OM REGULARS: Would You Pay Extra for a Members Only Forum?
Welcome! ... to all the newcomers here on OrangeMane.com, the #1 Fan Forum site in the NFL. "The OM" is setting new records - almost 50 new members a day, 200 a week, and on Thursday August 3, Twelve-Hundred Users visited the site.
But for OM veterans, there is something of a downside to all this: the site is slower, the threads are more scattered, and finding your buds in them is not as easy as before. Things will prolly get much more fragmented when they actually start playing football! So ..... I'd like to re-start an old thread topic:
"WOULD YOU PAY EXTRA FOR A MEMBER'S ONLY FORUM and/or SECTION?"I'm not sure how it would work or what Taco John would need in subscriber fees ($25 a season? $50?), but I'd like to get something in place before the season starts. Maybe limit premium members based on fees only, or maybe on length of time as an OM member, or minimum # of posts, or a combination of these. Maybe certain veterans, say 3yr/5000 post, could get the first year free to ensure a quality user base.
IMO, it would be just a separate Forum page (like "Off Topics" or "College Football" now), so paying members could go back and forth.
Thoughts .... ?
