I hope they have better luck than I with the VIP memembership. Paid about a month ago, posted in various sections, PMs to Kev, still no access.

The VIP system is broken and despite Kev sending several requests for it to be fixed he has been ignored.

So what you are saying is that VIP is a scam and if paid by a credit card it would be considered fraud and a major crime?

VIP at SB isn't going to dramatically change your stay here.

It's just a bit less ad spam, larger reserve space for private messages, and access to a single extra board that just another prepping talk board.

VIP is primarily about helping to defray the costs of running this website because you want it to stick around.

Bandwidth usage at SB is YUGE! It costs a lot to keep the doors open here for everyone. VIPs are supporters of SB, not people looking a major upgrade in content or service here. If your goal is to help keep the lights on because you love the forum then go for it. If you are tight for money or hoping to get a lot of extra stuff then it isn't for you.

But the man said he paid and doesn’t have access to what was advertised. Therefore since he hasn’t been responded to, and it is known that this is an ongoing issue that hasn’t been resolved in months, it is clearly fraud. If paid with a credit card it’s credit card fraud and if I remember right a federal crime. If it doesn’t work then shut the payment down to pay for the vip section until it is resolved. Seems simple. No tight purse strings here but all the advertisements I get and pop ups there should be an excess of cash for the new “owners “.


OP good luck with your search. Hope you stay in Michigan from another Michigander.

I fully agree that monies paid should be given what was promised.

I certainly would not suggest that someone who has paid for it simply give up.

I'm just making sure that a person wanting VIP status understands what they are paying for.

Thank you both for the input. I agree overall I should get what I pay for and then decide on my course of action. It's why I paid for 3 months as an evaluation. So far, nothing in return. While not being overly dramatic, I agree on a small scale, it's fraud.

The VIP system is broke. We have complained to Vertical Scope about it and they have done nothing that we know of. Anyone having an issue with the VIP subscriptions should make, or join, a thread in the Site Information section. I’m hoping to get an accurate count of how many have this problem.

Did that already. Thank you. Just saying, a sticky in the meantime would be of great help. Maybe one of the site's resident attorneys could help us brothers and sisters out and help Vertical Scope overcome their stubbornness.

There aren't many "resident attorneys" here, though I'm sure some do play one on television.....


Without trying to speculate when a resolution happens, I'll bet it will be Kev's or the staff's efforts that see it done.

Hmm, shouldn't this be moved to a new topic? Talk about hijacking a thread...

It has been moved to a new thread in the correct section and turned into a sticky.... not that it will matter since I don't think VS even reads this stuff

I get SB VIP limo service at most major airports and free samples at Baskin Robbins.

Kev and all the staff and mods are aware of the issues with the VIP system. Kev has sent MANY requests to Vertical Scope to have it fixed and they have thus far ignored all such requests.

Personally, I think people should stop sending money in to the VIP system until VS get's off their ass and fixes this forum.

Just my opinion

Has this issue been fixed?

I am strongly considering being a site supporter and just kinda wanted to know if the issues have been worked out before I pull the trigger.

Thanks

It has been many moons since I have heard of an issue. I believe it back to normal.
Besides, if anyone has an issue, I can help. I have helped dozens get their VIP status.

Just to update, the donation system seemed to work just fine. No problems at all.
