In an effort to find ways to support Das Klub, I am curious about the idea of premium membership. I've thought about this since the beginning of the website being created and currently have "supporters". With this you can see who has viewed your profile.
I don't believe anyone is becoming a supporter on this site just for seeing who viewed their profile. If I found advertisers then I think supporters could get no advertisements.
My question is, what features should be added if you are a supporter/ premium member? Or even, what features should be removed unless you are a supporter/ premium member?
I would probably make it $10-15/ year to have this membership level and need 50 or more people to pay this amount each year. I would give all existing supporters a free year.
Free accounts with basic functionality like having a profile, sending messages and writing to the forum would still exist.
This seems like a practical thing to offer if the features to add are not too complicated or the ones to remove are nice but not essential.
An example premium membership feature could be something like, having the ability to create polls in the forum or having access to a forum section only for premium members.
I am curious about this possibility, please share your opinions.
