Premium also makes all the ads go away.
If there is a specific section of the site you feel is out of date, please bring it to our attention in the feedback forum. a "hey, X game has Y now, but your database doesn't" is typically enough to get the ball rolling. Newer games with more staff assigned to them typically recieve more content manager time. We also recently cut staffing hours in several areas due to several reasons, so some older games and forum query response times may be longer than they have been historically.
The decision was made from a management perspective to shift many of the traditional forum premium features to non premium in an effort to increase forum readership and induce ad revenues.
Premium membership also funds the salaries of the content managers, forum administrators, server hardware, bandwidth, etc. Admittedly that is somewhat of an intenagible benifit at times, however I like to think it is a significant one.
We're open to ideas if anyone has specifics they would like to see for premium membership. We've kicked around ideas such as turning the image upload function into a generic file hosting solution, a "pay per karma reset to 3.00" button, etc.
We should have some sort of contest. Best new idea for a premium thingy gets at least 2 days worth of free premium (since thats all I can apply at a time personally) or somethign like that.
To the OP who left forever. On the off chance you read this, PM me what needs looked at and I'll find out a status on it for you.
What the **** are you going to do with two days worth of premium? Oh boy, I can have a temporary avatar, a journal which the content of will be lost, and disable adblock (Hypothetically. The ads aren't obnoxious enough to bother with blocking) for two days.
At any rate, as I'm such a great guy, I'll do some research/do your jobs for you and bring back some suggestions.
