Let's answer some commonly asked questions about our site
Why not? I originally built this website as a fun project to test the different technologies I was learning at the time. Now that I have a nice, working database driven website with lots of users, I decided to keep it up and make it into a brand. So, PureConnections.com was born. I'm not a huge, greedy, corporation. I don't have to answer to shareholders or a board of directors. I am the only employee and I'm not paying myself so there is no big bloated salaries to cover.
Yes and no. Hosting this website costs me hundreds of dollars a month. As my user base increases, so does the downloaded bandwidth which I am charged for by my cable company. I also have to pay 3rd parties for email service; cloud hosting of images; etc. So, I plan on one day adding a 'Premium' account level to help me pay for the costs of running this website. In return, 'Premium' members will be given a few more perks. But the basic functionality of this website will always remain free.
Anybody 18 years and older is encouraged to use this website. The language I speak is English so the website is written in Engish. But I have written the website to accept non-us characters. So, you can create your profile and respond to others in any language you want. My website should have no problem storing japanese characters; russian characters; etc. I would like this website to be global and internationally used.
