Re: Premium users and its (dis)advantages

Now....there should be some organization from you guys (premium) and free members too....what's the point to have a premium membership if it adds nothing to a regular one...it's got to be different. MTF has at this moment ...how many...let's say 75% of its posters as potential premium members that giving the circumstances won't even think about becoming one....
I agree now that a change must be done for the good of us all....and making the registration a must (to read all forums) is a good change towards that....or changing the servers which I assume is the least likely thing to happen.

Edit: added

Have you informed Steve about it then?

Re: Premium users and its (dis)advantages

So why is MTF implying that people can "Remove advertisements" by registering (as per the ads)? Many of us are already registered as premium and the advertisements have not been removed.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Re: Premium users and its (dis)advantages

No surprise the mods/administrators ignore us.

I don't really care about the ads. I don't actually remember any promise to end them for premium users, but I want the option to change my username back!!!!

And the way I remember it is the same as Neely remembers it, because it actually came up with the enactment of the new premium membership. I'm fairly confident that, in its current form, the premium option was never promised to be ad-free. Redesign Bugs
Deb is correct on this, I am quite sure. The current Premium membership never offered ad-free. It offered less advertisement.

The problem here is more and more advertisements are added and premium members are not excluded from the new ads.

My understanding is Steve (the person or the account) is no longer the webmaster of this forum. So PM him or the account would be useless.

Indeed, but unfortunately they don't have the power necessary. We need the big boss (whoever the hell it is nowadays )

And here I think the line between 'on the border of being legally okay' and 'misleading' is crossed. I don't know what's the proper term in English, but we Dutchies call this 'wanprestatie'.

Am I still here? As one, with The Fear?
Am I still alive? I'm still f*cking ... Here...!"

I have sent in a request to fix this. We need the webmaster to do this or to find someone who can do this.
