Sunday 'No Upload' Day

Every day hundreds of items are uploaded to the gallery. If you're not here every day checking out all the new stuff, it's easy to miss a lot of it. It's crazy! It's overwhelming! Well, it gets a little overwhelming for us sometimes too. Let's try something new.

Let's make Sundays No Upload Day at Splitcoaststampers. Nothing new uploaded, and no approvals on that day. Use the day instead to catch up and leave comments on all the great uploads you may have missed during the week. It will also give our busy gallery approvers - Jenn and Beate - a day away from the darn computer.

We won't shut uploads completely off on Sundays - if there's a special event such as Virtual Stamp Night we'll be here, or if you simply must upload your item on Sunday, then go ahead.

But let's make Sunday a day of rest. A day to explore some of those hidden gallery treasures and let someone know that you appreciate their creation. Join us tomorrow and every Sunday hereafter for No Upload Day!

Great idea!! I do sometimes feel overwhelmed --don't want to miss anything! Thanks to all the folks at SCS for the wonderful jobs they do to make this site so amazing!

Great idea. I just can't imagine how the "approvers" can keep up - great job, Jenn and Beate! THANK YOU.

Great Idea! Take a break and kick back yall!!

Actually, unless there is a special event, I think you should disable the upload feature on Sundays. No one HAS to upload on that day, so make it so no one can. Otherwise, people still will (some won't remember not to, others won't have read your request).

Great idea. All of you do such a wonderful job with this site. Sunday is a perfect day off to be with your families.

Yeah, Daven! We like to comment, too, and this gives us plenty of time to do it. :) Thanks, man!

jenn | Aug 13, 05 | 4:14 am

I agree with srogers5, disable the ability to upload on Sundays.

GREAT idea!

Kimberly | Aug 13, 05 | 4:20 am

I am so glad you are doing this. Not only for the sake of a down day for well deserved members, but just to catch up. I think there are a lot of beautiful cards that get missed because there are so many uploads everyday. I am glad I can catch up on some cards.

Kimbelry Van Diepen | Aug 13, 05 | 4:24 am

Wohoo Daven! My family thanks you!!! :)Now I don't need to feel guilty on Sunday outings.

Beate | Aug 13, 05 | 4:27 am

This sounds like a great idea.

Kristi Lynn | Aug 13, 05 | 4:41 am

Wonderful idea! I suppose if it's good enough for God, it's good enough for us stampers!! Thank you so much - you guys are so valuable to us all.

Great idea to have Sunday as a day of rest. Thanks for giving Jenn and Beate a well deserved break.

Ellena | Aug 13, 05 | 5:08 am

Sounds good to me! I think disabling the feature might cause problems, though, because then the admins will just be busy fielding hundreds of PMs from people who are freaked out and frustrated that they can't upload and are wondering what's wrong, LOL!

row4d | Aug 13, 05 | 5:12 am

Wonderul idea! You guys do so much work that you deserve even more free time than one day a week!

roo613 | Aug 13, 05 | 5:14 am

Sounds great...everyone needs a break and it will give us time to catch up on our LOOKING and COMMENTING too...
Yippeee!!!

FANTASTIC IDEA!! There's never enough time to explore the gallery for future project ideas because I never want to miss the new stuff. Looking forward to it!

Laura Anne | Aug 13, 05 | 6:11 am

Wonderful idea! Just a small way we can show how much we appreciate all their efforts every other day. Hope they will relax and enjoy time for themselves or with their families.

Sharon | Aug 13, 05 | 6:12 am

Great idea to finially set a day aside to let the hair down-shoes off and just being able to catch up in ways that could not be done before. I love to Stamp up projects but also need time to keep up with the rest of life too. This way with one day off here can catch up with what I may have missed eariler in the week! Please do not disable the site on ony day if at all possible as to we can live one day with out any new items listed. Then at least we can catch up at any time. Thanks

Great idea!!! You guys ROCK!!!

