If i wanted to use a website to be forced to log into to see some content, i would use inkbunny.
Not sure why e6 would want to remove one of its greatest features to view all content while not logged in. a lot of people use private browsers on their phone.
The Defualt blacklist is good. Anyone that removes it from their list and troll / attack posts. Just be an instant ban as they know how to use blacklists. but let people be allowed to view all content without an account. otherwise another website might have to be the new go to option for a lot of users, as the devs simply want to remove users freedom for needing to log in to enjoy all content.
Sure lots of these changes will be better in the long run. but please don't remove our choices on what we are allowed to view while not logged in.
I think some of the changes are alright, it does give a generic vibe to the UI but thats my opinion.
I've always recommended e6 to others due to that flexablity, Most of us users don't want to find another website to get this option back. The devs will lose a chunk of users due to this.
The way i put it. you're treating adults like children needing to lock stuff behind a wall so they do what you want etc log in. this is an 18+ site where people are responsible for what they do and what punishments they get if they break the rules.
Some people like change; Some do not. but people "Hate" being forced restrictions on what they can or cant do.
we're on the internet, a place to escape our issues from life. Something a lot of people tend to forget in their development. so when they try to resolve issues in the masses. they forget too give both sides the option; and force site restrictions on to all users.
Apologies for the extra noise, But i really hope that this site doesn't become worse due to developers poor choices in forced restrictions to the users of the site.
Thanks for taking your time to read. Wish you all good days to come.
