Did the "pay for the forum or get banned until you pay" remove some of your friends?

I just noticed that you can't post anymore if you do not have a paid subscription even if you have several 1000 posts. Do you know old time members you miss because they didn't want to pay and by this got auto-banned?

that's odd because I've never paid either. Maybe it doesn't allow you to post from an account that was paid at some point.

^ that. I can still post although I never got a subscription (planning on getting one ASAP tho, don't hit me !)

I've had my subscription run out, and it just bumped me to "Members". I could post just fine.

 

that could be it then, he couldn't continue to post from a paid a account that got 0 credit, so to say, and the system didn't switch him to "members" status.

yeah maybe it was some kind of glitch in the matrix so to say. I wonder if Joyrex can confirm this? Even so I am totally ok with paying I was a bit confused about being forced to it suddenly.

I asked Papa about it since my friend Phoenix was having issues, and I had no idea about the new rules. All accounts are paid and apparently you end up in Limbo/"validating status" if you don't use your account for 180 days, and have to pay your way back into the party. No idea if I'll see my friend again. :cry: I will pay to keep using this forum as it's a platform to sell my music (and some of you are alright to hang out with I guess) but I understand people who don't, nothing against the forum personally but a lot of us have probably been part of several forums over the years without paying for them.

ah ok that explains why there is a paid member status now in addition to the normal ones. But as I wasn't inactive auto-ban until you pay is a new default rule? I don't mind paying I just would like to know whats going on and if its possible to see who is affected by this. I wasn't even able to send pms anymore

I went to check this, by creating a new account, and this does seem to be the case. Very unfortunate that this is now a pay-to-join site, if I ever get bumped to a restricted account because I haven't paid I'd probably leave the site permanently (not that I would want to at all). Honestly a sad moment.

I can confirm this is the case. I had a previously registered account that had been deactivated because I wasn't active for 180 days or something.

 

Fair enough, I was using up some vital resource by not being here and got deleted.

 

So I was just browsing the forum now and again but felt I wanted to sign up and take part in the discussions, but lo and behold I had to pick a subscription fee (3 options from $3 up) before my membership could be validated and I could join.

 

I was initially quite shocked that I would have to pay 'subscription fee' that only allows me limited priviliges, but being that as it may, here I am, $3 / £1.89 out of pocket, safe in the knowledge if I piss off for half a year I can still come back.

Yeah I had to pay to read up on the Venetian Snares bonus disc pavlova a couple of months back. Seeing as the forum is OK, I don't mind so much.

 

Plus, $3 is almost worthless against the pound so, you know... :emotawesomepm9:
