I don't think a feedback thread should be getting locked myself especially when members are expressing their feelings about the new forum. Could you explain why this has happened?
This forum has really gone down hill Imo, the general "feeling" of it seems to have gone and everywhere I look all I'm reading is negative comments to the point now that numerous paying members want refunds, it's a sad state of affairs really considering what a good club it was.
Fair play to you for trying and I know you cant please everyone but why not just listen to what members want from the forum, after all they are your paying customers now effectively.
There is no doubt the club can be a massive help to it's members but for people like myself that very rarely ask for help and more often than not only post to try and help others it seems a bit silly that I would have to pay to do that now but as a non paying member I can view everything I would ever need to know about a 6 for free and could babble as much shit as I wanted in General/off topic (which was one thing people said they wanted to stop with a new forum and paying a fee). Perhaps simply giving the paying members the priveledge to start a new topic and non paying members reply only status would be more appropriate.
