Hello,

I have been a member of this site for a few years already, and I appreciated its artisanal, unpretentious, associative side. Also I considered the annual fee of 15 euros as a fair contribution.
The overplayed use of the term Prenium member with a participation increasing to 25 euros disturbs me.
I would not renew my contribution, preferring to increase my participation towards charitable associations.
I prefer sincerity, my disappointment is sincere .....
Kind regards,

Hello,

We are sorry that you feel this way. We announced and justified the price change a year in advance in order to be sincere and transparent about it, and to be able to exchange with the members in advance about it. You can find the discussion here:

https://www.accordion-scores.com/discussions/%5BIMPORTANT%5D+New+P-A+%21

Many discussions on the subject have been created since then, to which we have already responded.

You appreciate the "associative" side of the site, so do we. Especially the idea of "sharing", exchange and mutual aid that it evokes. It seems that this aspect of the association is not a priority for you. This is your first discussion and we can't find any sharing from you in 7 years of presence on the site.

Good evening,
I have been a member since the beginning, for the associative spirit, and I remain a member, mainly for this reason.
25 € for an access to a bank of soon 65 000 scores, requests which are very often satisfied in the day, exchanges on technique and music, etc. seem to me derisory (the least score today is more than 5 €).
I am in charge of a big cultural association: to make it work, we have employees, equipment, expenses (including a website which is not free!), etc. which explain a fee. And we have members: some with the spirit of association, who participate in the life of the association; the vast majority of users for whom everything is fine, and a handful who take advantage of the system, and for whom it is always too expensive and never good enough.
More than 7 years at P.A., no score submitted and no participation in the discussions: I don't put you in the first group.

Hello,
I got a good kick in the pants but I am convinced by the sincerity of your commitment.
With my apologies for the obviously unfortunate mood swing. I support you without fail and renew my subscription.

Good evening,
It was not a reaction to a message, but rather a slightly irritated one, which resembles what I regularly experience in the associative sector, and in particular in this period of various confinements.
Feedbacks like yours happen, but it's more rare!
For your information, my commitment to P.A. stops at paying my membership and answering requests (scores, discussions...) when I can...

Hello nousdeux,

We are happy to know that you are convinced by the sincerity of our commitment and that you renew your trust. No worries about the mood swing, it happens to everyone, especially in these troubled times we are currently living ... To have also rocked long in the associative world, as Cavag31 rightly pointed out, your beautiful reaction is rare, and we wanted to thank you.

Hello Cavag31,

First of all, thank you for your loyalty and your involvement on PA! You rightly underlined the balance between the price of the subscription and the scores to which it gives access.
The number of available scores had no impact on our thinking... To explain our approach, we do not consider that we "sell" scores, but rather that we offer you a "service". As mentioned in the previous discussions, the price change was indexed on this service and the work time required to run the site.

You would have done better to leave us our site, much more practical.
