View Full Version : A Proposal for AustinChief: CP Premium Membership

I propose creating a premium level of Planet membership.

Premium membership would cost, say, $5 per month. Maybe buy a year in advance for $50. Nothing expensive or burdensome; just enough to clear out the suckers.

Non-premium members could still come here and ride for free. Lurkers could still lurk to their hearts' content. Trolls could still troll.

The perks of premium membership would be two-fold:

1. Only premium members are allowed to vote in polls regarding the operation of the site. (Regular polls would continue to be open to the general public at the option of the poll starter).

2. Premium members can participate in a separate premium members only forum (call it a lurker/troll free zone).

I see this as a win-win for Kyle, who would certainly appreciate the influx of cash, and those of us who would happily pay for the privilege of premium membership who are tired of being dragged around by n00bs, multiple login types and trolls.

Discuss.

I would buy a premium membership...but get over yourself guy. Why do you have to start some gay ass poll every week that is about community or guy on guy buttsex or blah blah blah blah blah...

I vote we give Frazod and Zach there own sub-forum so they can start threads for each other and talk about how Zach was a great football player and how awesome it is to be a part of such a great internet community...that way we don't have to read all of this faggy shit every week.

We'll have to figure out a way to keep the N00bs (sp?), multiple login types, and trolls from paying the $5 dollars, Mr. frazod.

I say we rob them.

i appreciate your concerns, but this would be the final undoing of what little of the original Chiefsplanet spirit remains...

maybe we just need a heavier hand moderating the board...although that too undoes the reasons we came here in the first place...

Pretty solid idea.

My thinking is that you'd want to have people pay yearly, because God knows there are enough dipshit trolls that would gladly pay $5 each month to run rampant in the "premium" section.

Sorry but that is a foolish idea.. All the other places that have a premium content suck compared to here..

If you want to do a paid/VIP membership, make paid people get better/quicker search options or priority for connectivity during the draft or games when the Planet is busy.. Basically it would boot a lurker or non VIP member first so paid member would not get the planet is busy message.. That way you get something out of your money..

Or hell, make a VIP option to where they can use rep/money in a no limit poker game whereas non VIP members cannot play..

But a separate section for posting just for VIP is gay and would be the death knell of CP imo...

The perks of premium membership would be two-fold:

1. Only premium members are allowed to vote in polls regarding the operation of the site. (Regular polls would continue to be open to the general public at the option of the poll starter).


2. Premium members can participate in a separate premium members only forum (call it a lurker/troll free zone).

I see this as a win-win for Kyle, who would certainly appreciate the influx of cash, and those of us who would happily pay for the privilege of premium membership who are tired of being dragged around by n00bs, multiple login types and trolls.

Discuss.


How often do we have a poll regaurding the operation of the site ? Not very. And so far the mods and Kyle have done an outstanding job running this place.

As far as a seperate forum I have an idea thats a win win for everyone. Start your own site and only invite the people you want. (Thats the only way you'll be rid of Hootie :p )

Tired of being dragged around by noobs........? How hard is it to roll the scroll wheel on your mouse just one more time to bypass something posted ?
It's easy as hell to NOT click on a thread posted by someone you already know is an idiot, attention whore, or bi-curious. I know for a fact it works on Goat Boy, I'm sure it will work on any of them.

Since I've been a member this place has been one big melting pot of people with varying degrees of interest in the Chiefs. It's what makes this place great.
If it ain't broke don't fix it.

So is this a way to get rid of people like Me? Im on these forums everyday, logged in or not. I rarely post, because most people already say what im thinking and i dont feel a need to repeat what others are saying. I like reading other opinions; it's insightful. This is one of the best resources for not only NFL related info, but info on weird random events. That and i think most of you are hilarious. It's entertainment. It would suck if everyone adopted some elite attitude and decided to make there own little "Club". IT would be the end of this board. Yeah, some people make stupid posts and comments.

2. Premium members can participate in a separate premium members only forum (call it a lurker/troll free zone).


I think this idea could work if the forum was heavily monitored. Even in that case, the best idea might be to require the $50 (or whatever) up front. Someone would pay $50 to troll, but who would do it knowing they could get banned after a couple of posts?

