A third grade of membership?

There is probably no demand for it, but just thought I would throw it out there...

I have in the past been a trade member but found that it can be perceived as a sign that a member is not necessarily on here to contribute first and foremost.

For me I am here for the banter, the horizon broadening experience sharing and some excellent insight into that world that is RIBs. If I can help find the right bit of kit for a fellow member then great, if they choose to buy it from me then even better but the latter is the 3rd priority.

So, my question to the panel is: Is there room for a third grade of membership?

Perhaps a smidge more expensive than Trade,
Perhaps with join date or postings criteria,
Perhaps having to be nominated.

I nominate Malthouse to be our first new elite member and to pay more than the rest of us for the privilege

Surely nominated elite members, premier perhaps, should be paid for by whip round?

I think I suggested this a year ago when my subs came up.

There used to be several levels of paid membership, but I decided a while ago to make things simpler.

I am always open to suggestions though (especially when accompanied by a cash incentive) and will be very happy to create a special vanity category of your choosing. How much more than a Trade Membership would you like to pay? What title would you like?

Oh I'm sorry - did I ruffle your conscience earlier?

It would be cheaper for Tom to just buy you a Trade Membership!
