A story in past simple:
They offered a great new service to build widgets in flash.
They became very popular.
They suddenly decided they wanted everyone to pay large fees to use their formerly free service.
They lost their user (some would say FAN) base.
This week I received a message from them. They offered me the three free sprouts I had made without charges.
So the free sprouts are back, it seems, for whoever wishes to sign up.
Better not have anything important on them, though, because they seem to change their mind very quickly and that does not fill one with confidence on using their very excellent service. www.wix.com offers a similar service, and don't seem as arbitrary.
In the meantime take a look at both sites to make mini web pages with no programming.
