At last count,there is 11,457 members,active and not active. Just think,if everyone gave just $1.00,not a penny more,it might keep things afloat a while longer. Take the burden off your host,who generously is footing the bill for everything.

Perhaps a nominal fee I would not mind, but the forum is the only part that I use.  I suspect(I have no real idea) that a lot of forums find enough revenue in advertising to make ends meet but like most businesses, it takes some hustle to get the advertisers on board.  Often sales is not really the most pleasant part of running a web site, but then that is what it takes to do business on the internet.  I imagine that if the advertising became too much to bare, I might pay something, but frankly, I wouldn't pay the cost of a subscription.

"paying" will create more problems than benefits.

 

for example, if I get a warning point for a controversial post, can I send in money to pay off the fine?

 

or if I am banned due to reaching my quota of warning points, do I get the unused portion of my forum payment returned?

Maybe the whole system can be run on fines from infractions!  That's how they run EZPASS!

Amen!   I don't have any warning points on any board!   But some folks..  :rolleyes:

if you don't tick someone off from time to time, you're not trying hard enough.

 

think about it.

I myself would not pay extra, I subscribe to the magazine.  I don't mind the ads, easy enough to ignore, just like TV.  I was building models before I connected to the internet and will build regardless of whether or not I can see this or any other forum.

 

I don't want to sound mean or unsympathetic, I really like this forum.  But I've already got way too many things clamoring for my disposable income!

I don't know that I would pay, but I think if there was a "premium membership" option, it should be included with a magazine subscription and offered as a paid option to those that don't/can't subscribe.

 

I use ad block plus and don't see any of the ad's, so they don't bother me what so ever. ;)

Would premium membership include an MCM watch?  LOL.   I would have no problem with a fee based forum.

What does ads in the mag have to do with ads on the forum?
