    I asked for the childish replies, but I just don't see much of an advantage to going Premium...

    Is the $20 really worth it?

    It's always been an annual fee. http://www.ridemonkey.com/shop/subscribe/

    It's $1.60/month, you don't see external ads, don't get popups, you get more PM space, and your photo gallery space is doubled. This will carry across to all the monkey sites as they're developed.

    I'm working on a rebate offer for Premiums to get some cash back on TShirt orders, but no Stinky, I'm not going to include a free tshirt when the tshirts cost more than the memberships :rolleyes:

    Make it $21 then, so it's a wash. Ya got people all over the country advertising for you. Membership skyrockets, and so do ad rates.

    It's not quite that simple. There will be a tshirt rebate for premiums, but I can't give them away (yes, this will be applied retroactively to any premiums who have already ordered, or are planning on ordering).

    There's logic to what you're saying, but there are other factors at play.

    When I joined I just paypaled from a thread. I don't remember recurring, not that it matters. I'm just saying.

    I tried to track down that thread, but it doesn't seem to be on here anymore. When I made that page I just copied and pasted from the thread. Might have just missed it.

    There's no logic to "throwing a bone" to the people that support the site?!

    I said there IS logic to it. However, sites like this cost a lot of time and money to run, and a great way for members support the site is by buying tshirts, and premium memberships. When the day comes that we're making a ton off advertising then I can be more liberal with that stuff, but until then...

    Damned if I read the terms before - I don't think this was up when I payed.

    Cost is $20 per year. (billed automatically each year - cancel any time)
