The outage was beyond our control. However, we value the support of our Paid members and want to compensate you for the window of time where the site was not accessible.

I've tried. But only to find out that after I had uploaded more than 100 icons the page wouldn't load anymore.
Also if you upload anything else than private pictures they will delete them. They also have rules about nudity yet the admins of the site break those rules themselves.
I just felt that wasn't a site I would want to be part of.

That much for storage.

P.S. That was about a year ago, maybe things are different now but I only made negative experiences with their storage stuff.

I had some problems with the rules about appropriate content there too, with regards to the icons that show up on the main page.

When a friend and I reported a few to support (it was no more than like two each) for being inappropriate to be FEATURED on the mainpage that anyone gets regardless of age, we got nasty emails from the support staff, basically saying that if we didn't like it, we could go elsewhere.

I actually stopped using GJ all together for a while after that, now (and before) I only use it for RPG accounts, because it's really hard to have only 6 icons when you're trying to portray a character, and really not cost effective to pay for accounts for fictional characters.

Yeah, stuff like that made me stop using the page.
I think I have several entries from LJ copied over there but that's that. I haven't logged into that accounts in a very long time and frankly I don't care for it anymore.

They've revoked the storage, afaik. You try to click on it and it tells you to go to photobucket or something.
