NO! I Am Sorry.
I was rather surprised to see a poll from CoralLevang asking us how much we were prepared to pay for continuing as part of the Persona Paper community.
bestwriter had already asked us whether we were willing to write for free for continuing here. While I found bestwriter's idea reasonable , paying the site owners for letting us write here is not a good one.
Just before Elite Visitors closed down, some friends of the owners asked the members to write for free.Some left but some stayed.But even then I am not aware of anybody asking the members to pay the site owners.
I know Coral says this is only a suggestion.What I was surprised to see was the response by elitecodex.While Coral levang may suggest the members pay the site owners ( who it seems are her friends ) to pay for continuing here, it seems he is willing to receive donations from us.He did not suggest it because he thought it would alienate us.
Of course there are people who are prepared to pay to continue writing here. I am not one of them. Some may pay because it is Coral Levang who is saying this. If the suggestion had come from some body else,the reaction would have been different.Personally,I think once it has been decided to shut down,you should do that. We have expected this and accepted this. Of course finding another buyer to run this site is an option.
If the idea is to be a part of a group where there are only 10 or 15 close friends,you can form a group in Face book with only members from the favorite countries.
Will Persona Paper accept new members from Philippines and India if they are willing to pay more?
All are not that rich so that we could pay the $25 per year that elitecodex suggests to continue writing here.At least I am not going to pay and continue here.No,Thanks.
