Premium users and its (dis)advantages

Please admins,
I come here in ordr to represent all the premium users of MTF. I have paid 25 dollars for something. I'd like a ad-free environment and the option to change my nick. In my personal case, actually the first one. I'm using my father's notebook while in vacation and I can't use any navigator but IE so I can't use any add-on in order to make ads disappear.
Please consider what I'm saying and take ads out for premium users. I believe most (if not all) of them have paid 10/25 dollars not for a picture showing they're premium users.

Re: Premium users and its (dis)advantages

Totally agreed, Felipe.

I paid $25 for this and it was a waste of money, really. If you want to get more premium members you better give us more advantages than disadvantages. And one of the first things to do is get rid of all these ads that now are posts and can't be blocked with Firefox and other browsers.

What a joke.

I'm glad I never got a premium membership.

I assume you won't pay again the time your membership expires.

Re: Premium users and its (dis)advantages

Completely agree. And doing all of this without making announcements about it makes it all the more annoying.

Re: Premium users and its (dis)advantages

I hope it's only temporary that premium members can't change their username anymore Unbelievable that this is gone now

And an ad-free experience for premium members would be of the highest priority for me. I hope they can realize that soon because people who already financially supported the forum shouldn't view these ads (or only very very few ones) at all. As for the free users and guests, they would have to endure the ads. This would be the fairest solution IMO.

And the worst is that we don't get nothing back from Steve about this two situations.

Re: Premium users and its (dis)advantages

Completely agree with what has been said. I didn't pay the membership to have more ads than ever!

Sometimes our light goes out but is blown into flame by another human being.
Each of us owes deepest thanks to those who have rekindled this light

Re: Premium users and its (dis)advantages

I guess I'll consider my premium membership a small donation to MTF for the four years I have enjoyed this place ad- and trouble-free before it became ruined with their "upgrades" that now gives us annoying ads, kontera/intellitext, "premium" membership that isn't so premium, endless error messages, inaccessable photo galleries, duplicate or missing posts, slow-as-molasses server, and general everyday frustration when trying to have a simple conversation which is next to impossible now, as Interlaken put so aptly a while ago:


"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."
