This message went out to La Noir Image subscribers today.
La Noir Image has been around for a number of years and survived as a community with no advertising and based solely off of membership payments. Very soon, the website will cease to exist. The reasons why are due to its maintenance being a major time and resource drainer.
The paywall will be lifted and all the content on the site will be available for free. It has all been imported into the Phoblographer’s website and so we will link to it and cite it every so often. You’ll still be able to catch all the essays, artist spotlights, gear posts and more there completely free. Your email address will also be rolled into the Phoblographer’s email subscription list; and opting out of that is very simple to do once our emails get to you.
Your other information will not be held by The Phoblographer LLC at all. I encourage everyone to refund their subscriptions via PayPal. Otherwise, your money will help us with our next endeavor; which is already underway in its creation. We’ll be splitting our funding for videos and zine production.
I’d like to take the time to thank you folks for your time and resources in making this a wonderful website and for also teaching me to think different when it comes to content production. At the moment, La Noir Image will exist without the paywall. But it will soon be fully, and completely gone.
Again, thank you for allowing me to bring this special publication into your hearts.
