Five eggs update

I have just found this by checking the thread, NOT my email which they had not responded to directly, and it would appear this is the only reply I’ll get now.

The thread link is here below …………. feel free to join it.

This was my email response yesterday:

Hello
This is all well and good from where you’re sitting, but I do not pay for my site and ‘affordable add ons’ go very much against the grain.
Do I have 3GB of storage or not?
Am I limited to 10,000 visits a month or not?
I thought FREE means I do not have to pay anything which was the deciding factor for joining WordPress in 2013.
I am not a business, I am a hobby blogger. I do not need or use half the fancy add ons, apps and gizmos to generate income.

Hey there @pensivtivity101, we’ve raised your questions along with the concerns other folks had, and shared some answers here: https://wordpress.com/forums/topic/pricing-feedback/

Would you mind sharing any further feedback in that thread? Having the details in one thread with a post we can update helps us locate and quantify the different requests so we can work on addressing them. I’m tagging this thread with feedback as well, but we’ll be posting updates and responses here:

Thanks in advance – we’ll close this thread for now.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    I think this applies to my site. ———Are existing sites affected by these changes? No. These new plans only apply to new sites created after March 31, 2022. If you have a legacy plan, you are welcome to stay on it.

    If you have a free site created before this pricing update, you can choose to stay on that legacy free site or you can choose to switch to the new Pro Plan.

    Oh, this is good news! I am clearer now on all of this. I really think they should’ve been clear from the get go. X

    I went to the links and it is all very muddy. They did a rotten job of communicating the changes. I’m just glad I am on an established free plan and won’t be going to the new versions (this news had me in heart palpitations!!)

    Thanks for the link, Di. I went to the first link and posted this:

    “I understand the hassle of maintaining a free plan plus four paid plans, but to move from there to a scaled-back free plan and an expensive “professional” plan geared toward business users and e-commerce seems extreme. I’m on the Personal plan now and it very much meets my needs as a casual “hobby” blogger. Why not meet in the middle and offer three plans: Free, Pro, and a third plan that is like a hybrid of the Personal and Premium plans? And charge $96/yr for that hybrid plan. I think that would meet the needs of a large percent of WordPress bloggers who don’t need or want all of the e-commerce bells and whistles, but are willing to pay for no ads, more media space, and a few other features of the Personal/Premium plans.”

    I think we are okay for now. Let’s cross the bridge when we come to it.
