Update: Seed Account Re-sale, Free Users + Custom Styles

Two things for you today!


Thing the first:

We have not been able to finish and fully test the new site functionality that enables people to purchase accounts without a PayPal account. Instead of finishing it up an hour before the first sale is scheduled and crossing our fingers that it works, we've decided to push the sale off another week.

The new time of the Seed Account re-sale is Thursday, May 14th, 9PM EDT and again at Friday, May 15th, 9AM EDT. In total 200 accounts will be available.


Thing the second:

People with free accounts have probably noticed that a few days ago we took away the Advanced Customization area of the site. (The pages that let you make a custom style.) We had never intended for it to be available unless you paid, and having it on was an oversight on our part. After we turned it off, we got to hear a lot of really good comments from people and we reevaluated the original decision.

We've turned it back on, but gave free users a pretty low limit on the number of styles you can create (1 custom style, up to 5 layers). Short story: you can once again go back to customizing and importing styles from other sites. Sorry for the trouble!

While we can create ONE custom style. If we delete that one, can we create another?

It doesn't seem to be that way at the moment. Even after deleting a previous a custom style (for a community, in this case) I still can't create a new custom style; I'm told I've reached my limit.

Just wanted to bring that to your attention,
and to say THANK YOU. ♥



Please ignore the fact that I am apparently a huge dork. Either this issues been fixed (y'all are pretty fast ;)) or the site just needed time and my patience, as the style I created that wasn't showing up is now. ::g::
