Say what now???

Just when I feel good about the work I need to accomplish for my health and wellbeing, and feel that I have an excellent tool, which helped me in the past, I learn that SparkPeople is closing the site in August.
Here's the link: https://www.sparkpeople.com/re
I should have known. I tried to sign up for Premium, but I got a message that they weren't accepting new memberships.
I'm working my way through the new site, SparkAmerica, but it just doesn't have the same feel, or sensitivity to my dietary needs. SparkAmerica is designed for companies who are providing the site to employees as part of their health care plan. You can join, but if your company doesn't participate, you need to sign up for a city "Team". The nearest city to me, on their list, is Philadelphia, which is in another state.
SparkPeople is the only tracking site that I've seen which takes diabetes into account when setting up daily nutrition goals.
And SparkPeople is international -- I've met & chatted with people from England, Canada, Australia, and France.
I would have happily paid for Premium, and I'm disappointed that we aren't being given the opportunity.
