    You never know, I might make this an option. Like a trial membership or something.

    Like I said before - I think it's a great idea.
    DAMNED generous on the server space/bandwidth and permissions (cgi/php/mysql...)
    A premie member could run a (small) vB board from their space... ?? note to self: we should start on the T.O.S.
    Sendmail ability too?
    A few server security concerns - but all-in-all a great idea :D

    ALSO:
    To those of you who are saying "NO!" in the polls...
    To my knowledge, we are NOT removing any regular member features... A non-premium member will still have all the bells and whistles they enjoy now...
    We're not taking anything away from you (regular members)!

    We are just ADDING more features for paying Premium Members.

    Just added a couple more features. The image in sig system was setup today. It's very nice! Also, the new warning system was setup. Premium members will be able to use both of these.

    Anyone else have comments. What they'd like to see added/inproved?

    It is not that I do not want to help. I just want to know when I can stop parading around with this undeserving title. I feel like I should be sent a bill, or something.

    Nice ideas! But I dont think people are gonna use it. Why? Because there are so much companies who offer it! But who knowes... you can always try! If your good you will reach the top!

    I'm not trying to compete with hosting companys. We just don't need 60gb of space! Might as well put it to good use! As well as offer premium members something other then just features.

    This position is not as spectacular as you might think, yet. If a quick switch is possible, John, would you mind continuing your guinea-pigging on Nookie? (Nookie 3:16® ??)

    I think it's a great idea. Unfortunately, since I'm a teacher who just bought a brand new car, I will be broke for the next 7 years or until I find me a nice rich sugar daddy to support me. Any offers? ;)
