same with gold i could have and still could quite easily get lifetime if i wanted too ive been here a year now and pay £3 a month only £8 off a lifetime membership but this site is so usefull i would rather chip in every month and keep it going than loose it even if im here another 2 years ill still stay on the £3 a month scheme i just copy and pasted that from the ftp thread but it got me thinking for people like me who pay monthly and are happy to keep doing so (i dont miss £3 a month) maybe the extra lifetime benefits could be gradually added once a certain amount of money had been paid over time like after 18 months thats £54 altogether then get an lifetime member reward extra. then after 2 years that's £72 paid get another extra etc. just a thought i had really. im going to keep paying monthly to make sure the site keeps going regardless you benefit more from me doing it that way and i dont mind. it would however be nice to get the exra rewards that lifetime members get even if just gradually what you think?
