There were a few hiccups with our move last night, mainly the site not responding on our end with our ISP. We will disable posting images during the move tonight—possibly throughout tomorrow—and the switch should be seamless as the text we read is on one server but images on another. As far as opt-in/opt-out, that will follow the next day when the new server is accessible around the world. :)
Excuses Excuses chop chop get busy :ROFLMAO: just kidding, It's good to see things moving along as far as posting images, oh well i guess the Playboy Centerfold for this month will be delayed :ROFLMAO:

Indeed. As to why we needed to upgrade our server in order to expand storage space on the fly instead of being locked in at a specific, unused, size. It only made fiscal sense to take that approach now that we've passed 2000 images, albeit some small (less than 100 KB, but some large in excess of 1 MB (supporting up to 50-megapixel images at full resolution too). We will also be able to add video, which is a project in the works.

Please not in the public forum. There are conversations for that in which multiple participants can be invited to, though. :)

Yes sir!

We were on a contract with more space than needed at this point, paying more. We've reduced costs by picking an "on the fly" expandable storage solution, with faster read/write speeds, so when we reach that limit we can crank up the space with 0 downtime and use the savings on that for marketing instead. :)

Do you pass out flyers at the local supermarket, hotels and other high traffic areas?
We do not, but printing them is the plan when we are able to go multilingual. This is so that it can be picked up by all tourists and not solely focus on the English market.

This feature has been introduced for members of Okinawa.Org.

Nothing is needed for new members as it's a required option for those signing up. However, for members that joined on or prior to May 18, 2020, they will need to read this guide on how to enable and disable Google AdSense.

We hope that you keep them enabled, as default, as it helps us support our mission, though. :)
