EDIT apparently what I have said here is confusing to some. I will start a new topic later rephrasing what I'm talking about... Stay tunned!!
Right now this is only a thought and nothing is set in stone yet. But I'm tossing around an idea of a "premium membership" for the forums. With this membership option you would get things like:
for 1 year:
-your name in gold
-Access to buy / sell forum (buying and selling ONLY allowed in this forum, only 1 open topic per person at a time, 6 items listed for sale at a time per topic, and it is NOT for people who have stores (you cannot link to your store etc there may be another option for you guys later down the road though)
-Open/close own threads all over forums (do NOT open a thread that has been closed by a mod for moderation reasons)
-150 MB (157286400 bytes) of upload space where you can upload pictures directly to topics rather than needing to use other hosting services.
-Can store 200 PMs (instead of 75)
Later (if this looks promising) I will open polls for how many of you would be interested in this and get a better idea of what you'd be willing to pay.
So for now are you possibly interested? About how much would you be willing to pay for it? And what other "options" or "features" would you want to have as a premium member?
If there are not many interested people, or the willing pay is not enough to offset the additional costs this would cost me to run (and help pay for the forums already active as that is the actual goal of this ) it likely will not happen.
