programme been planned ever since the beginning of the year, and our frequent forum visitors

discussed this move amongst ourselves and decided that this step is essential in developmening

 

the quality of our sites. With the premium membership underway, we will be able to provide

 

financial compensation to our workers, and in turn improve the network. </p>

 

<p>From the 1st of June, our visitors will be presented with the choice to purchase either a

 

Basic Plan, a Bonus Plan or a Platinum Plan.</p>

<p>So that everyone knows where the money is going, for the hard work that our staff has put into

 

the site over the years, the founders will receive $2000 and forums administrators and site staff

 

$1000. Our moderators will continue to fulfill their duties as a hobby, which cannot be unfairly rewarded

 

with financial gain.</p>

 

<p>We hope to see all of you enjoying the benefits of our new premium members system soon!</p>

Are the fees one time only fees? Or are they a yearly/monthly fee?

 

And the most important question: is this just for premium (meaning we can keep our accounts now if we so chose?)

Sorry to say but no, it's no fools joke. We've been running very close to the 2TB bandwidth limit we are confined to, and to be able to adapt for the San Andreas PC&Xbox rush we will have to start making adjustments. One of these adjustments will be porting the whole network to a bunch of new servers. This needs money which under the current running of things is not freely available.

 

Remember that we will use the funds to increase the quality of the services offered here at GTANet.

Nah, I'm well-known for spending money on useless stuff (tounge.gif), but $50 a month for this is ridiculous (but if we get access to the staff's hidden porn & warez forum, I could re-consider it...).

I think it's an april fools prank, but if it isn't give me a mailing address, and I'll send my cash in now.

(edit)

I'd seriously pay, but this makes me pretty sure it's a prank.

No Rules on Forum

We're not really supposed to talk about it yet as the details aren't worked. But forum accounts might also be used access to an upcoming online game which can't be mentioned....

$50? that's like £3, I'm in!

 

Unless it's a monthly thing, no way to that, I have 4 kids to feed! and a drug habit to quench!

 

EDIT0R:

OMG LEIKS i is 'inclusive' and 20 is the cost of bonus plan, I'm thinking NVB is this hinted at game, bonus gives you the game with initials NVB that was hinted at!

So what about the gangs that are already here?

 

I mean c'mon, too pricey, most of the kids here can hardly afford 20 bucks a month to create topics, let alone 50 to anyone who wants to run a gang...one time memberships would be easier to obtain, and more plentiful in earnings, and would pay for the new servers... bbq.gif

Existing gangs will stay, platinum members will be able to make their own ones though.

You'll become official and have a nice Diablos logo under your name and avatar. For $50 that's the best deal around. tounge.gif

All the money goes to the staff? Im not gonna pay the staff because they lock a few topics and ban a few members. They get paid for sitting on there asses and telling people what to and what not do do?
