    Default I thought I was grandfathered in when it comes to rides

    Okay well I have been playing Free Realms since before the whole big December update a few years back. I also bought a ride before the whole "you-have-to-be-a-member-to-use-your-ride" thing. I will admit I have not gotten on in months because my old laptop couldn't handle the game, so I just started today and I tried to use my ride and it's giving me the whole "you-have-to-be-a-member" thing. Did I miss something?

    This happened to me to, I used to buy a couple months of Membership until it kept making me loose my ride option. I finally got lifetime cause it's much easier to just pay a tad bit more than your used to for a unlimited amount of membership. Anyways... I believe they made it members only for rides so they get more costumers buying Membership, increasing SOE's money..

    I think that's rude, for them to grandfather me in and then turn on me. Hmm, well $34 isn't bad for a lifetime membership.

    Also, what's with the yellow usernames? Is that to distinguish members?

    I have a lifetime membership.. and yea I think it's unfair for them to just do that. But then again, companies always do whatever they can to get money =.=

    Yeah - I was hearing someone complaining about this as well.

    They were out for 3 months, and then they weren't a member anymore, when they had lifetime. As Iris said, most companies do this to get money out of there consumers. But Im glad you posted this here. I would also send a Ticket to the refs about this as well, and maybe give them a call. That does not seem fair what so ever

    According to the information they put out when this policy was designed, it only applied to rides purchased with SC, and existing rides would be grandfathered. When they finally got around to implementing it much later (this month) they reneged on the previous statement and made it a block on all mounts. There is a rather heated debate about the issue on the FROF, but we have not managed to get a staff comment yet. Feel free to come add your input.
