As some of you have noted, the Site has been slow at times, this is because we share a Server with Audiokarma and the growth there and here has been tremendous.

It gotten to the point where a new and better Server is in the works but of course those things don't come cheap so it's time to hit people up for donations.

The "Pay" button (http://www.audiokarma.org/support.html) in the top right of the page hasn't worked on this side of the Site since our inception but that's now been fixed.

Membership here is free and there is no obligation to pay, however if you feel you get some entertainment and useful information from this place then contributions big or small are always welcome (and needed).

A Subscription to Audiokarma (different than a donation and $25 last I knew) gets you access to some extra Forums on the Audiokarma side if you are interested in those.

No need to worry about slow downs. In fact the new hardware should ensure that Videokarma will be speedier then ever.

We certainly don't want to burden our membership, but rather appeal to those who wish to help with the new server implementation. Thank you in advance for your generosity in helping to make Videokarma.org the kind of place where we want to spend time, and know that your donations will make that time spent even more enjoyable!

Warmest regards,

The VK.org Staff

Since I started my subscription the "Subscriber" badge hasn't appeared under my name. I truly don't care for myself, but the presence of subscribers does serve to encourage others to follow suit. I've put the "AK Subscriber" logo on my avatar, and I'll leave it like that unless anyone feels that it's improper in any way.

Same here.

Now that the migration is complete we are seeking feedback from all. If you should have any issues please be sure to let us know if you run in to any problems.

As to subscriptions, well we never really set any up for Videokarma, but can easily for our members here. Give me a little bit of time and ill get it ready to rock and roll. Thanks !

About 14 minutes ago the this site was giving me 'server is too busy at the moment' messages on links and page refreshes for a few minutes.

Thanks for the feedback. Some times this happens if you catch the site in the middle of its daily back up. If this happens for more then a half hour then it could be another issue. Please let us know. Thanks
