Pro-ness costs (roughly $2 per month, depending on the option you choose). You get to see all steps at once, be able to download Instructables as PDF files, send patches, access the pro-only forum and get a dinky little badge next to your name.

Don't you dare.

Nobody has "ripped you off". That implies somebody cheated you out of something that was rightfully yours. This website owes you and me nothing.

You have the same basic functionality of reading and writing instructables and posting to forums and answers, and 3 months of trying out some features that are going pro. Pro membership includes many new and awesome features that have never been utilized before. It is not "a ripoff of the features we already had" just because some features are going pro.

Do you think we should create a topic to debate about this, instead of comments, comments are unheard of, anywho
You have the same basic functionality of reading and writing instructables and posting to forums and answers,
Aha, No i don't there is allready a forum i can't assess, I can't view secondary images, which is as important as can be, i can't download any files uploaded to instructables, Very Important, and Worst of all, I can't view all steps on one page!(i am not saying what is happening to me, that is what will happen when the suddenly invented free trial goes off)

The forum you can't access is an added feature. It's new and created as a feature. You are not losing anything there. Secondary images are not being taken away. You can deal with an extra click per step. I would reiterate Eric's reasoning, but he said it much better than I ever could here.

And no, you shouldn't make a topic to debate it, because it's not necessary. Instructables is a business just like any other you go to, and as such, needs to make money. When other methods aren't profitable, they have to resort to things like this, and if all that people like you have to sacrifice is all-steps, you should be thankful.

Well i am not, You should spend a few days with the "set allsteps as default setting off, or even better, log off, that's how us members are being treated. Doing it this way makes Eric look like a money hungry jerk, that does not care about the experience of people who do not have the money to spend on such things.

Seems that the failure in this case is that you refuse to understand the analogy.

I wonder how many unheard-of meanings there are for "analogy."

  • an inference that if things agree in some respects they probably agree in others
  • drawing a comparison in order to show a similarity in some respect; "the operation of a computer presents and interesting analogy to the working of the brain"; "the models show by analogy how matter is built up"
  • doctrine of analogy: the religious belief that between creature and creator no similarity can be found so great but that the dissimilarity is always greater; any analogy between God and humans will always be inadequate
  • Two structures in biology are said to be analogous if they perform the same or similar function by a similar mechanism but evolved separately. Similar structures may have evolved through different pathways, a process known as convergent evolution, or may be homologous.
  • Analogy is the first studio album by the band Analogy. The album was reissued in 2004 on Akarma Records.
  • Analogy was a German and Italian psychedelic rock, progressive rock band, active in the 1970s. The band was launched by guitarist Martin Thurn when attending the European School, Varese. In 1968 Martin founded a band called SONS OF GIOVE. ...
  • Analogy is both the cognitive process of transferring information from a particular subject (the analogue or source) to another particular subject ...

If it's worth so much of your energy to complain about, is it not worth a measly couple of bucks?

If it was a measly couple of bucks I sure would do it, But it is not, Its more than 20 Bucks for the cheapest one, and the one that does cost a measly couple of bucks lasts a very short amount of time.
