I just got a message when I opened an article asking me to be a member to read the article. 500kr/year? 10kr for 1st month and 50 for the rest of the year?

So, I went to aftonbladet.se, dn.se svt.se and then right clicked > Translate to English! More substantial news and read the same content for free.

Then I went to this thread. If not for this community, I will not even be accessing this website. I am just so bored on a Monday afternoon. tongue.gif

The Local has been dead for years. The news site is not news, just a lot of rubbish which is not even readable or interesting.

The only thing left is this page but for how much longer? Probably not much longer as there are no discussions any more, just help me help me

TheLocal is Sweden's Google...

I have noticed less TheLocal articles on Google News and when you try to read them you only get a little ways in before you are asked to join...for a fee...

What do you think would happen if the Forum was also a pay site???

The forum was much more active years ago and has slowly declined. I guess the same questions/answers are repeated, so some of the longer term forum users aren't as frequent as before. If they made it a pay forum, it would die on its knees quickly. Most forums are free and the ones that aren't are related to information that gives real business advice or how to make money etc.

For me the forum was the biggest reason to go the local when I came to Sweden. Strange that they don't seem to have replicated that on other local websites, although I haven't looked for a while.
