    Silver member PM's

    I don't know if this has been covered but I just encounted this problem. I attempted to respond to a silver member's pm but I cannot because they have reached their maximum limit. Now I understand the requirement to limit their outgoing pm's but it seems like it would be advantageous to the paying members to be able to respond to pm's or follow up even if the none paying member has used up their PM allotment. Just an idea maybe others agree.

    I think it means they didn't actually read the rules that they checked off on.

    Seems the first guess was correct, but the message I got back said he had used his allotment. However if that is correct and once there allotment is used and they can't be contacted then I think it would be good to adjust this

    I still think if i paid for the "platinum" membership ohter than common sense there should be NO rules. I also noticed there are some more restriction that come up AFTER you pay for it, or maybe I didn't read the fine print either way...

    You can also pay via check or money order by contacting Skidoo and arranging it.

    So if you go to a concert or a play and you buy the most expensive ticket you think that should allow you to be loud and obnoxious, rude and disrespectful, stand up in front of everyone else and throw things at the stage? Great line of entitled thinking there. This is EXACTLY what other members are talking about. People in the Platinum group thinking they are better than other members. This is also EXACTLY why the rules we have for the Platinum group are in place. Thanks for validating those for us.

    The only extra rule in Platinum isn't even an extra rule. It was a rule always in place but silver and gold members no longer have the ability. That "extra" rule is not to post useless crap or shit in peoples for sale ads. As far as "common sense" goes, sadly it's not all that common anymore.

    TA: Allow me to say this without retaliation but your strong opinions & stance often conflict with your position.

    That was a terrible analogy & not every frustrated opinion is directed at you.

    My guess is this (paying) user is not likely looking to be "loud and obnoxious, rude and disrespectful".

    I don't feel it's unreasonable that paying users be capable of voicing their opinion w/out be ran over.
