“Human beings are free except when humanity needs them. Maybe humanity needs you. To do something. Maybe humanity needs me—to find out what you’re good for.” ― Orson Scott Card, Ender’s Game

This is an open and urgent appeal to those members of the Word Press executive team who have deemed it necessary to cancel the Daily Prompt service that many new and not so new members of the site have come to rely on for guidance and an effective forum to present their creative works.
I hope you realize that you are effectively pulling the corporate rug out from many of us who have used and depended on this valuable service for years.
The question is this: if you cancel this instructive forum what alternatives do the folks who contribute to this site have to turn to?
What about those folks like myself who pay the yearly fee to have their own site.
Your finance division has sent me a notification telling my that my yearly fee is due July 1 this year or else I will forfeit all rights to use the name and site.
If the Daily Post told is voided can I then expect a refund of the money I have paid until this July 1st deadline?
If it is merely a matter of money why don’t you just ask users to pay a stipend to keep the service running/
Why not take the high ground and assist those new users whom your site is asking to take your writing and blogging course.
Your action to eliminate the service is baffling many of us.
It appears that the Word Press family is more than eager to throw the baby out with the bath water.
Such a waste and a pity for a site as popular as yours. – gc
