New VIP membership, good idea?

I'm looking at introducing a VIP membership which will have acess to exclusive reveals, exclusive deals from Topps, Panini and Futera, it will also have extra special VIP only competitions. I will also intend to have FCF exclusive cards only available to VIP members (possibly from manufacturers).

The invisaged cost would be about 7.99 a year membership only - 14.99 for membership including exclusive cards

It would still be free to be a normal member with access to all other sections

Existing members would get VIP membership free for first 12 months and possibly beyond but would need to pay for cards.

Would you be interested in becoming a VIP member?

EDIT: Probable cost would be 4.99 for VIP plus a similar amount for exclusive cards which would be optional. Standard membership would be free.

I like the idea of a membership really but it would not be fair to other members *ahem* foreigners and the reason of that is how do we pay and the currency of it. If I'm not wrong, VIP membership may get other people very jelous.
For example, if there is a competition only for the VIP members and they are allowed to enter, it's not fair for the others.
This is my opinion and I think the forum should be kept that way. Alot of members already and probably it might get them to leave if they feel that something is not right in here.
But I understand your decision in which you make of the VIP

So it's just for earning money? :doh

I said it's my opinion- don't like websites who are free then change and have memberships only to earn money. I like the way this forum works right now and the way it is to all members having equal statuses for everyone and that it is fair to all members in Asia, Europe, America, and other places.

One thing I do know is that Tollyman would not take one single penny for himself from this forum and any money raised would be for the benefit of the forum itself.

One advantage of having VIP membership is that it stops idiots registering with the sole intention of causing problems on the forum as they have nothing better to do with their time.

I think people are misunderstanding the whole idea of a VIP board. It does not mean 'everyone' has to pay, it means there would be a board IN ADDITION to the current forum with incentives for members who join, they are the only people who would have to pay anything and it would be by choice not force.

There would not be more power for people who donate more as it would all be at set prices determined beforehand.

If people bought VIP's it means much more competitions which should be held just for VIP's IMO.

Because if we are paying for membership and funding the forum for prizes - we should be provided with the competition.

if there is a fee i would probaly stop coming on this forum. plus if there is a fee to pay u will lose members and the forum will be less popular and if it get's less popular nobody will come on coz they want to share fakes and trade not have to pay every year to show people fake cards and stuff like that

I am not sure if having a membership would result in being a boost to this forum but I think if you are to have a membership you could at least lower the price a bit. If you look at it from one point of view, a child asking his/her mum/dad if he/she would like to spend 15/7 pound on a membership to a forum, you can bet 9/10 times that he/she would say no. On the other side, if the parent looked at the benefits of it, she might reconsider and think 'yes'. If are going to launch this membership, at least put the price down a little- EG- 10 for the premium membership and 5 for the standard membership. Thinking of the amount of trades going on right now (hundreds), and the amount that will be going on if you launch the membership (thousands???), it may help other FCF users/ new collectors complete their collections. You could add extra VIP only topics which can have special deals and offers only for membership card holders. Or maybe a password which VIP's could type in to get a seperate thread/forum where they could chat.
Thanks for reading, MAM101.

No, I mean VIP membership (the 7/14) not the standard membership.

Can I ask a question with no maliciousness intended,
People said that the money would go to the forum but just say 200 people buy a full membership @4.99/5 x 200 = 998, what could you spend it on?
( also if you joined on a different forum-hosting website you could earn revenue from advertising.)

We all wanted to know that.

I don't get why there was any need to post that.
