A Membership Fee

Postby Damok » Mon Jan 17, 2011 7:53 pm

Right another suggestion :lol: :lol: . What would people think of a membership fee :idea: :idea: . Like say you pay €30 for the year and you get a set of stickers for the windows and something :? If you dont pay it's no problem you can still use the site BUT some sections are off limits for reading or posting. Just a suggestion but say Nicks offers are off limit if you dont pay your membership, The garage is for members only. etc. .
Only reason i suggest, Is i'm sure it cost a few pound for the up keep of the site and well we do all use the site .
This is just a suggestion what are people opinions ! !

Yea something like a t-shirt, or maybe the TW hat and stickers?? Think the most important thing is getting the name out there anyway! 8)

The thing about that is nick who provides a fantastic service to us would be loosing out on potential customers which wouldnt be fair on him.

Good idea

think 30's a bit much tho, who would deal with the money side of thing ??

maybe you could have a few different types regarding how much you pay.
Cheap membership you an introduction to the club with a set of 2 small window stickers.
Mid range where you could get a tezzaworld sunstrip and stickers.
Top range all the stickers and a item from the shop.

Then at least that way people have a bit of a choice of how much they want to pay towards the club

I don't think you need to change the forum layout at all, I think it works well and is quite free and friendly to look about. You could have a members lounge type thing where it is not in public view and you could talk more freely or in more confidence.

Maybe Nick could only do discounted rates for paid up members of the club??

more thought has to be put into this. Some people on this site dont seem to know what paypal is. A lot wont have credit cards and some have never heard of 3v cards. So how will these people pay? do we just forget about them?

Who is going to look after the membership side of things? Isnt Dizz going travelling for a while?

We have old members who got rid of their cars and visit frequently, are they going to pay or should they have to?

It should only be a one time fee not an annual fee imo. newbies wont pay 30euro, if you just logged on to anysite would you pay 30euros without knowing how good it is.

If we need to raise money it should be done through events, newbies selling should have their thread deleted not locked. Dont forget there is a donate button on the front page.

Despite how it might sound, I have no problem paying a membership fee cos this site has being very usefull but some of the above questions need answers :D

There's lots of other ways people could pay MooMoo, bank transfer, Direct Debit etc . .

I'm sure Dizz is going to ask someone to look after the site when he's away, We have Mod's on site, Noel being the longest one.

I agree with the one off payment perhaps as even RobinH said 30 was alot, It was just a figure i suggested :? But perhaps a lower fee could be agreed.

As for raising money through events, Thats a bit of a joke, Alot of members on here are all talk. Theres been 5events that i can think of this year and it's been the same handful who attend as you well know after japfest :wink: To raise money through events it would be the same group over and over which is'nt fair at all.
I have donated to the site and it was the money from the Dyno Day that was left over and i didnt use the donate button :? cant say i ever seen it either. :oops: :oops:

As for old members perhaps As RobinH suggested there would be different levels of membership, Perhaps Nick might be open to the idea of a special offers once a month for Tezzaworld payed members or extra discount on a selected item for members only and they have there own section, This way as Barry said Nick wouldnt loose newbie customers :idea:
Different Memberships (as Robin H suggested)
1 to use the forum
1 to get into different area's (for sale secton/nicks offers/members areas)
Just remember you cant please eveyone :D
