As far as I was ever aware, the new premium (the old premium never had a lifetime membership, it was per month or per year, I remember because I did pay for the one year, which was 19.99. No lifetime option) membership, which went into effect when verticalscope took over management of the board, NEVER offered an ad-free experience. 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
Hmmm maybe I'm mistaken then... I could have sworn it did.
Either way, the lack of communication about the removal of other features and the general downhill slope these boards are on is still a cause of concern.
