Eh, I somewhat agree. Sometimes I don't want to log in when I am at someones elses house, but for people who never register I think they should.

Once a certain amount of members are on, guests don't have access. I don't remember the exact number, but I'm pretty sure it was lower that 1,500 users.

Guests haven't been able to search for years. Guests browsing is just dandy as we shut off that feature during peak times.

Get rid of the guest? Ya right! They see ads just as well as registered members... PBN would never get rid of thousands of ad impressions a day to make its site faster and its users happier...

Guess what. Guest users are users too. We only turn away guests when we HAVE to. To all the thousands of people per day who search google and end up on the site, it would be a severe disservice for us to force them to register just to find out if the link they clicked was even what they were looking for.

We constantly drive to speed the site up for EVERYONE, not just those who pay. In case you didn't notice, about a month ago we underwent a TOTAL replacement of ALL hardware that powers this site in an effort to speed it up. An effort that paid off greatly, and resulted in the site being fast pretty much all the time.

Stop being a drama queen.

With the amount of money PBN makes, the site should be wayy faster when there are a bunch of members on... Plus PBN is greedy, i've even tried to contact ed about buying PBN out and/or investing money into it and to make it a better site, but no response.

And what about templating the b/s/t forums? Lots of ppl have asked for that, it would take virtually NO additional bandwidth to do that... I've even wrote the mod for vB and offered it to ed for FREE, all i get was a slap in the face, and an email telling me to stop developing mods for pbn...

Can somone ban him? There has already been a talk about this. Go looking the supporting member topic in updates. People were complaining about where the money goes to in the site. You have been here for one month, so if you don't like it, go away, SIMPLE.

Do tell, what could you possibly know about PBN's finances?

wrong thread for your question........ if they needed something they would ask for it.

Why don't you post on your 03 acount? Were you banned on all three of those acounts? If so that means you are on BOS right? You don't even type correctly, how can I take your thoughts seriously?

I doubt you know what it costs to run a site of this size, and I'm almost certain you've no idea how much revenue the advertising actually brings in.

And as far as the business management degree, I hope you realize that there's a good reason all real majors mock the people majoring in business.

^^ Call me an ***, but I laughed.

Bagel, you and me would get along great

But no, abolishing the guests ability to view the site is idiocy. One must present itself before one can buy. That is similar to a shop with no windows to allow a passerby to peer in - restricting the site makes this a private forum, not the aim of PBN as it is now, and definitely not the way to conduct a business.
