    Does that imply purchasing the Premium Membership?

    It sure does. I can see you joined a while ago, so remember the good old days. Since they have been pushing premium memberships. more members ahve left the forum as they have felt not wanted as such. You had already jumped thorugh one set of hoops, then you have to jump through more hoops or pay up to access parts of the fourm you used to access.

    Yes for new members, they can get the 3 likes, but for all us old guys its not on.

    It shows you what the world is coming too, everone is after making a quick buck.

    I can understand how you feel. You are right. I joined the forum just 6 months ago. So am not pretty much aware of what the picture was before.
    If I am not wrong, the rule of 'likes' to become an established member is same for new as well as old users. I know it can be hard to get likes sometimes, but it's not that difficult. You already have one. Just need two more. Since you are quite old here, I think you will be able to figure out a way to get those two likes quickly without much trouble.

    Best of luck mate!

    Yeah, the lieks is the new system, however any members on the old system have had privilages reset meaning we can no longer access things unless we pay or re qualify by getting likes.

    Its really no on to be honest.

    The forums are providing a service, so $25 is reasonable. And it's not like 3 likes are hard to get if you contribute. I am a veteran user that recently rejoined DP, and I welcome the change in likes (even though I don't have 3 likes yet) It weeds out bs posts, and users.

    I can't agree more with you @KniveZ. Even if DP is free to use for everyone, "there ain't no such thing as a free lunch". You can't get something for nothing. What some don't seem to realize is:
    1. Even if you have to pay $25 to become a Premium Member to be able to access and use specific areas of Marketplace and BST, you simultaneously open yourself to one or more ways of making money and this gives you an additional opportunity to recover those $25.
    2. There's always an alternate route of getting 3 'likes' if for any reason you are not able to purchase the Premium Membership.
    3. Getting 3 'likes' is not as hard as some people think. There's always something useful and unique you can contribute to the forum out of your knowledge and experience. Moreover, there are always people looking for help with some query and posting a reply that helps to answer it often gets you the 'likes' quickly.
    4. If you start with a negative mindset and think about getting 'likes' as some overburdening task, you won't probably get them even after creating a thousand useful posts.
    5. In most cases, starting confidently and with a positive attitude gets you the 'likes' faster than you expect. Patience and perseverance are equally necessary. If you don't have the 'likes' by the time you expect to have them, instead of getting discouraged and disappointed, if you keep on trying, you are sure to get them within some time – at least if you believe so.
    6. A public and global forum like this one is highly vulnerable to spammers. 'Likes' is a way to prevent them from posting crap and greatly helps to keep the forum clean.
    7. If you want to get gratified immediately and can't wait to get the 3 'likes', nothing can help except purchasing the Premium Membership - that too if you have the money. (Here you go back again to the first point.)
    8. Complain about the 'likes' system and you'll most probably get yourself at the ban hammer's end. (The poster above you ..... till he remains banned, best exemplifies this.)
    You have mentioned that you still don't have the 3 'likes'. But as I see now, you're already through with it. (Welcome to the establishment.;)) This is enough to demonstrate that starting with a positive mindset will quickly get you there.

    Cheers.:)
