on buying a membership today.

never been a member of a pay type forum so i have been "test driving" for a while.  i have read through what all comes with being a paid member and so far really like what i see so i think today is the day to jump on in.

i'm curious, what is the features you like the most about being a paid member VS. non-paid?


update

just sucked it up and bought in...the green button is nothing less than a thing of beauty!!!  thanks all for the nudge to do it.
as a life long gun nut, i can say already that it was worth what i spend on beer in a few days.

I liked it.  The best parts were subscriptions and a bigger PM inbox.  I miss those things but not enough to justify the $24.  It did suck having to delete a bunch of old semi-important PMs to be able to send anything after my clock ran out.

BOTD = yawn. There's a lot of other sites that are better if you want to look @ T&A

The best feature of a team membership is subscribing to threads IMO, the rest is just meh...

ETA Oh, spelchek and the "ignore" feature but I've only come accross 3 people here that I used that for

Those two features are wonderful.  


BOTD is silly.  The internet is FILLED with naughty pictures of women.  The notion that getting access to arfcom's tame "babe" forum has significant value is ludicrous, IMO.

Do it, it only amounts to two bucks a month for a bronze. If you're like me, you piss away more than that every single day on something from a vending machine.

How does that work? I've posted in tons of threads and none of them are added to my subscriptions, unless I hit the subscribe button. Not sure if that would be a good or bad feature for me.

The 2nd selection in edit preferences is subscriptions. Select subscribe without email notification, and all threads you post in will show up when you hit the Subscriptions button.

That and the green arrow make it worth the price for me.

Is the "Highlight All posts by OP" feature a Team only thing? That is another feature that is awesome.

And every once in a while a BOTD thread will come along that is  
Like now, for example

If you are using the site more than once a week $2 a month is a bargin.

My favorite features are no ads in the thread, subscriptions, and last post read.

It's not like being a member turns the site into a super site, but I've learned so much here, and had lots of good discussions that I figure $2 a month to help keep the site going is easily worth it.
