Sorry, had to throw the Austin Powers in there....tee hee!

any way for Sploof to offer a 'trial membership' for Gold or something...instead of the six-month minimum?? Maybe give them two weeks free and if they don't cancel, then charge them?? I dunno...might work out nicely.

Maybe - I'm sure this works or other sites wouldn;t do it...but I hate to give my credit card number knowing I plan to cancel, knowing I'll probably forget and then be mad at myself!

I was a standard member for the first four months or so, and somehow a couple days there I got gold priveleges in WR's and WP's. After the glitch went away I decided it was much more fun to be gold, and here I am.

Cable TV companies used to give people free access to premium channels like HBO for a week once in a while. Sploofus could give everyone free Gold membership for one or two weeks every few months.

There ya go! Set up an incentive system where non-gold members get gold privileges as prizes - a week for first prize, 4 days second, 2 days third kinda thing.
Excellent idea larry

Oogie I did the same thing. I was non-gold FOREVER; then that glitch happened where we got Gold privileges and decided I couldn't live wihtout more word rounds (maybe a little less dramatic--haha).

I was on about two days and then saw a WordPuzzle I didn't want to miss. Faced with the non-Gold 1-a-week restriction, I paypaled up immediately.

Totally agree that some free gold time would be a good way to hook ore gold members.

I paid up for more wod rounds afterr getting more than the one a week.

I'm with Oogie and FBB.....I used my PayPal membership to become a GM when I got SO tired of being a standard member!

I guess the glitch that allowed ordinary members to sneak in on Gold privileges for a while was the catalyst.

Mr Sploofus.....did you plan that tease, or was it REALLY a glitch, huh...c'mon, 'fess up!

Drawing on one's competitive nature (mine) was the catalyst for my going gold. I think that the idea for a week gold free is a great one! Draw 'em in then lock 'em out and make em' pay..... (mawa hahahahahahahahah) (manical laughter)

Uhhhh... Sploof Gods? You could send out free t-shirts to the Gold members... we could be like recruiters... "Follow us to the Sploof Gold!!!"
