OK, my other blog is now hidden in the mountains of blogs that come in - but I think it is worth keeping this thread going.

Up until the other day, if you were a free member, you could view enlarged pics - any of them. Now, if the pic you want to see close up has been judged a nudie, you can't view without upping your membership to premium. To my way of thinking, this is just wrong!!! You don't encourage folks to pay for a free site by taking away what they've had right along. You offer them an incentive with new options that will encourage them go pay - or pay more.

If you agree - or even if you don't agree - leave a blog AND send a note to support to let them know. If no one speaks up, we'll just continue to have our 'rights' taken away...

I don't mean to sound mean, if you know what I mean, but I just want to speak up as well.
In defense of AMD. Yes it is a tiered site, they have free and premium services. While it is easy to get caught up in all the things you may wish free members could do, you should think about all the things, you can.

There is not another dating/sex/hook-up/whatever site like thins out there for free anymore. The closest thing there was died a long time ago, it adultmyspace. MD and AMD owned by online singles llc btw, is first and foremost, lest we forget, a buisness. That means they must be able to make payroll, buy bandwidth (expensive that is) allocate server space (I eat that up with my ramblings) advertise and pay the investors a return (don't want them yanking support now do we)

A web-site this size is not cheap to maintain, nevermind the code that went into building it. It takes oodles of code just to create this comment box. Not to mention the sign in screen. Da Bear goes through honey kinda quick too, its an old pic I hear he's quite chubby now....

Bottom line is, I worry every time "free shit" dissapears simply because I worry this site is in trouble. I know that if this site fails, there isn't anything else like it on the web. So if you don't enjoy the site any longer over something so trivial, please find another site, and share it's addy with us.

(I'll copy this to clip board in case you don't allow the comment)

I hear ya, but I think its AMD's way of promoting paid members.
We can still view and comment on non-nude photos.
Canu posted a blog that made a lot of sense.
It probably costs a great deal of money to maintain the site.
I'm with you on current rights being taken away, But everything evolves, and sometimes money becomes an issue.
Unfortunately, Its the American way my friend!
It sucks, but gas prices are sucking worse!!! Right?

ummmmm you could always mail the member and just ask for a better picture, however I dont care bout this option , at least they let you see thumbnail size pics, they dont have to do that ..... could block you from viewing any that are not clothed......

I think you are right it is surpose to be free and they let you view then take it away os real wrong ot wong it won't make people sign up it will only make people sign out and go to another site.
