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.
i completely agree! :smile: $2.50 a month is not much to pay for BbBoards excellent service! :smile: plus you get a few extra features free boards dont have by upgrading, like image hosting and a chatroom :smile::bbrocks::yourock::lovebb:

This was not something we decided to do lightly. We've put a lot of effort into making the free boards work and pay for themselves, but with abuses affecting the revenues that covered the free boards, it is not possible to continue offering them when admins have gone as far as linking their members to pop up killers. This was brought on by the lack of support shown by some of the free boards and once they've been removed from the network, things will be much better for everyone. It isn't fair that those of you who've paid for service are getting 500 errors because some of the free boards are really overusing available resources on top of advocating the use pop up killers.

I want to thank everyone for your support and I want to encourage you to stand by for the great things to come. We aren't going anywhere and we will still offer the best support on the net for this network. There isn't a host out there that has many of the features we offer and you will never have to pay to post, but making donations to support your favorite boards is something that will benefit everyone. For those of you who will be moving, it is a shame that some people had to exploit what we offered, that in our opinions already had very reasonable advertising. For the rest of you who've already been paying for expanded service things are only going to get better so hang in there! :biggrin:

Just wanted to quickly say that I definitely agree that what you offer for 2.50 is a wonderful deal, and one that I would recommend :smile: My moving *one* of my boards had NOTHING to do with that, or the recent announcement. I still have one board here - a paid one, and I still enjoy the support, and many members - Pamster being one of them.
Having said that, I believe I made it clear that I understand the reasonings, I just feel bad to see all that hard work deleted :smile: I think anyone can understand that if I'm being offered the same service for free, why I would take it. It's nothing personal AT ALL. I've LOVED my time here, and will continue to, as I still have one paid board :smile:

Oh no, we won't be charging more-we have set our 'Fixed Price' and the onlyone that is Variable, is the Variable plan. :biggrin:

It's too bad they can't have a free limited time trial period.. I just got my board yesturday and I'm not sure if I will get enough visitors to make it worth the upgrade. other wize I have no problem with having to pay for bandwidth..

All the best to everyone on the board in these troubled times of War!!!

That is what we are leaning towards actually Mas. :wink: Thinking a 30 day trial period, but don't hold me to that-we are still debating what is the best route to take but a trial period is definitely on the table. :smile:

Boy you sure don't read well do you? ROFL-we said only boards on BbServer were being deleted but since you have such a rude attitude I am more then happy to show you the door. We do not appreciate being told WHAT to do and you definitely are not going to get your boards deleted before we are darn good and ready and are on that point in the schedule. I think this is time to lock this thread since some people have proven they are not reading the one thread that matters and just coming here to mouth off. :tongue:

  

This thread is locked: Please read the thread in the announcements forum thouroughly before posting any more negative topics-it is not only rude, but as unwelcome as those people who've used pop up killers forcing us to take this action.
