    Someone who pays to get a little title bar under their name.

    A little cynical are we?

    How about:
    Someone who pays to 1) receive discount on advertising campaigns at WHT, 2) someone who wants to support WHT, or even 3) someone who wants a free t-shirt

    Surely they can't all be for title bars under their names.

    Perhaps not all, but let's just say that it's what the majority got out of it.

    How many people who paid for premium membership do you think took advantage of the cheaper advertising? A very small percentage I'm guessing.

    How many people renewed membership? Again, I'm guessing a small percentage.

    How many people benifited from the now defunct host quote system? Not many from what I've read. A bit of a disaster really.

    If someone wants a free tshirt it doesn't really make much sense to pay for it.

    If someone wants to "support" WHT they can do so by posting and helping others. Again, it's kind of silly to pay a company to make posts on a forum when they are already making a very good sum on paid advertising.

    You'd be surprised at what folks will do for a badge.

    There is no such thing as a platinum member. However, there is this really cool membership program called Premium Membership. I don't think that's related, though
