      Hey, just want to put a little feedback on something.

      Today I have been downgraded to bronze status because according to my points, I didn't have 100 points that month. I understand the idea, you need to make sure that we will play and that your sponsors will get money, but I mean, Really locking article's that people already read, is that fair?

      I should of just saved them in a usb key I guess? O_O .... I say I don't mind if you downgrade people, but let them keep the articles they already read. (It sucks not being able to study what i've learned last months now.)

      Thanks,
      Steve

      Edit : ONly reason I got downgraded is because I had my finals and holidays, not much time to play :( OH well, February gold, here I come.

      Hey Simon

      I can understand being disappointed when finding yourself downgraded, but it is part of what you've signed up for and there are generally sound reasons for it from PokerStrategy.com's perspective.

      Perhaps with respect to the articles I think I have some sympathy for your point of view, but as you note there are mechanisms to capture these articles once you've reached a status to view them, so the lesson is to take advantage of those mechanisms!

      As for eval/forum/coaching restrictions, then I figure fair enough you lose access as the costs for these are ongoing and so require ongoing funding via rake.

      Having jumped up and down status lots through the last year, I've learned to take advantage of what I need as best I can, when I can. And remember, as soon as you get your points you are at the higher status for at least one month so you do have plenty of time.

      I think a decent chunk of people have been down graded this month due to christmas holiday etc. I've been down graded from gold myself :( But hey at the end of the day i'll just knuckle down abit more in hanuary (As we all should do) and no dought will be back to our origional satus's in no time.
