    Dan's mentioned offering a paid membership plan that comes with special features. What are some special features you'd be willing to pay for?

    I've been a member of a lot of boards, and some have had paid features. Most of the things we get for free here cost at other boards (custom avatars, custom titles, etc.).

    A couple of ideas I thought people might be interested in:

    1. Special user rank that basically just makes the user's name a different color than the basic black, just so they stand out (like how mods are orange and admins are red). Just a way to show the community that you contributed to the board.

    2. Special private forum where contributors can post and make fun of the cheap people who didn't pay.

    3. Not sure if this is possible, but maybe subscribers could have their reputation restrictions increased - meaning they could give more reputation in 24 hours than is currently allowed.

    Hmmm...that's all I can come up with. What else would you be willing to pay for?

    The first one just seems like bragging.. I've probably donated half a dozen times to the original owner of this site, and I liked the fact that my PM box went from the original 200 or whatever it was to 1000 msgs. That was more useful than the knowledge that someone donated..

    The second option (forum) actually existed, and nobody used it.

    The third is actually a decent idea, I think...

    i'd pay to prohibit chrissie/kirk from posting on gun control and global warming.

    i'd pay more if he got tased in the attempt to do so.