Disneywed(Judy) | Aug 13, 05 | 7:23 am

Great idea! I agree that Sunday should be "Comment Day"! Jenn and Beate definitely deserve a break!!!!

jami | Aug 13, 05 | 7:25 am

Maybe we should do 'no-upload' weekends, except for special occasions. ok don't shoot me it was just an idea!! The girls deserve free time for theirselves and their families.

What a wonderful Idea. You guys need "days off" too!! Just to let you know how much you are appreciated!! This site Rocks!!! Thanks to you and your families for all the hours and things you do to make this site so AwEsOmE.

Kelly K | Aug 13, 05 | 9:08 am

Fabulous idea!! Thanks Jenn & Beate for all you do to make this site ROCK (and Daven, that just goes without saying to you :))

Ditto to everything above. SUPER idea! I am SO glad you are taking some time for just YOU...congrats. on that. Love everything about this site...thanks for your time and talents.

Melissa | Aug 13, 05 | 11:40 am

You mean Jenn and Beate have actual lives outside of SCS???!! Who knew!!!

I will agree to this only if Jenn and Beate will take their families and tour the wonderful Texas Hill Country or the exciting SA area and scrap their outings and share their fabulous creations with us the very next day!!

You awesome ladies rock our world here, go sit in your rockers for a spell! You deserve it!

Jackie G | Aug 13, 05 | 12:17 pm

Krabearkub | Aug 13, 05 | 3:34 pm

I may be late with this request and maybe its already been done, but a HUGH NOTICE IN BOTH THE DEMO AND REGULAR FORUM might catch more people's attention. I think its a great idea for Sundays off.

Thank you all for everything you do to keep the site going.

Shirley | Aug 13, 05 | 3:44 pm

I love this idea! But I will say watch out for Monday. We had a great shoebox swap today and I bet you will start to see lots of uploads for our event! Enjoy your day off Jenn and Beate!

Faryprincess (Amanda) | Aug 13, 05 | 4:45 pm

Ok Daven. I just might get some stamping done for a change and be able to spend more time in the gallery.

Bonnie | Aug 13, 05 | 4:57 pm

Add my kudos for a perfectly reasonable idea! Three cheers for all of you who work so hard!
Absence makes the heart grow fonder when we "break away for a day" and come back on Monday.

Lynne | Aug 13, 05 | 5:05 pm

What a great idea. We all need a bit of time off....or time to catch up:)

No-load Sundays...what a great idea! Maybe you should consider no-load weekends, with exceptions for special events???? Jenn and Beate deserve some time off to spend with their families.

Pat | Aug 14, 05 | 2:40 am

image

Jenn and Beate, I think this is a great idea! We, of course, want time off for our families, and there is no reason why you shouldn't also. 24/7 on this site could get a little wearing. Have a great day, and see you back for DD Day.

mschoener | Aug 14, 05 | 4:27 am

Absolutely YES, you guys definitely deserve a day off and it is long overdue. I can't believe the hours you put into this site but know that all your hard work is greatly appreciated. This is the most incredible and awesome site I have ever seen!

Sandy | Aug 14, 05 | 5:42 am

image

Great idea. I don't know how you keep up and still have time to stamp. You deserve a day off. Thank you everyone at SCS, you guys are marvelous!!!

Amy | Aug 14, 05 | 6:00 am

What a great idea. Enjoy the day off to spend with your families. You guys do a great job maintaining the site and we all couldn't live without it.

Tanya | Aug 14, 05 | 6:35 am

image

I can't believe that you have gone this far without taking time for yourselves - talk about giving above and beyond to the rest of us!!

Why can't things uploaded on Sunday just wait until Monday for approval? How about just walk away from the site on Sunday and pretend it doesn't exist and people who don't read about no-load Sundays can just wait until Monday. You guys deserve a break even more than the rest of us ...

