There has been a few changes in dA recently. I don't really spend that much time here anymore but I've always kept my premium membership (now core)
just because I really like the features and all. Recently I've found out that the price for a year's worth has spiked up from the usual $29~ish-something
to a whopping $50
Can I afford it? Yes.
Will I renew my subscription?
I don't stay as frequent as I used to here anymore. The people I used to follow and chat with have long gone and I don't if any of them are still active. I still want to post my photographs but I don't have much time to always be here religiously. With that being said, I don't think I would keep my core membership. Paying $50 and visiting like once every two weeks isn't worth it.
I still have four months to decide anyways but in the mean time keep in touch!
I won't really be leaving, I'd still post every now and then like I do now.
