Excellent means I don't have to worry about emptying messages out every week, however I expect those sutdents will still max out there limits on the Gold Accounts.

You tight lot!

Probably in danger of making myself unpopular here, but I do notice those who seem to use the site most and therefore I assume gain most benefit or pleasure from it seem to pay least or nothing.

If you want to see what I mean, go to the membership list and sort it by posts - very interesting result!

The site is giving everyone a huge amount of value - I wouldnt have thought it would kill anyone to pay a tenner for the pleasure - if you work at the cost per message post, its nothing!

Either that or maybe to have the ability to make more than say 100 MESSAGE posts in any one year then you pay 10

I suspect if I now recieve a lot of hate mail its because I've hit a raw nerve - I am sure I can take it!

I do think there should be one exception - Codders - I don't know him, but he really does seem to be into some sort of self abuse and apparently offers a lot of fun to the members and it would therefore seem cruel to punish him any further by charging him for our pleasure.

I don't agree with charging people by the post as its the posts them selves that make a Forum what it is - without them RIBnet would not be the fountain of all boating knowledge that it is.

I am perfectly happy to contribute but charging per post would only discourage people from parting with their knowledge and experience.

Here's a suggestion that seems to work on another Forum I use www.xda-developers.com They use a system of donations and for every 10 you donate you get a little gold * next to your name when you post.

I don't actually know how much revenue they generate from this system but they have managed to keep the site going with out resorting to banner adds for years now...
