    part two (PLEASE READ!) : Just a thought.. But would members be interested in.....

    Hello all. It seems some of you are confused as to what I'm thinking as far as the premium membership idea. First, please understand- THESE FORUMS ARE FREE AND THEY WILL BE FREE AS THEY ARE NOW TO ANYONE NOT WANTING TO BE A PREMIUM MEMBER. What I'm offering is for a fee (to be discussed) you would get some additional features, like:
    -your name in gold (other color?)
    -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)
    -Close own threads all over forums (A mod will still need to open your threads, this may change though)
    -150 MB (157286400 bytes) of upload space where you can upload pictures directly to topics rather than needing to use other hosting services. (I've made it so pictures uploaded using this feature show up as thumbs. Right now you can post 10 of these in a post. Since I got thumbs working.. That may be increased)
    -Can store 200 PMs (instead of 75)

    Is that more clear? Plain and simple: You like it the way it is, GREAT! it stays like that! Want to help support the forums and get the features listed above at the same time? GREAT! how much would you be willing to spend a year on that (so far it's looking like $20 from the other topic). So, those of you that said "yes" in the other topic, still interested knowing that? And those of you that said "No" Still thinking no? If it is still not clear please let me know. I really don't know how else to say it.

    ill try...
    -- the forums will be free. the extra features will be an extra fee
    -- if you dont want to be a premium member. you dont have to be. therefore. you dont have to pay for ANYTHING unless you want the new features that Andrew has so graciously given us the chance to get.
    -- with the uploads and thumbs for the premium members. check my last 3 posts. 2 in the utric forum and 1 in the Sarracenia forum. youll see how amazing this new feature(for the premium members) is.

    i hope that summed some of it... i hope andrew dosent ninja post or i dont ninja post....

    It can’t be stated any clearer, Andrew. I thought the first topic was clear enough…
    I did read the previous topic but did not post, so here I go in this one. I think $20-25 is a very fair price range, and is what I would be willing to pay for the premium member features. I am particularly interested in the name color change(LOL), the buy/sell forum, and the upload space.

    If this does become available someday count me in!

    Contrary to how it may have appeared before I *do* think it's a good idea to devise a way for members to become more involved. I also didn't notice until now that you currently cannot buy or sell on these forums (only trade) and that is indeed a valuable feature to have included for premium members.

    I would like to ask, though, if you had considered what I mentioned before about possibly tying this in with another organization. I'd be willing to spend another $5 on top of the premium price if I I knew that the money was going to some type of conservancy.

    Example: "Upgrade to a premium membership for $25 per year and you get all these cool extra features. PLUS, $5 of your money will go toward *insert reputable CP conservancy*!"

    What do you think?

    This sounds like a great idea!

    $20 seems a bit steep, but then, I'm a cheapskate.

    We'll just have to see.

    I still say yes. Although, something has to be done about the colour of those premium names- I don't see "blinding members" under the perks list. LOL 20 bucks is more than fair, though! I'm particularly giddy to be able to open and close my threads. Oh, and once instated, will there we a way that a member can toggle the gold name on/off?
