Before the thread gets locked due to necro posting... the forums transitioned to the ownership of Perfect World Entertainment. As a result, your PWE account is being used for posting, not your old Cryptic account, and your post count and name reflect this change. Anything you posted before will be listed under the user "Archived Post."

Well this is a stickied thread, so it should be okay.

Big fan of the game, and I've returned recently from a hiatus.
I spend money in the cash shop (around $20 a month for any month I'm active), and I've been interested in the gold monthly sub, but I just don't see a strong benefit in it. Gold members, what are the biggest benefits for you? And cryptic, are there plans to make it more incentivized to pay monthly?

Based on Experience so far, Yes! especially when a single zen charge will remove a lot of the restrictions and the rest can be unlocked through zen charges(based on feature matrix page).

My Question: How long will it be before I have full posting privileges?

Yes, STO's F2P is much better. In fact, it's so good, when it first came out, a lot of people complained that there was no reason to go gold. Personally, even though I was and continue to be a subscriber, I'm happy with it because it opens up the game to a lot more people.

As for posting privileges, with the switchover to the new forums some time ago, I don't think there are any restrictions anymore. And if you can post here, then you should be good to go.

Wierd I'm getting this message at the top of the forum:

At this time, you may only post replies to threads that have already been created. After a certain amount of time has passed since your registration date, you will be able to create new threads in forums that allow it.
Can I safely ignore it?

Hmm, I'm not sure. I've been a gold member the entire time. I remember when the F2P first came out, you had to reach level 10 before you could post, but with the new forums, that went away.

When these forums came out, I used a PWE account to post without linking it to my Cryptic account and was able to make new threads right away, but maybe that's changed since then.

According to the Features Matrix forum access is supposed to be unlimited for silver members, but they might have added some sort of time delay now. You can always try to make new threads, and if you can't, I guess you just have to wait.
