Okay, Have I Missed Something? I haven't been in here for a while and now things look different. And I see things about membership levels. Do we have to pay now to be FPN members? Could someone please give me an update as to what's going on in here these days?

Welcome back... You must have been otherwise engaged for some time... :)

 

Because cost for running a large forum like this went ever up, paying memberships were inroduced, aimed at those people who make a living (partly) from dealing or advertising here on the forum.

It was always possible to donate, but now donating levels were introduced where you would get small tokens of gratitude from the forum.

And since a few moths extern advertising, first only pen related but now also other advertisements were introduced.

Some people dislike being bothered by ads so a donation form was introduced were as a reward the ads were turned of for that member.

 

Apart from that, as we are based in Europe, we have to comply with the European Cookie Laws, so we have a message informing you of our using cookies, which you have to click that you acknowledge.

 

Part of this is still experimental, we are trying to find ways to make this all as unobtrusive as possible to the members, while still getting enough revenue to uphold the running of this Forum. It is possible that we will find other/better ways to display things.

 

As it is, FPN is still free, but in that case you will have to accept a certain level of advertisement.

But we have asked the advertisement agencies to leave out certain type of advertisements. However, every now and then one slips through, end we would appreciate if you would report these to us, with the name of the ad, the type of obnoxious behaviour it displays, and if possible the url of the ad, and/or a screenshot so we can complain with the advertisement agencies.
