    Christina – though I don’t understand the idea of it not being “fair”, I do understand your frustration considering I had never protected the pictures before. In the past I only lowered the resolution or placed a watermark on the photos posted to the site. However, I purchased this additional hosting site for the galleries in hopes that it (1) lessen the time that I previously spent having to resize images for the web site each weekend, (2) provide some cool features such as Rate this Photo and post a comment, and (3) provide an easier way to order photos, sparking an increase in the number of photo purchases.

    You still have the option to download the photos to your computer, just not for free. Sorry. Add the photo to the shopping cart and you will see the different options – prints, products, downloads. You can download the original, high resolution photo to your computer. Trust me, that .75 cents for a 4x6 isn’t profit. The company that hosts the photos takes out their fair share for developing and credit card processing.

    SORSN.com doesn’t make any money, has never made any money, and most likely never will make money; although it would be nice. The goal, however, is not to lose money – which it does do well. We do the site because it’s fun, and will continue to as long as it remains so.

    If anyone would like an itemized report of what it cost to run the site, send me an email and I will be glad to share with you what “not fair” really is.

    Thank you

    Shawn, I dont see why people are complaining for. You take time out of YOUR LIFE to come to our ball games and take pictures of us using YOUR MONEY and people want to complain about 75 cents for a picture. For those who want to complain about 75 cents go buy yourselfs a camera and take pictures and see how much it will cost then. Shawn keep SORSN the site is awesome and you are to if you have any problems the football team has your back.

    Shawn, four years ago when we were heavily involved in Little League Football our phone rang off the wall from people from Kingston wanting to know how to get on SORSN.com to look at pictures of their kids. Imagine Midway having something that Kingston didn't have!! This site has been a great addition to Midway Athletic Program. The added recognition to the players, the fan participation, the personal interviews with coaches and players plus the history that most of us would never get a chance to even know has been great. We have been involved with Midway Athletics for several years and have come to realize that some people with very little thought or knowledge of the time and effort that goes into such things can make such hurtful and thoughtless comments as those made below. Your site has helped bond this community and with the help of so many good people that are involved with our youth leagues and our middle school programs, actually hundreds of volunteers willing to give their time without complaint and then to think someone would wine about 75 cents just amazes us. Please take the criticism in stride, continue the great work on the website and know that the nay sayers are few and far between. We support you 100%! Barry & April Narramore

    The SORSN website is very important to me as a SOR fan. What is .75 cents for a picture of your child doing something they love? You can't please everybody. Keep up the good work Shawn!!!

    I just purchased several pictures from the gallery. I would much rather pay for pictures than miss the game because I'm too busy trying to take pictures of my son. Thanks SORSN!
