1. Yes

2. First of all you should be a donor, and the rules applied on you with the donation system we have. Then yes you will still have access.

It's going to be one rule, and it is going to be about the amount which we haven't decided it yet.  March 1st.

Your post reminded me to donate again, but it may have gone through as an anonymous one. Didn't see a prompt for username anywhere, the Anonymous slider looked off so I thought "not Anonymous".

 

$USD25 via PayPal, PayPal txn ID starts with 1WC9 and ends with 833P.

@Karlston Thank you for your donations. If you read my post you would see that ViP and Veteran they should contact an admin if they want to be under Donor group.

Too early here in OZ, and obviously not enough coffee in me to function properly yet. :)   :sorry:

Just my 2 cents worth, I think it is a bad idea to segregate any community based on post count and or now money given. 

That said I could care less about my status here, as long as I am in good standing.

IMHO anyone in good standing should have access to anything that any other member has, regardless of post count or their bank book.

Thanks for understanding that this is not a flame just an opinion. Regards

I can't agree more, but this is how forums system are made. Post count  shows how expert or helpful to others. 

 

The Donors have been giving all of us a very grateful chance to have the servers running, otherwise me nor anyone in here would have access to the forums anymore. It's always good to say thank you to someone gives you hand to do something, and it would be nicer if you give him an gift back to appreciate his help.

lol, what's wrong???   You can "thank" people without making a site into "haves" and "have nots".  In fact, for many people a simple thank you would do just fine.  When 'giving' turns into a quid pro quo it's no longer simply about 'giving'.  A better term for it might be 'purchasing'.

 

Saw something quite similar here awhile back with access to Microsoft files where some could go to a particular thread, others could not. Didn't think much of that either. This new business carries the same sort of approach a good deal further. Just my 2 pennies, but I think it's a mistake that does more harm than good. Flame if you will, but sites are better when members all stand on the same ground.

Not on its own IMHO. Remember the (lively) discussion about post spamming to Veteran?

I am sorry sir I do not remember that discussion, probably before I knew about this site, or perhaps topic was in a forum I can not access (yet).

One of those may or may not be true. :)

 

But seriously, generally speaking, it's not unusual for forums to have secret/hidden features that are by invitation only.

 

I was a member of a huge Australian forum for about 11 years before I got an invitation to an area that I didn't even know existed.

 

FWIW, the main criteria for being invited was that fellow users rated me, not my posts, here's a screenie...

Users could click on one of the emoticons (called "aura") on the left to rate me, not to rate my post. When a person's average aura exceeded a certain level, they got the invite. And yes, should their average aura drop below the minimum required, their access was removed.

You didn't said a word since 2014 but you bothered youself just to tell us about your frustration!

Must be a serious situation to you!

 

Just relax. This is not as dramatic as it seems to you.

The least thing we could do to thank donors is creating this thread.

Donors, contributors, active members and posters are very important to any forum

They are the main power of every forum, and without them, nothing would be possible.

 

Besides, admins have all rights to do anything in their own forums.

if they ever decide to reward donors by creating a whole section especially for them, no one would be eligible to disagree, and i'm sure they will not ask anyone for permission first, including me.

 

You'd probably get more out of what someone like me has to say if you looked at the words I wrote and didn't worry quite as much about taking the time to look up when someone did or didn't post. You're not that shallow, are you?

 

Again, you wish to frame what's being discussed here as 'thanking' people. Sorry, but that's not what it is. You're inviting people to purchase levels of status here at Nsane. One of reasonable intelligence would likely conclude that would make any 'status' here kind of worthless, since it could be bought just like a hamburger at a McDonald's :)  Sounds like what you really want to do is make Nsane a pay site altogether.  When some posters above ask questions about what they'll be getting for their 'donations', they're implicitly admitting that what I say is true.... they want to know what their getting for the status they paid for.  Who knows, maybe a better topic for discussion might be to examine why Nsane is having such difficulty with its operating costs when the site managed to survive for so long without developing paywalls within the site.

 

As for your comment about my posting, fact is after the business with the Microsoft licensing thread that was closed off to people who didn't have enough posts for you (mentioned by me here above...) I didn't return much to Nsane, and therefore had nothing to say.  To be honest, I found the policy repulsive and didn't want to be around it. I came by now because an old friend here sent me an email about how it was getting worse here with this new stuff, and I dropped by to see for myself. Got a problem with that?  If yes, so be it. If you're going to build walls around areas of the site, doesn't surprise me that you'd want to stifle free speech and opinions while you're at it.

 

Finally, what you describe regarding admin authority ("...have all rights to do anything in their own forums". "...no one would be eligible to disagree")  is not a description of a mod on an internet thread, It's a thesis on dictatorship. So much for the freedom of thought and software that once was Nsane!

Well, i'm not gonna hijack this thread just for your beautiful eyes and explain to you how you have all things wrong!

Just believe what you want and keep complaining about things not even concerning you.

 

Someone woke you up from your lethargy just to rescue our forums?

Sorry to say that we already have many active and helpful guys for that!

Your brief response actually tells me quite a lot. One thing is for sure Jordan, given how much Nsane was down over the past year or so, combined with the financial difficulties you and other mods have mentioned in posts here, if you "already have many helpful guys" I guess what you think is 'helpful' hasn't been working out for you too well, has it?   Maybe time to listen to some other opinions instead of childishly calling them 'complaints'.

 

Good luck!
