I was at another forum (JF) and got a PM from the administrators. Their new membership fees are ridiculous. $30 for one year, $150 for lifetime. What the........:brickwall:
yup. I paid once, $25, a couple years ago and spent quite a bit of time on that forum. I noticed it changing after a while. People becoming a-holes, attitudes, and lack of assistance (GO SEARCH! blah blah). Totally the opposite of this forum. I don't hang out there much anymore, just when i need some info that this or the "other" forum doesn't contain.what? that rediculous
For sure! On one of the forums I once ran for my local truck club (When I was a slammed S-10 owner) we had it set up so if a person enjoyed the forum and wanted to help out, they could "Donate" to the forum to help out with hosting and related stuff...and if you've got a good user base, and run a decent forum, people will donate...I didn't want to deal with a paid membership type of set up because it can turn into more hassle than it's really worth.Ya membership as a "Cash Cow" is getting to be more and more common..
