Default Paid VIP subscription

Websites cost money. We all know this. I propose that we implement a paid subscription service. Yes, we have a VIP lounge. I propose we change it to the veteran's lounge, or something similar. Let VIPs be members who pay a small price monthly, or yearly. VIPs get special stuff like:

  • Special font for username
  • Carforum.net email account (not unlike OCN)
  • Automatic Overclocked account (and vise-versa. Overclocked members get CFN VIP)
  • Pics in Sig
  • Icon like on OCN
  • Able to disable ads
  • A special skin for the site
Other ideas? post em!



$5 a month, $30 a year, $100 life. I think that sounds fair.



And members should see this as a option for those who want to support the site. But you get cool stuff, too. All proceeds should stay on the CFN site ONLY, not to be used on other affiliated sites.


Thoughts?

Sure, except pics in sig. Or at least very restricted size. Those are so ****ing annoying.

Been on the table a long time. Redesign should be coming soon (god I hope) and then we'll have more ability for such things.

Im not opposed to paying for vip. Hell ive been here since the dawn of CFN.

Though i do think like enderx said, if we allow sig photos, they should be very restrictive on sizing. And no .GIF's allowed in sig. That stuff gets soooo annoying.
