Wow. I've been a member of DPC since sometime in 2002, so it's not like I just walked in off the street. My wife is ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/user_id/811.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/user_id/811.gif', '/') + 1) . ' karmat, and she's no noob around here, either, and I know the story behind what has driven a lot of decisions.

But it was a bit sad to come back to the site recently and find that I can't even vote on most of the challenges without being a paying member.

'Twas also a bit (no, a lot...) disappointing to see that the Site Suggestions forum had been moved offsite. Wow. I surely didn't fail led to create a new account on a new service so that I could leave a suggestion about this site...

I know there are concerns about trolls, and I realize that "users" of the site really don't want "non-users" voting on their pics, since, well, we don't have much vested interest in voting "correctly".

But, well, since I'm not a troll, and I haven't entered in a LONG time, it's a bit frustrating to have to pay a yearly fee to vote on pictures.

Anyway, "Hi" to my old friends, sorry if I couldn't vote on your fine photos.

im sure the site owner was more involved back then too, now he's a mythological creature.

:) Hey there old-timer.

FWIW, I've only been here a few years, but I agree with everything you've said. Frankly it's a shame what's happening here.

On the up side, the community here is still pretty wonderful, even if the administration doesn't seem to "get it".

Have you considered sticking around this time and throwing in your hat on some of the open challenges?

I wasn't here way back when, and I'm still a newbie (more or less) to this site... but I like it.

I have looked at archived challenges, looked at old threads, and have seen what "used to be" and "what it is now", which seem like different worlds... but, that being said... I'm glad I'm a part of this place. Met some pretty wonderful people here, and hope to learn and grow each and every day I'm here.

$25 seems to me a mere pittance to support the site and the community for what you can glean from both.

Cough it up! LOL!!!

With a smile, I reply - "You're ignoring the fact that I'm using almost nothing that the site offers." ;)
