SixApart is requesting feedback from MT users about how they use the product. In particular, they're looking for data from people like Ginger who run multiple and multi-author non-commercial blogs. If that describes you, speak up!
My situation is easy - I'm a sole author of a single blog. I do now participate in two group blogs, but I have no authority over the former, and the latter is unlikely to need an MT upgrade any time soon. All that said, I can foresee a day where I might want a second blog or a second author - I've been trying to persuade Tiffany that blogging software will make posting baby pictures for family and friends to see much easier than a commercial package plus FTP would. So, while I've got no problem with the concept of paying for a new version of MT, I'd just as soon not have to worry about per-seat licensing. One non-commercial-use install should mean one license, in my opinion.
Regardless, I'm not the one who's going to be greatly affected by all this. I may never be more than a one-blog shop. I do appreciate SixApart's efforts to hear their customers out (which, let's face it, they should have done first). Make sure your voice is heard, too.Posted by Charles Kuffner on May 18, 2004 to Blog stuff | TrackBack
