I just don't like the idea of making things cost money that have been free all these years. For example if I had to pay money all of a sudden for an avatar size like mine it would just drive me away. Thats why I said earlier about older members getting certain perks newer members may not.

I never said anything about stripping people of shit they've already had for free.

And most of what I named is things that don't currently exist as features.

I wasn't speaking to you directly. Just thinking out loud.

In line with what davo is saying, anything I planned to incorporate into a paid membership level would be for features and abilities that did not previously exist. While there are some things that could qualify within the VBulletin forum software, my plans for these kinds of tiered memberships fall more in line with the rebuilding of the site.

Not shooting down anyone's ideas, just letting you guys know that that is when we'd probably see something like that.

Edit: And for clarification, the site has been, and will always be free to use. We're just discussing extra features that might not be tenable to provide freely to all members, but could work with financial support.

Yeah, I made this comment before you even posted any of that. I'm just throwing out ideas because with this new management i think its equally important to make THF as accessible to new members as well as keeping us older oriented members still happy. I know we will all be able to find a greatness in the middle of all that.

Jake, sounds good.


If anyone has any raw footage/project files from old classic videos, it might be cool to start posting up remastered versions rendered out at a higher resolution, higher bitrate, etc, and post them to a THF YouTube channel etc.

Thanks for clarifying.

Although in that same light, being Administrator wouldn't mean that I would go on a power trip. If anything, I have extensive knowledge of coding that could potentially help in installing vBulletin addons/extensions or helping to fix problems as they arise.

And all moderators / administrators here would receive the same Member Group at the backup forum.
