Premium Access Now Available

52 posts in this topic

Those of you with us long enough know that we've always had server issues. In the past we've financed server moves through donations. We have decided it is time to offer a Premium subscription for $12 annually. Those of you who opt not to subscribe will see no changes other than the following:

Standard plan: Free

  • Number of seconds between searches has changed from 10 seconds to 30 seconds.
  • Edit time restriction (in minutes) has changed from unlimited to 15 minutes.


The reason for this is these are two areas that directly effect server performance.

Premium plan: $15/annually

  • Everything currently available to a standard member:
  • Number of seconds between searches has changed from 30 seconds to 10 seconds.
  • Edit time restriction (in minutes) would change from 15 minutes to unlimited.
  • 500 message limit in PM system.
  • Ability to embed HTML in the posts of select forums. (this will allow direct embedding of youtube videos)
  • Access to the "Rated R" forum.
  • Access to the "C&G Council" where Admins will take up issues for a vote that a larger number of C&Gers should have a say in.
  • Ability to request free upgrade to the "Politics and Social issues" forum.
  • An @Cheersandgears.com email address by request.
  • A C&G supporter icon next to their name on every post. (Future rollout date)


To subscribe to premium membership, go to your "My Controls" page. On the left hand column under "Options" find "Purchase Paid Subscription". The subscription will not automatically renew at the end of the term.

With additional revenue we can continue to fund the server costs and future upgrades.

Thank you for your attention,

Your Admin Team

Good one.

I want to talk to you about a couple of ideas I have which I would like to share with you and discuss with the Admin.

Another suggestion:

To throw some gravy initially - why not put an unlimited membership for limited time at $30, which is equivalent to 2.5 years of membership?

No pr0n in Rated R, no deal. :P

How about car pr0n--photos of engines taken apart, inside transmission cases, other dirty bits? :)

I'm sure I can go figure this out on my own, but there are probably others wondering too...

What are the payment options (credit card, paypal)?

You should have posted this a few days earlier. I just deleted a bunch of messages in my PM box because I had reached my 200 message limit. Damn. :P

Fork over the 12 bucks dammit. The R Rated section wouldn't be complete without your posts in it. :P

I was about to do it via paypal earlier, then I thought to myself, "Self, wouldn't it be fantastic to send a money order in the name of Dick Hertz?"

If I upgrade, can I still be the one and only MemberBV? I don't want to lose my group. :P

If you upgrade it will automatically move you into the premium members group and out of MemberBV group
