From the Premium membership topic http://www.gtaforums...l=donating&st=0
|The donate thing wouldnt work, a few would, for a few times etc, wouldnt last.|
I think donating would work, though i don't like the idea of premium membership considering that we could end up with elitists and features on the forum should be available to all. However i would be happy to donate, perhaps only 5 - 10 bucks every so often but considering the size of the forum, having a bunch of people donating $1, $5, $10 could put a nice dent in operating costs, it would just help out, and i would like nothing more than to help out.
Provided you have a few rules.
- Donating members do not get ANY extra privileges, it is purely to assist in site cost because you love this forum.
- You are not to discuss amounts donated, you may mention that you have donated, but you can't go around saying "I donated heaps to the forum and what have you done?" Which rolls onto the next rule.
-Trying to belittle others for not donating/amounts donated is not tolerated, again you should be donating to help, not for bragging rights.
I would love the opportunity to help the forum like i mentioned, and this would be a great way to do it, perhaps we will see it in V2, in that case keep the idea in mind.
