    I agree...and it would feel so good knowing that society's freeloaders couldn't log on.

    And I agree ... they can go start their own site ... wait, I guess they can't; it costs money!

    great idea

    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 copied alum81's quote from the "Illegal Pitch" thread.

    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.

    I sent $50 , I'm law enforcement , not rich, but I use RP daily and cant go a day without my fix. As a cajun alumn, I would pay whatever.. $12 fee for a year is chicken feed but a great idea. Most of us on this board pay more for beer, scotch or nice cigar..

    Isn't that always the case? Some people ask the question "What are you going to do for me today?" every day without ever offering to contribute in any way to others.

    Thank you very much, we have received $1180 so far.

    Your kindness is humbling.

    A B@tching fee assessment. Then RP could compete with the Powerball.

    You're gonna turn this thread into a ____ show. You know Turbine's stance on politics and keeping this an open site. It's getting old.

    Start your own forum and you can make the rules is my point. The only disadvantages to it being a free site is the ability to pay, which is why he has the yearly fundraisers. He has complete control over the forum and can deal with trolls and bad posts as he sees fit. Y'all are turning this thread into something that it is not intended to be.
