I'll share a blog post about this soon, but I've decided to ⚠️ close new Free account registrations ⚠️ for Write.as on December 31st.

This won't affect our anonymous apps or existing users; only those who want to create a Free account starting January 1.

There are several reasons for this change, but a big one is needing the space to focus on our customers and build out everything we hope to.

I laid everything out on our forum for community feedback: discuss.write.as/t/potential-c

Follow

Of course, I don't want to exclude people from ad-free, privacy-centric software like ours — there shouldn't be a premium on it.

So the plan is to continue supporting cost-free publishing via:

- Self-hosting and communities running @writefreely, and
- Invite links, which you can use to give out Free accounts

Besides that, naturally, if you create an account before January 1 you won't have to worry about this — and you can help other people join by inviting them personally.
