HELP AND UNDERSTANDING NEEDED

Effective 10/4/16 ning will be raising our monthly fees

from $79.00 to $139.00 a month.

They will be $119.00 plus $20.00 for the Paypal Feature

TOTAL $139.00 A MONTH

I have been racking my brain trying to figure a way to get around this, as memberships would not cover this.  I called and talked to NING and this is what I can do.

1)  Bring our MB down to below 10, currently it is 28.  The only way for me to do this is delete inactive members.  However it is not that easy (of course not).  I have to look at two screens, one shows if they are active and the other is where you delete them from.  I started this a few days ago and accidentally deleted two members, thank goodness Amarils was super nice about it...yes, I started with the A's.  Thank you Amarilis.  This is going to be a long process.  When Julia gets her skype up and going, I think if we skype and one of us reads the names and the other checks the boxes, where one person doesn't have to flip between screens, it will go faster and hopefully prevent these mistakes of deleting paying members.  I am so so sorry.

2)  We won't have phone support, everything has to be done through email.

3)  Our videos will have to be linked with youtube, or a video site like that and then the embeded code put here at MAS.  I think most of us do this, but there are some members that don't.  If we don't do it this way it would cost an additional $14.95 a month.

What does all of this mean?  It means I am trying.  I never talk about my financial situation, but I can't pay $140 a month for the site.  It will take a while to go through all the members, so I am prepared to pay the $139 for October.  Hopefully if we work hard, we can get through all the members and bring that MB to below 10.  We will have to delete pictures that have been on the site for a certain amount of time and ask that pictures that are not related to our crafts, not be posted. 

If anyone would like to pitch in and help with a small donation, I sure would appreciate it.  Just to get us through.  I am not shutting down the site, but it sure would make it easier on me. 

If all of this works out, we will actually downgrade, which in reality keeps us at the same rate, because the lower plan is being raised to what we pay now.

Make Sense? 

Thanks for taking the time to read this.  Donations can be made using the Donate button to the left.
