Are you kidding?

First the majority-meaning over 95% or more were never charged the $5. That was something just started late last fall/early winter.

There aren't that many premium members. And he's not making a killing on advertising.


In fact, as far as advertising goes, it's actually a low earning car forum.

Most of the high ranking people on e30tech are also here, so anything you could ever want to know can pretty much get answered... spelling may be wrong on most items though :)

If you ever have a question about 325iX cars, turbo diesels (not turbo m20s) or m-tech things I have a wealth of knowledge on them.

You have to pay a $5 subscription fee to get in now. They didn't tell you regardless, thats why you haven't been activated. Gay right?

The new thing is that you can get in free through a member
using a referral. I saw it in chrises sig.

But I mean it's just $5 to be able sign up and post
all the time. Might be a good thing weeding out ricers with no money? idk.

Thats new. He did that as a result of all our bitching.

It confuses ppl and potential members like BB had no idea what was up. Even then, I'm still pissed chris is making money off of my content.

Yoshi what content of yours on E30Tech is Chris making money on?

5 speed swap thread? Your random posts of mostly useless quips? Your turbo project thread that reads like the chronicles of failure? I mean really Yoshi, get over the bitterness.

What else? It is a public domain, its a community board. You choose to contribute your ideas as such. Its not like you have some intellectual copyright on any of your written content.

I do wish you success on this new board though.

Also Chris now has a new message for visitors viewing as guest's. This was obviously a response to all the ruckus that was generated over the $5 fee episode.

Yes I know about all the crap chris has suddenly changed that has made nothing better. I'm not bitter anymore, people just keep bringing it up.

My content - > MS thread/5speed swap/24V guide/ M20 oil pan removal/ EFI diagnosis.

My point is that it IS public domain and I want my information to remain free for the public. "Its not like you have some intellectual copyright on any of your written content"? I actually do. Just the same as if you wrote a diary and someone stole a part of it and made money off of it. It's my IP and I can do with it what I want.
