So you’re offering me the opportunity to pay you 50% more to get back a feature I just lost?

Yes, that’s what Bloomfire wants me to do. Apparently I’ve got two weeks make up my mind. If I don’t it looks like my rate may triple. Yup. Triple. I do not feel like a customer right now even though the company I work for pays them several thousand dollars each year.

Let me back up…

Bloomfire is a knowledge sharing platform but how I use it has been a bit unusual – I’m not the typical use case. To support the activities that happen between live vILT sessions, I set up a new Bloomfire sub-community for each session. In that sub-community, students have discussions, share work, comment, ask questions, submit assignments, and download course materials. As a result, I can end up with 100 sub-communities per year but only six or so active at any one time. Each only stays open a few weeks after a course ends then it’s deactivated. So I’ve got a bunch of deactivated communities.
