Now that there are "Go PRO!" stuff does that mean that i will be treated like an unregistered member? Answered

I remember that before i registered i had to register to see all steps on one page and(i think) PDF download of Instructables out there So i registered Here And Loved it.
But Now, Pro?
Does that mean that just members will be treated by the system like an unregistered member by not having all steps on one page and such?
this is really dissapointing, More ads Everywhere and now You have to pay?
This is looking like on of those sick websites that have questions that you have to register to see the answers, And then you have to pay to your registered account to really see answers.

I have no problem with Pro, but taking things away from us???? Seriously, if you want to keep the site running, don't make it's members hate you!

Alternatives to pro:
  • Donate button
  • Ads purchased by people, not just google
  • Sell more than just t-shirts

They are not taking anything away. They told everyone when they added those features, that they would be able to use them for a short time to see what pro was like. You were just given features that you could try. If you want to keep these features, then pay the dollar ninty-five a month. Its not that much.

No they are not taking it away, your free trial of it expired. The PDF was part of the trial that they let you have for free to try the pro features.

They are taking it away, For 1+ Years i have had and enjoyed those features, Now they make up some random crap(Aka a free trial) and then have an excuse to remove it.

They need to pay bills, it's where they get money, the members that do pay are helping keep this site running, if no one paid, this site would most likely be gone.

Also, donate buttons do not work. You have to give people incentive.

You mean like providing a great service that people would want to donate to? If Instructables had that, I'd donate. owait. they do.

I am currently a paying member for another website that bills $7 a month.I didn't pro here,since I protest this.The other site is a game and people started getting labeled member,and nonmember for paying and free respectively.This is probably what will happen to this site too.
