People wanted a Member Only Chat room. We created one. People wanted a completely anonymous chat room, so we created that as well. The end result? Everyone crammed into the anonymous chat room. The Member Chat Room went largely un-used and the number of complaints we received about trolls and anonymous chatters went through the roof.
As a result, we've created a compromise. We are back to just one chat room. To enter, you either need an account in the URNA system or a subscription. A little of one or a little of the other. That's not too much to ask is it?
After a... [more]
Well, it looks like Jon took the plunge and created a twitter account for URNotAlone! He's still figuring it out though, so let's help him out.

Let's welcome Jon to the Hivemind.
Vicky and I are in our new temporary home in Miami Beach, Florida and plan to be in this location for a few months while we look for a permanent home to settle into somewhere in this area.
We closed on our house in Boston on Friday, 2/27/09. On the morning of Saturday, 2/28/09, we got in our car and headed South, making numerous stops along the way, visiting friends and family and arrived in the Miami Area on Wednesday, 3/4/09.
It's been a long time coming and we're both enjoying our new temporary place in Miami Beach and we're loving the warmer climate. We're bac... [more]
While Vicky, Dan and I normally attend Tiffany Club of New England's (TCNE) First Event each year, this year, for a variety of reasons, we will not be able to attend, however, we highly recommend First Event to anyone that is able to attend. It is an awesome event and if there were any way we could be there, rest assured, we would.
We had a suggestion from one of our Members / Chat Monitors, Cranberry Kris, that any URNA Members who are attending, might want to wear an URNA name tag as a way of readily identifying themselves to fellow URNA Members. To that end, we've attatched a... [more]

Stupid People Should Not Breed... (Sep 7, 2008)
Ok, I normally don't post stuff like this, but I'm posting this very long back and forth thread of correspondence to give people an idea of what we occasionally have to deal with and, I must admit, because this person has pissed me off to such an extent that I feel the need to embarass them.

URNotAlone: Changes to Mail and Chat (Apr 23, 2008)
We've recently made changes to the requirements for sending Mail to Members and to enter URNA Chat. For years, we've had people who would create profiles and leave them pretty much blank, just to be a nuisance and harass people in Chat or to send SPAM to our Members. Lots of our Members have asked u... [more]

Seriously? Oh for fucks sake! (Dec 2, 2007)
Sometimes, you just have to wonder what people are smoking. We recently had a back and forth exchange with a very confused and very angry lady.
She made the baseless assertion that URNA was "selling her photos" as a "shemale". It's amazing what the addled mind can come up with sometim... [more]

Ratings have been discontinued (Oct 15, 2007)
October was the last month for Ratings on URNA.
Ratings were introduced as an answer to a poll we did, back in the Summer of 2004, when they were the most requested feature that people wanted us to implement. Well, it's over 3 years since that poll and the Ratings have become a joke. ... [more]
