    I so totally object to this whole idea.

    Information about nursing needs to be free, must be free on this board.

    Premium membership should give us the ability to interact in or play with the "fun" or "superfluous" parts of this board, such as the breakroom, current events, games, chat, photo galleries, etc.

    Reading the premium membership forums should be accessible to all.

    The entire board is devoted to, among other things, sharing professional information and support. The previous poster suggests that this should only exist for "paying customers."

    You will never get everyone to pay for membership. Many just can't afford it. We are over 100,000 members now, many from foreign countries, many from so-called "third world" nations. What we pay for membership can be a month's pay for them.

    To deprive them--or any of us-- of access, because of a failure to pay, to anything that improves the quality of nursing skills and hence the overall development of our profession on a global level is unconscionable.
    I agree to disgree respectively,

    I disagree with the concept of all fun and no learning. People will be able to read the board just cannot send a reply. You can reply by stating it on the main chat boards by opening a new thread in the general discussion.

    I do not agree to pay for games when I can go to Yahoo games for free or aol games. That is my opinion for myself.

    I would like to see a combination of things for those who need to play games and others who seek out other information to increase their knowledge.
    I enjoy to see a combination and not just one sided.

    Everyone is entitle to their opinion and their perspective. There are no lost or winners here and this thread is to improve the premium membership for everyone not for an individual.

    My two cents......Do not attack....contribute to the cause and choose your battles prior to your attack.

    Well no one can say this is not a very democratic site. You have the freedom to choose your level of involvement. And yes, you sure CAN be involved and not lay out a PENNY to do it. I think it's a totally good deal, if you were to ask me.

    I haven't been receiving email notices on most of my subscribed threads for some time now. Is this a feature that has been changed to premium members only?
