I found out today that I'm a "core" member now. I thought they had downgraded my account at first, but no, that's actually what DA is now calling their members that have paid to upgrade their accounts beyond free access to what used to be called Premium Membership. Oh well, it's just a designation, even if it is a confusing and stupid one as "core" implies the standard set of account tools, not the upgraded set that we've actually paid for.

The bigger issue is that they've doubled the cost of the Premium Membership...err, sorry, the "core" membership.  To me that's a deal breaker. Frankly, I had really only upgraded my account to turn off those damn ads, and I've been able to take advantage of the BOGO deal DA does around Christmas. At $50 dollars though...I don't know, It's not that I can't afford it, it's just that it's not worth it to me.  With many of the talented photographers that I enjoy following leaving to other sites, DA's value has dipped below that "need to have" level. 500x or maybe one of the other sites might be getting my money from now on.
