April Fools Update

Thanks everyone for a great April Fools Day! It was really quite touching to see how many people were willing to pay for a membership to help support CAG. I received at least 20 emails with rsvp's for Platinum level memberships. Despite the interest from the CAGs, I do not have any plans, nor any desire to ask the community for money. I'd much rather have you support the site (and me) by continuing to shop through the CAG affiliate links.

Looking foward, I think everyone is going to be completely blown away when we launch CAG 2.0 in the next few months. I'm really looking forward to seeing the community's reaction.

Thanks for your continued support!

Here's a great IM conversation I had with a CAG regarding the PIMP program.
I'm posting it with his permission. He's the guy who made this awesome Halo 2 video.

In an effort to create a more tightly-knit community and to cover escalating server costs, I'm excited to announce our new Premium Insider Membership Program. I believe this move will help eliminate some of our less-desirable members and bring the community closer together. The program will kick-off next week.

Accessing the site will still be free for all, but we will now have different tiers of membership. Each tier will have accompanying benefits as outlined below.

Guest (Free)
  • Can read the site, create one topic, one post, and one private message per day
  • Private message box limited to 10 messages
Silver ($10/year)
  • Can create unlimited topics, posts, and private messages
  • Private message box limit raised to 250
Gold ($50/year)
  • Can create unlimited topics, posts, and private messages
  • Private message box limit raised to 500
  • Can upload and attach images to posts
  • Can have avatar and signature
  • Site is advertisement free
Platinum ($100/year)
All Gold benefits, plus:
  • Private message box limit raised to 1000
  • Private deals and coupons from your favorite retailers
  • Custom avatar drawn by WhipSmartBanky
  • Immunity from infractions/bannings (some limitations apply)
  • Be a Forum Guide in the forum of your choosing (optional)
  • Can download CAGcast 2 days early
  • Access to private forum for Platinum members only
  • CheapyD autographed photo
  • 1 day tour of Tokyo w/CheapyD (airfare and accommodations not included, scheduling conflicts may occur)
Platinum memberships will be limited, so please contact us to reserve your spot.
No deposit is required at this time.

D,

When you and I discussed this months ago, you assured me that Platinum Membership would be $500/year. I just double-checked the e-mails, and you definitely said $500. I have this IN WRITING. Now I'm seeing $100. This had better be a typo. A contract is still a contract. You will definitely be hearing from my lawyers.

A number of years back GameTZ actually did become a subscriber-only site for like 2 years. Quite a disaster, it was.

Cheapy, how can I get a life size cut out of you. I also want a talking Wombat one with a cartoon caption that says he's here for the children.
