Non-premium members be allowed to use PMs?

Just asking because I have about five or six PMs sitting there which I have not been able to open because I am not a premium member.

I understand the need to have premium members and the distinction, but surely we could read our PMs?

Thanks!

Elvis did this poll last fall:

http://forum.interference.com/t164435.html

It was decided then to not change anything. There has also been other discussion in the past of making certain premium features available to all members, with no change taking place.

I'm not the one who makes such decisions...that would be Elvis...but I've stated before that people pay for premium membership to be able to access a list of features. To suddenly have one of those benefits, which may have been a huge factor in deciding to purchase a premium membership, become free for everybody, I think that could rightfully make some premium members upset. Also, Elvis just posted yesterday that the fee for premium membership increased. I would venture to guess that after raising the fee, it's not likely that he's going to give up one of the benefits that people are paying for.

I still agree with what Canadiens said about allowing everyone to use PMs, because it is absolutely necessary for communication purposes.

I don't really check my personal e-mail because I have other means like AIM and Facebook and I have a seperate email for work.

But, I suppose, that isn't really possible now at $18.

Bonochick is correct, PMs are vital feature as part of the Premium Membership package. This wont' be changing.

^I have PM's in my box too. I think we should at least be able to read them...but its ok if we can't reply. I just don't like the temptation of wanting to read them!!

They're probably just general PMs like "happy birthday" or something, right? I don't think anyone can send you PMs if you're not a premium member.

I think those just get automatically sent to everyone.

Can't be. I just tried to PM you and a message comes up that you're not allowed to get PMs.

I think you can send non-premmies a PM if they're on your buddy list and you select to do the mass PM buddies thing or whatever it is. I'm pretty sure it overrides the whole "this user cannot receive private messages" business.
