The only way we can survive and let me say this before I ask or suggest anything. First, thank you for registering that means the world to me. I take all your opinions, thoughts and suggestions seriously and unlike other forums where you are a number, you are family,(dysfunctional) but awesome. If you can donate great, it can be a dollar but if you can't manage it that's not a problem as you are still valued here.
We plan on being here a long time and the best thing you can do is suggest this forum to friends as it helps us get new members. If you're interested in donating pm me and thanks for being a PWF loyalist!!!
And you can edit posts/threads for about the initial 30 minutes, it’s if you try to hours or days later. At least from what I remember we gave Legends. But as of right now, there really isn’t a big enough install base for a user upgrade to be warranted. Like 2K James said, add a way to donate for right now. If people enjoy the site and have a flexible income, they’ll want to see it thrive and throw a few dollars to help. Tracking on a user upgrade at this stage really wouldn’t bode well.
As far as incentives go for when a user upgrade is implemented, groups wouldn’t really work rn like Punk said. The private section sure, changing username ofc, maybe have a chat box that is only available for them, just stuff that can actually draw someone to upgrade that ain’t your standard edit posts/threads.
This will have to wait, but I can see a user upgrade getting the editing functions, a chat box, a section, and userbar. I will actively look for some new things to add, but for the time being - if anyone wants to help out - there will be a donation box set-up.
