just an idea, epz offering distinction to e2 member. i know there are a lot of free member here which feel much enough with all of epz offering righ now. but maybe add more benefit like distinction will encourage them to upgrade, who knows. my idea base on, a lot of member who helped by critique gallery. well this cg can be broaden with the goal to reach some distinction by some advise from the team.

I am afraid your offering is no inducement to me to upgrade. It was your choice to pay the money, my choice (ex -E2) is not to Smile

Why pay for something which has little benefit?

well if you browse the forum there are some member who wants some challenge to their creativity, and maybe for some pro this maybe usefull for their business. from what i read, many member here get their distinction from rps. so why epz doesn't offer it? and i beleive a lot of beginner wants too...

29 a year that is all, you can easily spend three or four times this amount on just magazines.

With the internet as a resource why would anyone buy magazines? Last time I bought one must have been 10yrs ago, about the same time as I bought my last newspaper Wink

Because someone has to pay for the content at some point? It is like the argument for do you need professional (pick from list getting longer) journalist, photographer, musician........................

The content is often paid for via advertising - as on EPZ. Smile

That's a rather idealistic approach John.
I can't imagine many people would really pay for a magazine because they want to ensure that that magazine remains in print.
I have to agree with Mike. If I can find something on the internet for nothing, I'm not going to go to a newsagents and pay for it.
Neither, I suspect, will many others.

As odd as it sounds that's one of the reasons I still buy Black and White magazine. I do like the magazine but I would not like to think of it going out of print so I pay my 30 a year in the hope others will too. Don't buy any other magazines, I do sometimes buy newspapers but only for the photos.

I like magazines. You can take them anywhere, cut out the bits you like and file them, keep them in a pile and re-read them at leisure years later, pick them up and put them down at the page you're on, don't have to be stuck in front of a screen or computer, can read them easily without having to move your head ................ I could go on. I'll pay my money out for magazines any day.

Especially when the only benefit is its better to show your images at 600px rather than 1000pxWinkWinkWinkWinkWinkWinkWinkTongueTongueTongueTongueTongue

Funnily enough, my membership expired at midnight last night and I've absolutely no intention of renewing it.

There are sound and valid reasons for that which I shan't expand upon here but the only difference that I've seen today (as a non-payer) is that some of the images are smaller (obviously).

Apart from that, I can't see what I'm supposed to be missing out on.
