Edited post by babycakes123

This is just a new thread to go along with the other thread that has already been started....To all the Gold members....Please find it in your hearts to sponsor blue members for even a month....

Just take a listen to some of the members and you can decide for yourself if you think they should be Gold..

I understand why there is a "Gold" status, to maintain the overhead of the site, but I just wish that there was some sort of leverage for the ones that REALLY want to be Gold members and can't afford it... I know for myself, as I stated right under Skypresmommy at the beginning of this thread....some people just plain can't afford it due to their financial situations....

It would just be nice, that's all...
If you would like to see the other post on what non-Gold members are saying, here it is:

Skypres, Babycakes, you're both such wonderful inspirational young ladies....I wish I could sponsor much more.

What a wonderful thing to do to help others around, all it takes are little actions and carried through to make a difference in such a chaotic world, it is truly a great joy to see others helping without expectations....:-)

Hugs to you both xxx

instead of asking people to sponcer ss to give
us the option to donate example i pay 7 bucks
a month if ss ask if i wanted to donate a dollar a month its only a doller i would! get 50 plus
people doing this there you go its a start
now i know how would people get selected
i would suggest random monthly
or do a contest for non gold members for a free month or two anyway i think donate will
do better for non gold members than sponcer

Darlen, thank you to you as well.... You are just as wonderful for taking the time, not only to do what you've done, but by taking the time to read and react on how Skypres and I have expressed ourselves.... I've learned in life that its not about me. My parents raised me to help others.. If my smile or even a "hello" can make someone's day, well I'll do it.... xoxoxo

As I have a soft voice and some songs are too low or too high for me..I am on a fix income, I am also raising one of my grandkids. So hard for me.. But since then, I have giving up somethings , coffee being the most,( I love my coffee) so I cut back on it...but I make sure my grandson has his things... Right now, I pay $7..00 a month for the gold..If I win at the lottory I would love to give someone the gold...

So, if I'm understanding you right, this is a list of people who need to be sponsored?
Did you ask these people if they wanted you to "panhandle" membership sponsorships for them?? Because I'll tell you this much, if I weren't already gold, and found myself on that list without having been asked, I'd be mighty pissed.

There are people who don't WANT to be gold, and/or don't want to be sponsored. I know of a few people who quit SS altogether based on the principle of having that sponsor me button placed next to their name. People need to be allowed their pride, without having a begging cup placed next to them, and other people feeling sorry for them just because they don't have "the gold".

I honestly think that there needs to be a system whereby anyone who would like to be sponsored can put their name on a list of some kind ....something only staff has access to, to be chosen randomly, like a drawing....and the funds can come from something like what djjaymusik said above. I'd pay a little extra if the revenue were to go toward helping people who have ASKED to be helped.

Yes Beth, the people on the list are aware of being on it and why.....babycakes and several others have been keeping a list so others who are able to sponsor are aware of the names.

I've sponsored several and I am glad to have helped others that needed it, it is really a great place to share, whatever we are able to. I think it is very nice that you'd help out as well.

I think there are some good ideas floating about on how to pay for sponsor's as well, which I never thought of as contests. Have a great weekend everyone~

Well, good, then. And fair enough.
I just feel very strongly about how this whole thing has come about. I don't and never have agreed with the sponsor me button being placed next to everyone's name regardless of whether they want to be sponsored or not.

It's nice to know that someone is thoughtful enough to have taken into consideration, while trying to be helpful, the fact that people should be asked before they are sponsored. I'll keep this list in mind in case I ever run across someone who would like the sponsorship.

Begging is a harsh word. I imagine that post caused a few tears among the people brave enough to post and ask to be sponsored. I mean, ouch.

Everyone is entitled to an opinion, but wow. Some things are better left unsaid. If you don't want to sponsor anyone, don't. No one is forcing anyone to. But don't tell people to 'get a life' and 'sacrifice' because each situation is different than your own and you don't know what kind of bills or income a person may have.. should someone sacrifice their heating bill or their children's groceries so they can be righteous like you?

Wow. I wish I'd never looked in here.

btw.. please don't put my name on that list.. I do realize I'm blue, but I'm not asking for a sponsor. Just commenting on what I thought were unnecessary, harsh words.

I'm perplexed by your approach, which is very crass, and offensive. If I were a blue member who wanted to be sponsored really badly, I wouldn't respond to your offer, either.

I don't think that becoming a gold member is so all important in life to merit one person placing labels on others such as you have done by insinuating that anyone is "begging. That is exactly what most people I've spoken with on SS about this topic are hoping/trying to avoid; being seen as a beggar. If you want to offer a way for people to win a membership, why can't you just do it without slamming people just because no one has responded yet? I don't get that. There are people who may be able to enjoy the benefits of SS as a blue member, but simply can NOT afford an extra dime, let alone $7 a month to go gold. With so many people living in this world, and a different lifestyle, different life circumstances to go along with each person, how can YOU, one person out of the masses, sit there and judge everyone so as to say they should "just" do it?

