    I've come across a few people who are under the impression that you need to pay to use CK5, but I think I've set them straight. I'm just wondering if it's not blatantly obvious that you don't need to pay to come here and post in some forums. I don't know where they got this idea but I'm sure there are more misguided souls out there that would come here if they knew different. Of course they'd get sucked in and end up paying anyways, but we won't tell them that. :ignore:
    I'm just wondering why some people think this and if there's anything else you can do besides the FAQ to attract more people, if that's what you want to do.

    I know you are right because I have seen people talking at other websites saying the whole thing is pay only, very easy for false info to spread, I'm open for ideas.

    Definitely something big and flashy, and conspicuously located on the Home page. Allowing to misconception to continue does this site a dis-service IMO.

    You know I don't think I ever even posted until a week after I paid for my membership. I use to just come and read. I didn't realize or "feel right" posting and not being a member. I sometimes wonder how drunk I would have got that day if I had not spent that $25 on this membership.
