So...where are we? The few still have to carry the many?! Damn
I know Turbine wants it to be an open site.....so how about in order to post you pay $1/month. If you want to browse the threads as a guest it's fine...but in order to post you pay an annual fee of $12. I doubt there is a noticeable drop in members and if someone decides not to pay the $12 they probably don't contribute anything worthwhile anyway.
$12 × 1,500 members = enough for Turbine to run undoubtedly the best fan forum on the internet
I guess I am missing the need for this to be an "open site". In my opinion, those that don't contribute to fund the site probably have nothing to contribute to its content.
Turb...start a fee.
I heard the reference to Ragin' Pagin today too....and as soon as I heard it I thought about this (Ragin' Pagin Fundraiser) thread.
I sure hope that the handful of members who use Ragin'Pagin as a tool for their professional career are pulling their weight when it's time to help Turbine.

Turbine...read the Alden Report...then you will probably go immediately to a paid site.
Just chipped in a little more. Thanks Turb for all you do!
Thank you very much, we have received $1180 so far.
Your kindness is humbling.
Alden said we need a student fee ... or a website fee ... whichever applies ... he said.
A B@tching fee assessment. Then RP could compete with the Powerball.
