I think one message a day full stop for non gold users is extreme. You should add microtransactions if they want to send any more - after all, it works for mobile games right?

I think that when the staff upgrade to FT Gold, we should get blue and purple spinning dollar graphics in place of our pips. That way we get to exemplify our patricianhood +1.

Gold status is included in being a staff member.  Thus, it's considered salary, and you'll have to pay taxes on the money you're not paying for FT Gold.  I'm also too lazy busy to prepare the tax documents an employer is supposed to deal with, so you'll have to hire your own accountant to make sure it's all squared away.

Oooooooo, excellent idea!  That's brilliant, and we'll implement it ASAP.  So, if you're not a Gold member, you can post as much as you like for $0.99/post; that's less than a dollar a post!  What a deal!  :-)

Literally every amazing furry website acts like this. Have you ever seen furrydate or pounced or mate finder? I have found like three boyfriends on each site because of the pay for gold feature.

This is such a brilliant idea. Now I get to throw money at my favorite place on the internet! I can't wait to make my first payment, all I've gotta do is figure out how I can send in the money. I'll buy food later, FT gold is far more important!
Feel free to PM me or message me on Skype. I like to talk, and as long as I'm not busy I'm happy to chat anytime :lol-fox:
(But I'm kind of awkward so you'll have to message me first)

Wait, this is for real? Not April Fools Day or something?
Dear all,
I am no longer active on this site and would ask that none of you send friend requests/chat invites/etc. to whatever account of mine you may find. Thank you.

Of course it's real.  Capitalism is not something I joke about.

This is actually a good idea, however $29 may be a bit too much, even if it gives you staff privileges it may be a but of a bad idea because some may abuse that privilege, but however may I recommend an "Silver member" at less of the cost and less of the privileges. Pretty much like cut them in half. That way you get twice the income. The cheaper something is the more people will buy, you'd still have the gold membership along with the silver. Think of all that income flow Natasha, tis a wise marketing plan if I do say so myself.

I do not wish to participate. mainly because it's out of my budget. But I really don't care about all the upgrades. I'm happy with being a normal member. No offense Natasha. I just prefer not to praise the devil, so to speak. Meaning, I'm totally against capitalism and all it's evil. I'm not saying you guys are evil. I'm just saying capitalism is evil.

Really not interested in a premium service for FT. In fact I don't even want it to exist. Price is WAAAAAAYYYY too much, and the whole idea makes me worry that one day this place will get out of hand. By the way, most of us don't even have the money (we are teens).

Apologies if im being a bit butthurt on this whole thing but it really grinds my gears.  :sad-fox:
