    Keep up the good work, it is truly appreciated.

    Great idea, thanks, it has been done. Platinum members now have access to that area.

    Steve, its your site, there are costs, if the $40 is an expression of support - It's only a carton of beer and I'd reckon most blokes here would not have a problem and shout you one every 6 months for the privelege of participation any way, and you've kept the door open for those who want participate who don't like a drink so no harm donw.

    If some elitism develops, there are enough hard nuts on this site to squash it. The wankers will rise to the top and they can be skimmed off!

    I'm going to keep to putting in 40 bucks. If everyone shouted him beer I've no doubt the quality of the site would rapidly descend!!!!

    $40....geez, the amount of information and genuine help I've gathered from this site, the people I've met and the things I've been asked to participate in is well worth $40 I'd say.
    I'm signing up now

    A more than happy little grey man.

    Hmm, I love that Steve is so keen to keep the members happy, but I just don't want to see the site split by premium and non-premium members. I'd personally keep the premium members only content to a minimum, just so everyone who can't afford it doesn't feel left out.

    I am disappointed that we get very little for simply moving a thread to the right board because someone is too lazy to read the board headings. Infractions and warnings although necessary, don't pay much either.

    The big money though is in banning someone. A spammer is well worth my being here. They pay reasonably well. Don't get a real lot for new and bronze members but it's ok. Silver and gold are pretty good but its the platinum blokes where the big bucks are. They pay for my holidays.

    However, still waiting for the boss to put a price on the head of one of these premiums. I reckon that's where the money is going to be in the future.

    Actually it's all said in jest, and no the Moderators don't get paid, and this post is like a lot here on Ausfish - full of crap but helps to get the post count up.

    Re: Ausfish Premium Membership option

    This all looks like a great idea.

    If the pages will load faster, then Im in. Im usually on ausfish while Im at work, and so time is money. My question is how much faster will the pages load without SOME advertising?

    Perhaps a 7 day free trial will improve the takeup rate. Is there anyway this can be done?

    cheers

    PS - well done on paypal too. Nice to see us keeping up with the latest technology

    I have spent more on things I have never used, $40 for something I use every day is a bargin!

    Re: Ausfish Premium Membership option

    Well I am in a very small minority with concerns about this so that noise you just heard was me pulling my head in. I dont think I am poor..but retired and "OK" ..probably wouldnt spend the $40 each 6 months but hey...! that may be no loss to the board.
    Whatever happens it is a great forum, and Steve is to be congratulated for a superb job.

    now come on mod 5, that wasnt really a good value answer, you do need to earn your money. Nest time a more graphical answer, pics and all that stuff.
    By the way Steve, I'm in and in the long term think it will have a positive outcome.
