As the site gets bigger and bigger, it's becoming more and more expensive to host it. The current AdSense based revenue isn't doing it, so we're looking at moving to a subscription-based model. We're currently working out the details of how it'll work, but basically non-subscribers would get access to a small number of forums, and limited read-only access to some content, and no access to the Premium content. Subscribers would have complete access to all forums, except for the Moderator forum. The rough cost we're looking for is about $5 a month, or $40 a year for a full-on Premium member, or $20 a year for a "read-only" Premium (for all of you lurkers out there). We're also looking at selling the rights to be a moderator for a week, that kind of thing. This will all be happening with a switch to the new forum software Chater's purchased. Yes, we're making the move away from PHPbb and to vBulletin. I know it's a big change, but we're hoping that it'll be OK with most of those people who enjoy it around here, and are willing to help out with keeping things going. If you could take a moment to answer the poll, and voice your thoughts, that'd be appreciated. Also, if you have any other thoughts on how to help pay for things, let us know.
