The forum was never down, you were out and you will be again if you don't donate & support the community.
I had just joined the forum and had my profile approved. I began posting and sharing. And then I got a message one day saying I had to subscribe to continue being a member.
Just like that. I wasn't lurking, I was increasing my presence. Talking to other guys. Getting to know my way around. And then I got hit with that page and could not access anything.
Initially, I was annoyed, because I like CDG, and I saw no notice about free membership being temporary, and as much as I do enjoy this place I don't have the money to pay for premium membership. I thought my brief time here was over, so I didn't post for a month. I wouldn't have thought I could come back without subscribing if not for getting a private message yesterday.
After another couple of weeks with access barred I seem to have been granted renewed access coupled with an inviation to take out elite membership at a concessionary rate valid to late April.
I wonder whether a failure to take out this offer will lead to a further blocking. I have no problem in Cutedeadguys becoming a pay site if that is the wish of the membership but i would like clarification as to whether joining as an Elite member is now going to be compulsary - in which case the affirmation that Cute Dead Guys will always be free is a hollow promise.
Having said which congratulationss to Meatpie on providing a great site. Any thought on whether you will come to U.K. when the current restrictions on Bulgarians end this year. After all we can now offer the chance of Press censorship which may eventually equal anything you experienced in Communist days
CDG is free for those who post and contribute new content to the community.
A blatant lie.
I have paid for elite membership repeatedly in the past and will do so again, but only voluntarily.
Attempts to coerce me by shutting me out will have the opposite effect.
I will not consider paying again unless no further blocks have occurred in the next 3 months.
