No More Gold Balls

Today I am no longer a gold member and I am testing how this impinges on my enjoyment of the Friendly Site.

1) I’ve found out I can’t make the dates of the EuroMeet [loud sob], but paying more for membership won’t change that.
2) Movement around the site is very slow, but that may be my local server, so paying more for membership won’t change that.
3) I thought I might not be able to see photos on the blogs, but I can.
4) I wasn’t sure about the chat room, but that still works for me.
5) I know my search privileges have been slashed, but that’s fine because in the main people seek me out and I meet most of my friends through the blogs
6) I find I can reply to a number of emails, that’s enough for me!
7) I haven’t received a single one of those ghastly one-liners from standard members young enough to be my son. That’s a relief.
I can no longer initiate an email from someone’s profile. It’s not the end of the world. I can leave a message on their blog; although there was something a little bit personal I wanted to say to XIITheHangedMan . . . .

So life’s not perfect after all.
Anyway, my Christmas savings will grow fatter and I hope to keep in close touch with my friends who I meet off this site.

I just hope you never go away, Polly.

I have come to like the world where "Polly" (and jeanne) are a part of it!

Lots of hugs, unlisted

I let my account lapse into standard back in September. I am managing okay. I just used the premium membership to view profiles connected to my blog visitors. Not to find a date. I mostly miss the e-mail features though. Although my email activities are also mostly connected to blogging too.

Candy, oooh, that's why I can initiate emails. I was going to say I am a standard member and I have had no problems doing that. Limited email contacts are fine, although keithcancook rescued me one time and emailed someone for me when I could not. (I never ended up meeting the guy Keith. Oh well. He was married anyway, fate was hurrying me towards my 'no married guys' rule.)

I must get lots of hits from going into chat and also from blogging.

Wish I could see more than previews of the camera action sometimes though.

and if you want to really see someone's profile,
try googleing. i find it odd that this site won't
let a standard member see a profile, yet i can
conceivably as a non-member.
