ok so the upkeep of the site will be increasing in july (actually for most it will be less then we pay but because of the high number of pics and the activity on the site we will want to go with the pro level)the costs will be double what were paying now, which maybe fineour 1st month accepting donations we made enough to cover the increased costs.we will have to see what the next month brings inalso the run your own adds is included so the google adds on the right will now pay into site upkeepall ning links will be removed toowe will have an option as well for paid membership (i dont want to do this but maybe we can look into a non paid and paid version? ill have to look into it)other improvements , more text boxes in the main page and in personal pagesfull api control (need to see what that will mean for us)you can also use twitter facebook myspace logins to login herei believe bigger vid uploads maybe more music i gotta look into all the finer detailshttp://about.ning.com/announcement/ that link has all the details of the new plansfor the time being, if its acceptable to all id like to consider suspending the donation gifts program until august (unless members donate non cash gifts that can be re-gifted to members like the beads giapet donated)i just want to be sure we have enough from donations to cover everything when this changes over and see what comes in from advertising too.we can then consider doing multiple gifts if things go well.after that if advertising brings in enough to cover costs we'll stop the donations all together.i would like this to affect the members as little as possiblebut i also want to keep the site growing and as useful as possible.i believe we have the potential to become the best dreadlock site and the most active (in a couple years)im working hard around the clock right now at increasing our visibility and getting us to the top of the searches. the work im doing today should see a drastic increase in traffic over the next couple months.you may have noticed alot more people joining recently, thats the result of just a slight increase in traffic. i'm aiming at a 50% increase (i hope) in the next 2 months by the time this new plans in place.i hope in about 2 weeks you will notice some results of the work im doing todayas the site grows i may need a couple volunteers to help with a few thingsand especialy someone familiar with it asp csi all that fun stuff and if the site grows enough ..might even be able to offer paid positions (seo help too)all members who havent yet can help brong us to the top by installing the alexa toolbar and browsing the site http://www.alexa.com click toolbarour alexa ratings improved by over 100,000 points just by 2 or 3 of us adding it..if 100 or more add it we'll be doing greatthe increased cost wont hurt us if we keep growingyou can help by adding the toolbar and by donating until things switch over

i agree and my $ situations probly the worse of all..loland sister you already contribute in so many waysSister Rags said:
Thank you, SE, for keeping us up to date on what's happening and all the possibilities. I see this site as having immense potential with regard to dreading info and also expanding out into the dread journey that includes the journey of the spirit, brothers and sisters of a family on this here planet earth. (And if some dreaded Martians wanna join, that's cool, too ; ) .)

This is one forum I would be willing to be a paid member of, donate, and help out in ANY way I can. You know my $ situation sucks, but I am willing to do what I can. I wish I was more computer-literate...can't say I have the knowledge to do much with programs, etc., but whatever I can help out with, lemme know and I'm here.

I installed the alexa toolbar last week and it was 100% EASY to do, so please people, install it and let's work toward getting our more known and accessible.

well what spyware scanner do u use its a false readingit might be concidered spyware by really bad scanners that saee malware themswlves because it does report to alexa what pages your looking at thats how alexa rates pages and most search engines use alexa ratings as part of how important a page is ti nbe listed highits the same as having a neilson boxc on your tv to rank your tv prefferences and thats how tv shows ger rated the 1 percent that have those boxes determine whats on tv and whats cutso the mpre ppl using ut using the site the higher we get ratedSeven :) said:
