Earlier there was a topic about the Student Jobs being underpaid and some were vouching for people with student jobs to get Free VIP membership as some sort of IRL payment. While I agree with WoP, which stated that that would mean a lot of people got VIP for free and that would not be possible, I do think that statement should be paired with another change on WoP.
After two weeks of absence, members who have not logged in get an e-mail telling them they got free VIP to get them back to the site. I think that if it is impossible to reward hard working people, spending hours on this site and helping it grow and be a safe place for people who love Harry Potter, it should be impossible to hand out free VIP to people who have not logged in for 14 days.
Why would you give VIP to people who didn't log in, but wouldn't give it to people who spend hours of their day making this site the amazing place it is today? That doesn't only sound unfair, but in my opinion even devalues the work people with student jobs do on this site.
My option would be to lose the free VIP to lure people back to the site but replace it with something less valuable, or shorten the free VIP period from one week to two days.
