There are actually quite a few popular boards out there with paid membership. I fail to see why anyone would leave over it, I doubt that would occur here.

I agree with you - perhaps a poll would give you some indication?

If you cant view the forum without paying I think a lot of people would leave, I would, sorry to say.

Paying for a forum isnt a big deal to me as long as you can still view the forums without paying. I belong to one of the largest paid forums on the internet and the reason I paid was because it is a one time fee of $10.

As long as there was both Paid and Free with Ads it would work, but if MF became Paid Only, Most the the people needing quick help would leave and go somewhere where they can ask their question for free.


I am a member of a forums that does both Paid and Ad's. I was going to join the pay part of the forums but $$$ is very tight right now. PC forum by the way.

So it MF went all pay, I would have to leave as I really at this point in time don't have the $$$. I am here to help people.

I don't think anyone ever said that it would be pay or no forum. The paid version would be ad free and possibly some other perks.

Nobody said it would be a pay only forum, I was just talking about if it were.

Sure. I just wanted to make it very clear that is not happening. Sometimes people will read into things or take them the wrong way. I just wanted to be sure that people are very aware that there is no intention of ever making this a pay-only forum.

I don't mind the ads. You can't do anything without seeing them, so they're like white noise to me any more, unless it's something I would actually have an interest in. I go to a forum where there's ads exactly like what will happen here and I personally don't mind it.

You clearly don't have a good grasp on our membership demographics then. But thanks for the feedback.

Uh, MY MOM WOULD PAY, then i'd do chores! lol
Nothing wrong with being young.

Anyway, sorry that i'm just jumping in on this now.
I would pay depending on the numbers we are talking about.
It would be great to have no ads, especially for us with dial up.
It's like a facebook page with no applications...it's fast and to the point.
I'd be glad to pay a small fee to be a part of this ROCKIN' place filled with ROCKIN' people.
Makes me all warm and fuzzy inside......

It appears that the ads are here now. For me it slows down the loading of a page.