The problem then becomes the "heavily monitored", and defining what is and what is not permitted. One thing about this board is that if you start a serious thread, the first 10 replies will be filled with sarcasm. It can be a little annoying during the times I'm actually looking for a decent discussion, but it ranks pretty low on the list of trollish behavior. Drawing that line, especially when people are paying money, would be incredibly difficult. There might end up being more polls voting people out than 'premium' threads.

I personally like the idea, and like it's been said, it's just another forum... I have no need for politics, so I don't go to DC. If someone doesn't have a need for serious discussion outside of what's provided in this forum, then don't pay for a premium membership.

I propose creating a premium level of Planet membership.

Premium membership would cost, say, $5 per month. Maybe buy a year in advance for $50. Nothing expensive or burdensome; just enough to clear out the suckers.

Non-premium members could still come here and ride for free. Lurkers could still lurk to their hearts' content. Trolls could still troll.

The perks of premium membership would be two-fold:

1. Only premium members are allowed to vote in polls regarding the operation of the site. (Regular polls would continue to be open to the general public at the option of the poll starter).

2. Premium members can participate in a separate premium members only forum (call it a lurker/troll free zone).

I see this as a win-win for Kyle, who would certainly appreciate the influx of cash, and those of us who would happily pay for the privilege of premium membership who are tired of being dragged around by n00bs, multiple login types and trolls.

Discuss.




If this does happen, I'll bail and post somewhere else

Define 'serious discussion'.

One of the main reasons it's so hard to draw the line between 'serious discussion' and 'Nazi Mods' is that what once was funny will soon be ruined by everyone wanting to be funny at least 5 times.

If the forum states "Only reply if it's valuable to the discussion, and never reply with cute fads like 'antifreeze,' 'Damnit Carl,' 'repost,' etc"; some will take it as not being able to have the slightest amount of fun. But, it happens a few times then 2 years later people are still posting the same crap in every thread.

I'd say a serious discussion is one that doesn't involve personal attacks, thread hijackings (if it's 'Damnit Carl' or otherwise), or stirring the pot for no other reason than to stir the pot (meaning, arguing something not in order to make people think, but to annoy the sh*t out of them).

That doesn't mean it's old humorless pipe-smoking businessmen sitting around the fireplace, it would be a place where you could read a few threads without running into the next big ChiefsPlanet drama.

I'm curious, why? I'm pretty tolerant of the crap, but a premium forum would give people who are sick of the sh*t the best way possible to ignore it. Just like DC, some would go to the premium forum and never come back, while others would use both. It would just be a way to filter out the noise and say "Okay, I'm looking for some real advice" or "I'm looking for a serious discussion". But, I don't pay for any message boards, and I don't post much on many at all, so I'm probably missing something.

Game threads would probably have to be a Lounge-only thing though... it's pointless to have 'premium' and 'normal' game threads when it's basically the same knee-jerk play-by-play & reaction.

I don't know about a membership fee. It has good and bad points.

As far as tightening the rules, I think that's a bad idea. I was a Mod at another board with very clear rules, and I was expected to enforce them. However, every little infraction turned into a 3 day discussion over the smallest details of the issue, and people trying to weasel out of what they said. You had to be damn near a lawyer to keep up, and there was little support from the Admins.

The great thing about here is that, though there are plenty of dumbasses, there are more adults/reasonable posters, and we tend to police ourselves pretty well. You are going to have your dumbasses that never go away, like Hootie and Meme, but overall, the openness of the place is what's great about it.

The Lounge would still be free, and I wouldn't think it'd be abandoned.

I think changing the Lounge now would stir up way too much crap, because a lot of people would get banned. I wouldn't mind seeing the Lounge stay loosely monitored and adding a tightly-monitored forum, regardless of whether it required a membership fee.

I have no qualms with Frazod (one of the first guys to give me positive rep actually), but I would hate to see this. I can afford this (I donated about that much to the CP this year already) but I would hate to see the segregation of so many from the Planet. Would it filter out a lot of the garbage posters? Probably. Would it get rid of a lot of good posters too? I'm sure it would. It would be like segregating people to the kid's table at Thanksgiving - not all bad, but people will be upset with the discrimination. (Threads in the main forum wouldn't be as good because so many valued posters would be in the *secret lounge*.

