Well since theres no news post for it I'm hammering down this talking post.

I'm part of a big forum that has a paid members section. It works really well too, maybe a bit clique-y at times (referring to the regular forums as out there) but it has a really friendly atmosphere. It's $17 a year or something (a friend paid for mine ) and it also removes adverts, you can view secret bits of news that doesn't get posted yet. They even set up little games to play amongst the regular users, like themed avatars or sigs... But some already do that
Maybe some games could have some TDC members DLC or early beta/demos?

I'd pay for it.

I think it should all be free, I can't think of a reason why we need to pay for any particular service, does TDC need the money!?

The money would more than likely go towards hosting fees or whatever the donated monies go to. if the incentives are correct and worthwhile then i can hardly see a problem with a paid section. my one concern is it would have to be policed better than the main site. I.e stop all the name calling and back stabbing.

Well by paying to also view a private forum you generally act within the rules so your paid account doesn't get banned just some more examples, in the paid boards of my previously mentioned forum someone gave us all free tickets to an upcoming motorshow, another chap even gave away a free iPod to a good home. Also paid members get slightly larger dimensions for avatars

I don't see the point in something like that.

why does everyone want something for nothing?? NOTHING in life is free! If you don't pay for it now you will have to do so at some point in the future. How much must this site cost on an annual basis?? On average there are 3 Advert Banners per page which i'm sure goes a little way towards the hosting fees but sheesh!! If CT decided to start charging for updates would you all stop updating and just stick with an out of date product?? NO is the answer. Just because the kind people who run and host this site (for free!!) suddenly decide that it is about time for them to claim something back from us people are starting to whinge about it.

At the time of writing this (01:18 GMT 26/05) there have been 28 votes cast on this weeks poll. That breaks down to:

6 people would consider paying (me included)
14 want EVERYTHING for free
8 are unsure

what that means is there are 14 registered members of this site who are extremely selfish and inconsiderate. As i said if the incentives were correct and the fee matched what was being offered then i would have no problems with paying it! Admin's/whoever - if you decide to implement this then you may just have first fully paid member!

Rant Over!

Glad to see at least some positive replys.

This is what me and club were thinking about for paid memberships. Everything that is on the site right now would remain free.

1. Your own spot on the create-games.com server, you will get the abbility to upload your own games and pics to the site.

2. Special access to the premium-member forum

3. Different avatar demensions and your own sig

4. Possible a yearly klik-disc being send including a special episode of the klikcast on it.

5. No ads

6. Video reviews & more

My intention with this site is to make it grow i know very well that it is kind of stuck right now we need new members but containing the old members to. I have been trying to talk to clickteam to to help us solve this but these things take time.

Not trying to sound nasty but, that isn't enough to make me want to pay...

TDC used to be about making games, now it's selling out... ;---;

Selling out? If we were to introduce such a system, it wouldn't affect how games are submitted or made, and it won't exactly limit your access to the site. At the end of the day the service provided to you is free and hosting and such has to be paid somehow. If anything, a new payment system such as this would just be like how people make donations to us now, just we give you something in return.

Several communities (communities outside of Klik, I mean) use methods such as these so that they can keep their service free to the majority of people. So I think your comment of us selling out is completely unfair. We haven't even gone ahead with the plans yet, they're still being discussed.

I don't think it's selling out. It costs a fair bit for hosing, especially good ones that manage to run big sites like TDC without (m)any hiccups.

Maybe paid members could get access to some extra themes too?

Am I the only one who finds private forums for paid members kind of pointless? TDC doesn't get much donations to start with, so we'd probably just have a handful of paid members anyway. And what would you say on a private forum?

"Oh hey lol I'm a paid member, OMG YOU'RE ONE TOO?"
"Hai guys, this post will only be read by a total of five people other than myself. Ever."
"Hey how do I make a custom platform movement? (Silence)... Anyone? (Tumbleweed)... Please?"


Makes for some great discussion.

Its not compulsary, so it'd be more along the lines of a donation, but with benefits from doing so

Another benefit for paid members could be to have some sort of say in future updates on the sites, and to becmoe pat of the judging team for ompetitions if they wanted. Of course they wouldn't be able to enter the competition if they wanted to judge it but it wouldbe upto them to apply if they wanted to.
