    Can we turn off the premium forums on the main page if we're not subscribers?

    You should make a monthly subscription offer, as if I pay 49.99 and find no "real" benefit to it It'll be 50.00 wasted, rather if I paid monthly, I could pay less, test it, if I don't like it - not as much wasted.

    Is that all the benefits of premium membership? The old one has advertisement discount benefits. Also, is the inetinteractive member area still open?

    Done my part, btw ... now, I demand my T-Shirt!

    Yep, I wouldn't have noticed the return of the Premium Member option if it weren't for those forums popping up on WHT when I logged in

    I do not think it looks very good to have the WHT Premium Membership on top considering the newest post is from October, It will probably turn some new people away as the first impression is a not very active forum.

    On version 1 there was a way to remove individual elements (forums, online users, etc.) from the index. Could you have proslacker make that again?

    Also, it'd be great if we could get a mousepad along with the t-shirt, since i really need a mousepad.

    Glad to see this back in action, EXCELLENT work here . Just a couple (as usual) questions:

    FEES
    This is listed as a benefit why? Just kind of curious.

    Will the premium membership also offer the same discounts on advertising to WHT, as was done previously (think it was a 25% discount)?

    Will we get to see a picture of the shirt?

    So far, it doesn't look that impressive, maybe with the discount added back in it'd be more tempting to those of us that don't get any huge benefit from the other stuff.

    If that's not mentioned in the Premium list, then it's most likely not going to be part of the new Premium deal.

    That's not going to stop him or me from asking. Seriously though I need closure on that question.

    Maybe they're not answering because they don't have the official answer from iNet yet. Patience . iNet doesn't do business on the weekend.

    Personally, I'd love for the answer to that to be yes, but, for now, we can assume it's no.

    Sorry. I must have missed that.

    Advertising discounts are not going to be a part of Premium Membership.

    It depends upon the nature of your inquiry. If there's a support issue, someone should be responding. If it's sales, then I wouldn't expect a reply until Monday.

    I'm sure there's a picture of the previous t-shirt around here somewhere . . .

    I'm just wondering when the changes were made? I had prepaid for I believe it was six months, from what I recall my existing premium membership shouldn't of expired already... (unless I somehow got the dates wrong)

    I thought this was being revamped for the new release? It seems to be the exact same as before. Still seems to be a waste of money which I am glad I realized before so I don't give my money out for nothing again.

    That's how it works. If there's something you like, you buy it. If it's something that doesn't appeal to you, you don't buy it. Pretty simple.

    That was not what I said at all. I was saying that you guys were telling everyone it was being brought down to be revamped when that was not the truth at all. It is the exact same.

    I think it was brought down to bring the hype about all of the complaints against it down, then you re-release it hoping people have forgot.

    Seriously? Guess I don't remember there being a ton of complaints about it. There was the occassional, "What is it" thread, but I don't recall folks complaining about premium membership.

    There were a few, but mainly people wanted different things. However, when SWR and others tried to get a coherent list of things people wanted changed, nobody could really agree, and in the end the changes would have been minor at best.

    They took premium membership down, I think in part becuase of the complaining, and becuase they weren't really making much money off of it (there were a lot of premium members, just not too many new ones). Now it's back, since we've complained oh so bitterly about it being gone, when they took it down to revamp it (for the complainers).

    Guess ya can't please everybody.

    They revamped the plans and cost on the Prem. Member. I think over all it is going to be a great addition to WHT and they can even work on adding things in the future if they wish. As said in the past - if it doesn't work for you - then don't worry about. The premium membership is for those that will utilize the options available to them. And for some - its a status thing - but hey - we all have done things for the status.

    Personally I don't see any new benefits other than the PM increase so it's quite pointless for me anyway since the advertising discount is now gone.

    I guess the PM increase is a good thing but that advertising discount was a good premium feature and without it well I don't think i'll be staying premium(I was going to renew)
