I visited the Maryland board to read some of their reactions to the games and I noticed a lot of the content is VIP but only for Maryland VIPer's even though I'm a VIPer here. So obviously the VIP status doesn't apply across other sites. This is the first premium membership I've had on sports boards and I'm wondering if this is a typical setup or if you're a paying member on one site, you get the premium content of the other sites. KTnks.
Common, but I do think they are talking about switching here to be able to read other vip info on other sites if I remember correctly.
Gold medals aren't really made of gold. They're made of sweat, determination, and a hard-to-find alloy called guts.
That would be great, especially with Maryland and Rutgers coming in and I knowing practically nothing about their schools.
I had Iowa Rivals before here, and I believe it was pretty much the same, if other boards had premium stuff, I couldn't see it
Yeah, it's common. I've been reading the Terps board as well. One nice thing about their board, is they have an 'Inside Scoop' forum that is mostly VIP and a separate 'Terps Sports' forum that is mostly non-VIP.
I noticed that after a bit of exploring. A very handy filter for visiting fans.
Yea, our board has been around for a long time and has always had a premium board and then a "free" board. The free board isn't as active as it used to be and is often filled with a lot of trolls and clueless people posting nonsense. But theres still some good stuff sometimes.

Who are your worse violators? My guess would be Duke and Virginia.
No I meant Maryland trolls lol. Just dumb fans who do nothing but rip on our players, coaches, AD whatever nonstop
Do you have any ACC trolls that talk smack on your boards?
It's pretty typical for that on pay sites, but I do know one of the improvements they're looking to add here at 247 is to make a membership on one site extend to all others that are in the network.
As others have said, this is pretty common. You do, however, have access to the VIP articles on other sites - just not the board posts.
