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.
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
