Is Facts a free forum now?
 
Apologies if this has been covered within the multitude of threads regarding the new setup but I was surprised, as a non-subscriber, to be able to post :nerd:

you were always able to post as a non-subscriber on the old site but were limited to 5 posts before you had to subscribe.

some others have raised a similar point but I don't know what the answer is.

It's connected with trying to move the subs payment from ODB to VS I think. I read a post to that effect a few days ago but I'm stuffed if I can find it now.
Presumably, once they sort it all out it'll revert to the usual arrangement of non-subscribers only having 5 posts (or whatever they feel is appropriate).

Personally I'd favour returning to a free forum. Surely VS can raise enough income from advertising anyway? No doubt if they did that however we'd have all the subscribers demanding their money back from ODB?

Can't win really can they?

Not really members could have unlimited posts but only subscribers have access to the subscriber's areas - lounge, databases etc.

Nothing wrong with that - it is how the Bongo Fury forum works - members just get access - subscribers get access + extra benefits.

Some ex subscribers are taking advantage of this. I know of one for certain who has had many bad things to say about Facts, plus he is far too greedy to subscribe here, has been posting merrily away. I am surprised he paid out £10 to the other MHF. :frown2:
