    It seems that some of the adverts that are running are slowing down the site for some people, Ive contacted the advert people and they are working on the their server at 3pm EST so around 8PM tomorrow which will hopefully fix the problem.

    BUT that got me thinking a little bit and i was wondering would anyone be interested in a premium membership to the forum ? It means that you would be moved into a group with a colour ( like the VIPS, Mod's etc have now ) which would be totally advert free , other perks like larger signature space and things like that ? Obviously if lots of people wanted to do that it would take a large chunk of advert revenue away from the forum so i was thinking something like 2 per month to be a premium member which i think is a reasonable price ?

    At the moment its just an idea and to see if people would want to do it, if enough people were interested then i would put it into action. All money collected would go towards upgrades and monthly hosting costs.

    Thoughts ?

    I'll be happy to pay it.

    Would it mean that I could never be banned @RiverWire ?

    sounds good guv, BUT dont you think it might make you lose some of the people that advertise? at the mo they know that x amount of people see their adverts but if you do the premium site then the people that pay to advertise wont know how many people they are going out to which MIGHT make them think twice before parting with money

    haha, No it would not mean immunity, Forum rules would still stand to everyone like it does at the moment.

    Ire, im prepared to auction off bannings i joke i joke.

    Bradders, No mate currently the forum uses an ad network of which the ads are served to us automatically regardless of how many people see it, plus the fact that 70% of the advert impressions on this site are actually made by guests not members, not necessarily our fans but all the trolls for other places, other fans etc all looking around the forum and actually paying for this place to run........nearly

    Then I won't be interested.

    Only kidding, still would. I do spend a lot of time on this forum so viewing this site without the adverts (dating sites?????) would be grand.

    However, I wouldn't pay 2 a month to read @thfcire 's crap - will there be a super ignore option for premium users ?

    haha, super ignore option .................

    Contrast it would be setup via paypal subscriptions so at any point a member could cancel their monthly subscription and the forum would detect that stopped payment and demote them back to a normal member once their 2 month had run out etc .

    So if someone was to be banned permanently they could cancel the sub at any time them selves. No need to contact me about it.

    How about three tiers of premium membership, bronze, silver and gold?
