    I like the intro to their forums: http://forums.somethingawful.com /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    [/ QUOTE ]when they went pay only, they kept thier original memberbase (didn't exclude anyone) with the rules of `if you screw up, piss off a moderator, break the rules, become extremely obnoxious, leach bandwidth, or post crap that wastes bandwidth, you'd be banned, and get to cough up another $10.

    of course, since Somethingawful is the `pinnacle of maturity' they've also got games you can play with eachother... such as change your personal custom title for $10, or change someone elses custom title for $10 ( anything goes) as well as purchasing banner ads to be displayed at the top of the pages for $10 a month. the biggest difference between here and there, is they have some 15,000 active users, and a good deal of them participate in the banner ads, custom title shenanigans, and getting banned.

    before anyone hops on my back about being a member in the nets most immature site, but not here, I got in before it went pay, and havn't been banned... been a member there since 1998, went to pay in about 2001. perhaps you can offer up bannerads for sale here too? ( not just advertisers, but random people would advert thier site, or even thier favorite threads, or just use it as a chance to flash a giant "@#$%^ YOU!" to whomever... )

    hope you can bail the site out,

    -Rich

    Yeah, I love looking at sites that think outside the box and can come up with a way to make it work, every site has a different audience and what works for one site most likely will not work for another.
    I like their idea of a 10. one time fee but not sure that would work here, seems like we would still have the "Hey you should be a Member" thing that we have now.

    I'd pay $10, $25 is just too much for me.

    [/ QUOTE ]sounds like someone got `Goatsed' this morning... /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif they despise bandwidth leeching, and are swift to deal with remote linking to images. that site is the owners entire livelyhood, so he generaly spends 16 hours a day policing the servers for remote linking, hack attacks, and etc.
