So basically what you are saying is that we no longer get "credits" just by logging onto the site?There's always been a difference between saved credits and credits. Credits were earned while on a subscription, or through forum posts, or by the site giving you the credits for logging in. The only credits that I kept, were the saved credits--because those were earned through contributing covers to the site.
The site's ad revenue hasn't been enough to sustain the cost of the bandwidth, so things are changing a bit.
> saved credits, will always be there, no subscription required in order to use them--no special member group, they'll never be removed.
> saved credits are still earned by contributing covers to the site -- when they're downloaded you receive credits for each unique download
> a membership purchased with bitcoin will be available soon, that will not require credits to download. If you purchase a subscription, you'll be placed in a group that has download rights. This is a lot like it was before.
There are still some hiccups here and there with the site code, please do continue to report them. If you are 'missing credits' - the only way you'll have them is if you're in a group other than member/registered, or you contribute to the site and have earned them (saved credits).
You haven't addressed this issue since I exposed it and I'd really appreciate that you do (because in the explanation you gave above about the different type of credits "earned" here, I didn't see any example about "mine" -though I believe there sure must be other members in the same position-). I repeat, this was a deal that YOU offered before deciding to become a "free" site and I never questioned it. Just accepted it and paid for it, so I think you should respect it.[B said:wolfe999[/B]]Regarding the credits, I'm not talking about the free ones, but about a promotion you had before becoming "free", for which I payed and were over 500.
