Bike forum subscription

Is there any other options for me to subscribe other than the $25 every 32 year thing? $25 is a little too steep for a one time payment for me(yeah, i'm a cheapskate). Cutting the cost in half for 8-10 years or $5 every 3 years would work for me, too.

It would actually yield more money that way, operator, and encourages kids like me who doesnt pick money from trees lessen the load a bit. Unless thats not possible with the current set-up.

I was actually ready to order a subscription but was a bit disheartened when there was only one option, and one that I couldnt afford at the moment. I really would like to contribute since I've asked many questions here before. I was actually expecting a yearly $5-$10 cost and I would have been fine with that.

I may be changing the subscription model in the near future. Until then, we are stuck with the $25 for life option only.
