    i came to the idea for this thread becaus of my last thread and the responses by members.as i read and noticed the member's photos and videos,it occurred to me that there are not a lot of gold members.WHY NOT!!!!!!!it's so cheap and i'm sure that rob and the other people that run this site could use more support than they're getting now what do we all think?let's ante up and open the wallets with whatever we can do!i'm putting this in women's issues because it one catagory that get"s a lot of attention.

    My guess is that people can't justify paying the price for what being a gold member brings. Does being a Gold Member even do anything beyond allowing you to see the videos here? Maybe they could make one of the forums gold member only?

    Regardless, this is a great site (even if I have the occasional connection hickup) and I have no problem whatsoever contributing what little is asked. I don't know if anyone notices, but there are barely any ads on this site. It seems insignificant, but advertisement can make or break a website, I've seen them ruin others in the past, and would hate to see it happen here. Contribute if you're able people, keep the site as it is now!

    "It's gold, HM, gold!"

    My account runs out on Christmas Eve. Guess I have something to ask for this Christmas.

    I have to disagree, alien. I enjoy this site of course but I can think of about a thousand more deserving causes to give my money to.

    This is an interesting topic about Gold Member status. I'm not really sure why more people don't pay to upgrade, but I would bet that it has to do with a lack of communication on the benefits for one (at least a part of it). I frankly have no idea of what the differences are nor even what it costs to upgrade, so if there are other with the same thoughts, even just communicating the whole system to them would make them infinitely more likely to become gold members (considering they have almost no knowledge at this time).

    But also, I would not pay to upgrade likely under any benefit, as I pretty much can get in and out of this site whatever I feel necessary from it as a general member.

    I am considering starting a website of my own (not at all related to this one) and am wondering about how sustainable it will be in terms of subscriptions. When it comes to message boards, that is how a site makes all of its money.

    As far as this one, I would say to those who are feeling sorry for LPSG not having enough Gold Members, that you need not worry at all. This site has a hidious amount of members (16,000 or something active? It shows up on the index page at the bottom) and just getting say 1% of them to pay a $10 upgrade fee would rake in $1600 per year. A vbulletin message board is a one time fee of $160, with I believe $30ish yearly upgrades to software. So, a site this large is easily sustainable as an entity and likely makes very good profits, even if say 5 or 10% of its members choose to upgrade.

    So the choice is yours I say. If you are into the site enough that you feel you can benefit from an upgrade, then that's fine. If you are part of it enough as it is, then don't. Either way, don't let any thoughts about the site's welfare itself influence your judgement, because as far as I can see this site is thriving.

    Well, I'm not interested to upgrade bcause I'm not interested in see videos..well, just only 2 days ago that I went to see the gallery pages and did not see even 20% of it...I went to have a look to have an ideia the members of the members bcause of 'the fake legit' topic...

    I like LPSG mostly bcause of the foruns.

    Sometimes this site is so funny, sometimes so sad. I stumbled onto it looking for well hung men who really enjoyed having their dicks worshipped, and I found all of THIS, lol. (p.s. most well hung gay men are sick and tired of all that cock attention they get....alot like women with large boobs...) Luckily for me, I also worship manbutt!!!
