The Ark

Whatever floats your boat...

Hey all.  I just got word that Ning is upping their fee once again.  I'm so grateful to all of you who've helped to keep this boat afloat all these years, but there's no way I can continue considering they're doubling the monthly fee beginning October 1st.

So unless anyone else wants to take the wheel, I'm gonna have to call this place quits the very last week of September. I'm so sorry. I dreaded this moment.  I want to send out an email to all members, but I figured I'd wait a couple of weeks so that those who visit more regularly will have a heads up and happen upon this on their own rather than get an impersonal all-call.

Are you guys on Facebook?  I'm not a big fan of it (only use it for immediate family members) but I'd be willing to get on there and look for you if it means we could stay connected.  

If you have any better ideas, drop 'em here. 

Gonna go mope around now.

UPDATE: Chig's takin' the wheel!   

Gonna go dance now.

So first I want to say that my experience at LiveVideo and then the Ark have been an amazing part of my life and a privilege. I have met MOST of my favorite humans of all time in those 2 endeavors. This is very sad but also understandable. I hope you will be leaving the Ark page up on Vimeo (unless they start charging a fee).

I hope everyone here will open a free account over there and connect to the Ark page>

It's not as "Front Page-User Friendly" but we'd still be able to send messages to each other and see each other's videos.

I am not on FaceBook but there is an imposter there who also has a Pinterest account but they spell my Moniker wrong. It's kind of hilarious as they have me listed as a Tea Partier. I just signed up for Pinterest because a friend is there but I would warn you that you'll get loads of push-e-mails from them if you choose to sign up. Is Vloggerheads going down too ?

My life is so regimented for health reasons now that I don't have the resources or time to take the boat myself or I would. You've been an awesome Captain Syd. Please keep in touch. And all yous guys here, please do the same. *Big sigh* "....nothing gold can stay "

Amy, I'll definitely check out the settings on the vimeo group to make sure I get updates and I'll see what else I can do on there to make it more Arkian-friendly.   

I'll send an email to all members in a week or two. I wanted members who visit here more often to get the word here first before getting  a general email message.  

And Amy, stop trying to hide your Tea Party status.  We've all known for some time now that you were secretly the president of the Sarah Palin Super Fan Club.

Ha! President of the Sarah Palin Super fan Club... it all makes so much sense now! Just out of curiosity how much is it a month? (ning not the fan club)

Hey Trim- It's been $25 a month for the past few years, but they're upping it to $60 starting October 1st.

Is the 60 buck/month just for what we have now, or does that permit upload of video?

Comment by SydTheSkeptic on September 3, 2016 at 9:25pm

It's for what we have now.  HERE's the info.

All plans are doubling.

Hmmmm.....   Being the 10th anniversary of LV... Hate to see it go down like this.  60x12 is 720 bones for a year extension?  Does the current 49 buck plan permit upload?    In october would that be 1200 bones annually?

IS Ning 3.0 cheaper than our current ning 2.0?

Comment by Chig on September 3, 2016 at 10:03pm

Hmm...   Looks like Ning is committing financial suicide to me.   On facebook they haven't posted since May of this year.    I will keep things afloat another year.... but only if Ning continues.   1 month notice is too short to make plans.
