Yeah, same for me. I basically only logged in a handful of times this year because almost everytime I checked I was locked out.

I guess it has to do with people stealing stuff from CDG and keeping traffic costs down. I kinda get it, hosting this site must be a bit risky and expensive if you don't have a lot of backers. So from that angle, I understand why restrictions are there.

But this hurts the community; I'm still sad I could almost not participate. CDG is one of the few good places on the internet.

I hope the site admins can find a better solution

Yep. I've paid money a few times to this site, and right when my membership expires, I'm locked out of the whole damn site. That's a lousy sales tactic. It most definitely doesn't make me want to fork over anymore cash, that's for sure. If they can't fix that and respect their members better, I won't pay again.

pay or get locked out....its happens to us all
Yup i agree, but it has to be worth it, i mean this site has it glory few years ago when everyone can share regulerly without being locked out for the rest of the year... And non elite member share good quality post too...

I think it started a year ago till now, i dont mind to buy elite membership, but the lack of content in the elite grup doesnt make me want to buy it anymore...
You mentioned DR. That's whom I was referring to. I've never been locked out of there.

At the end of the day it seems to come down to how busy the server is and how many likes etc your post get. I've been struggling off and on when low reputation as well but it just takes perseverance to get back in and make more post to hopefully help build ones reputation score
