10 bucks a month should do the trick

furthermore, yuo should charge for extras like posting pics, say 50c per pic

and if someone requests a name change, that's worth 2 bucks easy. And for those pain in the asses who request name changes every other week yuo can apply a sliding scale. So 2 bucks for the first request, then 4 bucks for the second, 8 for the third and so on and so forth

there, that should weed out all the BUMS that post on here

- Car Key Boi :cool:

p.s.
when yuo implement this scheme, yuo can offset my membership fees against my fee for this sound financial advice. So make out a check to Troll Inc for $680 ($800 minus 12 months membership @ 10 bucks)

that is all

Neither. He's just not funny, even though he tries sooo hard.

Da Boi is funny enough of the time to come out ahead (only in a 5 set TB, though :p) but there's a germ of "troof" there too. This board is in a way like a public utility, so some modest fee would be justified, IMO. And indeed re. pics, they take up alot of bandwidth and have caused problems B4, like with that website that kept posting about copyright infringement, blah. But I offered to engage in a more specific dialogue on funding mechanisms via the e-mail us form, and didn't get a reply, so that's Poe and Amanda's choice. (I will continue to report "spam posts", BTW, meaning where someone joins just to sell something and isn't in any way "part of the community" here otherwise).

I may not be Poe, but I think I can say without being wrong that this suggestion won’t be retained even though he will be thankful to CKB for his help. ;)

oh, i don't know, i nearly died laughing especially when he said write the check to troll, Inc. And btw, if Poe implemented this, you guys wouldn't see me around here...

there's no reason for yuo to leave, i'll take care of everything

love ya loads

- Car Key Boi :kiss: :hearts:

stupid?? i don't see in what way my advice is stupid. There are over 20,000 wtaworld members. Okay, most of them are BUMS who can't afford 10 bucks a month. So lets say Poe impliments this scheme and we lose over 90% of the membership. That still leaves 2,000 members or so. So that's 2,000 members paying 10 bucks a month (plus extras) and there's 12 months in a year. Do the math!

hell, it would be stupid NOT to impliment my idea

hey, yuo remember that thread yuo posted about my forum going all screwy and posts getting lost? well, that was one of my buddies hacking the shit out of it coz he was pissed i neglected to tell him about that hot Biopure tech stock (i forgive him thou, coz that's the kind of guy i am) My forum was building up nicely, in a year or two it might have been as popular as this one. And yuo can bet yuor ass i would've introduced paid subscription

What's slightly ironic here is that just like a match between many pairs of players generates two extremes, this potentially constructive thread has, too. (And yes, I realize it was started tongue-in-cheek with deliberately unreal #'s, but I did try to steer it into a constructive look @ how this "virtual public utility" might charge some modest amount to operate). So all anyone else posts is either modified parody on one side, or "hell no, I won't pay" on the other. BTW, re. Da Boi calling those with that trophy "attention whores", I not only didn't request mine, but didn't have an inkling it would EXIST when I contributed. So if Da Boi really did send a small piece of his market winnings but asked not to have that trophy displayed, "The PC Fucktard Salutes Yuo". (If not, I suggest Poe bill yuo $1,000 per post where yuo've bragged about a winning trade). :p

I have done the Maths, But I would rather take peoples perception rather then extra money in someones pockets, really how many people on this board are going to pay $10 a month to talk on this site, and even if that did what numbers would be suggested? Probably not much, Even in perception I would suggest none. You have to look outside the square before thinking numbers, because they will eventually get you in the end.

And where did you get this 90% will leave, only leaving 10%, thats your own probability, It's not how maths or economics work.

*JR*
Sep 30th, 2003, 01:43 PM
Rothes, it was a troll by Da Boi, like many others. And I only suggested that the CONCEPT of ppl paying SOMETHING (probably on a sliding scale honor-system) should be discussed. In fact, Poe and Amanda ought to conduct a poll IMO re. what ppl would be willing to pay to ditch the bookie ad, etc.

the telephone company is a public utility, right? and they don't operate on donations, right? users have to pay a flat rate for internet connection, and then extras for things like additional lines, faster connections blah, right? and 10 bucks a month is modest, it's 25% the going rate for a decent porn site


BTW, re. Da Boi calling those with that trophy "attention whores", I not only didn't request mine, but didn't have an inkling it would EXIST when I contributed.

i thought the "look at me i'm so worthy" trophy was optional :)
