NON PREMIUM Member Update...

Due to rising costs and our promise to keep JG ad free for as long as we possibly can, we have decided to eliminate the following items for NON CONTRIBUTING members...


1) Cant join Social Groups
2) Cant be invisible
3) Cant view online users
4) Cant upload pics
5) Cant upload attachments
6) Cant post polls
7) Cant have an avatar
8) Cant have a signature
9) Cant use rep
10) Cant use friends list
11) Cant use smilies
12) 10 PMs instead of 500


We are sorry we have to do this, but with lack of support and very minimal revenue coming in its a decision that we had to make!

Thanks for your understanding!

And as always, If you wish to contribute...

Re: NON CONTRIBUTING Member Update...

Interesting but does this help save any money? I'm thinking it would save on the amount of bandwidth the site needs but I could be wrong. It had to be done though so hopefully costs will come down.

I was also thinking for people who don't check this section out you could send a site-wide message like Scott did warning people who leak Jeep info from this site.

Re: NON CONTRIBUTING Member Update...

I've been meaning to contribute for a while now, sorry it took so long. I understand, its all good!

The supporter link doesn't seem to be updated with this info, is it any level gets these features back? Also, with the level 3 is the sticker still included, I've wanted these but I thought I seen they were sold out...

Just wanted to clarify the new update.

-Thank you

I didnt see him say anything about "save money". Its to encourage membership (hint hint).

Im sure everyone that cares will see this when they log on and see their signature or avitar gone and come up this way to make a post about it dissapearing

I get that but I figured it could help at least in some way as the server wouldn't have to hold all that data for images and the like.

He makes comments in the Northeast Regional Section, so why wouldn't he be the first to respond.

Re: NON CONTRIBUTING Member Update...

Frankly I disagree with using "punishment" to promote a behavior. It's usually counterproductive.

That said, I respect any organization providing a subscriber-based, ad-free service. While I'm neither an avid nor long-time member, I have certainly benefitted from the knowledge here.

This place is like any other tool you use to work on your Jeep. I encourage anyone who has saved money on repairs or modifications because of this site to reinvest some of it here.
