Throw your gold accounts off a bridge Natasha. they wish they were dead anyways. Mainly because your selling them to total jerks.

Sorry Natasha. My apologies. Maybe Gold members could have gold colored paw prints as well.

Nah.  We want to make more money, not less.

Ah yes, but see, with the gold and silver members you have twice the income. Think of it as the gold trial, they pay for silver and become addicted to it but want more privileges so then they will pay for gold instead. So in other words you get money from said person twice.

This is beatiful. You have the greatest ideas Natasha!
Adding to my microtransactions idea, how about you restrict character usage as well! After all, it would make people seriously think about what they want to post if they were charged say... 0.50$ per extra character used (counting spaces of course)?

Could we also make it cost money if posts are one sentence long or less? I'm sure I'm not the only one tired of useless short posts! [RP board]

Good morning, everyone!  As you know, the site's been needing a new host for awhile, but web hosting is extremely expensive, and I just can't swing it anymore.  Donation drives haven't brought in much over the years, so after discussing it with the staff, we've decided to switch the site to a paid membership model.

Right now, Gold members get a few special perks, like the ability to move their own posts, unlimited PMs, and the ability to change other users' custom titles.  Plus, there's a super-secret Gold Member board, only for gold account holders.  However, as of May 1, we're going to follow DeviantArt's example, and the following features will only be available for Gold members:

-Ability to create polls
-Unrestricted poll voting (normal users will only be able to vote in one poll per day)
-Unlimited PMs (normal users will only be able to send 1 PM per day)
-Unlimited posts and thread creation (normal users will only be able to post once an hour)
-Ability to insert images into posts (normal users will lose this ability)
-Unrestricted avatar options, including the ability to upload an avatar (normal users will only be able to choose an avatar from a folder of Justin Bieber images, because my research indicates all teenagers universally adore him)

Don't worry, though, an FT Gold account is available for the low price of $29.99/month!  That's less than the cost of a steak dinner for two!  What a deal!  :-D

We're still setting up the payment system, but I've given a trial membership to a few randomly-selected members.  We even have a special rank image for Gold members:



I have a few trial accounts left to give out, so if you're interested, let me know and I'll choose someone at random :-)

SERIOUSLY THOUGH



Cause I might just runaway to some messier forum and have my mind go haywire

And the ablity to change someones elses costom title?! this may or may not be a April Fools joke, but i hope it is! This is worst than what i was going to do to prank you all!

Woah Woah Woah... What about seating? I'd like one of those private box seats with the little mini fridge and bar inside it.
