I have no problem paying the fee for myself. I just think it's odd that
there has been no information of this change and  why it's needed. I can
understand if it's hard to get the money to run the conference but since
we haven't had a fee earlier I think it would have made a lot of sense
to inform the community as to why it was needed this year.

It should also be very clear (on the web and in the announcement) who is
to be considered a professional (to avoid these kind of discussions). 

In this case _no_ information regarding this and no discussion (with the
community) has lead up to the descision. Basically people just see it
when they click on Registration and no information on why this change
has been made.
