    Then MMOC should ask those guys to pay a sub.

    Make it so you can only access OT if you pay a sub, and OT will have GESTAPO SUPER NANNY ULTIMATE SOYBOY moderation, so that these guys who want more moderation don't get their feelings hurt, we hardened criminals don't have access to it.

    Let's see how many pay a sub.

    Because moderation here polices EVERYTHING instead of just the serious cases.
    Because all mods are politically left-leaning and I blab too much.

    I think the new prices are far too high for what you get. Personally I would love to see the site get back to core competencies, expand coverage of all MMO's, game news generally, and scrap all of the OT stuff. In those cases it might be worth thinking about paying for (but probably not at $5.99 a month).

    I'm not going to get into moderation issues for obvious reasons except to say the more the thread is a bitch thread about mods the more likely it is to be closed.

    Okay... I'm kind of a n00b to this but, if you pay for Premium can you give yourself a custom title?

    Yeah if they want more people to sign up for premium, they're going to have to offer some more practical benefits. For example, $6/month and you're allowed to post memes. $10/month and you can necro threads. $16/month and you get to flame/nation-bash up to 3 times each month without being infracted.

    Yeah no.

    Whatever they do, premium should not allow to skirt the rules.

    Yeah that'd be an awful idea.. Maybe make a premium-specific forum with some rules removed, but no skirting the rules in normal forums

    Damn, for this price I could have a montly subscription to 2 paper magazines, writing about all kinds of games, each with some free games every month. All this talk about websites being a cheaper medium, heh...

    I used to have a yearly sub recently, just to support the site, but this is too much
    I have enough of EA ruining great franchises and studios, forcing DRM and Origin on their games, releasing incomplete games only to sell day-1 DLCs or spill dozens of DLCs, and then saying it, and microtransactions, is what players want, stopping players from giving EA games poor reviews, as well as deflecting complaints with cheap PR tricks.

    I'm not going to buy any game by EA as long as they continue those practices.

    not sure why they do a sub at all. just setup a patreon. would probably be less contentious than a sub on the site directly.
    link patreon subs with accounts on the site, and give them come privileges, like more emojis, special titles, etc.

    I would absolutely pay $6 a month for a gen-OT/politics that only let other people with premium post there.

    Gestapo super nanny ultimate soyboy moderation wouldn't be needed when the 50% of OT traffic that comes from couple of people with their sock puppets wouldn't be able to afford premium for all their alts.

    It doesn't even need to be a separate forum, they just need to stop entirely fresh accounts from being able to post altogether in subforums about more real world topics.

    The whole sockpuppet and burner accounts problem would go away instantly if posters needed their account to be say 3 months old before they can post there at all.

    $9 a year was super reasonable and I paid it solely to support the site. Increasing that price to $60 minimum a year with no additional perks completely loses the purpose.

    You would have lost, that poster got infracted.

    The post just shouts for attention tough. Assuming a guy must be german because his name sounds german (I think the poster he quoted is actually american) and then calling him a doofus based on the misconception of nationality. Very ironic....and also I think meant to bait us into flaming.

    I recently noticed that my forum membership had expired. I typically buy the one year premium for $9 so you can imagine my surprise when I saw that the lowest tier now costs $60. Sorry, but with the COVID-19 pandemic currently ravaging my country, with financial security for the foreseeable future now uncertain and the fact I still need to feed and house my family, I cannot afford these increased prices.

    To the new owners, Magic Find, I think you folks are making a huge mistake.

    For all you who like to say All Lives Matter when people say Black Lives Matter, I get it, you are afraid of being marginalized. But here's the deal, your lives have always mattered because of your privilege. People of color have never had that, all we are asking for is true equal treatment.

    Saw my sub had fallen off, went to renew and saw the mahoosive price hikes.

    Yeah, nah. Adblock it is. GG MMOC, that's how you kill a site

    The way mods infract you at a whim while giving known instigating baiting trolls free pass 24/7, I wouldn't care really.
