Re: Interactive stories dont seem to work for free users
You might find these posts informative about the interactives situation:

"Re: Server Volume error"   by The StoryMonster
due to the advent and proliferation of ad blockers, we've had to significantly limit the amount of server resources available to free accounts as they produce a whole lot of load on the servers with no revenue to pay for it.

"Re: Re: Re: Server Volume error"   by The StoryMonster
According to our server logs, some 11,000 people a day are logging in and using interactives for free despite the limited server available. At present, we're serving over 600,000 free interactive pages per day.
Other folks are certainly deciding they're ok to support the site with $0.06 per day to use our services.

"Re: Re: Site is becoming unusable"   by The StoryMonster
as it stands, we have no plans to increase the spending on our free member resources. To be sure, though, we're still providing a lot of free resources.


The heavy server volume error means not as many free members/guests can view interactives at the same time as want to. Thus, any solution to the interactives access problem lies with the users, not with the site. The members who use the service will need to decide whether it's worth competing with the other free members and guests for limited resources, or whether it's worth paying for a membership to get better access, or whether they'd rather do something else with their time.





Hope that helps.
