I thought this became the case at some point. However, I notice that some old games still require a BYONDscape subscription to get benefits and don't grant those benefits to BYOND members. That makes it pretty darn hard to get those benefits given that BYONDscape doesn't exist.

Was this supposed to be the case or is there a bug somewhere that's glitching this up? Are BYOND members supposed to be the equivalent of BYONDscape members as far as subscription benefits are concerned?
People still offering benefits for BYONDScape were encouraged to update their stuff to work for BYOND Members instead. If they didn't do it there's not really much to be done since BYONDscape no longer exists.
