That's not how it always was though. At this point, I'm sure anyone reading this already knows the intent and direction of this thread, I'm aware of that. This thread isn't to just start blatantly ranting but more of wanting to express how myself and some of the other users probably feel about GB's direction. I've already been pretty vocal about things like the amazing new Youtube compression quality for GB's tight pockets, but, what made me start this thread was the apparent tricaster party they held and only for paying members. Now, I understand the need for paid member content and I love how its left the weekly happy hour ground to greener pastures that I'm sure makes most people happy to be a member.
Yet, I'm certain I'm not alone in the district of not-paying-money-for-a-website. If anything I'd rather pay for something like a shirt, something that actually has physical purpose and represents what I'm a part of: a community.
Yet, that's something I no longer feel a part of, outside of the usual round of been there content their is really nothing new to GB for someone like myself. Where there was things like TANG and mailbags along with the occasional random smart phone videos Jeff would shoot, their is now paid members content, and a lot of it I will probably never see. By now the picture I'm painting should be fairly clear, though to put it in brighter perspective: scroll your eyes several inches to the title.
