Jarred,
Sorry that I assumed that the site had been sold. It seemed that, some time ago, Bananas.org had become part of some larger entity, and there was an elaborate procedure to get on site. Guess I was wrong. Again, sorry.

MediaHound ,
Thanks for the site and all the enjoyment most of us get from being on here.
I do not understand the whining for something we do not pay for but use almost on a daily basis.
Are you still into Banana's?

Regards,
Craig

It seems so easy to complain when you are not doing the work.
The site provides more entertainment then it disappoints.
Just say thanks to MediaHound for providing the site that the majority enjoy!!!

Sorry Jared. I haven't had much time lately, and I confused you with Garden Web. It was sold and it has become more difficult to get to the site.

The site earns next to nothing from the few google ads that are peppered around here and there, and with the costs to run it and store all the data, bandwidth etc, its a loss, but that's OK, as I did not start this project with money in mind.

Actually I did not realize it was down and as soon as I did (thanks to an email I received from a post on the Bananas.org Facebook page! ), I restarted the server.
I should setup some notifications to alert when the site goes down..
anyway, sorry about that, everyone!
That suggests that you own more than one website and bananas.org is not the homepage on your browser. Am I correct?

I ask because I have only one website so, of course, it is my homepage and I would know it was down as soon as I opened my browser, which would be within a day.

Why so many questions? That's none of our business. He's intitled to a private life and we must appreciate what is freely and generously provided to us.
Enjoy the site for what's it's meant for; bananas!

I wasn't speaking to you. Your implication that I don't appreciate this site is wrong. And, you don't dictate my values.

Then use private messaging if you do not want people to comment. Just sayin'...
Where did I say that you didn't enjoy this site?
That's the last of my comments about this matter.
If you need to say more to me, I invite you to do so by private messaging.

Why does it seem that it is the same people that complain?
I am on the site every day and it is rare to have it down.
It would be more appropriate to say thank you to MediHound than to complain about something that cost you 0 dollars. Like you said there are other sites out there, maybe you should frequent them and don't worry about this one and how it is run.

Obviously your values are low.

Be nice and enjoy. If you are unhappy with site "LEAVE".
