Hey all, as of July 5th 2016:
Free-to-play accounts now have the same posting permissions as Premium Members.
Hurray! Anybody can post anywhere on the forums!
The Free-to-play subforum will be taken down. We'll be monitoring activity on the forums closely, so if there's any abuse or other problems, we'll have to reverse course on this decision.
If you have any questions, please let us know!
