    Yes, if I had a credit card. I try to keep my hair out of credit card debt.

      Depends on the price, but I wouldn't mind it.

        Yup, as long as we're not talking megabucks I'm in.

          Yes, but no CC.

          ACK!
          Don't try to confuse the issue with half-truths and gorilla dust!

            Price must be right.

            I think that opinion in the United States is decidedly different from the rest of the world because we have a free press -- by free, I mean a virgorously presented right wing point of view on the air and available to all.- Ned

              given this initial trend, examples of the right price seem to be needed

                maybe $5 a month? With perhaps 2000 active participants, what is that, 10k a month? though of course, what happens to lurkers? Of course, if real money comes in, Markos might be able to get a better server.

                  perhaps we've not said it enough times: people will always be able to use apolyton for free

                  we are discussing giving the option to pay for ad-free browsing and possibly other services

                    Well, since this is a business decision on your part, Mark, you'll need to set the price. I think we all want this to be a good deal for you, too. I'm probably as addicted to this site as much as to Civ after all.

                    Thanks for the poll. This should give you some idea of the needed price to make this a go.

                    so long and thanks for all the fish

                      Voted "yes if the price is right", but that mainly concerns international transaction fees. I don't feel like giving to the bank as much money as I give to 'Poly. If there is a donation in Euros, I'll see no problem with paying 5 a month

                        Yes, if the price is right. I'd be willing to pay a once-a-year fee.
                        What?

                          Would Staff members get a discount

                          But seriously... just tell me how much and how often and I will give you a credit card number

                          Oh... and a once a year fee makes more sense than billing more often for a shorter time frame.

                            I'd base it on what an average poster generates in income for the site.

                              eh, make that to NOT include lurkers and settlers. The money makers would the warlord+ people, I think.
