I've seen groups change their minds pro and con hosting here and otherwise. I've also seen groups who want more traffic at their sites who originally wanted to let people rehost but then, well, got lonely at the lack of feedback on their site
. You also see groups posting, "We're not dead yet!" and then the site is taken down years later.
My idea is to offer *the groups* more flexibility. If their reason for not allowing rehosting is they want more activity on their own site, well, if real life happens to get in the way of their group's existence, then along with their site or whatever else lapsing they've preserved their work for future fans on a respectful site, not just the disrespectful ones.
If Batoto doesn't offer such an option, then groups are much less likely to consider it.
Anyway, just an idea. To be clear, I was not suggesting something Batoto would impose, because that's not what Batoto does. It would just be offered, even just passively.
I'm chronically ill, btw, and probably I won't be able to get back to this thread, so either way, thanks for all your hard work!
