Andrew, the amount of existing old members decreases with times (for natural reasons). Every project needs new members every month, every year. So, new basic members becomes the "fresh blood" for Dolphin.

I understood the new rules about existing members.

But, will new members have rights to post at Dolphin's forum (about problems, new features, modules) with no payment ($10)? Sometimes newcomers make very useful improvements of the engine.

Yes, Basic will be able to post in forums, comment on products they purchased, contact Vendors and contact members that contacted them first. Also after they've accumulated some "trust points" they will be allowed to comment in blogs and contact anyone. We want Basic Members to be fully capable, but limit them at first to prevent spam and rates gaming in Market.
Now I don't see any problem for Dolphin's future because of new Rules.
