Membership status, not very happy at all.

Okay, after 7 months of being a sponsor on this site, I stop being a sponsor and I have to pay for a membership?

I didn't sell a single item off of this website and STILL supported it. What do I get in return? A kick to the curb. I cannot even PM a moderator about this my account is so restricted.

So, Kawiforums, keep my ~$300 and stuff it. This is not how you treat a supporter.

I make stuff out of metal.

What were the benefits of being a sponsor and dishing out the 300 in the first place?

All this is just ADVICE because at the end of the day, you can do whatever the FUCK you wanna do.

Whore your slut out

Vendors have to pay $50/month to be on here advertising their products. He didn't sell any products, so he decided to stop forking out $50/month (makes sense).



I PM'd admin for you. Sending you a PM now with what I said. I hope it works out, man.

Most violated KF rule: 2. - Post titles should be descriptive of the contents of your post. i.e. "Help with fuel injectors" instead of "HELP!!!!"

Got ya, but wouldn't it make more sense to just post in the selling section and not pay a dime?

unless this is something new, ive never heard of being restricted so as to not be able to send admin, or anyone else a message.

what happens when you try to send a pm?


and you dont HAVE to pay for a membership, and you also dont have to be a supporter of the site in order to be here.

I vote they give this guy a gold membership at least ? he may be going the wrong away about it but common , 300 bucks should buy you at the very least a gold membership for life once you cancel your sponsorship ...

he made an investment, it didnt work out. you're talking about a consolation prize. there are no "trying" trophies in the real world.

I don't know , it just sounds kind of rough , is it too much to give the guy a membership ? I understand he was paying for the right to advertise on the forums but in the process he was sponsoring the site, same treatment should be given to any sponsor regardless if they made money or not.

But it is not my site and you guys run your house the way you guys see fair , I am only giving my worthless opinion out
