The advertisement on this site is a bit too much on your (or my) face, for my taste, but the forum has improved. I no longer see bullies around and I hear Zootician is gone, which I´m not convinced, but at least if he´s around he´s not bothering me.

Hi mate,

 

the forum is certainly back on track.  I realy enjoy talking to folks in here.

But it's the people that make the forum.

 

So basically WE generate the content that's worth coming to this website for

 

U2 should be paying us $50 each to be subscribing to US!!!

 

Hiya.

 

M. James: Thatwas meant as a general feedback. I normally explicitly disagree with what wassaid on the initial post when it’s the case. And by that I mean I agree withBasher. As he made a strong argument about the price I talked about ´the rest`.

 

What Itried to say is that the pre-sale codes is the main reason I subscribed in thepast as I normally use this forum and All About U2 only. It doesn’t mean Ithink it’s ok to be charged such amount [or to be charged at all], though.

 

Kris: Imeant that I think the prices of the products on their online shop could bedisplayed in currencies other than dollars.

 

Iappreciate your replies. They’ll help me be clearer in the future.

sorry to say this but i do agree Dawn i don't think they really give a monkeys about the folk on here to tell the truth.

 

thing is they will probably do something like put out some unreleased stuff on here just to appease folk and like normal it will all be forgotten.....hope thats not the case though.

 

Barry.. I can't even see them putting out unreleased stuff.. they don't care that people are getting fucked over by this place.. it's been going on for a long time, now.. and nobody cares!! I think it's a kick in the teeth for the subscribers to put the AH songs out on vinyl... the subs gift is sposed to be exclusive.. what a pile of poo.. mind.. I still don't know what the AH songs are like.. I haven't received mine yet.. and I re-subbed in october, I think..

i could burn it to disc and send it down to ye....

 

lol - nah.. thanks.. I'm not that fussed.. lol

Dawn , Barry,

 

If anything, we are just finally proving to ourselves that this site has feck all to do with the band, and that they really don't care.

 

If we get a response, bloody brilliant.

But if not, well at least we know where we stand.

 

Let's not give up for the minute though - if you have any Zootop mates on Facebook  or what-not that don't come here any more - ask them to pop in and leave their name. We haven't even cracked 50 yet.

 

Mind - I think that's not bad considering what a ghost town the Zoo is at the moment.

 

And if our Surrenders lets any Zootops at atu2 and interference know, we might see some more numbers.

cheers mates.

i find it quite strange that there has been no response of any sort so i guess this just proves what we've been saying that they are happy to take our cash but reluctant to listen to us...........

Hey bottom line is...  if your not happy... dont renew. I dont know what you people are looking for...  U2 is a business, just like any band is a business. With the way music/CD sales are today, the music industry is dying. I will resubscribe again. Im not saying your opinions are wrong, but if your that unhappy and dont want to pay... dont renew.  There are a lot of U2 haters out there...  I am still a Huge fan and would hate to see these guys stop doing what they do best,  make great music together. You have a choice wether you want to pay the fee or not, so if you dont like it...  dont renew

It's nothing to do with being U2 haters or any such rubbish.

 

And the hoary old chestnut of "don't renew" doesn't gel well with many of us.

 

Why?

 

Because we've paid to be members here since they first started taking fees, and believe it or not, we want to be part of the official fanclub.

Simple, yeah? 

We want to be here. 

We just want the site to work properly and be a fair representation of the band whose name is on the front page.

 

The technical issues etc that the majority of us are upset about vs the cost of subscibing, and the fact that a year into this new formatted site, stuff all has been done about it, is the issue at hand.

 

"Don't renew"

 

We're not that bloody stupid, that we don't understand that concept mate.

 

This site is a product like any other, and you have certains rights and expectations when purchasing a product.

In fairness, Bash and Mick are spot on. The site is sub standard, its a product and if its not up to scratch something has to be done. My sub ran out last week and couldnt give two shits about it... There are other factors in my decision not to renew but mainly its just not worth it. 40 euro or whatever it is i can spend on pokemon cards and Happy Meals...

 

And as for the music industry dying on its arse due to lack of cd sales etc etc... ME HOLE!!! Piracy has been around for years, as tommy tiernan said, " We all remember the big scandal of taping songs off the radio!" 15-20 quid for a mass produced bit of plastic and a case?? I'd say theyre losing their bollix alrite....

 

Sites not good enough, hasnt worked right for ages and its not really all that great. Simple.

I never said you were stupid or didnt get the concept... i didnt pay $50 to renew this year... 

 

 

this was taking from the e-mail i got back in October

Current U2.com subscribers who used their presale access code to buy tickets for 2009 European shows, and who wish to enter the presales for 2010 shows, can now resubscribe at a reduced rate.

 

i believe i paid 30 - 40 dollars to renew and again... i understnad your not happy with your "product"

and i understand you have every right to complain... im saying..  If your THAT UNHAPPY  with the product  dont buy it.
