0Feb 8, '05 by roxannekkbI am very late to this post today, but I've been gone for about two months, and tried to post on current events. I couldn't figure it out at first, and then I realized that the forum was now restricted.
I know that it is expensive to run a website, as we have two and are in the process of starting two others, and $24 is not a lot of money for most of us. However, what bothered me was that when the premium membership was first offered, I am sure that I read that it was only going to be an add-on of benefits. Nothing currently being offered was going to be restricted, but that being a member would give you extra perks. But it seems that benefits have been removed. And I think that aspect probably bothers other people as well, that premium membership is more to pay for what was once free, rather than getting any real additional benefits.
Anyway, my late 2 cents on the matter. I'll miss the CE forum, but oh well, c'est la vie.
0Feb 8, '05 by hypnotic_nurseI wish it were possible for non-premium members to post on threads which are congratulations (like weddings, births) or (like Pappy's) goodbyes. After my father's illness and death, it would have been nice to let people here know.
0Feb 8, '05 by *PICURN*the only thing that bothers me is not being able to post in the "break room" and "current events" forum
i guess i just don't really understand why only premium members are allowed to access these particular forums!
that was the only change i felt was kind of weird
like someone else mentioned, premium members i think should get benefits, but i don't think the non-premium members should necessarily be restricted from posting in some forums.

0Feb 22, '05 by AnerooIs there another way to pay besides paypal? Can I not pay with a CC? I have to wait a few days for paypal to do the thing with my checking account. :angryfire Is there another way that is quicker? I was getting excited about being able to use those threads and stuff again.

0Mar 19, '05 by giadsuthanxs for giving me the necessary information about the site and the advancement made up in the website :chuckle but sad to say that i prefer to use the site without further upgradement in the premium memebnership [but i assure you that once i can stand on my own legs i will be a member of your premiun membership so kindly excuse me for the momentquote=brian]please use this thread to discuss this announcement:
premium membership and recent changes to the forums
admin note added:
after further consideration, it would have been better to give a warning, so i will be opening both the break room and the current events forums until jan 2nd. give me a few minutes to re-open the forums and modify the announcement.
sorry for the error in judgement. (i'm human)
added note 12-8-04 10:30 am:
here is my rationale for starting the premium membership program, i posted this yesterday 12-7-04 @ 02:30 pm cst in the discussion thread here
i hope that helps you understand my reasoning. thanks!
0Jun 23, '05 by r_janiceI have a question: For the student membership, do you have to be a NURSING student or can you be a PRENURSING student who is starting school in fall '05 or fall '06 (depending on if anyone drops the '05 program)? Im taking my A&P I final tonite and starting A&P II on Monday in hopes to get in the fall'05 program. I want to be honest when picking my membership price .
PS I know its not a big difference in price, but with school, bills and a child every dollar counts.
0Oct 15, '05 by carveronicaI thought membership was free? I wanted to reply to others posting today and I thougt could reply, but it tells me I have to be a premium memember. I would like to know why
0Oct 15, '05 by KatnipYou can post for free on most threads, but there is a premium member section. If you are not a premium member you can read the posts in that section, but cannot post on them.
0Oct 16, '05 by lalajennCouldn't find the answer to my question but is the only way we can pay for premium membership is by paypal? I was trying to get the membership but I can only click on the pay by paypal button.

You can mail it. I'm going to do that next week.
0Jan 6, '06 by sanctuaryI love this whole site. I've been so busy that I have not had the time to really explore mary threads, but something got me going this year, and I wanna join. I'll have to send you a check. But I'm so pleased with the concept of a nursing site... I just love it. Thanks so much.
