    Premium Request: The PREMIUM flag on posts

    Can we disable the tag above my 5 year tag, it really seems pretentious to flag anything I have to say as premium.

    If you want special features for premium users - maybe animated avatars, or extra space on SIGs ... or maybe extra infraction count buffer

    In addition - removing the Premium button up top for premium users.

    Most websites that offer a premium subscription will put a little tag that says "Premium" or "Donator" or something on or around the avatar/username of the person that contributed money to the site.

    I'd agree it should be able to be turned off or on, though. Some people may not want to display it for whatever reason.

    But an elite mob style graphic around my avatar then

    To me premium just sounds way too pretentious...

    I agree "premium" is kind of a dumb word to use. 'Donator' or even like 'VIP' sound a lot better, but it's not that big of a deal either way.

    2. >"Animated avatars, extra space on sigs, extra infraction count buffer"

    premium (adjective) - of exceptional quality or greater value than others of its kind; superior:
    pretentious (adjective) - characterized by assumption of dignity or importance, especially when exaggerated or undeserved:

    An option to turn it off is something I'd like to do, but haven't had time to do yet.

    Cool ... I don't expect all the chickens to hatch at once, I'm just glad I can now pay for the site as I've been using an adblocker (out of necessity) to visit the site for a long time.

    The ability to turn it off would be nice (i would keep it on). In addition there could be one of the following:

    * A coloured portrait border saying how many years this user was Premium, just like the 5-year or 10-year counter we got. No number on the portrait, just the colour.
    * A "glossy-reflection"-style animated overlay over the avatar. Not animated avatars due to storage constrains but a simple animation over it.
    * Notifications through Curse and/or Twitch on followed forum posts. Maybe through the browser too.
    * Ability to connect through Battle.net's API to to find fellow forum users on Battle.net. Both parties must consent before sharing Battle Tags of course, just as a "Request Battle Tag" notification.

    Agreed. Subtle but still showing the "premium special snowflake" factor is a better approach. This is too "in your face".

    Also another note.

    Once you have purchased the premium, please get rid of the premium button as I am already a member now.

    We need an option to ignore all the premium users, like TRH! /s

    I don't blame them all you do is shitpost.

    On topic I was kind of hoping it was going to be a cool avatar border or something like that just another badge seems boring.

    What kind of fancy borders are you guys wanting? You can easily make them yourself, or have someone else do it.

    Its not needed. I think it would be a better than the premium badge, thats just an opinion. But really, its not important. I donate to the cause as I use the forums, not for just conversation, but I do learn alot on here as well, especially in the Computer forums.

    If you paid via Paypal, you cancel by going to Paypal - will stop the subscription renewing.
