I bet if we took a poll, no one paid for the bigger av or custom headline or more PM space. And either way, one would hope they care enough about those who have actually bothered to pay. I mean, they very clearly stated it would not be an ad-free experience. That's fine and I think pretty much everyone was OK with that, but no one had any idea that this is what would happen.

And I can only speak for myself (but I have a feeling i'm not alone in this is), but something that annoys me about it is the lack of communication. We weren't even told the name change option would be gone, we weren't told that we'd never get the player forums we voted for 6 months ago, we weren't really told about the changes in ads, or even changes in administration so we'd know who to contact directly with specific concerns. I'm hoping that now that the holidays are over, these concerns will at least be addressed, since there was little to no communication all along.
The first step would be to try to communicate with Steve about our complaints so he can pass them to Verticalscope. To do that we have to organize our complaints and give a good and complete report about them with clear goals.

If we get a negative or no reply there we have to show them that we are not guinea pigs and this changes will reduce the number of posts and hence the value of the forum. To do that we have to organize together though but let's hope that it doesn't come to that.

Have you informed Steve about it then?