Also, I know I am a n00b, and it is not trendy on this site to have their backs (here comes the neg rep), but I think there are some really valuable posts by guys that are new to the Planet. I didn't post for the longest time because no one wanted to hear what I had to say (f*cking n00b!) but at the same time was called out because I was a lurker (why not just come out and post?).

I don't think any community - on the web or in real life - will ever be perfect, but I don't think the CP would attract as many as it does if it wasn't a pretty good community. JMO.

Anyway, my desire for a premium forum is basically just me wanting a forum free of some of the poo-slinging juveniles (that's what I meant by "chimp," Donger) who have, IMO, gone a long way towards driving away quality members and overall causing this place to go to hell. Some are n00bs; some aren't. I wish it wasn't necessary. I wish the mods would do a better job of taking out the trash, but they don't and honestly, never have. Perhaps if they are unwilling to take care of business, perhaps a core of paying, concerned members could give them a helping hand in that regard.

And no, I'm not advocating NEPA madness. But somewhere between totalitarian control and the monkey cage this place has degenerated into, there must be a happy medium.

We reviewed/updated our ToS at Billszone, then put it in a sticky and started cleaning house and enforcing rules (we had gotten pretty lax for awhile).

Anyone who thinks a BB site is their real "community" and wants to weed out posters "who aren't serious about it" has serious emotional/social issues.
As a visitor it would seem to me that if you guys went to the 'all are equal and some are more so than others' system as Amnorix so aptly described you would lose what separates you from other bb's on the web.

Regardless of how much Fraz wants to hide in the basement with a few of his bestest intraweb buddy-boys the strength of this place lies in the fact that admission is unfettered and posters are given liberal range. Because the board is largely allowed/forced to police itself the board is constantly growing.

IMHO What Fraz proposes would restrict that growth at which point the bb begins it's path towards death.

Oh, note to Fraz: if they do go to a premium you can be assured I'll shell out the $50.00 (if AustinChief will sell me a membership) just so I can stand next to you in the executive washroom and piss on your shoes.

every board on the internet that's more than a year old has a bunch of veteran posters who constantly complain about how it's no longer like "the old days" and how all these new members have made the place shit.

The funny thing is that said "veterans" end up spending more time complaining than they do posting anything interesting or useful. Mostly they seem to piss off elsewhere and the "community" evolves with new members. Geniune trolls tend to get bored and move on fairly quickly anyway.

Again, the main forum would still be intact. The kiddies would still be free to rickroll, hump Huard's leg and wish hatred upon departed pets.

I get your point. I just don't like the idea of a premium membership. I'm not sure it's going to accomplish everything you're hoping for. $50/yr won't keep away the opinions and ideas you don't agree with. People can pony up that much if they are passionate about the Chiefs and this site, and still find a way to bother you.

Sorry but that is a foolish idea.. All the other places that have a premium content suck compared to here..

If you want to do a paid/VIP membership, make paid people get better/quicker search options or priority for connectivity during the draft or games when the Planet is busy.. Basically it would boot a lurker or non VIP member first so paid member would not get the planet is busy message.. That way you get something out of your money..

Or hell, make a VIP option to where they can use rep/money in a no limit poker game whereas non VIP members cannot play..

But a separate section for posting just for VIP is gay and would be the death knell of CP imo...

I agree.

I'm not quite sure where you've been, but valued members have been leaving already. Where is Parker? Stevieray? Russ? I could go on and on with the names of solid members who are never here anymore.

Tim, I consider you a friend and usually agree with your takes. However, as several people have stated, things change. The world moves on, people move on, posters move on. No matter what you do, it will continue to happen.

I would venture a guess, that all the posters that have moved on, have replaced this place, with something they feel stronger about, at this time in their life.

I am a n00b to many of you, but I have learned to ignor posts and posters that I want to ignor. I also seek out posts, from posters I enjoy reading. I don't need any software of special forums to do that.

just my opinion.

