Lone Star Jeep Club will allow you to make a profile, but if you do not pay your yearly dues, your profile will be locked and you cannot edit it.
The public can view your profile and you have access to the public forums.
When you do pay the ransom to access your forum profile on a public website, they do not unlock your profile in a timely manner as stated on the forums FAQ.
"1. How Long does it take for my account to get activated?
In most cases 1-2 days, Longer if it was done on the weekend and even longer if it was done by Snail Mail."
The ransom was paid 2 business days ago and now long time forum members are bulling me for asking questions about my profile access by saying they are a volunteer organization. Then they should not lock a user profile and demand payment for access.
They should alert new users to the fact they will take away the access to edit your profile if you do not pay yearly dues on a public forum. Anyone can have access to my profile, but I cannot edit it.
