By “Dues paying Member”, does that include “Monthly subscriber Members” or “**Annually **paid Members”, or both???
Both are dues-paying members.
So… the first “potential” member is only out $49.99, whereas the second “serious potential member” is out $499.99 if they both decide to ‘drop-out’ after they both lose the ‘contest’.
Yea, I know where you are going to go next, so don’t bother.
The fact remains, there are some here that use the website and MB for free, and may decide to “join” for one month ONLY to get a shot at winning, with ZERO intention of staying when they lose.
Where is the fairness in that?
Yea… there isn’t any!
I don’t mind that there exists a hypothetical situation that isn’t fair.