Glenn Dorsey presses his forehead on the driver’s-side window, looking behind him and trying not to smile.

An elderly woman has pulled her Jaguar to the left of Dorsey’s giant white Hummer. It has 30-inch rims and a sound system that pumps Young Jeezy loud enough they might hear the bass in East Texas. The woman looks at the driver’s-side window of the Hummer. She can’t see Dorsey through the darker-than-the-legal-limit window tinting, so he stares — and waits for it.

“I like to look at the old ladies’ faces when they drive up,” Dorsey says, keeping the beat with his thumb on the steering wheel. “They never know what to think.”

Then it happens. The woman grimaces at the sound and sight of this four-wheeled monstrosity and shakes her head. Dorsey can’t take it any longer. He erupts in laughter and turns to his cousin, Shawn Nelson, who is riding shotgun and laughing, too.

It might keep out the college aged posters who actually value $50 as well. I know this forum is predominantly 40-60 year old men who probably don't care about spending $50, but some of us do.

Yep, I happen to agree with you on this. To some people 50 bucks is more than just pocket change. I know what people are going to say, well you spend money on what you want, and 50 bucks isn't much, and it's well worth the entertainment. I highly value Chiefs Planet and I spend a lot of time on here during my slow times at work, I think it's great for info and entertainment. I think it would be a bad idea, but that is just my opinion. So we will see what the braintrust votes on.

I guess I'm not seeing why people are opposed to this.

The Planet would run exactly the same, except that people who would like to have a real discussion about a topic could do so without having to fight trolls and dipshits.

In one sub-forum.

If you're willing to pay for that, great. Helps Kyle out as well.

If not, then business as usual.

so who decides what constitutes a "dipshit"? I have read many posts here and come to my own conclusions about what people are like that I haven't met yet. But, does that make me an expert? No, a message board by definition is a place to "post" your thoughts, ideas, and have discussions. If you dont like someone's takes, put them on ignore, or do what we should have all been taught as little children, just ignore them.

IMO ... the best way to control your experience yourself;

*scroll past what you don't want to read
*don't read threads that don't appeal
*when responding avoid getting to personal unless both sides are familiar/comfortable with the exchange
*apologize when it is the right thing to do and avoid "thoughtless" post that you might regret (how many differnet logins can you keep track of otherwise)
*save your rage/anger/emotions for serious stuff, keep things in proper perspective.


Sorry if this sounds a little to "mature" but as a previous poster indicated - there are a lot of us 40-60 group, a group with a vast wealth of knowledge and resources by the way, and unfortunately maturity is one of things that life kind of forces on you if you want to get beyond offering fries with the burger.

One veteran privately expressed reservations about playing for a team undergoing such a massive rebuilding project during one of the final seasons of his career.

But Herm Edwards said he was getting a different message.

“I’ve spoken to a lot of those guys before this even took place, way back to when the season was over,” Edwards said. “They anticipated what was going to happen. I’ve spoken to them since it happened, since after the draft. They’re excited. They really are. It’s just the first day of school, so everyone’s excited, but there’s a different demeanor.

I think a lot of the angst lately stems from having to live through an offseason when our team's in the shitter, personally.

You don't help DA when you play the part of Bob Dole's ass kisser in chief instead of a mod.

I posted there a few times and found several KU haters so I didn't stay. But I could probably make it work.

You know what's ironic Skip is the typical KU alum wouldn't even talk to your old redneck ass unless it was to instruct you on where to put the dish.

So what's the problem?



The problem is why should one pay in general, because I can go to other BB's c, and I can get the same experience. This bullshit reeks of self entitlement by creating a separate forum for "paying customers".

Brian has not been around enough to keep the n00bs in check and/or educated on the ways of the Planet, KCWolfman has had a lot changes in his life, Hawaiian has been awol for way too long, along with Mr. Blond. Mr. Fax got a deal on Triscuits.

For being an 04 semi-noob you seem to have the basics down pretty well.

BTW, if'n you anyone knows hot to get ahold of KCWolfman (other than Frazod's wife) puch him inna' nuts for me...

