    You are correct - it is in fact worth over US$50,000,000 ..

    Not everyone exposed to the new Corona Virus(SARS-CoV-2) will catch it, not everyone who catches it will develop the disease (COVID-19), not everyone who develops the disease will get sick, a small percentage of those who get sick will be very ill, and a small percentage of those who get very ill will die.

    Don't panic.

    Yes, without limits on topics to speak on and free flaming!

    We could be flinging shit like the monkeys we are in ten different circumcision threads.

    No matter the topic, someone will find a way to redirect it to complain about their current aggro.

    "bloat" being additional features that uBlock doesn't provide for free.

    uBlock Origin provides all the features for free, without the bloat... it isn't the complex a thing to figure out.

    Not everyone exposed to the new Corona Virus(SARS-CoV-2) will catch it, not everyone who catches it will develop the disease (COVID-19), not everyone who develops the disease will get sick, a small percentage of those who get sick will be very ill, and a small percentage of those who get very ill will die.

    It's a pretty steep increase. I'm all in for things like true benefits but unfortunately I don't overly care much about my name in lights. People value things differently though so it's a free market.

    I'd pay extra premium for circumcision threads.

    By the way the minimum is 6$ for a rare badge. I think I’ll wait for the 35$ a month Diamond level.
    What does that give, immunity to infractions?

    If it wasn't for ad-blockers of any sort, I think this site would see a lot less traffic...and with Blizz going hot and cold, that might translate to a dead site as often then not.
    Acquittal doesn't mean exoneration

    i was thinking of subscribing to premium now that moderation seemed to be going in the right direction but at 60$ a year. nope. not unless we get a forum where we can discuss previously banned subjects or whatever. some of those threads were quite interesting.

    So everyone that did premium will just go back to adblocking.

    Was looking for a thread like this. I've been waiting for the Premium rework from this site so I could support it, but the pricing is insane. I gladly paid the $9/yr for Wowhead and would be interested in a similar pricing structure here, but $6/mo minimum is absolutely laughable for an ad-free experience from a website which is basically a news repository and toxic forum. It's insane to me that mmo-c thinks its premium should cost 6-16x more than Wowhead's Premium.

    A sampling of the post counts of people who don't think this site is worth supporting:

    18,969
    25,002
    29,705
    11,968
    16,304
    22,236
    11,341

    Just from this thread.

    Not everyone exposed to the new Corona Virus(SARS-CoV-2) will catch it, not everyone who catches it will develop the disease (COVID-19), not everyone who develops the disease will get sick, a small percentage of those who get sick will be very ill, and a small percentage of those who get very ill will die.

    Think i'll just greenlight the site in my adblocker instead. It'd be sad to see it die but I also have no problem moving to wowhead if they really want to kill the site like this trying to extort the few who care enough to chip-in from their own pocket. This isn't what you do to break-even, this is what you do to profit or cut your losses.

    i'm sorry we're not flush with cash. it's nice you have the spare cash to burn on a shiny badge. other people do not. poor shaming is childish and pointless.

    Not being able to support the site is fine, but people with tens of thousands of posts saying that it isn't worth supporting - that's a different thing.

    Indeed, and I would never do such a thing.

    Not everyone exposed to the new Corona Virus(SARS-CoV-2) will catch it, not everyone who catches it will develop the disease (COVID-19), not everyone who develops the disease will get sick, a small percentage of those who get sick will be very ill, and a small percentage of those who get very ill will die.

    I think it is worth supporting, but it's not worth 6 dollars a month. If the "Rare" tier was at 1-2 dollars? Absolutely I'd buy it, hell I did beforehand. As soon as the old system was launched I threw my money in for it.

    There is the catch 22 - if it is worth supporting, then one needs to look at how much it COSTS to run, not how much it is WORTH to run.

    At $6 a month, they'd probably need 1000 people signing up.
    At $1 a month, they'd need 10,000 people signing up.

    Which do you think is more likely

    Not everyone exposed to the new Corona Virus(SARS-CoV-2) will catch it, not everyone who catches it will develop the disease (COVID-19), not everyone who develops the disease will get sick, a small percentage of those who get sick will be very ill, and a small percentage of those who get very ill will die.

    Don't panic.

    Neither because that's not how economics of a free service work?

    What concerns me more is those people that spend 60 bucks a month for nothing that also spend time, a more valuable thing, to come and defend it.

    I give criticism for free. Because I can. Why pay to do it?
