YIT has moved to a new membership based system. After 5 years of operating as a donation only service in conjunction with Gulf Harbour Radio, YIT has decided to become a separate entity. To counter the rising costs of the YIT servers and especially the software providers such as Google and WindyTY, who have moved to user pays, YIT has decided to move to a totally separate membership based system. ( Googles 3000% price increase is a prime example of a users pays system where arms and legs are the currency )
This move towards memberships will future proof the site and allow for development of necessary functionality such as the new free App currently under development, for mobile devices, for all new membership types.
All current members have been migrated to a trial membership which lasts for 30 days. Members are encouraged to upgrade their account before their trial membership expires so any updates sent in are not effected. If you need more time, or are having any issues at all please do not hesitate to contact me ( firstname.lastname@example.org ).
Those cruisers that have generously donated towards YIT this year will have their memberships upgraded automatically. Also those that have contributed heavily to adding locations such as anchorages, or testing of YIT functionality will also have their memberships upgraded.
All questions and comments are welcome in this thread.
