Good evening out there… Today it’s våffeldagen or Marie Bebådelsedag here in Sweden, I haven’t eaten any våfflor today BUT I quit from crafthaus this evening…
“The annual fee of $20 (or $35 for 2 years) became necessary because of the tremendous popularity of the website, expressed through the growth in member numbers, and the sheer volume of member added content such as photos, videos, music, and so on. For the past months already, the editor of the site had to purchase additional bandwidth to keep the website from "freezing" and to allow continued growth for the benefit of everyone. These fees were paid for by the editor out-of-pocket, but obviously, that cannot go on indefinitely, and the decision was made to have crafthaus be a fully member-supported website - starting now ! “
I’m glad that it is a popular site, but I thought from the beginning (and then I have read it very badly, sorry!) that it was as some kind of “facebook” a´la craft… But I don’t want to pay to be in; I stick to my blog for free and hope to join Klimt02 some day instead of this.
I absolutely understand that people want to be paid or take some money for their work, but I also think that some kind of limit can be, so “we” can do it for free… as far as I know the blog system are still free and then I can lay all my energy at the blog.
