We have sent out emailers to those subscribed to our newsletter and also updated twitter. Some people we emailed personally.

Incident: We have two servers and a backup servers. The backup and the main server had data corruption which was causing preiodic downtimes. We thought we had resolved it but out of nowhere 2 out of 3 main disks failed which means data cannot be recovered at all.

The backups were already corrupted due to slow disk errors so the database could not be recovered but most of the files uploaded looked intact.
We had not had the chance to finish doing a fresh backup after fixing the issues.

We are now running from the backup server and the only working database and files that we were able to recover.

As one paying member describes it, it is "Ancient"

Please note the following:

1. All subscriptions are being cancelled. Recent ones refunded.
2. Your existing premium account will remain active forever.

Gonzb images will be free to use going forward.

It was a nice long run and I am keeping the systems online for the linked pictures that are still there.

Sorry for all the trouble to those who lost data.

Hi everybody,
Just a quick update. It seems we are still left with a few (7 or so) 50% off Premium Album accounts. So if you want to sign up for these its open to all new and existing free members. So let your pals know of this too.

To get the account just drop me a PM or email me @ 4d.jason@gmail.com so I can pass you the link and details. Don't use the Website to sign up for special offer subscriptions as they are charged at prevaling prices.

They are the same rate 50% discounted rate which Euro 1.99 per month and 21 Euros per year so its more than 50% off for annual.

If the accounts are sold out I will update here.

P.s Also, we will have a new forum admin/moderator soon Smile

As you might all already know we are conserving resources and the good stuff only for premium members. Private albums, direct hotlink, permissions etc is only for GoNZB images members.

However we have not left out our free users...
We had mentioned we will be severaly limiting free anoynmous uploads until further notice. We worked on it and made a trimmed out a version of our free upload area AND ITS FINALLY HERE! Very Happy It is available at


and you can get bulk links emailed to you. This way you do not need to register or look for your links like in other image hosts. Direct hotlink to full size images is not available like GoNZB Images. Other features like bulk links far outway this limitation.

Hosting is still open to all, no restrictions on content and faster than other hosts as usual. Thanks to some good work put in by administrators and coders who are speed freaks. Rolling Eyes

Due to limited resources we can no longer allow New User Registrations or New Private albums. Existing users can however continue to enjoy the benefits.

Anonymous uploads and uploads to other category albums are still open.

Why upload is ok but not Membership Albums.

Membership Albums is our most powerful feature.
- You can create Many sub albums, nest albums

Advanced features (be careful, you can break your album into two)
- You can "Edit Permissions", share with particular users even allow them to upload. Or Edit group permissions. You can even disallow Administrators (including me) from accessing it all together!! I mean if its your personal.. erm home photo shoot, why should you have to let my mods or me see it.

- You can "Edit Themes" Yes!. You can customize the look and feel of YOUR Album like Blogs. You can choose colors, how many pictures in a row, remove advertisements and other elements from the page. Redesign where comments are posted etc. Over 150 such customizations are possible!!!
- Direct Linking and No Watermark.
- Unlimited Space
- No Delete (unless you violate prevailing laws)
- Unlimited Bandwidth

None of the above and so many more features are possible with non member uploads.

With so many advanced features comes a price of how many people can use it on our little hosting at any one time. We would rather have a small and dedicated membership than tons of abandoned albums.

For non members wishing to get an account:
Please proceed to Subscription page @ http://images.gonzb.com/Subscribe.htm

Existing members you can continue to enjoy your account for FREE! However we would appreciate it if you can support us with an optional Subscription which is Priced for you at 1.99 Euros / month so you get a chance to subscribe for lower. We will increase the rate back to 2.99 Euros + / month from 15th April 2010
Thank you for your continued support.

The software listed here has been scanned for viruses and gotten from reliable source. Also tested that there is no file corruption. However I still recommend you scan with antivirus after download.

Useful Software for manipulating Picture
Download IrfanView first and install it. Then you should also install the plugins. Download IrfanView Plugins

Irfanview is for Windows only. It is faster than any other software for viewing images on your computer. It is also very handy in doing some tasks with picture like Converting format, resizing, Red-eye reduction, and yes Watermarking.
for e.g. to watermark and upload to GoNZB you can follow the menu like this
File > Batch conversion... > Advanced > Add overlay text > Settings

You can batch watermark as many images as you want.

More soon...
