i think the only way to go on this is the free/premium member thing...i know that quite a few of us here are under 18 and therefore don't get access to ma credit card. If you made it so that we'd have to pay then you would have a lot less people and therefore not need the money (if you see what i mean!). i think that paying users should get extras such as:
email,
forums that other people don't get.
etc...etc...etc

Please, feel free to do so.

I can see by your post count that you're not here much anyway. So go away and stop trying to convince those of us who really enjoy this place that we should give it up because you don't like it.

Sheesh.

I'd be willing

...to pay annually. I'd also be willing to sponsor someone who may not be able too. Has anyone brought up sponsoring someone who may not be able to afford it? Just curious.

There will be the option to sponsor someone, either by PayPal or by snail mail.

Sound familiar? I just figured it out today- very clever, Spiral Staircase!

And on the topic of this thread (), there's really nothing that I can say that hasn't already been said. I think the 3rd option is the way to go. I'm definitely willing to pay $10/year, and I think the sponsorship option is great too.

Look, I didn't read through all of the posts, so I'm sure this is said already, but with a "premium" service, all that happens is some people pay for the service for everyone else.

Everyone can read, but you must pay to post. Also, have an annual fee, not monthly.

There. I said it. Here, I will go a step further and say that I generally lose $10 within the first hour at a bar.

I don't care if you think I'm an idiot or I don't understand the plights of the world or whatever you want to think.

And I DEFINITELY don't think $10 is a lot of money for Interference.

U2Saves the World....I will be the second asshole to say what I think--that I whole-heartedly agree with you.

no







First I never would have guessed football for the ball because it doesn't look like an American football or a soccer ball. I have no idea what coca-cola, football and radio are supposed to mean. Was it something flashed by on the ZOO TV screen I missed?

Well excuuuuuuuuuse me! Ok, so avatar creation is not my specialty.
All your questions can be answered here, and all your answers can be questioned here.

(btw...I couldn't get a picture of a seaside town to fit into my avatar.)

It's from the end of "Promenade" off of Unforgettable Fire.
