First off… I wasn’t looking for “free.” I don’t sign up for anything “free” because (in my few experiences) getting rid of “free” is more trouble than it’s worth.
And perhaps I should not have inquired here, but my thinking was that I’d check out the support and see whether I wanted to subscribe. I also assumed that since the forums are “married”(as JeffreyLees said) to the Learnables that it would give me an idea on how things work and whether I wanted to subscribe. …ie, if they don’t work in the forums, they’re not going to work just because her highness (me) decides to subscribe.
I have noticed that the forums are what I think of as a non-standard interface. I’m ok with that (or at least I think I am?)
I’m not sure what other details I can add. Other than that, it’s about a 33 percent chance things will work. That just doesn’t seem like something I want to pay for.
