    All I did was use the <if> statements to show an ad for non-contributing members or else show the style drop down for contributing members. Then I removed the code to alter the style from the user cp.

      After i upgrade, i am planning to give a ad free solution for premium members, avatars, extra forum and styles.

      I don't know the price for sure, but i think it will be 10 euro's a year.

        I'm thinking about access to extra forums, ability to submit links to linkdump, no ads, avatars, etc.

        Thinking of charging between $2.50 to $4.50/month... haven't figured out the specifics yet.

          Yes I did, that is why I posted it.

            I've been wanting to do something like this for a while, but I'm not very creative. I just started a new forum, topic=Free exchange for posting Motorcycle Rides, events and fund raisers, with the intention of making a few bucks. Question was how? This thread has been very inspiring. My target audiance is 21 to 70 year olds, Motorcycle riders. So taking the ideas from this thread I've come up with a $20.00 per year Premium Membership.

            * A User Definable Custom Title
            * A Customizable Signature for your Posts
            * Custom Avatar up to 115x115 16Kb
            * Ability to Start Polls
            * Ability to send up to 50 PM's at once Vs 1
            * Ability to store 500 PM's Vs 5
            * Ability to upload attachments and pics
            * Access to a Private Premium Members only Forum
            * Surf the site without ads

            Thanks for the ideas, we'll see how this works out as it is a startup, only 1 week old. We will be working on advertising by getting fliers out to the bars. We hope to get these same bars as advertisers too.

              That seems like a lot of features only available to paying members. That's your choice, but for a website just starting up I would recommend making more of those features available by default. People aren't going to sign up for premium membership when the site is only a week old and they can't trust that the community will be there in a year.

              I would recommend launching your boards with signatures, avatars, polls and attachments all available as options to all members. Not having these options available will definitely limit the potential of your community. Then, in a few months once the site has been sufficiently popular that people will consider paying for subscriptions, you can add that option.

              Your members won't stay for long if there are similar boards with free feature or they find the features on your site too limiting. This certainly isn't the way to get subscribers. You need to have an established board before you, or rather, your members, will even consider it.

              You shouldn't expect to make money in the first few months of any website, particularly a community (even then, you should keep in mind that even communities that cover their expenses are rarely profit centers).
