On home page - a first?

Or have i just not been visiting the homepage enough? :)

Is this a subtle way of introducing subscription only, over time....?

I am more convinced now than I have ever been to donate (BTW, when did the "donate" change to "subscribe"?).

But im skint - I run too many free sites and no for profit sites - so Im not going to! :) Sorry.

But I thought I would make a few queries about it anyway just incase I start to get paid more or something (lol):

>Are we eventually going to see a subscription only WW?

>Will there be any additional benefits to subscribing?

>Are we going to see the "juicy threads" in the subscribers only forum - and not in the main forum? I only ask because the dynamic URL thread was one of the few i have *tried* to click through from the homepage.

And just a few general points that came to mind:

>Does anyone forsee there eventually being a sort of "them and us" syndrome between subs and non subs?

>Will there be a noteable difference in the quality of posts between the forums?

I thought that this might be a good thread for WW market research or something...I dunno!

I just felt the need to sir my thoughts! :)

Hello JOAT,

>Will there be any additional benefits to subscribing?

>Are we going to see the "juicy threads" in the subscribers only forum - and not in the main forum? I only ask because the dynamic URL thread was one of the few i have *tried* to click through from the homepage.

Yup, though I don't think any of the subscribers will stop contributing to the public forums.

And, as I've told Brett, I'd drop a $150 on a class in a heart beat if I thought I'd get one tenth of what I've learned here. So it stood to reason that I subscribe and help keep my most important peer resource available and growing. But that's me ;)

As soon as I can stop putting my croceries on credit, I'll be subscribing, too. Unfortunately, there's a disconnect between my valuation of this site and my ability to pay. With luck, though, I'll be releasing a product next month that might start to change that.

I've truly been *meaning* to donate for some time.... just haven't gotten around to it. Now I get inspired and go to donate and I see we've gone from what I recall was a suggested $75 donation to a $149 membership. Bummer for us slow-pokes :(.
