    Hello All!

    Going to be giving the site a facelift as well as doing some upgrades. With that will come a change in the way covers are offered.

    Anyone with credits will keep them, but subscriptions will be phased out--credits will continue to be used vs. the site, and there will be other ways to get them other than just contributing or paying.

    We recently had some issues with paypal after 8 years. They decided the site no longer meets their acceptable usage policy, and, without warning, pulled the plug on our account.

    So--to the other cover sites out there, make sure you pull your money out of paypal now, and look for another provider if you need it. They recently modified their AUP:

    "items that encourage, promote, facilitate or instruct others to engage in illegal activity PayPal requires pre-approval to accept payments for certain services as set out in 6 above and detailed in the chart below. Offering online dating services; providing file sharing services or access to newsgroups; or selling alcoholic beverages."

    That broad statement basically describes 99% of the Internet. Paypal was already a fairly shitty service (pardon me) --this just gives me an excuse to stop using them. Hopefully the rest of the Internet does the same. The only thing that it's good for now, is eBay--and eBay has turned into an overpriced garage sale and retail items selling for higher than retail prices.
