    Chat: Text, webcams, voice and much more. Create private rooms, hold video-conferences / meetings etc.

    Favorites: Store your favorites in your account for future reference, or to share with friends

    Collections: Keep track of the posters you own, and let everyone see the posters you buy

    Premium Discounts: Special rates for products and services - for Premium Members only!

    Premium Opportunities: Projects, job postings, gigs etc.

    Arcade: An added bonus for those who need extra entertainment. Over 2000 games to compete in.

    Currently, there are 11,694 members with 1,702 who have actively logged in in the last 30 days.

    There are currently 392 Premium Members.

    I would like to know what it would take to get more people to sign up for Premium Memberships. Please let me know if there are features you would like to see, or if you are totally not interested etc.

    For $10 a year, you could make this a private site. I mean $10, that's like .04 a day? Give people a 2 week free trial? I know you won't do this, but that's just my opinion. People need to show support of this site by joining Premium Membership.

    Maybe the radio staion might pull some people in. But for the most part, I just think some people are cheapasses.

    i think that alot of the things that happen in the "free site" have value..

    ie, printing quesitions... process threads... how to get work...

    if these topics the regulars posted in the premium section, you could bill the premium section with those nuggets of info.. its like buying a book about design, but in real time...

    I would have signed up by now- but I'm so busy, I don't think I'd end up utilizing any of the goodies.

    also, for example hank 3 projects, jucifer projects, melvins projects... you would only have a crack at these gigs if you could read the threads in the premium place.

    I think its less about what youre offering and more about people just needing to pony up a measely $10.

    I think everything, which is a lot, that you offer is more than enough for most people. A lot of what you offer in some capacity is beneficial...such as when the chat is used to talk business...or the awesome specials in the premium forums.

    My only thought on throwing that extra enticing blow...is to make the ability to post a classified Premium Member only while still leaving it that anyone could buy.

    whoops, i meant to click am premium and am HAPPY.

    for others, maybe have a yearly donated shirt design and jacking the price 5 bucks or so to cover giving 1 away to each new premium member. a donated design by the right designer would be worth 15+ bucks alone to some(myself included). i agree that the premium section rules already though.

    i disagree with dave. I don't think I've looked at the Premium Member forum more than once.
