Since i had a long time without the ability to write to the forum, i thought it would be a good idea to report my problems because i think those things could scare away a lot of users if they happen more often.
In general it summarizes as a very limited access to the site. I understand that without a subscription i cant view certain parts of the site, obviously the lessons and i thought that some of the instructor boards would be ok too. But a huge part of the forum disappeared for me. I cant tell which parts exactly but most of the instructor boards were gone.
I could not write to most parts of the forum too. That was weird because in some places i still could post things.
Heres a list of the forum parts and what i was able to do:
GMC, Lessons and Practicing - Reply and New Topic possible
Community Activities and Tutorials (and all sub-boards) - Nothing
Chill Out Room - Nothing
Wiki and Reviews > Wiki Writers - Reply and New Topic possible
Wiki and Reviews > Gear Reviews - Nothing
Wiki and Reviews > Album Reviews - Nothing
Wiki and Reviews > Concert Reviews - Nothing
Introduce Yourself ! - Reply and New Topic possible
Misc. Discussions > Electronic Entertainment - Reply and New Topic possible
Misc. Discussions > GMC site feedback & suggestions - Nothing
Additionaly i could not see attachments in the forum.
This would all be somehow ok, i thought its because my subscription ended that i lost some rights in the forum, if i didnt end up with less rights than a guest on this site. This means that i could see more in the forum without logging in. All boards were visible and also the attachments.
Maybe this is a desired behaviour or just a temporary bug (temporary = happened only to me) but cutting down the rights like this could realy force some users away from this site...
