    1. The Rep Vision (i.e. the superpower to see who repped you) was privilege of the subscribed class. One day, the CEO decided to make it available to everyone

    2. There is another feature that used to be fee paying but now is free too

    3. And now, the Get Revision resources are also free?

    Is there a point being a fee-paying user anymore? Why is everything suddenly becoming free...?

    The Backroom. But that's crap now. Not that it was ever good to begin with.

    TSR decided to make the subscriptions free to help and support students over the exam period. Subscriptions don't exist anymore, as there's nothing to subscribe too, and subscribers would have been given refunds I believe.

    My guess would be that they decided the increase in page impressions and advertisement revenue would more than offset the loss in subscriber income.

    TSR is a business, they will have paid someone to analyse the numbers and predicted which would have been more profitable.

    Also you cannot become a sub anymore. It's only a matter of time before subs is done away with altogether.

    I'm excited that TSRG can offer all of the learning materials to students for free as it means everyone can get help, whatever their background.

    In which case, what will happen with the Back Room (or whatever it is called) forum, that only subs can see? Especially since the subscription thing is getting rid of?

    Subscriptions no longer exist, however there's only one thing that ex-subscribers still have the power to do without paying and which normal members can't do: change the colour of their username :laugh:

    I'm not sure what the company has planned for it, I know what I'd like to see done with it though. :lol:

    Yeah, must have been relatively recent, because I remember when all these first was open to everyone that initially they couldn't see who they had repped. Looks like all we're left with is the colourful username

    As I'm sure you'll know, what you see in public does not represent what happens in private.

    Well it depends if the CT give you permission to obliterate the threads, or whether they just want them in the ordinary bin!

    Or alternatively, such threads could be put in the appropriate place on the board (most likely Chat).

    In which case, where will such threads go, if there won't be a subscription service any more?

    The forum would most likely be on read only or hidden
