New Silver Package and Removal of Yola footer - suggestion...

Hi Yola. Love the Yola changes. However, agree with a few users re the Yola link removal now no longer available unless one purchases the silver package.

Feel this is unfair to those Yola users who are only using for themselves, or even designing for other people who cannot afford much (as they will be charging an amount for the design, and now... have to pay for, and charge, the other person - on top of their design charge - the additional yearly amount for the Silver package just to get the removal done). Feel a huge amount of Yola users do not need or wish to use all the features offered by the Silver package (which I do realise is great for those of us who need this, as a great jump from what we had before) - but not everyone wants to have the ability to use all that the Silver Package now offers.

Yola for many of the people using Yola for site design - believe you may be 'stepping away' a little from original offer to people .. to offer free hosting design at a really fantastic deal. The 'free hosting' possibility may be disappearing from the world today (by this I mean a site that offers so much to its members), but why not let people continue to have the free sites available to them and ability to pay to have the removal done without the Silver Package? But charge a fee of perhaps$30 each year ? This would then keep the cost down for them (especially in this world economic climate) this would then also pay towards the hosting of their site, with removal fee included. ???

Anyway just a thought.

Just to add, The Silver Package is really great, but honestly do believe that many users simply do not wish to use or have all the extra bits and just wish to have the 'basic' but with ability to pay for removal of footer.

Hi JC,

Thank you so much for your constructive feedback about the new Yola. We are glad to hear you are liking the changes, and appreciate your thoughts on the changes we have made regarding some of the ala carte options.

Premium Style were removed as an ala carte feature about a month ago, so removal of the footer has been available only with Yola Silver for a short while already. We can definitely understand people's desire to purchase certain features ala carte, as not everyone needs all of the offerings of Yola Silver.The changes we have made were thought about for a long time and we did consider the various impacts there would be.

We will be rolling out various packages at different price points in the future in an effort to accommodate everyone's needs. What you are asking for is something that might be an offering later on. Again, thank for your letting us know what you are interested in!

Kind Regards,
Emmy

Emmy, thank you for reply on this. As have been 'away' from yola for a while, did not realise the ability to take off footer had been gone for a while. These were just suggestions from me for future perhaps. Thanks again. J
