    Tell Me More About Apolyton Plus

    Is it really worth it. I've been thinking of throwing a little support polys way, but what are the most convincing reasons for me to subscribe.

    See the testimonials: http://apolyton.net/members/?action=test

    In summary, most important advantages:

    1) You're supporting the site
    2) The whole site becomes faster to use
    3) No ads -- pop-up, redirect, banner or otherwise
    4) Bigger avatar (if you care about that)

    As for myself, as a heavy PM user, I'll add that I absolutely love the extra PM storage space and the higher maximum length of PMs.

    Plus Markos keeps adding more 'minor' features on a regular basis (see http://apolyton.net/forums/showthrea...hreadid=116530)

    By far the biggest selling point is that you will be helping Poly.

    Aside from that, you will not be subjected to ads ever again.
    Larger avatar.
    Not subject to load limits to the extent that non-subscribed people are.
    Not subject to flood control.

    These are some of the benefits that I find really nice, but of course there are many more.

    Yeah I went ahead


    Any chance we can change the supporter/inmate tag to something unique any time soon?

    It certainly would be neat if there was a PHP script or something to generate custom title bars.

    Though we do already have avatars.

    I was going to do this until I looked at the price

    And the only reason I wanted to do it was for the larger avatar .

    I just feel the lifetime membership is waaay too high a price.

    But if he happens to die next week...

    On the other hand, if he died next week its not like he would need the money anyway.

    I'm considering to sign it too, but I'm having some financial problems right now, so perhaps I'll do in the next year...
    I watched you fall. I think I pushed.

    I didnt get a lifetime membership. I picked a less expensive option to see if I like the difference.

    For any question there are usually hundreds of reasons to say no; but, no matter how convincing your reason is to you, saying no to PLUS is a losing choice. Not having the money is the only exception, but there, you didn't have a choice anyway. And, really, making up things to be afraid of is just pathetic and so very sad.

    Come on in; you will enjoy life in Stepford.

    A better response is that of course you wont lose interest in Civ.

    entirely possible. I'm not real intersted at the moment, however. But I'm addicted to this place. I'll never leave
