 If GTAF became a "you have to pay to access" kind of thing, you will never see me again.

So the only reason you want the forums to be pay-to-access is to keep the children away?

The whole debate about GTAF costing money to get rid of children is ridiculous. Now days, kids can get money just as easily if not more easily than a grown person thanks to their mommies credit cards.

 

On the other hand, I'd happily pay for GTAF Premium if my money was being used on making a better GTAF service for Premium Members. As it would be an optional, bonus paid service, it would be fine.

Literally the worst idea ever, making users pay to visit the forums would just scare people away, even those with money wouldn't bother with it. The forum would slowly die off.

 

One thing I think the forum should have though, is an option to donate. I'd gladly donate to the forum if it meant improving the forums overall.

This forum is already so broken. I'll surely pay the administrators to keep using this wonderful experience.

When you think about it why would I pay to have my brain scrambled?

Unless the forums provide free after care help for those indelibly scarred.

This isn't Something Awful's forums, where they charge you for access, for the exact same reasons as outlined in the original post in this thread.  Effectively, there is already a message board for you.  You can go there and stay in the cool club.

 

Moreover, paying for access would mean that you are now granting your users rights, as it is no longer a free service.  And you don't want to be giving rights to people.  Just look at the mess that caused.

This is so true. People now already make demands, but we kindly remind them that it's a free service. Can you imagine what it will be like when it's a paid service?

I remember a year or so ago I was at a model train convention and some guy got thrown out of the building by security guys for touching the layouts repeatedly. While they were dragging him out, he kept yelling out I PAID TO ENTER I SHOULD BE ABLE TO TOUCH THE TRAINS

 

I never really got what they meant by "demands" though, like demanding the forums look a certain way or merely suggesting it? Either way, I'm still against making the forums pay-to-enter. Hell, it'd be a nightmare if it was pay-to-view.

I'd pay a monthly or yearly fee to access the forums to help with the running costs in a heartbeat. But I don't think that's necessary at the moment.

What's up with y'all? First pay to enter GTA Online and now pay to enter GTA Forums? You obviously have no kids...

 

"Ooooh, I have a job and you don't because you're either a kid or a stupid bitch oooooooh I'm better than you". Well, you can shove your job and your spare backs riiiiiiiight up your tiny little troll anus. If anyone enjoys this website, why limiting it to a few? And if you don't like someone, block him.

Way to take a suggestion that has a 99.9% chance of not happening anytime soon.

Definitely not a continuous fee :barf:  :barf: , but I'd pay a one-time entry fee if it wasn't too bad. Maybe they could even have people pay a few fifty bucks to get that special member tag they want so much. :lol:

 

I'm unemployed, gotta save that money for more important things.
