#12218725 ($6.99) Gamer's Club Unlocked Membership(+2 Year extension to curren...

I'll restate what I said earlier. 

 

Require membership, unpaid, to be able to click on threads. 

 

32 user(s) are reading this topic

17 members, 14 guests, 1 anonymous users

 

Guests would be forced to become members, some of which would contribute, thus adding to the community. Boom.  

The site used to be like this.  Cheapy changed it because it made no sense and did nothing to benefit the site.  He makes more money having guests able to click on threads, which helps the site.

 

Every guest who clicks and affiliate link contributes to this site.

Instead of charging they should just close and block every account with a join date later than 2006

 

Would make this site MUCH better

Make it 2003.  

 

This is a dumb idea.

 

New members have just as much to contribute as old. 

 

And more members means more ability to find more deals in the wild, which helps everyone.

Thanks for agreeing, but to the latter point, if we paid $5-25(a fair price range) each not only would people be less likely to leak as we all know if something's free people will share but if you charge only a buck they'll be sheisty, CAG membership fees could also be like set at rates to deter lurkers who only take our deals and never post themselves , like $5 for vets who've been here since PS3 days or 500 posts, $10 for 250 post or been here a year, and $20-25 for any new members, n finally there can be a free public area for non paying members to share those deals but they don't get our pro advice

This way we protect our deals, and we only keep or invite those willing to also participate in deal hunting sharing and posting

I really really think this should be discussed and voted on

 

This is absurd.  You do not want to deter new dealhunters just to protect supposed "vets".  It's crazy talk, and something I'm glad Cheapy has no interest in doing.

 

I've been here since 2006, longer than just about anyone, and your view would destroy the community, not help it.

I hope you really push it this year Cheapy.  It seems like this fell to the wayside last year and that was a shame.  Donation incoming!

Debating if I want to go give this ago.  Terrified how much my girl might spend on this stuff if I bring that first dose into the house though.
