Server Issues + update[Autosave]

April 30, 2021 - Reading time: 9 minutes

Apologies for the issues. We havent been aware of upload problems lately until a user noticed us about it. We fixed the issues and were working with a new cdn to provide even faster loading times for your images.

Some words about finances. Pixstash hosting costs for 2020 are around 150usd. Advertisting income was probably about 20 usd.  Pixstash is in it´s 2nd year now, and I expect more growth then ever.    To help is cover costs I would like to ask you a favor. 

Get Brave! Brave is a privacy focused browser rewarding you with BAT( Basic Attention Tokens). Pixstash is part of their publishers program.  Using Brave you get rewarded BAT which you can donate towards your favourite publishers. A full list of Brave Publishers can be found here: https://batgrowth.com/publishers

I believe in freedom of speech. With pixstash I want to offer users a way to upload images without getting their data exploited. Currently we show ads from A-ADS, a Bitcoin Advertising Network. I would prefer to have pixstash adfree so users have a smooth experience, but at the moment I need to get at least a little bit of the costs of pixstash back.   I would appreciate if you would send us some BAT rewards within brave.  Download https://brave.com/

Please use NSFW Function

January 19, 2021 - Reading time: ~1 minute

Dear Stashers...

In the latest weeks we´ve experienced more issues then usually with nsfw tagging. Pixstash is all about freedom of spech, so feel free to upload everything (except cp) to pixstash. 

We do have some automatic content moderation and nsfw tagging in place, but it does not catch them all hehe

I would like to ask you to tag NSFW pictures as such. The alternative would be to switch pixstash to pre-moderation mode, meaning every picture uploaded will go through manual moderation, which will slow down your uploads massively since every upload would go through manual moderation.

One more thing: Childporn 

Recently there have been some cp uploads, we do have strict policies regarding childporn, If uploaded and detected, it will be deleted instantly and your ip adress will be logged. If it doesnt get deleted by our automatic content moderation your filles will still be deleted and your ip adress and the content you uploaded will be handed over to police.

ps: no, we´re not hunting down any teenagers sharing their xpics, I am talking about other stuff no child should go through. So to all cp uploaders, just know there is no place for you at pixstash and you will be prosecuted.
