The whole idea is to give those who help sponsor the site some cool benefits and features to make the site a bit more enjoyable. In return we can pay for hosting costs, forum upgrades etc.
So right now over at Maine we have kept the price low at $30 for an entire year.
Some of the features we offer at the Maine site for those who subscribe are:
- You will receive a special Subscribed Member Title
- You can create your own Custom Title
- You will have access to The Cabin - hidden forum for Subscribed Members only
- You have the ability to delete your own posts
- You have the ability to open/close your own threads
- You will have unlimited private messaging (No quota)
- You can upload images into your signature (1 image max - 500x100)
- You can upload animated GIF images into your signature (1 image max - 500x100)
- Can use the tags in signature
- Allow HTML in signature
- Can add events to the calendar
- You will receive a special Subscribed Member logo in your profile if you choose. (OPTIONAL)
Looks like this:
More features are going to come soon like free image hosting and more.
So your input here would be good.
