Thread: DP introduces Premium memberships

Hybrid View

  1. DP introduces Premium memberships

    DP introduces paid memberships.

    If you haven't noticed yet, DP is [ame="http://forums.digitalpoint.com/showthread.php?t=1527490"]introducing premium membership[/ame]

    Currently after paying about $10-15 per month you get:


    • Access to private forum for premium users
    • Private message box will hold up to 5,000 messages and don't auto-delete until after 180 days (1,000 messages and 90 days is default)
    • Ability to change user title (regardless if you change it [or even if you don't]), your user title will be bold
    • You can customize your profile (see my profile for an example)
    • Threads you start in Buy/Sell/Trade will be sticky for the first 2 hours (stay at the top) as well as become sticky again for the last 2 hours of your sale.
    • Threads in Buy/Sell/Trade are highlighted
    • Keyword Tracker users get additional functionality
    • You get 4 links in your signature (2 is default)

    Coolness But I'll stay free membership, since I would only pay money for a community that's well worth it (NetBuilders)

    I guess its 4 as default. Unless they have changed the TOS recently.
    I too would be staying as a free member. $10-15 a month is too much for just a premium forum membership which you anyways can't use much with the fear of getting stupid infractions like "Trying to raise post count", "Spam", etc.etc.

    Anyways good luck to you on upgrading. Do let us know how the experience is

    I think they changed it, 2 seems to be the max now for regular members.
    I do lots of biz on DP so I'll probably upgrade soon for the cool bold username and thread highlighting, sticky benefits.

    Are you a member of any paid forums? Trolls and haters usually do not buy paid memberships.

    Most of the time its people that actually care about the community and want to help keep it online that buy the premium memberships.

    Well, if I were to buy a paid membership, i would look at the benefits that it has to offer me and then decide whether the deal is good or not.
    As far as community service is concerned, a forum member gets back what he gives. Buying a paid membership in no ways is going to affect the forum community as the money moves to the forum owner and not the members.
    A simple donation is enough is pay your gratitude towards the forum owner, to serve the community, helping them out by involving yourself in discussions is the best way to go ahead.

    the mods dont' just "start to hate you"

    I've thought about buying the membership just for the extra sig links
    I don't use anything else that's included.
    I offer vBulletin Services (5+ years experience & over 600+ documented clients)
    I help run a successful Admin Forum and play around on a vBulletin Connect setup.

    BST sticky/highlighting option is good, but then I don't trade much on DP.

    Nowadays, signatures are so difficult to sell, so I don't mind having only 2...

    Rest all features don't really mean much.

    I will stay a free member.
    note: when you replace this, dont use masked URL. thanks ~ admin
