove your images to make space for PREMIUM MEMBERS.

We have started locking albums. We will remove free user albums from 13th April 2010 onwards as and when we need to make space.
Your files may remain for 1 month or for 1 year.


To convert to premium membership please visit http://images.gonzb.com/Subscribe.htm key in your Images GoNZB email and complete the process. Your Album will be unlocked.

Please note: If you are using more than allowed limits
(1GB Space ) you need to let me know because you need higher capacity membership.

WE DON'T HAVE UNLIMITED ACCOUNTS SO Please get yours first. You can't buy more than we have Sad

Thank you all.

[UPDATE]

Even though we said we will delete free albums and lock your albums we have not done so. Rolling Eyes

We chose to give you a space limit as opposed to unlimited space before. The space limit for existing free users is 50MB. Only unused or dead albums will be removed. Everything else is business as usual.

Also we no longer have bandwidth limits just as we liked it before, and will be adding more infrastructure to support growing demand. You can have unlimited image views as a paid member that is 100%.so happy UNLIMITED Bandwidth to you. For free uploads we will monitor abuse or excessive use and discard images accordingly. We don't want members to suffer.

What about free uploads for anonymous users: Yes its back. Only we will not allow full direct hotlink as it was abused massively. hey its the internet what else did we expect. Razz
There will be deletion based on score of views every 30 days.



Due to massive free loaders and sudden increase in traffic we had to close down new registration all together for free albums. Image or media hosting is generally prone to theft and attacks, we know this and take measures to protect your uploads as much as computingly possible. But we only concentrate features and good stuff for paid members.

Thanks for your support, specially to all the paid members if you ever come around to the forums Smile

Well...I for one do venture over here to the forums every now and then. I've been gone for a number of weeks due to time limitations at home, hoping that's about to change soon.

I'd like to say Thank you to administration for working so hard to give us such a unique hosting service and for going above and beyond for their members. YOU are appreciated as well!! Smile

So Thank you...for ALL that you do to keep us members happy!!

UPDATE:
Monthly membership is now closed. It was mostly to help our existing members but many new members have bargained in it.

Also supporting monthly membership is not worth the time and money involved. Hope the hopefuls can understand.

Frankly I am happy with the 300+ members paid and free. I have not had any trouble from anyone and everyone has been quite supportive.

Thanks for staying with us all these years.

so...

Merry Christmas and a Happy new year to everyone. since its right around the corner and I m not sure when you will see this message.

Update:
We sent out a newsletter subscription link to all members. Free, Paid and those who have registered but never got the account.

This is not applicable to paid members, your accounts are secure.
For free and pending members , if you are not in the newsletter we'll assume you are awol. We'll delete your account and files.

With the freed up accounts and resources are site will perform better. And maybe bring back monthly accounts.

lets keep the community chugging towards are 5th year. Razz

Secretly we have released free accounts again for a limited time and limited number of users. After a major cleanup all looks good on our end.

None of the free user accounts had to be deleted.
We deleted none of the existing images except for those for which we were served copyright legal notices which were about a handful only.

We deleted a lot of albums which were uploaded by very old members from the newsgroups days.
