As this website has evolved we have tried different systems to engage with our visitors, we restricted the downloading of files to registered users, added a forum, and tried BuddyPress
We have concluded that visitors to our website, find us while looking for a solution to a problem and do not really want to engage with us, so we are making some changes to Digital Raindrops.
We will be removing the registration options at the end of September 2011, this will mean we will not have to renew the licence on our membership plugin and help to reduce the overheads of running this website by $100 a year.
We will also be removing the forum at the end of September 2011, the forum get very few visitors which means that we do not visit it as often as we should, there are a number of other well visited forums and we will be leaving the comments system open.
The content and downloads will continue to be uploaded and supported, no registration will be required, this means that if we update content or a download the only way a visitor will know is if they re-visit, as we will have no contact details.
After the comments below to this post, we have added a Feedburner Subscribe, if you want to be notified by email when we post please use this service.
Support Digital Raindrops
