Of course this isn't final, but from discussions we've had the past year and the recent discussions I'm coming up with this proposal for approval. Timeline: Nothing will change as is until registered base reaches 3,000 unique users. At that time the following subscription plan will be implemented. Unregistered Users (Free): View GFD and Tech Q&A only. Registered Users (Free): View and Post all sections. Subscribed Users ($7.95 per 6 months, possible other options like lifetime): Additionally allow other functionality like Search, Avatars, Profile, Private Forum, email address, and sponsor discounts. This list would change, but the idea is to return the subscription value and then some. Moderators (Free): Same as Subscribed. FerrariChat.com Tech/Historian Consultants (Free): Same as Subscribed, with additional dedicated Consultant page that includes commercial information and index of articles and other info the Consultant wants. --- I think this would be a happy medium for everyone. No one is being blocked from participating in the community for financial reasons. New users can try before they buy. The subscribed users get additional features and value for their small contribution. The Tech/Historian value adding users will have no costs and just more reasons to participate and help the community. This doesn't address filtering out trolls from paying, but maybe more moderators and the additional controls this software offers will help that. How could you not love this?