Shar | Aug 14, 05 | 8:51 am

That is a great idea. I think you guys deserve a day off a week!

amylou | Aug 14, 05 | 9:05 am

you guys rock!!and thank you for all you do!!!
Don't shoot me if i forget the first few sundays, but i think this is great and to see all the wonderful work that is often overlooked or never seen!

mamaof3insd aka kimberly | Aug 14, 05 | 9:34 am

I think this is a wonderful idea!!! I would also like to add my thanks and appreciation to Jenn and Beate. Y'all are super and have helped me many times.

Chyrl | Aug 14, 05 | 11:30 am

I uploaded a card earlier today before I read all these comments and such. My impression, at first, was that nothing would be approved until Monday. But after reading all this, I'm not sure. I do spend time with my family on Sundays, but also get a lot done like catching up on stamping and computer-stuff. I guess if everyone uploads stuff on Sunday, then the ladies have their hands twice as full on Monday with extra approvals? I'm not sure where to take a stand on this, and being new to the whole site makes it more confusing to me. Sounds like the majority opinion is to do nothing at all on Sundays.

Tammy Hershberger | Aug 14, 05 | 11:43 am

Awesome Idea. A day of Rest is what you all deserve, alot of hard work goes into maintaining this awesome site!! I think you should set 'business hours' like most business' do, cause this is WORK (with out much, if any, pay) to maintain this site.

ADK | Aug 14, 05 | 12:23 pm

A well deserved day off for two hard working Texas gals! Thanks for everything!

Julie C. (afancycat) | Aug 14, 05 | 1:34 pm

I, like everyone else, think this a wonderful idea. Though Sundays is the main day I upload I am not a bit frustrated or upset that these won't be processed until Monday. I had no idea that someone was actually looking at each picture and approving.
Thanks ladies for all you do to make SCS such a great site and resource.

Oh, DUH!!! I did not see this until I uploaded a card! So sorry! I agree Beate & Jen should get a break- this will give us crazed fans a break too!!!

Great Idea! Unfortunately I didn't read the notice before uploading my cards!
I was trying to be quick and sneak on the computer while the kids were watching a movie!!! I'll remember next Sunday - promise!

Jenn and Beate TOTALLY deserve a day to themselves. What a fantastic idea!

Catie | Aug 14, 05 | 6:29 pm

Awesome idea, thank you for all you do, and I think it should be no uploads on Sunday, PERIOD... no exceptions. Take a break!!!

Bridgette | Aug 14, 05 | 7:55 pm

Absolutely, you guys do such a wonderful job and deserve not to have to think about it every single day. I could go for both Saturday and Sunday free of downloads. I have such a time keeping up with the wonderful creative ideas everyone else submits that I have let it seriously cut into my stamping time. Maybe I'd get a chance to do my own cards then! I also would be lost without this website!! Thank you to everyone involved in maintaining it!

Great Idea! Give Jenn and Beate a well deserved rest! It is their weekend - let them spend some quality time with family (or their stamps)...

I think No Upload on Sunday's is great. Everyone needs a little rest and relaxation. Thanks for all the hard work that everyone puts into this site.

I think this is a great idea! It is like not working on Sunday. This is a day of rest and relaxation. (& time to catch up on crusing the gallery to see everything out there) Keep it up!!

A stroke of genius!!! Jenn and Beate, and their families, are LOOOOOOOOONG overdue for a day off.

MichelleY | Aug 24, 05 | 2:08 am

This is a wonderful idea! and so deserved by the incredible people behind the scenes!
I haven't been to the forums yet, but do you have a sticky there...
The way my computer comes up on the first page, I'd miss it except that I was looking for Beate's great Wednesday tutorials~ but,... see I missed last week when I went for her card organizer.
I'd just have a note on the upload area saying "no uploads, thank you".
By the way, is there a place someone could go to read about the whole story of how this site started and how its run... I think people often forget that there is always a human behind the scenes when we're dealing with the computer.
You guys are so appreciated!! Thank you!! thank you, thank you!

Lala (Laurie) | Aug 24, 05 | 6:58 am

Jenn and Beate definitely deserve a break on Sundays. I will do my part - no uploading on Sundays. Thanks guys for all you do to make this my happy place! :)
