I didn't even notice it. I guess I'm too busy reading the actual thread index.

With 50,000 members that's probly why it's so cheap
If there were more supporting members then the cost of a subscription would probly
come down?

I don't think £30.00 a year is expensive personally and yes you should give subscribers more perks and maybe give the Mods a few more perks too,they do everything they do for nothing After all if it weren't for them keeping the forum running,
How many non members wouldn't get the desperate advice they need????

That would be a great Idea to give couples two for the price of one membership


I think it would be a great Idea to introduce a lower subscription,for members who
want to support the site but can't afford the full outlay.
Maybe they could have half price subscription,with a few extra perks and extra points each week,but maybe a seperate private room for them but no access to the premier
lounge??they could be called supporting members?


There does seem to be a lot of members willing to support the site but can't afford
the full outlay?

There's a three-month subscription for $19.50, with full perks, which many members have taken advantage of.

Makes me feel good too.

How can we complain about something that's free? If we want more perks, we join, it's very fair.

Well said

i think its very fair that paying members have more perks then the rest. it more of a thank you from the site so to speak. even though they thank us all for the advise weather were paying members or not . and the site wouldnt be so good without the members who dont pay. we all do our part to make this site what it is . who cares if we cant change our username??
i love this site. and buying things for people with there points is something i have only just known about , when someone sent me my first gift( thanx rosie) and it made me feel really happy.
once i have the money i would love to become a paying member , but not because of the *PERKS* because this is 1 of the best fourms i have ever joined up with.
and i have never noticed when new members have joined lol , i dont even know who are paying ones and who are not . but it wouldnt make any difference to me weather someone paid , or weather they didnt.
we all come here to help others with advice , or get help and advice for outselfs when needed , or just for a chat. to me that is the biggest perk not the points system.

Don't ever forget that it's members like you that make this the wonderful site it is. Kudos to you and the rest of you - paying or non-paying - for being here.

The support that I have received when one of my kitties was ill, and the friendships that I have make here ... are priceless.
vbplaza is just a perk that is fun but not really that important.
TCS is important to all of us.

Very well said, my sentiments exactly If I didn't have TCS when
Bella was sick and then when she passed I would have surely gone out of my mind. I treasure my friends here so much

Well said! I post on a few other cat sites, and have often witnessed the members being very "catty" towards others. That's a rarity here, thank goodness. TCS members rock!!

Puff is the sweetest most angelic boy! He's soooo pretty you'd just want to kiss that sweet little face of his!

I agree with the site being one of the best just because the people actually care and we are all here for the same reason. The love of cats and the welfare of animals in general. It doesn't matter to me if someone is a paying member or not. We all share something special which makes us each unique.

If I can't keep up my payments (sounds like a loan ) or just forget, then I lose my perks. No biggy. I can still come to TCS and find some interesting posts.

I'm still amazed at the entirety of this site and how well-run it is. Kudos to TCS!
