Will everyone be able to view member profiles with the upgrade or will it still only be accessible to those with premium memberships?

Yeah the blogs are definitely a nice upgrade from the journals we have now.

I avoid quoting multiple people often because it's a pain in the ass. This sounds soooo much better!


I have to be honest, when I read through Joel's post, I got nervous and a little upset, but it sounds like Andy and the mods are going to do a fantastic job!

Welcome to the community, Andy!

Joel, thanks so much for all of your hard work throughout the years!!

An advanced comment box for responses, save blog as a draft, searching blogs, report a blog entry.

Lots of fun stuff
Will we be able to see old journal entries that were swallowed up by posting more journal entries than was actually healthy?

I was also wondering this. If Interference is now officially someone's "investment," than is there still a need to have paid memberships?

Actually, I sorta have some questions along similar lines...

1) Will we be seeing any changes in the cost of premium, either up or down? I know Joel had raised it to keep up with site costs

2) This being an investment, are we going to be seeing more advertising on the site now? Cause that would make me sad.

Also, this might be silly, but when we switch over, will we lose anything like..journals or our PMs or anything like that?


Better yet, due to a mysterious fluke, can all our joining dates say we came into existence in the 1970s?


Thanks, and sorry if any of these questions are repetitive!

Welcome Andy!

Man...BrightestStar JUST beat me to a whole slew of questions I had.

When I joined the community more than seven years ago, I would never have thought of this place as anything more than a community. Now it is a money-making venture. I am pretty wary of that. Always have been.

I have been a Elvis cynic because I have always wanted a little more information on where the Premium money goes. I feel that if you are upfront with people on where the money is invested in, or if I can figure it out, I am a that much more comfortable with paying for a service.

I would love to see those types of posts from Andy. Build the trust from the beginning!

Further...as far as I know, the mods and admins have been tireless volunteers for too long. Will they or CAN they benefit from this venture?

I have been a part of a few other online communities, but NOTHING like interference.com. We (and I mean WE) have excellent moderators and admins who run a good, tight ship.

So, yeah. Welcome, Andy. Thank you Joel for building this community!

I admit, this is a partial motivation behind my questions.

Photo added. It's from my trip to Africa in February/March this year. We went to visit and learn about life in the townships. It was really a humbling experience. you feel so sad to see people living in such poor conditions but life goes on and they all seem to smile and be quite happy.

No, there is no plan to increase the cost of premium memberships.

Not really. As you can see there are a couple really old ads at the top of the page (Total Tickets and the Interference t-shirt ad). I plan to replace those with a single Google ad. The goal will be to try and fit a single ad up there while at the same time reducing the total size of the header so you don't have to scroll so far down the page to get to the content. (see attachment)

Journals will be brought over into a new system with more functionality. Nothing will change with your PMs.
