What's going on here?  I really liked the old version of his monthly stock summary which was a great inspiration to me, but now you have to pay a small amount to read it or join as a member.   Hum!!!!  Am I the only one feeling like this?

Steve puts a lot of effort into his work so he should be recompensed

Whats a few bucks to most people a mans time should be worth paying for
just like a plumber, lawyer, doctor, etc

oscarcwilliams, do you give away your work? Why don't you upload your entire portfolio to free sites? Surely it serves as inspiration for many others. Or you may want to charge some money for your work. Just maybe.

The difference is Oscar didnt give his work away for free, suck people in, then monetize. He is selling microstock, he always charged. You are comparing apples to oranges. Should people come here trolling for customers, when its supposed to be a forum where people help others? Just like the guy selling books.  ::)

We're talking about a small part of his website, where he offers premium content, that he's put up a token paywall of $2 for the first month followed by $5 thereafter. Most of you spend more everyday on coffee!!

His monthly earnings report, which are extremely useful, is unaffected.

Trolling for customers? Oh c'mon its a couple of bucks!  Get real. ::)

Don't like it then don't pay ~ just don't keep expecting people like Steve to give advice for free to his competitors.

Same here, read the link. https://www.backyardsilver.com/2020/01/blog-will-continue-as-before/


This is the reason I quit most of the forums that discuss microstock issues - microstockers (in a lot of cases) is an emotional nasty bunch of people who are looking to jump on one another and eat each other alive without even trying to employ an iota of rational thinking.

Then why was he here for years, giving advice for free to his competitors? And no, I wouldnt pay. And the purpose of a forum is give advice, and discuss stuff. What are you here for, if not that?

Steve is entitled to do anything he likes with the data and advice he puts on his blog.

You won't pay then good for you ~ perhaps you could write your own blog giving advice for free?  Then you'll be a happy bunny  ;D
