Artistic Network 2008 Updates

Dear Members,

It has been over a year since I sent my last email to the members of this site. A lot has happened in that time on the Artistic Network. I would just like to share some of the things that have been going on.

First and foremost, I have added a new feature for members to remove the advertisements from their pages. I have received emails from several members requesting that I create a method to strip those ads. Since those ads are how I fund my web projects, I have had to make a way to replace ad revenue. As such, you can now pay an annual fee of $50 if you wish to remove the ads that appear on your profile, articles, events and guestbook. Login with your username and password to learn more about this feature.

Other changes I have done recently include various optimizations to make the site generally load faster. The site also works in smart phones. I have plans to jazz up the site visually with a new Flash-based front page. Any suggestions for that would be appreciated.

If you haven’t been to the site recently, I hope that you will take a few moments to view some of the new artists and art on the site. I also hope that you will help spread the word about the Artistic Network by adding links on your web pages or sharing the site with any talented artists, writers and musicians in your circle of friends.

Thanks for being a member. Stay creative and remember to share your work on the Artistic Network.
