New options being added
In response to get some action going again in the AAG section and on the site in general, I'm putting the final tests on a new addition for our "regular users"

Ideally we'd like to have as many Premium Members as possible on the site (for $10/year) to help support the site,etc.

In response to some suggestions, I'm creating a new "Semi-Premium" usergroup that will have access to the following features on the site.

- increased PM storage space to 200 (Regular users have 60,Paid Premium members have 400)

- access to the GAGT Arcade games (a fun way to waste time)

- access to create new threads in the Almost Anything Goes section

So what's in it for the $10/year Premium Members?

- PM storage space of 400
- Access to the Arcade
- Create new threads in AAG
- Create/maintain a Garage where you can post pictures/mods/info about your ride.
- Helping support a site that you probably waste way too many hours of your life on anyway..might as well help keep it alive

How does it work?
The change over will be fully automated, but there are certain criteria that must be met in order to automatically bump to the next level.

Users must be registered for at least 30 days on the forum and have a post count higher than 20*

I should be putting this in place in the next day or so once I polish it off and make sure it's doing what I want it to.

Any questions, lemme know.

*these stipulations are subject to change at my leisure if we see a bunch of moron filler posts to get you upto the required level

Sounds good. Any plans on having a, say, $20/yr membership that comes with a tshirt or stickers or something?

JRYAN34 01-16-2010 06:38 PM

whooooo hooo stickers!

PhantomLover007 01-17-2010 01:17 AM

Can we get the T-shirts and stickers like this..

w/ a Pontiac arrowhead in the top right corner. Put it on the left chest of the shirt. IDK what we could put on the back.. lol. Would anything be needed there?

even just generic "" stickers would be a good idea... free advertising for the site IRL.

New usergroup has been put into effect. If you meet the qualifications, you should be in blue now.

Jeremy 01-18-2010 12:38 PM

Check it again. Missed a permissions section. Should be good to go now.

Vegeta 01-18-2010 12:46 PM

your Paid Premium Membership expired 12/9/09 chief :doh:

Jeremy 01-18-2010 03:55 PM

Just to clarify any confused members (not pointing out names here), but here's how it works.

Right now when you register, you go into the "registered" users group. When you hit the 30 day/20 post level, you will bump up automatically to the blue "Semi-Premium member" level. Here you get some added treats on the site. Yellow is the place to be, but costs you a few bucks a year. Yellow is the full paid Premium Membership.

If you are a Premium Member now, when your yearly paid membership expires, you will revert back to a regular user or you will get elevated again to a blue Semi-Premium member depending on the 30/20 rule.

got it?
