We have another update. This will probably be the most restrictive one we see.
There are now submission, rating, favoriting, etc limits per account. 10,000 of each per account, unless you go premium, in which case we upgrade it to 50,000 each. https://alphacoders.com/site/premium-features And the ability to go past that to basically infinity if we can work something out🙂
Larger databases run slower. More images take up more storage space. Overall it's pretty simple.
Now, the less simple part is that many of our members have gone way above these new limits. We're currently iterating on a dynamic system that enforces this based on the account.
Lets say we have an old account that slowly submits a few hundred images a month. It's family friendly content, appropriate to the site it's submitted to. Basically every submission adds value. Alpha System will kindly and discreetly look the other way for the submissions part of this.
Lets say we have an account that oftentimes does large image dumps. The content may be categorized, or might not, but it's all kind of generic and doesn't get viewed. Alpha System will enforce the submisssions part of this system.
The final example: Someone submits a lot of non family friendly content with artistic merit to Image Abyss. We have no ability to monetize this. So Alpha System will enforce the submissions part of this system.
Long story short, if your account runs into one of these limits, please consider upgrading to premium to support us. We need to have a balanced relationship with all accounts at Alpha Coders, and this should get us closer to that goal🙂If you love the site - support it!