I know I've incurred the wrath of all you ACLU-HELP-HELP-I'M-BEING-OPPRESSED types, but if you are not (a) an absolute troll, (b) a jerk who is only here to anger or belittle others, or (c) an infantile moron who is too stupid to know when to shut up, nothing I have proposed would affect you in the slightest. Are you any of these things? No? So what's the problem?

Being that I fall under both B and C I'll be filing suit and sending around 14 irritating emails a day.

I also plan to give your cat fiber pills.

You have been warned...

You honestly can't put a price tag on the quality of dis-info-tainment the planet provides.

$50 a year to rid me of the nagging negatives and add a few positives?

In a heartbeat...


How is $50 gonna rid you of the negatives? How are you going to stop anyone who you thinks brings a negative from paying their $50 and still be there to annoy you? You can't. Only thing you will be getting is a loss of $50. Hell, you won't won't even get a reciept to show you spent $50.

What you think will happen, is you will only have these certain individuals who you consider friends only ponying up the bones for a subforum that will have pretty much the same content but recieve less traffic and less dialogue than what is already here. I can't see any other reason to put this pay forum idea in the "Hey ya'll watch this" type thinking category. Instead of "hey ya'll watch this" though, it will be "hey'ya'll watch me blow $50 on absolutely nothing". Brilliant! That'll show em.

If this site has anypay on there where others are off on their on forum section, this site will be dead like the last game of the year for the Royals. Few stragglers out there, but not enough to make any kinda noise.

I don't think it's it's a good idea, but who the **** am I?

I think 'zod should be a mod. He seems passionate enough about this place to make sure a-holes aren't allowed to run roughshod all over the place.

Exactly what crap are you looking to filter that you can't personally do yourself now?

I'm extremely tolerant of the crap, so it's not a huge deal either way. I don't use ignore much because there are very few people that add nothing to the board, even if there are several who don't add their value very often.

The crap would be stuff in the broad category of "not this sh*t again".... personal attacks & board rivalries (which are hard to avoid, because they can go on for pages), old one-liners (minor annoyance), spinoff threads such as the "keep f***ing doubting..." phase (hasn't happened in a while that I can remember, but very annoying and unavoidable), the attention-whoring dramaqueen stuff such as rep and tags (threads started for those purposes are easily ignored, but it's harder to avoid when it's a hijacked thread).

I know over time the mods here have gotten to a point where they don't want to be part of a board where they're always the bad person, so I think a seperate forum with relatively clear expectations regarding trolling, attention whoring, personal attacks, etc; could work for those who don't want all the drama.

This board is run by controversy, drama, and humor. I know because I get many more responses out of humor and assinine arguments about Lew Perkins than I do when I make a good point (or maybe my points aren't as good as I think they are :shrug: ); and a lot of the best posts from others get buried to make room for the hijackings/attacks/attention whoring.

Again, if it bothered me all that much, I wouldn't be here at all.... I'm mostly curious why people are against it (because, again, it wouldn't even have to require payment). The reason we created DC was because the over-the-top political arguments were too much for many members... Why not have a second playground?

Your location certainly seems accurate - comprehension and you are clearly far, far apart.

You WOULDN'T have to pay. Just as I'm sure you don't now. Continue to enjoy the free ride on other people's dime. Have a ball.

You've stated that you're in the "just a website" camp. If so, why do you give a shit if there's another forum filled with us imaginary internet people talking about our imaginary things? For something that doesn't matter to you, you sure are crying awfully loud, Mr. Nobody. Is your sense of entitlement so great that you feel like you need to monitor everything we say to each other? Shall I copy you on all my PMs? The last time I was in Jefferson City, Rausch bought my wife and I dinner. Since that meeting cost money and you couldn't passively eavesdrop, I assume you don't approve. Or maybe you'd feel better if I posted a transcript that Sedated or ChiefaRoo could sling poo at. :shake:

The fact that you wouldn't outright permaban him (he doesn't deserve such a fate, IMO) speaks volumes. I think you'd make a great mod. You'd certainly take out the Bronco LB 52 trash when it hits.

The only person I'd ban immediately is NY58. I continue to be amazed that he hasn't been purged.
