    I never had any concern about seeing fullsize screenshots.. I didn't even know that was a thing until seeing your link.

    Anyway, I appreciate that Robin needed to monetise somehow due to the cost of the site, but that's not a reason a subscription model would make sense.. To suggest as much is a little naive.

    I personally won't subscribe because I can find UI patterns many other ways, without paying a subscription model.. I use Dribbble a lot for this kind of thing, and I pay a subscription to dribbble - because the subscription gives me adequate value (https://dribbble.com/pro).

    I'm not trying to shit on Pttrns, I just think that I may not be alone in finding the new direction hard to swallow. I hope it works out for them.

      Yes, I totally agree with you. I feel like subscription model doesn't really fit to pttrns but unfortunately ads seems to not generate enough money
