    I'm new here and may be interested in subscribing. On the subscription page [http://www.redhotpawn.com/vstat/subs.php], some things are clear:

    -No more annoying ads.
    -Unlimited concurrent games.
    -Enter tournaments.
    -Join Clans.

    But I'm curious what the "further features" are besides profile customisation. What are the "further features?"

    Thanks!

    You have longer vacation possibilities, you can upload an avatar, you have a higher status than non-subs in forums, it's easier to find a opponent wanting to play with you - to mention some.

    well to go along with he unlimited games and can play in sieges.

    but for me the best part are the private forums in clans, if you get an active clan they can be pretty enjoyable.

    but it pretty much come down down to do you like the set up here and do you want to lay more than 6 games...if the answer to both questions is yes then i can't tell you of a reason not to scribescribe.

    if you're going to sub, you should sub before jan first when the price goes up.

    Now and then I see people are commented on this. Their opinions are not as much worth as if they would be subscribers. Especially in Site Ideas Forum.

    I, myself, think that a good opinion is worth standing for itself, no regard of the author.

    And, no, I don't think a players IQ and his rating are the same.

    tbh i've never seen that here, sure you get the odd comment...'you're not a sub why do you care..bla bla...that sort of childish stuff but i wouldn't say the star gives you anymore respect in the forums...look at red night and GB

    but does your IQ have anything to do with intellect also?

    Their opinions are worth as much or as little as subscribers.
    If you mean "they are appreciated less" well that's different - there certainly is a major 'us and them' feeling on this site.


    That's my opinion - which is worth as much as anyone elses.

    You get 36 days a year of vacation you can book were your opponents can't time you out on those days.
    You can recommend posts in the forums.
    You can start your own clan.
    I'm sure there's more.

    You can enter banded tournaments and then get thrashed in the 3 round by a sandbagger that's 500 points over the rating limit.
