So here we are yet again! Thanks to people who think it’s OK to log on to the site and take multiple images and post them to other sites to boost their own ego I’m having to re-evaluate who can access what on the site. I don’t mind people using the original images on this site, if they ask and credit the site, but to just blatantly take images by bulk, remove watermarks and post elsewhere is just unacceptable and damned rude! I know once images are out there on the net it’s hard to control them, but some people just take the piss!
Therefore, with immediate effect membership is restricted and will be subject to approval and a one off subscription charge of £20 ($25). I will also be making much more content members only going forward with less of the original content available publically.
To the existing members, contributors, donors and friends, firstly sorry I’ve had to do this as I value all your input, knowledge and images you send for the site. I know who you are and your membership is valued and will continue without restriction and you should be able to log into the site as normal. Other members will also continue to have access for the time being, but at the end of April I will be removing members that aren’t active on the site and they will have to register again and be subject to the subscription charge. Can I ask that all members that want to continue having access please login at least once in the next few weeks please?
Again I’m really sorry to do this, but a small majority have ruined it for all the genuine supporters and fans out there, but I hope you understand the position I’m taking. Any issues or questions, either leave a comment below or contact me via the contact page.
Thanks again for all the support of the site.
