What are you thinking!
Webring is an idea whose time never quite came and then it all but went.
Through it all, I have stuck it out, hoping that somehow it would get another shot.
This is not it. A subscription model for a site that is an anachronism when there are MUCH better FREE sites out there that offer richer social networking experiences and more productive ways to find what you are looking for.
This site should have been looking for a way to evolve this toward a more "Web 2.0" kind of experience. If you do not RETHINK your strategy, I believe that you are DOOMED!
