Tantalizing.

I'm going to guess pay to have an avatar.

Fuck that!

slop101 10-23-08 04:06 PM

If the money was going to someone like Geoff, I'd consider it. But since it'll go to some giant, faceless, corporate conglomerate instead, I say fuck that indeed.

Groucho 10-23-08 04:07 PM

IB may not have a Face, but it does have a Dick!

lordwow 10-23-08 04:25 PM

Pass!

mkdevo 10-23-08 04:36 PM

so you have to pay to get that uncomfortable icon next to your name? no thanks.

The Bus 10-23-08 04:41 PM

mkdevo, it's totally worth it.<img src="http://forum.dvdtalk.com/images/premium-members.jpg"> It lets other members know who's really "in" nowadays. <img src="http://forum.dvdtalk.com/images/premium-members.jpg">

Hint: It's you!<img src="http://forum.dvdtalk.com/images/premium-members.jpg">

I was a big proponent of an ad-free paid membership for a number of years, but it was more about supporting the site (and Geoff) back then than anything. Not sure how I'll feel about it today. I guess I'll wait to see what "features" the membership brings along with it.

fumanstan 10-23-08 04:56 PM

I might be interested depending on the price and the added features. I don't mind supporting DVDTalk, even via Internet Brands. Still better then XCritic :)

dick_grayson 10-23-08 05:05 PM

what "added features" could possibly make it worth paying for?

Th0r S1mpson 10-23-08 05:32 PM

If you can simply upload pictures on the forum instead of hosting yourself, it would be a big plus. And no ads.

Maybe a "post a message so anyone but ___________ can view" ;)

I can't view Thor's post -- what did he say?

He said that if you could read his post, he would front your premium membership.

Better luck next time.

The Cow 10-23-08 07:49 PM

When Geoff was running it, I would have paid without giving it a second thought.

I would not pay to support this site under IB. :shrug:

Gizmo 10-23-08 08:59 PM

Like others have said, if this was Geoff id be all over this.

....But I'm a sucker and I want that shiny DVD icon next to my name really bad. Where do I hand my credit over?

Numanoid 10-23-08 10:09 PM

I'll start the bidding at $2.50 a year.

Gizmo 10-23-08 10:30 PM

I'll raise to $3

wishbone 10-23-08 10:46 PM

$3.01

Cardsfan111 10-23-08 10:48 PM

And to quote the legendary Bob Barker: "I'm sorry, but you've all overbid!"

Rockmjd23 10-23-08 11:03 PM

Only if I can have the Frontier(s) ad permanently displayed!

mndtrp 10-23-08 11:11 PM

If it would keep my posts from being marked read before I have a chance to actually read them, I would probably donate.

Th0r S1mpson 10-23-08 11:34 PM

<img src="http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/ll64/yesyesyes111/f.gif" align=right>As long as I can turn off the avatars people buy I'll be okay with it.
