Re: Premium Member Priviledges Suggestion Thread

I've been thinking of a few things, brainstorming if you will, about how the site could entice more members to become Premium Members, and I just wanted to make a thread where we could put some stuff to the admins about what we would pay for. I use this site alot, and I want to support it by becoming Premium, but is a bigger avatar and graphic in my signature enough to click the "Pay" button? Here is what I've thought of to make becoming a Premium Member even more prestigious, enticing more and more to sign up

1. Premium Smilies

Pretty self explanatory, smilies exclusively for Premium Members. Here are some I think are must-haves.

pinkprincess|:

plop|:

champion|:

amaze|:

postwhore|: also marko|: could work

databaseerror|:

jankovic|:

2. The Premium Lounge

As far as I know, there is no subforum solely for Premium members, but their definately should be. There should be a subforum just for Premium Members, where some sort of exclusive things could be available, except I don't know what these things could be. LOL. But they should have their own subforum.

3. Players visiting the site

Well, once you've implemented my first 2 suggestions which, let's face it, is inevitable, you lot at TennisForum.com will have quite a bank balance on your hands. So how's about luring a few Top 100 or 200 players to visit the site, say once a month, a new player, where they could have their own chat thread to talk to users for an hour or so. Whether you pay them a bit, or they come out of the kindness of their heart, as I know some users on this site know some players and could maybe convince them to be involved in one of these live Q&A sessions.

Catch is, that you must be a Premium member to talk to these players, as these chat's will take place in The Premium Lounge.

----------------------------------


That's all I have for right now. But yeah, this thread is for any and all suggestions regarding Premium priviledges so speak up, and hopefully the admins can give a bit of feedback

Re: Premium Member Priviledges Suggestion Thread

Sadly, a google search of "smiley" and "slut" comes up with very little

Re: Premium Member Priviledges Suggestion Thread

With smilies mentioned above you cant really talk about prestige
Don`t you guys already have a bunch of whore-slut-tati-troll-whatever threads where you can discuss your daily issues followed on this board

No ads at the top of the screen would be nice (if this is not the case already)

Re: Premium Member Priviledges Suggestion Thread

We could jost copy and paste the adress of the smileys, you know?

And who will pay the Players for chatting here? The Premium-Members?

Na LI - Francesca SCHIAVONE - Roberta VINCI
Tamira's backhand, Roby's slice, Galina's dropshot

Re: Premium Member Priviledges Suggestion Thread

Well they should make the Premium Lounge so that even us peasant users can see it, we just can't enter it, like the chat threads thing does if you aren't logged in. Because we don't know what we're missing out on now.

And no, the Premium Members wouldn't pay, the site would.. from all the money from all the Premium Users they've acquired. I'm sure any player ranked outside the Top 100 would consider a few hundred bucks to have a chat on here for an hour or so.

What do admins think?

Re: Premium Member Priviledges Suggestion Thread

Thanks Tim

The admins don't care though

You'd become a Premium Avocado if these priviledges were all implemented, wouldn't you?

I'd pay double to become a Premium member if your suggestions were accepted
This proves my point


We need plop and amaze. But a better amaze, I couldn't find a really good one.
