The FAQ page (http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/faq.php?faq=profiles) is riddled with links to Subscriber privileges but it says that there currently isn't a subscription running. It has said this for a while.

Is there ever going to be a return of the Subscription programme?

As far as I know, nope. Previous subscribers do still have some perks from the old system left, like being able to change their username, but I do think those webpages still need to be updated.

That was never a sub perk. We still have access to the backroom (which is dead anyway so meh) and we still have coloured usernames but that's about it.

So the average Steve would now never be able to use any of that fancy stuff such as animated & larger avatars/pretty titles unless they becomes some sort of moderator (apparently they get subscription perks for free)?

I thought non-subs can have big avatars now? Have you tried?

Any 'official' word on this?

Ah probably. I saw an older thread which said something about subscribers having bigger avatars; I don't know if this has been normalised. The rest still stands though.

The shoutbox. I doubt that'll return. Too many snowflakes.

Subs was made defunct when the main perks of it were opened to everyone, free of charge. However, because of the permissions group that it automatically assigned to subs, it still technically exists in a legacy form. Subs can change the colour of their username, access an age old arcade in some form, appear offline to non-subs (invisible) and access The Back Room (private [dead] forum).

They used to be able to exclusively have big avatars and also had access to a shoutbox. Big avatars should be available to all afaik and the shoutbox is gone - unlikely to make a return because of the amount of CT and stuff that happened in it. :rolleyes:

Hope that answered your question... I'll see if I can poke CT to remove mentions of subs from the FAQ system.

Do they? I hope not, people posted there on the understanding that it wouldn't be viewable to most people.

An old private forum where subscribers could IM each other and post pictures of themselves mostly naked.

They do not. Only those in the subs usergroups have access to that forum.

Is that usergroup just whoever happened to be a sub at the point of the changeover?
