I am glad that nothing is being lost on the free site. I did join premium for the one time price of 29.99. Not having the ads is a blessing and I really like the daily SparkCoach since I am trying to get my motivation back. emoticon

I am glad to hear that the site will remain free. I would be very upset to lose it. I won't use the Premium site. Everything on need is here on the Free site. I don't mind the ads, that is what pays for the Free Site. I am happy to have the Free site. It has helped me very much.

Hi everyone!

I wanted to give you a heads up that we have a new feature, SparkPeople Premium, launching tomorrow! This new option will change nothing about the current site, which will continue to remain completely free. It's just an additional option for those of you looking for more from your SparkPeople experience.

Look for a new blog to be posted tomorrow with all of the details.

Thanks!

Coach Jen

I hope they keep this as the main portal and have extra for those paying, sort of like Amazon and Amazon prime .

I can't pay for it either. I think two sites will be strange. I mean what if one of your friends goes to the pay site...how would you keep in touch

I won't pay for access to a site. If they start making it a pay for site I will just leave. The ads don't bother me and I don't use an ad blocker either. I am just able to ignore it all as the same stuff surrounds my FB page as well.

I think making 2 sites would be a mistake. I don't even use most of the features on SP right now and don't bother with the app either. If I want to track my calories I can always do so on paper (won't get the breakdown on nutrients etc. but that doesn't bother me that much).

I agree I think a lot of weight loss sites including SP are struggling because they aren't offering people the quick fix they want and traffic on the site is really low. I look on my friend feed and it is the same 8 or 9 people I see consistently, there are some people on my friends list that I don't think I've seen activity from in close to a year. Then again, I was gone for a long stretch of time and this is the first chance I've had to be back on a more consistent basis in close to 2 years, maybe even 3.

I just hope it's not going to transition to pay only. I can't afford to pay so I'd have to stop coming to spark. The ads don't really bother me, so I wouldn't pay to have a version with no ads.

I also hope that if there are two sites they don't let the maintenance go on the free one.

I'm looking for my inner athlete, but I'm afraid I may have eaten her. If I'm very quiet I can hear her screams of terror.

The ads have never really bothered me. I don't think I want to pay to use the site. But I do want to see what they come up with

I am guessing it maybe a conversion between the current site and Spark Coach but with no ads. Everyone complains about the ads but I have found that simply using ad blocker plus takes them away completely. Right now, it says that there are 15 ads being blocked. I don't know if I would consider premium. I think SP is in a bit of trouble it seems like traffic is very slow on here. Maybe it is just the teams I am on, but I check my friend feed and hardly any activity. On the teams I am on there is very little posting that happens. It is kind of sad. Dunno. Will be curious to see what they do.

I know right. No really clues as of yet. They said they would have more details later. But they also said that this site would remain free. So if you go premium you will be on another website. So two spark people websites, not sure how that will work

I kinda wish they would stop playing around with everything here, but that is just me.
