I'm pretty sure I have privileges.
Nobody has privileges to post in any threads in SSC unless they are the author or an admin.

You can't reply to threads in SSC. Here is a link with more info on that.
The only feedback I have for Plus is that I think $50/year is extremely high for what you get. Heck, it's more expensive than an AMA membership that gets us a monthly magazine and helps further our hobby. I think that the only people you're going to get to pay for that are re-sellers that want their ads up front.

That's what the change is all about.
Value adding for paid memberships.
Just please throw us a bone and implement something so everyone can see a quantity of new ads posted by everyone.
And a quantity around 20 or maybe even more would be truly spectacular.

Maybe a "Average" membership level for $10/year that brings back the old bar

I don't see why having ads in the classifieds section is so important to RCG. Every advertiser from the U.S. to China has their ad playing 24/7 across every unused square inch of this website. I can't go anywhere without accidentally clicking on some company's advertisement.

The classifieds section was for regular members who wanted to trade or buy/sell their items while bargaining and negotiating with each other. It was a good system (at least from my point of view) and it was clear of advertiser pollution. Now instead, members who pay the most (or who are invited into the plus membership) will have their ads artificially bumped to the top. The whole point of a equal and fair barter system is lost when this happens.

I have a complaint thread started in the proper location if anyone wants to chime in there:
I made a suggestion that would be awesome if they would just implement it.

Its not possible for anyone to chime in on your post in SSC. Only Admin and yourself as the thread creator can post in that section.

+1... It's too distracting and it just doesn't look right.

The link to view images from all the classifieds was dropped by mistake. It will appear again shortly.

Yeah it's something we snuck in there and probably a lot of people never even noticed it, but once you've used it you can't live without it.

Yes please change it back, i don't look at a gold member any different than I do a regular member.
Is there a way we can get a petition to get it back to the way it was.
