I'm confused.. how is the site free now.. when it was free before.
But now you have to pay 7$ to get access to everything?
maybe its a typo? should say "Almost Free" or "Virtually Free" for example.
$7 is petty monies, but its the principal, don't tell people (quote from the email notification) "It is now FREE for all members." if its not. That's misleading.
Seems only the classifieds and off topic areas are for paying members.
So we have to pay the site so we can pay another member for parts.
I don't understand the reasoning for the site selling out, and I don't have to like it.
but I'm not paying the $7 today either. Maybe later if I really need something I can't find anywhere else.
Just a though though, why don't you set permissions on the paid boards so people can at least see what's in there just not post. Then they can decide if its worth the $7 to them. Plus if its recurring, the site would most likely get at least a second year of money out of a lot of people who would forget about the charge or not notice $7 missing from their bank account.
Just a thought
