One of the ideas we have to pay for the cost of streaming and providing a website is to come up with an enhanced member account. As part of the enhanced member account we would offer pop3/web based email addresses and storage for a small website.

The question is simple, which address would you prefer as an email/web site address.

Here are a few details on the enhanced account as it stands now. The enhanced account will only cost a few dollars a month and it will have everything from increased storage space for messages, up to 15 requests per day, 25 presets, up to 50 mass PM, enhanced journal, email, webspace and a custom group icon to acknowledge your member status. Enhanced accounts will also automatically be enrolled in any CD giveaways, contests and will receive priority support. All of these services will be accessible from your control panel.

Will this be optional or will this be manditory??

Some people I know that are members are having extreme financial difficulty and could not afford to pay even a few dollars a month.

There will always be the free standard account. The enhanced account will have additional features currently not offered.

Hey MacFive, I'll probably do the enhanced account to help support the station, but I really don't need the Email/webspace (I manage several websites and own a small webhosting service). Can I donate those resources to a member with a regular standard account who can use them, but doesn't have the bucks for the enhanced service?

Mac this web site is the place I come to listen to music, sit back, share stories, complain, and fall off my chair sometimes laughing. I cant see any reason not to join in the enhanced member accounts. Keep up the good work.

Maisky I can rub your back. Im not a therapist but I used to play one on TV king.gif

It might be kinda difficult to track peoples accounts if you decide to donate your webspace to someone else. You probably dont want them in your account. I'll think about it and see what we come up with.

Hmm, back rubs.....I'll think about that one too! biggrin.gif

Sounds fair, it depends on what "a few dollars a month" is. Remember that you are talking to a lot of Scotts! My pennies cry from being pinched so hard. smilie_tux.gif

The price will be very inexpensive. I can't imagine it being more than $2.99 a month. It could be less if we get more members to sign up. Maybe as low as $1.50 a month. I'll be honest with you. My intention is not to profit from the enhanced member accounts. My goal would be to generate between $300-$500 a month to pay for a dedicated server and to pay for the bandwidth needed to stream.

Maybe someday I will open up a CD store or sell T-shirts, but my short term goals are to find a way to make this site pay for itself. Plus if we were on a dedicated server the pages and graphics would load super fast!!

It will take months to get everything together, but knowing which domain people want will help me decide how to configure it all.

In addition to paying monthly, could you also enable a quarterly or yearly payment? Speaking for myself it would be easier to budget a year at a time, rather then month to month.

Paul:

Thank you for the opportunity to provide feedback.

Paying for this service is really not an issue IF many of your technical troubles could be overcome. These include the drop-offs of connections and the overloading of your server. As far as web-hosting is concerned, most folks already have more e-mail and related services than thy will ever need.

If you seek to attain additional revenue other than your sponsors, can I suggest connections with XM radio or other cable music services as part of their package.

A more technically-reliable music service interests me more than additional e-mail or the like. I can hardly keep up with the work e-mail now.

Something to consider.

Kind Regards!

Tom

I agree with several here, more E-mail and web space is really the last thing I need. Howver, something like this sounds like a good way to support CRN. It would be nice if there were some nice, worthwhile perks to go along with it. Not sure right off the top of my head on ideas though.

Being only slightly more relational than a lurker, I'd have to say that the e-mail, extra PM's, etc. would be of no real value to me. To be honest, I'd rather pay an exorbitant price for a really cool t-shirt to support the site.

Thanks for working to take it to another level.
