    Only Apug Subscribers in the group exchange?

    Should the group exchange be limited to Apug Subscribers? This would increase the amount of Subscriber only content and greatly reduce the number of photogs who seem to drop in for the exchange and then disappear without ever sending any prints (has happened twice in the exchange).

    Asking for opinions.

    I think this should be one of the benefits of subscribing. Period.

    I voted yes in this poll. It shows that the participant has some level of commitment to APUG.

    Someone could start a group exchange that allows anyone. Seems silly to me.

    I voted no since this is on the edge of discrimination.

    There is quite a few things in life that you have to be paid member to participate in the activities, so I don't see how this could be considered discrimination, it would just be one of the perks of being a paid member, and being a paid member would show some commitment.

    Just my .02

    If I pay for it I want a members only forum with ratings like the classifieds.
    I don't think this is right for us to make rules like this for people when it is not sanctioned by the forum owners.

    Any changes to the group exchange whereby it would require subscription status would not be done without express consent of the forum owner. This was just a poll to drum up opinions.

    I just think that it would create confusion and hard feelings. I think subscriber perks should be in subscriber only areas.
