Nobody mentioned a special thread, you have now alerted the non-subscribers to the babes thread.

Give more prizes and/or incentives to subscribers; it can be in a form of a physical one (t-shirt, mugs, etc.) or a virtual one (discount to software, vouchers for a online store), but tech related. Also it helps getting the felling that when subscribing to Neowin, you are subscribing to a site, not only helping covering the costs but getting a great service that pays off.

Also just saw the subscriptions available now: they are very similiar, having very small diferences; i think they should be more broad and it's the diferences that give them more value.

also a wacky sugestion: a 99 tier that, for every post that subscriber does an automated post is added saying "best intelligent post ever!" or "yes...yes i agree with this post!".

I'm a subscriber, have been for a few years but won't be renewing again, purely on the fact I don't get anything back, but there is nothing to get back in all honesty. I don't really use Neowin a great deal these days anyway.

Being a subscriber and getting a free tshirt is a good idea, but I wouldn't wear it, or I would but I'd still wear my shirts over the top.

I honestly think you should just keep it as it is.

Prehaps get rid of the different levels of subscriber, so it's just 1 level at ?15 a year?

How about the ability to disable the curse word filter? I don't mind seeing **** , **** , etc. IMO, this should be a non-subscriber option.

The original words don't actually get stored.

They get replaced by asterisks on the fly upon writing the entry to disk.

No need to.

I know the answer:

lack of boobie threads in the secret area that doesn't exist...

Once again, I need every non-subscriber involved to look this way please...

I've struggled with this for years. I really can't think of one reason for me to become a subscriber other than to help the site.

Well I think it would be nice if the Free users like me was allowed to create a blog. Just saying.

I'm afraid this won't be an option as Neowin is discontinuing blogs completely.

Personally I'd like the idea of adding my own personal custom background or skin as a Tier2, as a few other people have said, it wouldn't bother me in the slightest that others could or couldn't see it, and I've seen it done on other IPB based forums.

Thinking if we add Darkside on any future version of the site, to be a subscriber only feature.

If you add darkside, to the homepage/articles as well, I'll sub in a heart beat. I can't stand black text on white background..

I dislike the 10min idea.. I read most of the articles from the clicking the links in the IRC.. if I get a 'You need to wait 10min before you can view...' I probably won't bother returning to it.. Subs are supposed to be bonuses for people that pay, not a handycap for those that don't imho.
