Registered users sometimes get error messages when the server is overloaded and can't log in.

This is different from getting banned for breaking TOS.

To avoid such blocks registered users can upgrade their accounts to premium membership.

More information on how you can upgrade here (http://cutedeadguys.net/threads/18971-Become-a-Premium-Member-on-CDG).

Do you have to have a premium membership in order to use the board?

Regular membership is free although there are limitations and you may get blocked again. Elite members enjoy lots of perks to their accounts, including unlimited pic storage and unlimited messages.

Elite users also get more editing options and can become admins of their group.

Well that makes sense then. Just experienced this. Please feel free to ignore the message I sent asking about it :P

What are you gonna do when you get permanently blocked?

I dunno. If i can afford a premium membership, perhaps I will pay it. If not, well that's life. Unfortunately, porn isn't really in my budget these days. Don't think it's in a lot of peoples. I've watched this place evolve over the years and it would be sad to see you go completely paid membership. I think you'd lose a lot of the diversity that makes this place so great.

We are doing our best to remain open and free. However on some days traffic to the site is immense and there is a new post generated every second which is really hard on the server.

The server then automatically starts blocking people otherwise the whole site can go down.
