    I’m just so ashamed that I bought into this back in ’14. For our little studio, 99 USD was a lot of money back then. To be honest the outright cringe-worthy results we got when the Grid.io finally emerged were so poor we went back to WordPress. If it ain’t broke, etc. etc.Oh yeah, and the keychain never, like ever, came.What a horrendous ripoff from V1 to V3.

    I was one of the first 50,000 founding members who paid $99 to get a website from the Grid. Of course, it never ended up happening and when I wanted to contact someone to ask what was going on, there was no phone number or email in sight. So I eventually gave up, and even forgot about it. I am still without a website from them, and wouldn’t even know how to get my money back.

    I loved using the Grid, I got in early as well. Now there is no contact! My pictures aren’t even on my site and I can’t get in contact with anyone. Suggestions?! Please contact me at Monsters.made.w.love@icloud.com. Thank you!

    I got in early on this AI phenom with The GRID and was able to make it work for me, being techno literate enough to manage it. The best part was the cost factor upon being a founding and then life time member. I built four sites and called it good. After extensive searching I found this review and noted recent posts. Thanks folks for posting your comments. As noted by other recent posts The GRID seems to have gone dark in just the past two weeks. Specifically pic files are not loading, otherwise the rest seems to still be working. Of course there is no getting into the AI engine to manage anything. This suggests a major server failure on their end. UGH. And there is no response from their “support” team. However, the worst thing is their non-communication. That is about as non-professional as it gets. They seem to be pretending that they can just beam themselves to some black hole and never be discovered. The stuff of lawsuits. Oh, well. If anyone has any information I would appreciate a share. Feel free to contact me at robert@robertmyerslcpc.com. Cheers

    The system worked fine for me until recently, not it’s stopped updating and as of today I cannot even access the WebApp to make changes. So long and thanks, but it looks like the party’s over, and the host left a while ago, and isn’t communicating with customers who are left to clean up the mess.

    Good enough until recently and then …my website images disappeared! It looks like I’ve been abandoned along with my site. I no longer have access. I am so disappointed and furious – no response to repeated requests for help! Version 3 never materialised and I’ve been a patient founder and lifetime member. Empty words…
