I sure hope it is Snowolf and Killclimz, but I doubt it. So, why would anyone upgrade if our members somehow don't benefit?

They make money on Ads. This site costs fuck-all to run......

who is giving back here?

I'm curious as well. I just upgraded as the lifetime membership was 10 dollars, and I figured why not give a lil back. I spend so much time on here wasting my days away...

Vertical sports owns this forum and a bunch more. And Snowwolf is pretty much dead to this site after he nuked every thread he ever posted in, on his way off the forum.

Also didn't know Snowolf disappeared, but did notice I didn't see his posts anymore.

Sites like this cost more than you would think to run. The advertising revenue is better here than a lot of smaller forums I'm sure, but I've known friends who were paying $200 a month out of pocket easily to keep a forum up and running.

Good question. I have never given this much thought.

Maybe that's why after 3 years I still have the basic membership. BA and a few other prolific posters also just have a basic membership. The VIP lounge section of this forum can't possibly that good, can it?

Makes you wonder who's benefitting here?

He decided to leave, though I don't agree with how he did it, it is what it is. I wish him the best with his current endeavors.

The money goes towards keeping this forum running. It ain't a ton and the site itself isn't making anyone rich either. But it is sustaining itself which is nice. After being on a few forums that have since disappeared, it is nice having one that has a certain amount of stability and back end support.

Didn't you ban him? The story sounds like a retarded power trip to me.

Super sad douchebags, that shit never changes. you can spot them a mile away.

Someone sent me a PM about an uncle I never knew I had. Turns out he was a Prince and left me a lot of money.. I just had to donate to the site in order to get the money. Still waiting on it though... any day now.

The VIP lounge doesn't do much, mostly because we don't have enough people in there. If you get a lifetime membership, 1) you no longer see ads, and 2) we'll change your title if you want.

That's not entirely true... We get to see what pout considers porn...

I would like to be known as "SuperMember". (There's a double entendre!)
Can you change my title to that?

Actually, what is my current title?:icon_scratch:

"-lifetime member-"
Oh.
You mean I can change that?

Heck, that alone is worth the price of the lifetime membership!:thumbsup:

Donutz, I"ll get back to you on a new title.
(Maybe something other than SuperMember...:laugh:)

Edit: Whoops, I see you already changed it.
Do I get a second chance now that I know what I'm changing?
