Default Revamp of donation scheme
Hi All,

As you know, MTS2 is a free site, and survives on donations and subscriptions from member and some ad revenue. We've been running this way for 2 and and a half years now, and I feel it's time to give something back to those that contribute through subscriptions.

We've revamped the subscriptions to reduce it down to 3. These are:

MTS2 Supporter - $5 a month. Increased PM inbox to 125 messages.
MTS2 Fan Club - $10 a month. Increased avatar size to 100x100 with a 65k filesize. Increased PM inbox to 150 messages.
MTS2 Addict - $15 a month. Increased avatar size to 110x110 with a 65k filesize. Increased PM inbox to 200 messages. One time custom title of your choice.

All subscribers get the following:
- Ads free option
- Simolean icon (colour based on level)
- Subscriber only fileserver (see below)

Coming soon, all subscribers will also get access to a secondary fileserver, which will provide faster downloads for them during peak hours.

Please note that if you cancel your subscription you revert back to a normal member and lose any bonuses, and access to the extra fileserver.

I'd also like to point out that just becuase we have subscribers doesn't mean we'll restrict content to subscribers only - we have never done that and never will. All content on MTS2 is free, and it's only through the kind and generous donations of the supporters that we stay open, so this is for you all - thank you!

Regards
Delphy and the MTS2 Staff

Heh, the special file server will be nice. I would have subscribed specially for that perk, if I hadn't already done so :D

Thanks, for the little perks but I also subscribe because I believe this is the best sims 2 site out there. I might actually try to make a few things myself (scary thought for this computer dumb 45 year old)

Wonderful news Delphy! I suscribed to support the fabulous work you guys do. The downloads are amazing, and your tutorials and game help are lifesavers!

Thank you for the extra perks! :D

"one time custom title" hmmm. That alone is worth the top level... Thanks so much for all you do to keep this site up and running, you and all the staff here. Excellent incentives for donations, too.

If you're not having fun, you're not doing it right.
SO much to do and so many other things to distract me.

Over the months, and now years, I have paid much more in monthly payments to MTS2 than I have spent on the Sims2 games.

It is worth every nickel, dime, simolean. Without this site, the Sims would have soon been languishing in my shelf. Bravo! Keep up the good work!

Thanks, Delphy! That custom title thing makes me really want to be a 15 dollar supporter. Sadly, I am only 13 and can't manage to support the site, but I think I may get around there somehow You deserve every penny of donation money given to the site! Where would the Sims 2 be without MTS2? Where would Maxis be?

Good idea, when I read the first part I assumed that they would be getting special items and was a little mad, but I think this system is much better . It's a great way to reward people for supporting MTS2 without restricting everyone else.

Thanks Delphy! I would support this site with or without the perks, because I believe it to be the absolute best Sims 2 site on the planet. However, it's nice to be recognized.

If I were to change from a 5.00 donator to a 10.00 donator, how would I go about doing that without turning into a 15.00 donator? Just add another 5.00 donator option or is there a way to remove the 5.00 donator option and just add a 10.00 donation option?

Thanks

Have a great week!

Couldn't you just cancel your 5.00 subscription and sign up for the 10.00?

Love the site - I have donated in the past but I think a subscription makes a lot more sense.

Certainly, if it offers that. I've actually never checked into cancelling it so I wouldn't even know how to begin. Also, I believe that you must cancel when you are ready to upgrade, but making sure the date it falls on is a date you'll have funds available, which is why I'd rather not accidentally cancel it just yet. I'd like to only risk cancelling when I know I can resubscribe

I hope it's not a problem I'd prefer to ask in advance on the topic.

Thanks for the idea. Sounds feasible to me so long as it doesn't interrupt any current support payments.

Thank you again!

The best would be a "change subscription to..." choice, I dont know if it is possible.

Um... you might wish you hadn't said that. Or has the age restriction been relaxed now?

#23 Old 9th Oct 2006 at 9:08 AM
Default I don't think I can change it, only add or cancel and redo?

I'd like to try that but I don't think that is one of the options.

I'm looking again to see if I can figure it out.

Looks like I'd have to add yet another 5.00 a month or cancel and do a 10.00 a month subscription. I think that's my only alternatives so I think I might have to wait.

I don't see an option to change.

Great idea though, thank you!

EDIT: Please note I am an addict of MTS2, I just can't afford the title! lol
