From yesterdays conversation with Maya Liebman, President of Aadvantage, she said:

"IF we did make any changes to Million Miler the miles you've earned so far will still count. "

Notice the CAPITAL "IF".

Longtime FT'er, was banned from FT and started his own site.
It's interesting that you say that JonNYC was banned from FT and started his own site (namely Milepoint.com, correct me if I'm wrong), since Randy Petersen seems to be the founder of FT (see here: http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/members/randy-petersen.html ) as well as the moderator in the recent chat with Maya Leibman for Milepoint... Am I missing something here?
Also another curious thing is that this moderator Randy Petersen called the site milepost several times as opposed to its real name milepoint...

Milepoint is Randy's new site.
FT is what Randy founded but sold and subsequently got in a lawsuit with.
Travelingbetter is Jon's site.
You now stand corrected.

i am not happy to read that things are changing!!
i just got hooked on dans deals and i was starting to get to work on a million miles.
after signing up for the cc for 100,000 points (and receiving it) i now have 380,000 lifetime points.
i fly about 2-3 times a year. how can i rack up miles to at least get close to a million miles???
i signed up for all the bonuses over the past few weeks so maybe ill have another 2 thousand total.
if i open a bank direct i can get some miles but i dont really have money to leave hanging in there

also does a business advantage account help get personal miles or only for the business?

Business credit card, the miles go into your personal account.
Also re-apply to all three cards again if it's been 60 days since the last application.
Good luck.

Via TB:
Quote from: JonNYC
Currently, AAdvantage members are recognized and rewarded each time they earn a million total program-to-date miles. This Million Miler program is not a published benefit, and members only hear of it by word of mouth or when they first cross the million mile threshold.

Changes are expected around Summer 2011 to limit MM accrual -- not everything will count as it does today. At that time the program will be publicized and members can keep up with their MM totals online at AA.com. Until the public is notified of upcoming changes, please do not initiate discussion about the program with members.

...

Million Miler status updates are made nightly.Member Mileage Information reflects:

Million Miler Level
Date Achieved
Miles needed for Next Level
Total Million Miler Miles
Miles Earned Prior to August 1, 2011
Miles Earned Since August 1, 2011
Until the new MM program is launched, the same value should be displayed in Program To Date Miles, Total Million Miler Miles and Miles Earned Prior to August 1, 2011. There will be occasional discrepancies, however. The PTD Total is always the most accurate.

Note: The August 1, 2011 date is a place-holder only.
Do -not- quote this date to members as it is probably -not- the cutover date for the new program. Once the actual date is set; members will be given approximately 2 months' notice. Until the notification period begins, avoid discussion about the current or future MM program.

just curious what the pros thought on this.

do you think its wise to transfer 250k spg points into aa for lifetime gold. the truth is i dont fly alot now maybe once or twice a yr but then again im 25 and many more years ahead of me iy''h and to lock in lifetime gold sounds tempting.

what do you think?

What does lifetime gold get you? Does it apply to AA metal only? Can it be status matched?

Why?  If they give us 2 months notice tomorrow it can be sooner.

At least we'll have two months notice... Anything besides for SPG transfer to AA at a reasonable (or semi-reasonable) rate?
