Those of you who have been reading my journals for a long time know that me and sarcasm go well together, a bit like Tourette syndrome and swearing. So, of course, my title is a lie.
Since when were senior members downgraded to non-premium? We no longer get to browse with more than 24 thumbs per page, and critically, we can no longer be beta testers.
This has been a gradual process. As dA has slowly changed and been broken piece by piece, the line between senior and premium has blurred, with us being able to use some features and not others... and now the line is thinning again, with us on the wrong side. Currently, we can still use CSS journals and CSS gallery folders, but not much else.
I mean, it's not even like there are THAT many senior members so as to eat into dA's profit margin. And don't forget that we became senior for a reason - some staff, at some point in time, came to an agreement that each one of us benefited the community in a significant way.
A Portal quote springs to mind: "Thank you for helping us help you help us all".
Well, all I can say is, if you're not willing to help me, don't expect any help in return.
Edit: Now we can't even use journal CSS. We can make a theme, edit it and preview it, but as soon as we save, it's all lost. Nice.
