Commercialization of ChoralNet
Date: November 8, 2011
In a post in another forum on a completely different topic, someone wrote: " Creating premium membership services that are monetizable for ACDA will eventually benefit the site. Give most content for free but allow special services for a price. Yahoo has free email. I have several accounts. In order to get all of my email forwarded to one account I need to pay a premium. Wordpress is an excellent free blogging software but they have special services for a price. This is a template used all accross [sic] the web. Recognize members of the elite club with a special icon."
I, for one, would hate to see ChoralNet turn into any kind of economically-tiered website, with some (most?) users being able to access "most" content/services, while others ("members of the elite club") with greater financial resources are able to access "special services."
Generating enough resources to keep any organization and its services functioning well is extremely challenging now, I realize, but I sincerely hope that ChoralNet maintains its "ALL content/services available to ALL" mindset as it undergoes its transition and redesign.
