    it was so nice when you didn't have to fork out some cash to talk to people about sellin your truck on here. I just put my truck up on e-bay becasue I didn;t have a membership here and it cost me $44 damn dollars. this site was so much better before there where "members".

    Sorry bout the bitchen

    Well I understand your bitchin, just turn the situation around, if it were your site would you be willing to pay out the money for upkeep? Kinda like throwing a big party every weekend and your the one that always has to buy the beer. Fun for awhile but it gets to be a problem quickly.

    Hmmm....
    That $44 would have almost paid for 2 memberships. /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    Whats the use of joining to sell your truck when you won't need the membership after the sell. Granted this site has a good size customer base, but not as big as e-bay. I'm with Travis. I'm not going to join just to sell. Once they start chargeing to post it will be my last. Slowly they are taking away all the benefits to non-members. This is a good site but not the only one.

    You get what you pay for.If you don't pay nothin,you're not getting gyped on anything.You get more than your moneys worth cause you didn't spend any.To me it's worth the $25 to help keep a good site open.There's only 3 forums you can't get into unless you pay.The rest is free and a lot of you won't even fill out your profile{ashamed of what you drive,if you're old enough to }.Beggars can't be to picky.Sorry if I offended the wrong one,but,freeloaders are one of my gripes /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif

    There's somethings money can't buy. I don't think its about the money. Even a kid that can't drive could afford 25 bucks. Donations would be one thing. If my buddy needs help rebuilding his rearend, I'd be more than willing to help unconditionly. If he wants to trough in a twelve pack and a meal, cool. I would never ask for it. With members and non-members, it crates an US and THEM thing. It kind of takes away the spirit of sharing knowlegde. I'll donate $100.00 if the iorn curtain of the mebership ever falls.

    Why don't they take a lesson from PBS. This is how much I need to operate! And I'm sure he'll get it. When its comes to helping the fellow K5er I'm sorry but you can't put a dollar value or a membership on it. But you can put a dollar value on a membership. It's not so much the asking for help, but the denial of help that bothers me.

    Most members and non-members get along just find until someone (you) comes along stirring S*!t up. If you realized how big and detailed this site is, you'd have no problem with paying only $25 for a membership. This is not even factoring in the discounts you get from certain vendors. These discounts alone would more than pay off the membership if you chose to use them. I'm 16, and payed for my own membership. It was definately worth it. What everyone else says about having to pay to play is exactly right. Being a non-member is fine if all you want to do is look at and respond to posts, but if you want to use this site for your own personal gain (selling something) then shell out $25 and become a member. /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif I thought my dad was cheap but good god...

    Re: I can\'t post anything for sale cause I\'m not a member correct?

    Has anyone never helped you because of you having a blue user name? It's not an us against them thing. Never has been. If you feel that way then you are sadly mistaken...

    I don't understand why you would be willing to donate $100 bucks to help keep this site up if there were no members? What difference does that make? It still had to be paid for by someone, that someone being Steve. Do you know how much a server costs? Do you know how much bandwidth costs? Do you know how much time goes into this site? If you did then you wouldn't complain.

    The for sale section has become for paying members to sell items to help protect all users. It keeps people out only looking to get something for nothing and stealing. You as a non member may still buy items there. I would think as someone who might be intrusting a large sum of money someday on an item knowing the person you are buying from is a good person would be a good thing.

    If you were to place an ad in the local paper, with large (not the postage stamp size like the paper classifieds) multiple color pics and all the info you can list here, how much you think that would run you? You pay by the line in the paper... so you couldn't even add in the little things you have done to your truck or need to be mentioned.

    I myself being a member of this site have won the monthly drawing and the WTO hydro steering set up. I wouldn't even had had that chance if I didn't sign up. Sure not everyone will win... but you might, and it's a better chance then playing the lotto...

    This site I have come to find is more then worth the money. If you feel it's not then your choice. Nobody is holding a gun to your head... /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    Re: I can\'t post anything for sale cause I\'m not a member correct?

    I don't think you can say Ras doesn't realize the value of the site, take a look at his registered date. He's been here a lot longer than some. As far as stirring stiff up, he was just voicing his opinion, which you're free to agree or disagree with him. If he's willing to donate, I don't think it's a matter of being cheap now is it? I don't know that that was called for. I have no problem with Steve's vision for the site, but neither do I have a problem with other people's opinions.

    I was a longtime blubie, coming from a 69-72 Blazer board that shut down. In that time I both starting spending a lot more time here and realizing what a benefit this site was. My membership was bought to support the site. I've put up some junk I have lying around for sale, which is a bonus (not that I've sold anything, lol). Still, I have to disagree with Rasberry about the blue vs. orange thing.

    Nothing has changed for me since I turned orange as far as advice or replies is concerned, more to the point I think some people encourage non-members to get to know the site and join if they see the value in it. I don't agree with the posts that degenerate when one member tries to shame someone into buying a membership. No one should need an excuse not to buy a membership. If it isn't worth it to them, it isn't worth it.

    So .. I think you're way off base Rasberry, but your opinion is certainly as valid as mine.

    Afroman, I'm glad you found the site of enough worth to join, but I don't think that entitles you to anything more than what's included in the $25. Being orange doesn't give your opinion any more weight than being blue. Less, in some cases ..

    Just my opinion, for what it's worth.

    Re: I can\'t post anything for sale cause I\'m not a member correct?

    I have issues with not only this but other peoples responces to other posts.
    Afroman, I think people are allowed to have their own veiws and I personally respect that, I may not understand or respect their view but I'm not here to judge. I think more people would respond to, If you were to join this site you would recive benifits that more than make up for the inital fee. Instead of "people like you stirring up the S#@T".
    My issue (not outstanding) People will pay for their Broadband/DSL connection. If the site they like is not responding however they will find another faster site to visit, If you get my logic.
    Please no more personal attacks in the fourms, if you do not like someone not wanting to join, however coming up with an alternitive they think is viable. Don't respond with "stirring up the BLAH BLAH BLAH" Just OK fine or nothing at all would suffice. Everyone is a potencial member and some give the impression of MEMBERSHIP=HOLYNESS. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif
