they posted the winners of the April 2014 postcard contest.

After almost four months... Ridiculous.
I won't renew my membership.

I don't know if I'm going to renew my membership. On one hand I do like the renewal shirt, but on the other they never have anything going on and I rarely win any of their contests.

I renewed because of the shirt - it looks nice and all, but it itches on one part. First I thought I had a hair that constantly keeps on poking into the t-shirt or maybe a bite of some animal, but no - it's the shirt. I had to put it away.

The Community/Forum is locked for me (?). It says I typed in the wrong log in - not true. Anyways, I would just be here and not there, so I don't care at all about it.

I never even enjoyed these stupid (yep, stupid - that's my opinion) talk show videos.

 

Also, since I never win anything (yeah, I know - 40,000 people or so registered), but especially since they don't really care about anything and the whole fan club atmosphere is gone. I regret that I renewed and I will definitely won't renew next year. Definitely not worth it.

Unfortunately it's not me :lol:

 

The Jeff Matika Show is fun, but in my opinion it shouldn't be Idiot Nation exclusive. Now it's the only interesting thing on IN site, but still it's not worth paying 20$.

Well turns out I won one of the postcard packs. My subscription ran out months ago, so I had no idea I had won anything when I got a random letter direct from Warner Music. Opened it up and was greeted with an amazing Green Day envelope. Managed to open it without causing damage to find the postcards inside. If it wasn't for the Idiot Club labels on the back of the GD envelope which lead me here I would of had no idea why I got them. I took some photos of the envelope which was pretty hard to get the light right so there is a bit of glare.

Weren't those the renewal gift a couple of years ago? I remember getting them and being mad because they weren't a shirt :lol: but it worked out in the end because I got one of the cards signed by Mike Dirnt and I was happy because no one else I saw in the line was having him sign that postcard.

 

Anyway, I never go on there but I continually renew my membership because I like the shirt, I did win a contest once, and it was nice to be able to do presales!

Did they do any more Jeff Matika show episodes? My membership expired after the one with Tre and I decided not to renew. I never won anything there, except once they picked my question for Mike in Jeff Matika show. That was cool and at least kind of justified price of membership but I don't see a point in renewing now, obviously nothing is gonna happen anytime soon.

I don't know how many were after Tre but they've done quite a few episodes, Jason White was the most recent. Jeff tweeted that there'd be part 2 of it posted "soon", but that was months ago. They're probably saving it up so they can post it after they next make a push to get more people to join with some contests etc. Seems to be a pattern that they do that and then stop bothering to do anything until it's time to persuade people to join/renew again, lol.

I would renew if they did the JMS more frequently (or other fun videos with the band), I really enjoyed those! But it seems they're not doing much lately.

If you joined for the first time you wont get a shirt, its only when you renew your membership that you get a shirt.

I wouldn't bother at the moment (unless there's a shirt they're offering for renewing that you want). Whenever they do anything cool you hear about it from here or gd.com so best to wait until then so you'll get something you want for your money.

I have the new T-Shirt and it's of good quality and pretty long, which makes it suitable for cycling. Had a cleaner stop me at the mall last week just to tell me how awesome it is, ask me where I got it and how she can get one for her daughter. She thought it was a general cynical statement about just any country, and that's an interesting concept.

So there's new Idiot Nation shirt:
10868130_10152933841424521_5655379818939

I think it's cool, but this fanclub seems to be dead anyway. I won't pay 28$ just for a t-shirt.

New members do not get the shirt. I was on the fence about whether or not I wanted to renew this year, but that shirt IS cool and very exclusive, so I probably will.

 

Fuck Idiot Nation for getting me to pay to stay on a basically inactive site for a 5th year :lol:
