Hi folks,

I discovered a tiny error that I made in the GoatWorld Spotlight where it would only show so many pictures and then show a "file not found" page. This error has been fixed.

As long as I'm on the subject, I thought I'd give everyone a heads up on what I am planning on doing with the Picture Show. Everyone that is reading this is already a member so your input would be greatly appreciated.

I'd like to incorporate into the Picture Show, "Picture Goat Ads" where members can send a picture of the goat(s) they want to sell, some information about them and such as well as the price if not a "give me an offer" type of sale. This information can also include a link to their web site if needed.

This will be a "member privilege" ($6.00 per year) with up to 48 picture ads being allowed per year, or up to 4 per month. I feel confident that it is the cheapest goat advertising anywhere on the Internet and an ad in a very high traffic feature of GoatWorld.

Of course, I'm still going to add candid pictures that I receive from time to time so the Picture Show will not be an "advertisement only" type of feature - I think that might drive people away.

I hate to charge for running the feature like that but there is a certain amount of time I have to spend in preparing pictures, uploading them, typing in the information, etc. My wife thinks $6.00 is way to cheap but I feel that if enough people take advantage of the feature, it will pay for itself. Besides, I know goats are an expense to feed and just about every feed store will take advantage of a person who raises goats because they think they are a "specialty" of exotic breed or something.

I've perused alot of goat sites where people advertise their goats regularly and I cannot understand how they can pay $35.00 per month per ad. Well, guess I can understand - if they have the money and the goat is a $1000 goat, what's $35.00? So I feel $6.00 is a fair price and will hopefully bring in some extra traffic, members and more goat pictures. They really are the purpose behind the whole thing anyway right?

I'd love to hear everyones thoughts, opinions or ideas on the matter. I try to treat GoatWorld as a democracy so your opinion does matter.

Best regards,

Gary
