Re: Someone Posting in FSOT w/out a Site Supporter why am i paying for it?

Site supporter gets you a bigger inbox, less ad's, and the option to put a spiff title thing under your Avi. I don't think you should have to pay to list FSOT. I know I would just sell on a different CD board if DS charged!!

I wouldnt buy or sell here if it cost me. I can't afford it. I don't sell on ebay often either.

We were all n00bs at some point. And as far as I know, you don't have to pay to post in ANY forum here. That would totally ruin DS, IMO. Alot of mamas use this place to sell when they HAVE to as well as selling when they want to

I have to say that we all can't afford to be site supporters and someone of us also can afford to buy full price brand new diapers. That is why FSOT is great! I guess i could understand a certain amount of posts...but not being a site supporter it isn't fair for the rest of us that truly can't afford it!

I am going to have to agree. If ds starts charging fees, i would just go somewhere else too. I think it is a great community here. even if the moms dontpay 1.99 to sell.

I also disagree. DS is a free site and always has been. I have been here quite a while too and have b/s/t a lot in FSOT though I usually stick to the Diaper Chatters forums. I have no interest in being a Site Supporter just to have a larger inbox, and the clever phrase, and I use Firefox to get rid of the ads. I don't choose who I b/s/t based on whether they have a site supporter sign either. In fact, I rarely even notice it since a lot of scammers have been site supporters. It doesn't weed out the scammers at all. It just gives DS money. That's all. Anyone can join Diaperswappers and no they don't need to pay.

If you didn't know what you were paying for when you subscribed as a "site supporter" then you should definitely check it out. That's not what you are paying for.

DS has always been a free site. I'm a site supporter purely for the bigger inbox and no ads.

Not being a site supporter does not mean you are not supporting the site. The way advertising works is the site gets paid for the ads being shown by the companies, so if people opt out of the ads, they pay to make up the loss in revenue, but not being a site supporter = being bombarded with ads, and therefore, helping to pay for the site

I don't agree. I think I pay enough by having to look at annoying ads.
