I decided to try it. I signed up online yesterday for online only. I find the site very hard to get around. I was having an issue uploading my profile picture. I have just spent over an hour online in the "chat" feature. They were not able to help. They gave me a phone # to call. A woman answered and said she was going to put me on hold to get an answer. She hung up on me. I called back and cancelled my account! So not worth it! Back to daily Sparking! I LOVE SP!
