Just FYI, GG is doing some early Spring cleaning as we prepare our site for the future, as of today, I personally deleted over 5,000 people that have not been active in the past year.

Our goal is to encourage activity, both on the forum and keeping portfolios current. Please let the word out to your GG friends, they need to login from time to time, at least once per year we ask.

This latest purge will also help us as soon we'll announce the two-week buffer period where all Photographer Premium Members only, NOT MODELS, will have the choice to renew or upgrade--a word to the wise, upgrade to Lifetime status now and avoid the price increase and rush.

At the end of that two-week period, the system will automatically purge (delete down) all Premium members that did not renew, their accounts will revert back to Free status, that means all but your first five images will be removed (erased) from our database and the remaining five images will be resized smaller--and people have to login to view your portfolio and you get less benefits (hey, it's free).

If for some reason you miss the renewal or upgrade during that period, and two weeks have gone by (when the period expires) we cannot resize and reload your images, you'll have to start over. Just FYI.

Thanks and everyone have a great, safe and Happy New Year! Thanks, rg sends!

Will you be deleting "stale" model profiles, too? I know there are many who haven't logged in more than a year.

It applies to all, we've gone back so many days, in the next few days I'll go even farther. But yes, as we purge, it applies to all. Thanks, rg.

Lifetime Status is the deal of the century. Considering what other sites charge for an annual subscription, I can't think of even one reason not to take the Lifetime status deal here. Frankly, I think it's waaaay too cheap...but I jumped all over it before you came to your senses!

Dale- I’ll ditto that, I just stepped up and swung for the fence. After teetering back and forth, I made my decision after reading through Don’s “Whats your background� thread. I figure the cost of a Lifetime Membership on GG is well worth the insight and experience one can glean from hanging out with this bunch. And, frankly, it is much more enjoyable than a photog class down at the rec-center!

Now of course for accounting purposes only [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img], if one needs to, one can rationalize the cost of the membership by saying that he would be avoiding Starbucks for a short period of time or by perhaps skipping his poker game with the guys will more than make up the price of a GGLM! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]

I'm thinking the poker game will do it.
Yep, "that's my story and I'm stickin to it"

Rolando, thanks for doing this as the owners of that Other Place only seemed to remove the non-model users. Models' portfolios hang around for years I know as I have a few bookmarked that have not been active for over 700 days!

Mind you, there was one model who just about 2 weeks ago updated her information and photos...after it was inactive for nearly 2 years!

You just never know. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]
