Is the forum worth a reasonable monthly or yearly fee?

I'm only thinking outloud here... for now... and would really like to get everyone's opinion/feelings on this:


In the case that donations may not work out to sustain the monthly costs and expansion of the forums...

Would you be willing to spend $3/month OR $24/year (or something similar) on this place?


Most people spend more than $3 at Starbucks (or similar), or on a pack of cigs, each day.



All comments and ideas are welcome, and invited.

Thanks,

Joel

Of course.

Just for the visual pleasure of the smilies alone.

Normal tough call

I would pay, because I don't think I could possibly live without my interference family, but at the same time... if it turned into a pay service, I would fear it would change dramatically, because I think we would lose a lot of dear friends... Just a thought.

Anyway, I love interference! Just try and get rid of me.... It's worth $2-3.

There are people like me with an income so tiny I couldn't possibly justify spending it on something like this place. I'd sure miss it though.

this place is worth more than that

The fact that anyone would vote no, especially someone who's been here for 2 years really surprises me.

I mean you could find 3 bucks a month on the ground for gods sakes.

Normal

Would I? Yes. Can I? I can't don't know. I don't have much money, plus I'd have to convince my parents I DO care about this.

Anyway..

I do agree that it would bring the membership down a *lot*, and probably not be as fun or high-traffic anymore.

Elvis, just out of curiousity, what webhost do you use? Is there any chance another host could be cheaper?

I would. Three bucks a month is nothing, and I'm a college kid.

Also: what about a cool title (you know, for under the username) for supporting members? Something like:

War Child/The Fly/whatever
*Interference Angel*
or
*Supporting Member*
or
*whatever*

Like Public Television, you know, you get a cool toy.

People who have been here for two years voting NO. *I voted Yes. I would hate to see Interference lose members over this.

This server is not hosted on just some webhosting company... it is hosted on a friends server which is co-located, all we have to do is pay for bandwidth.
