I logged in today after not even looking at it for about a month, and everything looks different. I'm not sure that I'll ever go back. The group had more or less fallen apart anyway, and I think the new format makes it harder to use.

Premium membership costs twenty bucks a year, so you're a privileged character! You get access to special premium-only forums, but you'll probably be the only one there. The free part of the board is close to being dead, and I can't imagine there being a lot of people willing to pay twenty bucks a year for a few useless benefits like a special badge on your profile.

Say what? $20 for a forum that’s been free for more than a decade? I don’t even see any different features regarding my status.

$20 a year for a group whose best days were a long time ago. It used to be a great group, but not so much any more. Here's what you're supposed to get for twenty bucks. You got it for free, but don't seem to be impressed lol:

Reduced-Ad Experience - Enjoy a reduced-ad experience while supporting the community

Access to Premium Forums - Exclusive access to premium-only discussions

Exclusive Premium Badge - Stand out with a premium badge on your profile

Unlock Focused Reading Mode - Switch off the right column so you can focus on reading

You know, I feel real bad for those people who need help with their cockatiels. They’re so passionate and excited but they won’t get any help there anymore. :(

It all depends on whether anybody shows up there who's willing to give advice. I help out occasionally, mostly with breeding and genetic advice, but I'm too burned out to deal with a lot of the routine questions.

It’s a shame really. I hope there are still some passionate, knowledgeable bird lovers over there who will help. I have been actively invested in birds since 2010/2011 so I’ve been around a few times too. It’s funny because while my love for parrots hasn’t gone away in all that time, I just don’t have much to contribute to the bird community these days.
