      Ok I am a bit miffed here..I joined this site because it was free and not geared for Men at all..I love this site because I have made many wonderful friends and it's a place I can be Me...I was MIA for a week or so and when I got back I tried to log in on one of the private groups I am in and now I can't be a part of it unless I pay for a full membership...WTF..I think this is a shitty thing to do. Now maybe for some it's affordable..But for me I can't spend money on things like this..I am unemployed and headed for back surgery with no insurance..So to me this amount or any is way more than I can afford..I feel like my dedication and time I have spent, as all of you have, to bring this site up to where it is and still growing..means nothing but $$$ So now I am limited to access on here..I just feel very hurt and to be honest pissed off...I guess it is sad but true everything has a price and it's all about money..I was just hoping that for once it was about bringing people together and giving them a safe place to open up and be themselves...I will till stay on..I just have to deal with the limitations... Sorry needed to vent...

        • It’s good to hear you will stay! It does suck but to be honest I knew it had to happen sooner or later, because it’s so expensive to keep up a site like this, especially the bigger it gets.

          The timing may have been bad, or was it, the economy is so bad that Yana also couldn’t just keep paying out of pocket, so I understand.

        • I feel you in your miffed‘ness (is that a word)?  I felt the same way...as if a good thing was being taken away but I have found that I can still participate with these wonderful women by commenting and or emailing.  You’ll get over it in a day or two.  In the meantime, have a wonderful day!

        • I do understand about the cost of keeping the site up and I will still be here just not able to join the private groups..I guess it just came at a really bad time for me cuz I am unemployed and I don't know how I will pay for this surgery..I have put in for public assistance here in Kentucky..but I hear they don't let many people on it...I guess just put it in God's hands and let it go... Thanks Ladies Your All Wonderful..  

          cmrobert I think it is a word..Ummm maybe not..Iam not sure..LOL 0,o

        • Rene, we are still here.  To be honest, currently there is not much activity in the private group so you have not missed out on anything.  Like other said, we can imagine it is expense to upkeep, maintain and run the site - think about the cost in feeding those Ding Crazy Engineers to keep us happy.  I worked with a company that needed a server and I knew how much it costs to buy computer equipment, back up server, etc.    

          Look positive - look at the friendships we have here.  

          I always enjoy seeing you online and reading about your blog.  Do not let this ruin your day or add any kind of darkness that take away all you sweet positive vibes.  

          XOXOXOX

        • I’m fairly new to this site.  I have tried to check out certain groups and I found you have to have so many points, etc.  Out of curiosity, how much does it cost to join a private group?  I didn’t know there was a charge.

        • Theres no cost to join a private group but you have to have a premium membership which is $40. As a basic you can still do everything you did before more or less. Go look at Yana’s profile. She had a few blogs on the membership.

          And I do believe miffedness is a word.....

        • Rena, I am with you! I didn’t know about the restrictions, but I don’t like the idea. I can relate to how you feel! Why does everything have to be so commercial!?

        • For the newcomers, Yana has been talking about that since last quarter of 2008.  It is not a surprise to us.  I can’t speak for her but I am sure she does not want to do it either.  Again, I am a paid member.  For me, I just think that’s part of my appreciation to the site, the crews and its founder.  I could have passed and I have chosen not to.

          We have this discussion and we basically respect each other decision.  No harm, no fowl.  We move on and keep doing whatever we used to do - to be honest, we were given much and just a little bit is taken away - a little bit, not much.

          I am sorry if I keep talking ... I really like it here and I hope you all concentrate on the benefits. happy
