most sites like this make their money off ads.

If FOC goes away how will Craftster generate $$ to pay for all of this?

I'd like to know this too. But tbh, I'd imagine the FOC revenues aren't much.

I'm only replying here to keep myself posted on any changes and also to play along with the acronym CCPA
my guess: California Canning Peach Association?

Thanks as always for the updates, look forward to the changes

I'm thinking that CCPA = Cunning Crafters Posting Acronyms!

Yep, very little came from it. Ads are the way that the bills get paid.

Oooooh thank you for the updates!

(But also hoping things run smoothly after FOC is phased out... One of the reasons I got the fanatic account was because the ads were glitching out my devices!! Smiley )

Yes, this!

FOC income was very nominal.  Much like the merch shop, we kept it going more for community than for the profit.

What will happen with the FOC Favorite Projects photos? Sounds silly, but that's the main thing I use; that and the other additional Profile Items. Will those become available to everyone? I really, really love that feature, and often use it when planning swap gifts and things, as well as just learning about each other.

Any ideas about this, awesome Mods?

I haven't heard confirmation back yet, but I am nearly positive they will remain & become available to all! Smiley
