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.
