    Hello Everyone,

    Purchasing a PREMIUM Forum Membership will help meet the rising costs of maintaining the forum and provide you with voice chat, right here at home. I've not worked out all of the particulars yet, everything is open for discussion ... so please let me know how you feel about this.

    Please vote above so i can begin to get a feel for how receptive you are to this idea.

    We are offering voice chat FREE, for a limited time, thereafter the price will be $10.00 per month. You will be able to pay with any credit / debit card and via PayPal, if you don't have a credit card. Details are coming.

    We can use this for so many things !!! Our own LIVE POETRY READINGS ... 24/7 ... noteworthy speakers ... just general chat ... whatever we want ... right here in our own house, with our own Family!

    We have 2 rooms, each can currently hold a capacity of 25. Once there are 25 folk in each room, no one else can get in. Once the FREE period is over, only paying Members will be able to enter, and there will always be space for you.

    Respect, decency and proper consideration to all Members is required, as it is everywhere on our fourm.

    Would you be willing to buy a PREMIUM Membership to help support our forum?

    Is $10.00 / month too much for you?

    How much would you be willing to pay?

    Is it not worth it to you?


    Please be honest with me. Tell me exactly how you feel about being asked to help support the forum when everything has been free up until now. This transition is not an easy one to make and i would like everyone's input. Thanks.

    :heart:

    Destee....

    I think it's a great idea. I was in there with Aqil, Biship, and yourself...and we had a ball. I love it. And, I can't wait until we start holding poetry reading in voice chat. I read a few pieces of poetry and Bishop read one. It was nice. And, playing music with Aqil until 3 am ET was great as well. I loved the music.

    To put a voice with a chatname will be great.

    Thanks for providing this service and I would be willing to pay the $10 per month for this service.

    Wow ... I just had the most wonderful evening. Yes, like Monetary said, Bishop, Aqil and myself hung out tonight. Monetary and Bishop read poetry, Aqil clicked on everything, finding all the new stuff ... :lol: ... Bishop left around midnight. Aqil, Monetary and i played music till just now ... laughed, played music, talked and laughed some more ... Aqil sangggggggg ... oohhhhhh ... he sings so beautifully !!! ... I saw a completely different side of Aqil tonight, after all these years. The night has been so nice, so peaceful ... I had a wonderful time ... thank you gentlemen for celebrating our new voice chat with me ... on it's first night in the house. Thank you for the encouraging words, the hope you've given my heart. I'm forever grateful, you know that.

    Much Love and Peace.

    :heart:

    Hi Destee -

    I would support the forum, and $10 is not too much for me. I am still somewhat new to the community and I think that the forum is very well managed, participation in discussions are insightful, and the topics of discussion are thought provoking. And I want it to remain. So, count me in.
