I am sorry you feel this way. Did you even stop to think to ask why BbBoards are doing this? Money has nothing to do with it..yet if you had asked...you would of known. :smile:

You really think that asking admins to pay $2.50 a month for a feature rich board is "money greedy"?

Hey Jenny2603, what exactly gives you the right to call these people names? Did they owe you something? What's that last thing YOU did for them?

Here's a suggestion: you buy a couple of big servers, big bandwidth, hire an administrator and offer thousands of people FREE BOARD HOSTING! Then come back & call these guys greedy.

Always think before posting. Otherwise someone might call YOU stupid.

Nothing online is free. Someone, somewhere pays for everything. Bandwidth costs keep increasing, servers have to be added, things replaced, etc and it all comes out of someone's pocket. It costs to keep a service like this running. I would imagine that most folks offer free boards in hopes that once you've tried the service and get a chance to see what they offer, you'll consider upgrading and that will offset the costs. Personally for the incredible amount of features on BbBoards, I've often wondered how they could get by only charging 2.50 per month for the paid boards.....let alone allow so many free boards to be created. (BTW, that's not a hint to hike the prices, BbBoy!) :biggrin:

I paid $6 per month at our last board host and it didn't have a tiny fraction of the services here and you could forget tech support - it was virtually non-existent. I'm sure there will be a lot of people not happy about being asked to pay 2.50 a month, but considering what you're getting for that, I don't really think there's much room for complaining. You probably can find some free board hosts still, but you have to take into account what kind of service you'll get and speaking from experience, I can say with confidence, it's not likely to be anything like what you get here. I'm pretty sure most of us blow more than 2.50 in a day on all kinds of misc. things - pop into Starbucks and you'll pay more than that for a cup of coffee, ya know? So 2.50 a month for an awesome board doesn't seem like money grubbing greediness to me and I'm on a tight budget myself.

Anyway, just my two cents. :bbrocks:

Another 2 worth.I was sorry to see the free boards being shut down too,because there are a lot of great ones out there.However $2.50 a month is not much to pay for all we get here.Hope the other free host you find,Jenny2603 will give you some kind of support and good luck finding one.Hopefully you won't start there calling people names.

Wait a minute! What is this? I'm confused. We can still have our free boards, can't we BbStaff? I mean, I wouldn't mind paying if I had to, you guys are great. But I'm a little confused as to what this is all about. :dazzler:

Well, I'm not going to lie and say that I'm happy about the change, because I'm not; but I do understand why you guys have to do what you have to do. And I am willing to pay to keep my board here. Just so you know! I was just confused as to what was going on, at first. :dazzler:

i am glad you understand... but what is going on? no more free boards? no matter to me, i have been paying for mine since day one, but won't that hurt this place overall? is there a thread that discusses this someplace besides this one where i can see (read) what is going on?

thanks...i just found it over in "announcements"...imagine that. lol. a thread where it is supposed to be. ha ha ha ha!!!!!

question for the big bosses though. with this move towards a downloadable product to be hosted on ones own servers...does this mean that the days of you hosting boards for those of us still currently here on the pay-plans are numbered as well?

I do wish that instead of deleting the boards, that they could remain, but be closed for future use, and no more added. But oh well. :sad:

Absolutely not! Paid boards are here to stay - we are just adding further options with the downloadable version. :smile:

Even "dead" boards occupy some server space and closed ones would also. If admins wish to keep their boards, there's plenty of time to upgrade and this move is an incentive for them to do so. Our prices are demonstrably cheaper than any other premium service and within the reach of everyone. I'm sure that members keen to keep their favorite boards alive, will be willing to contribute a few dollars towards their communities as well. :smile:

I understand what you are saying. But I found somewhere else to have the board for free - so I don't really want to pay to keep the archived forums up and running. It's not your problem, I just hate to see all that info and hard work go down the tubes.
