Non-Members should be able to make clubs and promote to SA

Nobody makes fun of non premium until they start whining and griping about what they can and cannot do when they already have more features than you get by paying on most other sites

They changed it due to the virus I believe.

I believe they changed it for other reasons too.
An avalanche of issues ...
Chess.com is generous - allowing free accounts in the first place.

@Martin_Stahl >>> 

1) Currently chess.com does not allow non-premium members to create clubs? 

2) May non - premium members be coordinators, admins, and super-admins?

There were recent changes.
Non payers (non-premium) could always be coordinators or admins - but not superadmins.
But recently - chess.com changed it so that nonpayers could create clubs - and therefore be superadmins -
as when creating clubs - one is therefore automatically a superadmin (SA).
'Club owners'  are always superadmins.
But apparently - nonapyers able to create clubs is being rolled back to 'no can do'.
And I've also heard that nonpayers able to be promoted to SA also to be rolled back.
All verified?  Too soon to tell.
Admins able to promote - was rolled back to - 'no not able to do so'.  And good thing.

The SA thing is kinda weird in my opinion

As of a few days ago non premium members can no longer create new clubs but for now (at least) non premium members can still be promoted to SA. They can still be promoted to admin or coordinator.
