I haven't been a member for very long, but I'm familiar with Sploofus and how it works thanks to a former roommate/Sploofus addict. I upgraded to a 6 month Gold membership today at a cost of $15 - well worth it in my opinion. I'd really like to hear the opinions of other Gold and Platinum members on the subject of the 6 month Gold versus the 6 month Platinum membership. What is it about the Platinum that raises the price by more than 266%? Does anyone know how many of those 27169 members are Gold or Platinum? Just idle curiousity...

There are currently 609 Gold members, and 95 Platinum members.

Many newly-upgraded members find great delight in having no ads to bother them, and they enjoy being able to play more Word Puzzles per week, as well as increased turns at Word Rounds/Word Matches.
For those who wish to author quizzes, they can now write quizzes to their heart's content once upgraded.
Many also enjoy being able to post messages into Chat, and being able to PM other members.
Platinum members can create their own avatars.

Sploofus can be VERY addictive, and many new friends are made quite soon.
It seems a natural progression for many keen members to upgrade to Gold or Platinum quite soon after joining.

Being a "free" member seems so limited by comparison once a member ventures into paid membership.

Thanks for responding, Sploofusaurus. After reviewing my posting, my cheeks are quite red over my math error - and on something as simple as percentages, too! It's been a while since my last math class, so I guess I should check my numbers along with my spelling from now on. Correction: the cost of a 6 month Platinum is 3.33 times (I really hope that's right...)the cost of a 6 month Gold. Has anyone ever thought that lowering the price from $50 to maybe $35 or $40 might result in enough new Platinum memberships to make up the difference, and more? Just a little more idle curiousity...

Most of the original Platinum members upgraded their membership as a way of supporting the site when it was badly in need of funding. In addition to the personal avatar, Platinums get virtually unlimited Word Rounds and Word Matches (1000 per hour). That's a major asset to those who most enjoy those games.

Sploofus appreciates the contributions of its members at whatever level they choose to participate.

Non-paying members CAN use the Sploofus Messaging system (send a PM, Private Message), unless that’s changed again. It was mentioned once on the BBS when it opened up. I have received private messages from non-paying members who have a question but can’t find an answer because they cannot post on the BBS or Shout. Maybe fewer use it because they don’t know they can (???).

I went and stayed Platinum because I like the site, I like the vision and enthusiasm of the creator, and I enjoy supporting him!

Sploofusaurus, if I understand your answer above, Platinum players get to play more word puzzles per week than gold or non-paying. We already get 2 per day; how many more word puzzles do you get for platinum?

The word puzzles are my favorite and that would be a real drawing card for me to go platinum if I could play more than 2 a day. Well, as soon as I get a new computer since mine just went pssst and died!

Platinum gets more Word Rounds and Word Matches, but not more Word Puzzles than Gold.

I upgraded to platinum to support Justin and Sploofus.
