The amount a premium member pays a month is quite small which could be completely recovered under the 75% rate with only a small number of views required. But like all investments it is a gamble of course.
    Too complicated for me.

    My "payment" is the 25% of MY fee which the site would get!

    I'm not going to pay up front.

    Yes that is a really good idea, people pay you for the joy of experiencing your art and the ones who gave you a platform to perform on get to wet their beak a little; just enough so they don't die of thirst. I can imagine it being something like a music artist who has managed to grab their record company by the balls!

    You volunteer to introduce some?

    I think we should charge shitty members not to be banned for being shitty. Given the demographics of the membership, this would raise cash more quickly.
    Also. Win-win.

    The most cash will be raised by both charging the shitty members and charging to view the premium members, since the lists will be almost identical.

    Ah, but even shitty members have their value. I mean, think of the mocking potential alone...

    Shitty members include those who post nothing but emoticons and lame spoiler-tagged "gags"?

    Good call.

    A friend of mine would post that every time someone would write "alot." I think about him whenever I see that, so I was pretending to be him for a minute. Plus, I can't spil, so I enjoy the irony.
