New people will not pay.




I suspect many of the seasoned member will not pay either......

Not to mention how often is a site written off because it charges for content ?...the usual suspects come in with the old..."If the information is not free it must be a scam".....


There's a big difference between content a site owner and their employee's produce, and content that is crowd sourced from the viewers.

The line between insanity and genius is razor thin. I hope things improve for you. Just don't trip the wire.

This is for an ad-free experience. Why do so many people seem to think that it's payment for site access?

When considering whether to donate to a privately owned discussion forum, I'd cast my mind back to

"You're all being stupid".

Why ask when you can add a closed forum feature and allow for certain taboo discussions available for paid members and BAM you still generate add revenue while also offering a step up add free experience.

Simple.

In this members only forum section you also release custom content to offer an incentive. At this point you have an actual network instead of a website.

Seems to me like you guys need help generating your own creative content and launching a digital platform for your audience.

What the point in waiting?

Don't forget modern advertising is not about offering a product it's about generating content. People are looking for alternatives.

I also completely fail to see how it would create a "two tiered system"


It was suggested that a dedicated forum for subscribers could be created by SO
This denies access to non subscribers
As such ... The pyramid structure of ATS would build upon

Lurkers at the bottom, (unable to post)
Then members the next tier up (able to post)
Paying members (Privilege of the suggested dedicated forum and AD free)
Mods
Super Mods
With the owners running the show

I think the idea of an AD free site for those wishing to pay is fine
The idea of the paying members dedicated forum goes against the idea of equality

"All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others" ... is my only concern due to the suggestion by SO

But only if you pay
What things can't we discuss now that we would be able to discuss in we paid

Not actually relevant, in this case.

Don't play around you know perfectly well there are some deep conversations that a few of us are capable of having and should be having.

You know...

Stuff that only people who pay can discuss. Sort of like WATS, but with money.
