Forum Updates Over the Next Few Days
"@ Helwig, Some day in the mountains this will be so laughable."Huh? I am usually huffing and puffing at altitude....rarely laugh...
If a pre-lockdown annual member lets their membership lapse is the logic there to downgrade them to a grandfathered forum member or are they spit out into the $5 a year group?Would be interesting to compare new signups (and perhaps post count) ongoing to historical data to ensure the new policies are not shrinking the community.If the goal was to stop spam why not a $5 one time forum registration fee? It seems punitive to the users to have a yearly fee when the intent was to stop spammers from registering.Its unfortunate that non-monetary solutions were not used to resolve the issue. They are quite simple and effective.
I have no problem with the minor changes. This is the premier forum on backpacking, light or otherwise. The changes aren't onerous. But I'm sure for those that can't live with it, they'll be glad to start their own forum.Safe and joyous hikingJD
