    Titanium the only way?

    Is there any way to post in the For Sale section without getting a Titanium Membership? I won't pay a yearly fee to only sell things on here from time to time, and I have no desire for the special forum either. Are the red stars on the way back?

    No, not at this time. Titanium is the only premium membership being offered. It is on sale righjt now at half price for the year, though and we're looking into some other bennies, hopefully very soon.

    Yep. I just purchased premium membership assuming that that was the red star. But no, I have my own yellow jersey and another version of foo.

    Yeah, and it only lasts a year. So you paid however much for little to nothing in return. I can sell things on Ebay for much much cheaper than $25. I really see no benefit to the Titanium membership.

    Then you're doing right by not paying the $25. Congratulations, you've just identified the inherently subjective nature of value assessment.

    Actually, for the rest of the month, it's $12.50 for the year. Read the announcement here: There is a coupon code included.

    I don't remember asking you anything. Why do you feel the need to say anything, especially without saying anything useful?

    Any way of putting something on the screen where you select the membership to say (a) that this is for titanium membership and (b) there is a coupon? That way other people might not get double-suckered like I did.

    Look up at the top of every forum and you'll see the Global Announcement, same place I had put our happy New Year and Christmas massages.

    Why do you say "And more!"? If you're trying to sell membership, wouldn't it make sense to be as overt and forthcoming as possible with the membership benefits? Seems to me that you can never have too many benefits associated with membership...

    If I decide not to renew my titanium membership, will I still have my red star?

    Yes, just remind Tom that you'd like your red star back.

    And more means future benefits to be announced. We're developing other benefits, currently.

    I'm not really at liberty to say more though, at this time.

    Grumpy Pig, I can set your red star as a secondary group, to preserve it. I'll take care of that right now.

    Thanks.

    $1.04/month was too good to pass up.
