    So they put the "paid-tier" system in place. No one knows what the "tiers" will include at this point, but he's still taking money. He (Eric I think) sold 100 "premium" memberships for 250 each (25k there smarty :fawk:). There are 3 different levels of memberships, from 35$ - 75$ a year. The thing that I just don't get is how they implimented this without knowing where they're going with it. They don't have anything showing what you get with each of these and why one would be better than the other. Plus the owners kind of a douche canoe, saying how he's doing a service to the community and what not but now he's asking for money :ugh2:

    Am I the only one who thinks this is a ripoff? It's not like the site has no advertising or anything either. They are also running an ancient version of VB there and the site is just not that great. It's a good place to go if you're bored, but I wouldn't pay for what they have to offer. I don't mind paying for OT cause of the porn :o

    I also think that searching has been disabled unless you have a membership. So fucking gay. Needless to say, I doubt I'll be going back there anytime soon. Not like I was there much anyways.

    Yeah, I'll agree that the paid membership system is a fucking joke. "Pre-selling" memberships for a site that has always been 3 years late doing any promised updates is sort of funny to me. Especially since all 100 "premium" subs were sold like the same day with no explanation as to what they were. I think alot of people just pissed their money down the drain. I'll keep going over there when I'm bored and just to see what's for sale local, but other than that they can kiss my ass.

    I haven't found a forum I like well enough to give money to yet. Most sites have volunteer moderators. Most forums are packed with ads. I'm in the ISP business, I don't think bandwidth is that costly. Half the guys that run forums are huge jerks. The content is user created. I've just never felt like the owner has earned my support for any of that. The only forum that I think I would consider it for at this point is the high road because there are no ads. I guess the users will decide if its worth it or if someone will create a new forum where the users will go to for free. People felt no love for the hardforums and don't seem to miss them on genmay.

    I just think it's been poorly thought out, if at all. You can tell that he just decided he wanted to get some money from the users, not that he wanted to improve the site for the people who made the site what it is.
