Heidi, I have always said I'd pay!!! I pay for a couple gaming sites I frequent, this one is just as valuable for me. It is not a lot, but usually premium memberships are like a few bucks a month (up to 6.00 a month depending on features and benefits)

I think we would lose a lot of members if ABN required a fee to access the site. However, I'm wondering if skins are a "one time" expense or a recurring one? Depending on HOW much it cost, I might be willing to chip in to get "Malicious" back!!

I'm getting used to the new format, though...wow, this must have been a LOT of work!!! Hats off, Dean and crew!

I have a real problem with all the bitching going on about the new look. Dean and Heidi let all of us know in advance that they needed to make a server move. They also let us know numerous times that the move was a big one and would take time to get everything back and running. We all enjoy this site for free but many fail to realize the cost of keeping it up and running. Server moves are a huge expense but Dean works hard so ABN can offer fantastic marketing avenues.

Please everyone, have a little patience. Both Dean and Heidi have put in tons of hours the past week. I hate to see the negativity displayed in this thread. Put yourself in their shoes.

Looks like Santa and his elves are getting a jumpstart on a new look, Wow! Cool deals. How did you know I was painting the inside of the house? LOL Now everything has a fresh new color :) Haven't been here long enough to find all the new stuff, but I'll seek it out! Good stuff I'm sure.

I'm liking it now that I'm finally figuring out the navigation. This plain skin is a lot easier on my poor eyes!!

Kudos, ya'll!!!

I was not bitching...in fact, I found your post to be the first negative one Mora, sorry. I think people are just musing, giving opinions and getting used to it. Sometimes that means talking....sometimes that means voicing how you feel.

I did not take anything anyone said badly hopefully Dean and Heidi are pretty mature and knew that already though.

I would happily pay for this site, sign me up.
