    I have been receiving a few e-mails and a few phone calls in reference to the BOC changing to a paid member service.

    These are rumors are entirely untrue; we will not be changing to a paid service. The BOC will always remain free.

    There will a premium membership option available shortly, for members who wish to add more punch to their account. But this premium service will be optional.

    Thanks,
    Paul

    Will this premium membership include donations or will this be a seperate plan? Will the info be put out when you post the info on how to donate on the 18th of this month? Will the premium membership be a life time thing or will we have to renew every year?


    P.S. THANKS for keeping this site FREE!!

    Premium membership option will be on an annual basis. The fee's raised will go to support the server operational cost.

    They will be two seperate enities.

    I understand now, I hope I can afford the premium membership. I sure will choose that plan.

    I guess clarifying the difference between the three would be helpful. I'm guessing it's just the amount of support given to the site. Please correct me if I am wrong Paul.

    Paul I'm sure you have all the plans in the making and will get r done in time.
    Once its all done and said I'm hopeing an update on how the premium membership etc. will work. I'm wondering if premium membership will limit some areas of posting, like the H.I. area or is it for other extra features.

    Gents,

    A small explanation that may help..

    Many members have asked in the past the ability to do the following:

    Increase Private mail storage above 200 messages

    Use the advanced search feature

    Use the Who's Online, "Shows everyones action and location"

    Get a custom Title


    etc.

    These features have been removed, as it utlizes to much server resources and comprimises the community. For those members who really want the extra features, they can pay as they go. This service will fill that void, and cover any additional cost necesary to cover upgrades in the process.

    Thanks,
    Paul
