    You currently have 12. I believe that is the limit, but try adding more and I suspect you will get a message telling you what the limit is for a non-subscriber.

    Interesting so they've pretty much doubled it for what you were allowed originally.

    It depends on what you mean by "originally".

    Originally (for me) everyone was a non-sub because the site was totally free. I think we started without active game limits, but as membership quickly increased, the workload on the server started being a problem so limits were introduced, followed by voluntary financial contributions to upgrade to bigger servers, followed by forums, tournaments, clans, with the need for more server upgrades and then finally, subscriptions.

    The maximum game limit has varied over the years but I am thinking the first non-sub games limit may have been ten or twelve.

    Correct you are and you were among one of the original contributors to the site and pretty much donations were given at that time right?

    Now you don't pay anything yearly if I understand it correctly?

    EDIT: I just noticed your a few days away from 20 years on the site!

    Oh I didn’t know that, then I am a subscriber.

    I am not a subscriber at this time, but I did make optional contributions in the early days, and also did subscribe back when the subscription option was first introduced.

    But since I am not a subscriber at this time I do see the advertisements, I cannot join a clan, cannot create a club, cannot enter tournaments, etc.

    But as I am also an "original pawnstar", which the white star icon represents (contributor before subscriptions were introduced), I believe I can play unlimited games. I have not tested that since I do not enjoy playing more than five or six games at one time.

    Thank you for clearing that up, I was not correct in my assumption. I thought you could do all those things for free because of your contributions in the beginning of the site.

    I have played some new people back years ago and I remember one person asking me if I could move quick because he only had 6 games he could play at one time. I told him sure just to make it unrated as the rating would affect my rating which in turn affects my Clan Rating which can cause conflicts and have.

    In a few months you'll be here for 20 years!!! I can't believe I am here for 15 already. I know you've seen many changes over the years, more than most of us here. There are only a handful of you left now I believe of the Original members.

    Yes, I have actually seen ALL of the changes. I am the 16th person to open an account here, and my twenty year RHP anniversary will come up in just a few more days.

    My first game was the 18th game played here. I also may be the first foreign member (that is, not from England), but I'm not sure on that one. Russ probably knows.

    Je remarque que vous ne jouez pas à beaucoup de jeux. Êtes-vous ici plus pour socialiser?

    I notice you don't play a lot of games. Are you here more for socializing? For the English folks on the site.