Note to self; avoid the challenge for allstars 215

PS:
1. Your obvious use of the term I used (panhandling) is just that; obvious

2. It's not "sponcer", it's "sponsor"

But how would you feel, if someone posted up a message that said you were foolish to pay for a luxury such as membership, with such a small income and 4 small children to feed? You wouldn't be very happy and would feel personally attacked. That's my point. Judge not, lest ye be judged. Leave the people asking be.. it's just mean to call someone out for asking when singsnap invited these situations by offering the sponsor button. Somebody, somewhere was bound to ask. If you don't want to sponsor, or can't, it's simple enough to just pass by these threads without offering a discouraging opinion. That's all I was trying to say.

As I said in the original sponsor post .... We all have wishes and wants. Sponsoring gives one a chance to do something nice for someone. I think it's ok to ask to be sponsored .... this way you know the person really wants it and won't be offended.

It takes courage to ask to be sponsored and people shouldn't be made to feel as if they've done something wrong. Some budgets are already cut to the bare essentials. I won't judge anyone who asks.

You don't have to be gold to sponsor someone .... there are blue members who have sponsored others.

Im not fussed about beying a gold member! Sure their are some songs you cant sing but even when you are a gold member they'll be some songs you cant get for a while, you cant make a playlist but you don't need to you just add your favourate singers to your favourates and click on them. It doesnt really restrict you as far as i've found, you can still make friends with people and listen to everyone!

I already sponsor someone and would love to sponsor more but after the dirty trick that was used on us that we'll get gold members to sign up but they will be losing allot of songs and artist to the "licensing fee" i will not sponsor another person. I would also not recommend it to someone else either because the extras are really not that thrilling...shy

Hi everyone........ i really enjoy this site and all of the sweet people in here. I cannot afford to buy the gold membership right now....... but would very much like to try it for just one month - to access some of the other songs.

I must say that this place really gives me peace in the caos that is in my life right now - i so much enjoy listen to all of your great recordings - and to sing - it is really some good terapi.

God...The Drama..........Well......Its true to say that $7 is not a lot of money...£3.42p in the uk......But to some people it could actually mean the difference between a day without food in their mouth...or being able to eat....In my line of work i see it every day in life...and its not nice......It's okay for us to prattle on and say...oh go without a macdonalds for a day etc etc.....but...there genuinly are people who live hand to mouth...and singsnap may well be one of their few luxuries..and a bonus..its free......

All im saying is this.............

If it costs me £3.42p to put a smile on someones face...then its money well spent.........

Now all you Goldies out there..........If you can afford to do it........DONT DELAY...SPONSOR TODAY........That is what this site is all about........

Reply by MandyPATRON

Absolutely Jess. I've sponsored a few here and there as well, and I know of others that do it as well. It's not done for thanks or to ingratiate ourselves with anyone, it's just a simple 'share the love' when we can.

Some people have a hard enough time making themselves gold, so there's no shame if you can't sponsor another person, but if you can, then do so, be it a friend or a fave or just someone you feel is deserving.

Make someone's day!

Before i ask anything, I simply would like to say that I am not begging, but would graciously appreciate if anyone found me worthy of a sponsorship.

I am a Diabetic, that has had 2 heart attacks, and currently Unemployed. I don't have the heart to ask the wife if we can afford an extra expense, but I have been involoved with SingSnap now for a couple of years, ran a very successful contest back around Thanksgiving that I gave alot of my time freely to this site.

So if anyone finds it in their heart to sponsor me, I will return the gesture when I can afford to do so. I have been a singer for many years, but have to avoid alot of songs since I do not have the Pitch Shifting that Gold members enjoy.

Thanks for understanding, and once again...I'm not begging for a sponsor...just asking.

God Bless
Papa

SEEMS THAT NO-ONE IS INTERESTED, DUE TO I HAVE NOT EVEN BEEN CONTACTED, LET ME PUT IT THIS WAY, I PLACED A OPTION OR 2 WITH NO RESPONSE.

ALSO, I LOOK AT IT THIS WAY,

EVERYONE SAY'S TO LISTEN AND SEE IF THEIR WORTH SPONCERING, ARE WE SPONCERING FOR THE NEXT MUSIC AWARDS, (NO),
COME ON PEOPLE I DO SEE THAT THIS IS A FORM OF PANHANDLEING, GET A LIFE, IF YOU CAN'T AFFORD IT JUST SET YOUR MIND AND QUIT BEGGING, I MADE SACRIFICES TO BE GOLD SO WHY CAN'T YOU, I SEE THAT SINCE NO-ONE CONTACTED ME ON MY OFFER THAT THEY JUST WANT ME TO GO AUTO AND SPONCER.

GOLD IS A FORM OF LUXURY, IF YOUR IN DESPERATE NEED OF A VEHICLE YOU DON'T GO TO A BRAND NEW LOT ASKING TO BE GIVEN A NEW CAR FOR FREEkaraokeTonya

Now wait just a minute here i'm NOT a begger...My name is on that list because I was sponsored for one month,and now i'm blue again...I don't care one way or another if i'm blue/gold...I'm here to sing and have fun that's all...I did NOT ask the first time when I was sponsored,and not gonna ask this time...Like I have said before if someone wants to sponsor me that's their choice...I will NOT ask anybody...Not to try and make anybody mad,but I did not know at first about my name being on the list...Like I said before it a list of people who was sponsored,and are blue again...You are a little harsh with your words...Who are you to say we need to get a life and stop panhandleing?
