Hi Drew, correct me if I am wrong:
Your have probably heard this saying "the Grass is always greener on the other side of the fence!" Been there, done that, NOT always true!

You probably heard, lets Abandon Ship.....I say Why?
I like it here, so I am staying!

I heard "I'm Getting Out Of Here"......Where ya going?
You gonna start over from the beginning?
Who has time for that!?!
What are you going to take with you?
Your website creations, I think NOT!

When places like this set up shop, you are creating what you see using "their software!"
Which means you can't transfer your creations somewhere else, because you used "their software" to create it.

SiteBuilderPlus or SiteBuilder Desktop program allows you to create your own webpages,
and the current owners have proprietary ownership, meaning.....
It is theirs, not yours to keep, so they won't let you move it somewhere else!

I guess you can copy and paste some of your stuff, to another location,
but that would be very time consuming depending on how big your site is!

For example: I have years worth of "HTML codes" I created and saved in the past, 
that have been tested to work in here, that is another reason why I am not going anywhere!

I have waited this long......so my wait continues! :-)
Peace Keith

And it's not so much that we won't let you take it. It's more that Sitebuilder uses proprietary elements that simply won't work on other services

I'm not going anywhere either.  I still use Sitebuilder Desktop for my website and quite frankly, I'm not having any of the problems that some of these folks have been been complaining about.  I think the longest I have to wait is when I'm booting up and logging in...which gives me a chance to go the fridge, nuke a slice of pizza, pour myself a drink, and then get ready to get some work done!  Vic out

I am also staying.  Business is picking back up and my sites are okay the way they are, no reason to make any major changes.  I love my sites and have no desire to start over somewhere else. It's Christmas so a lot of people are doing other things, by the first part of January we will probably all be in the black again. I bet 2015 will be a better year for all of us, gas prices down, employment up, more people with money in their pockets.  Hang loose, kids! (;>
Us neither - we love homestead and it has allowed us to create an awesome website.  Are there some glitches - of course but nothing is perfect.  I have suggested a few changes and I hope to see some things in the future but hey - I have never designed a web page and I think we have a pretty good one for a novice
Homestead is easy to use and access.  We are here and we will continue to be.
I also would like to say thank you to all of the people who answer all the questions...... you have been so helpful to me along this past 10 months and I am sure I will continue to need help in the future.  Your knowledge and patience is extremely valuable to me.

Hi Drew,
I think with all new programs there will always be growing pains.  I can't think of any new change that didn't come with some minor glitches that had to be worked out.  Ergo, we have many new and different versions of all the programs we currently use, whether its OS X Yosemite, Lollipop, Windows 10, Ubuntu 14.10, Firefox, Google, etc. etc.  If it was a perfect world, we would be talking to our computers without any mistakes, like on Star Trek.

Yea, but haven't you ever noticed how easy it is to hack the computers in Star Trek? It's like they added a bypass security button somewhere and it just does it.

True, but only for the members in the upper echelon...much like today. [DARPA]

LOL
See I look at it like this - the grass is not always greener in the next yard.  sure they may have a pool and lower prices and suck you in with fancy drinks and white teeth smiles.  BUT as soon as you hop the fence.....BOOM !  the price goes up, the drinks are sour, the pool is peed in and the grass dies.

Been there, done that!  I have had an IT department that moved servers from LA to TX and I know it was a disaster and our company was down (yes down ~ we had to go back to green bar for a month).  It was not easy but we made it.

Growing pains are just that, pains.  They hurt and we heal.....

However Drew if the mother company is listening to you - tell them next time they decide to upgrade, maybe not during the holiday/year end season....  just bad timing
