Premium features to Un-Premium

I'm considering un-Premium'ing either 1 or more current Premium Member features.

This poll is just to give me an idea... it's not a 'vote' to actually decide the outcome.

Please choose 1 feature which you think should be made un-Premium.

If you care to also reply and explain why you chose what you did, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Joel

I was trying to think of it this way... if I discontinue my premium membership, what one feature would I like to retain. Probably 'viewing member profiles'. You get to know if it's a guy or a girl and more about them!

i personally wouldn't care too much about search - i'd like private messaging or viewing profiles

if i search site:foum.interference.com on google it's almost as good (though not the real thing)

Search...with private messaging a close second.

I like being able to view profiles, but lots of people don't really fill theirs out much.

I'd like to be able to PM people.

Even with mods better than email cause I don't check mine much.

To be fair though...the search function is such a huge plus of becoming premium. I think that some people who already paid for a premium membership may feel a bit screwed if that feature becomes available at no cost. If you are gonna make a feature or two available...I think that maybe it should actually be something as simple as viewing who is online or creating polls.

Can't I see who is online at the bottom of the homepage or is there something extra to that with Premium?

With the "Who's Online" feature, you can see which forum or thread a person is viewing...or if they are reading a PM or something.

I can see the forums, though not the threads.

I'd rather have PMing and profile viewing.

Keep search premium to make it fair.

I agree...which would make that one an easy one to make non-premium.

Like I said, my first inclination was the search...but I don't think that's fair to all of the people who already paid for their premium memberships.

Is this now a duplicate post that I should've avoided to make?
