In order to get a handle on the rising costs of hosting this website and its 300,000 photos, I've reluctantly been forced to start charging for certain features. Starting later this month, the following fee schedule will go into effect:

la carte pricing

  • Site access: 1 cent per bridge page visited (first 10 pages are free)
  • Photo uploads: 10 cents to upload a single photo of an historic bridge
  • Photo uploads of UCEBs: $9.95 per photo fee to upload photos of mundane ugly bridges
  • Adding pages: 10 cents per new bridge page added
  • Duplicate page fee: $24.95 fee charged if a new page duplicates an existing page
  • Answers to questions: $2.00 per question asked
  • Correct answers to questions: $5.00 per correct answer

Discount packages

  • Steel Rivet Package: Provides access to 250 bridge pages, $1.00
  • Golden Spike Package: Unlimited access(*) to all bridge pages for one month, $4.95/month
  • Pro Package: Ability to upload 250 photos, $9.95
  • Bridge Addict Package: Ability to upload 10,000 photos, $39.95
  • Mega Smoot Jumbo Deluxe Pro Platinum Enhanced Unlimited Package With Sprinkles: Unlimited(*) use of all site features, $19.95 per month

(*) Unlimited access speeds may be throttled during periods of heavy use (see AT&T for details)

Details on payment methods will be announced as soon as they are finalized by Ms. Lirpa Sloof, the new business manager for Bridgehunter.com.

Well, you sure suckered me. Realistically, though, I don't think many of us would object to being asked for a donation. Websites ain't free, except when loaded with pop-up advertising. Just thinking.
