Club FTE Pricing Changes (EDIT: PLEASE SEE "WHERE'S MY SWAG" STICKY THREAD)

Hi Folks.


We have decided to change the pricing structure for our Club FTE memberships.

Previously, a Silver Membership was for one year, and a Gold Membership for three--including a site swag item (T-shirts, etc).

We've decided to also make a new Silver+ Membership which will be an annual membership just the same, but with the inclusion of the current site-swag item, which we plan to update annually.
This membership will cost $29.99.

As the other memberships will not change, the addition of this new membership is for members looking to receive the swag package without opting into the 3-year Gold Membership.

Please take a look here: https://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/payments.php

So instead of the 60 bucks for 3-years I've been paying TO FREELY CONTRIBUTE here and help your site grow, it's now going to cost me 50% more at 90 bucks for the same 3-years TO FREELY CONTRIBUTE here and help your site grow? Nice way to screw over those that help you the most.

While the swag stuff is cool if I renew my paid membership I'd much prefer NO AD's rather than "fewer ads".

Sure ads help support FTE a bit but if I'm paying more I expect less---does that make sense?

A lot of hype with little real incentive to ****** up the "gold" package, IMHO anyway.

The advertising layout stays the same, just the text ads in the header for both Silver and Gold memberships.

50% price increase for the gold membership??!! Good luck with getting people to renew after their gold membership expires. I like to help out but this is just too much.

I'll be downgrading to the silver membership if I decide to renew under these new changes. The incentive for gold just isn't worth it anymore.

Well I was going to send some money and join but I think I'll hold off now.
What is the reasoning for the change?
I guess I should have done it at the beginning of the year when I thought about it.

Well I'm done after my membership expires. I actually wish I hadn't renewed now after seeing this cash-grab.

Gonna' have to think long and hard about renewing at all.

What's it been, 15 years or so since I became a paid member?

Gonna' have to re-think this one, as the benefit won't seem to be there any more.

Nice, since I always did the 3-year plan I guess I'm good with this.

Now I know why my wife bitches and moans so much...it really does work!

I gotta agree. Keeping the same price but adding options for those that want more swag is a win win! Gotta give props to Jose and IB for listening and going back to the old pricing structure, but still offering more stuff!

alloro, look at it as constructive feedback. Not from your wife ( ), I mean from us users here at FTE

Men don't bitch and moan. We give constructive feedback with logic and positive determination.

I disagree.

You guys had an idea to add swag and alter the pricing structure accordingly. You received feedback (ie, logic and positive determination posts from men ) where you discovered the majority would rather have the same pricing with an option to add swag, so you adjusted accordingly.

Not adjusting and turning a deaf ear would have been the goof.

Thanks Jose!
