This might has been discussed before but how about giving "one" free game to the non-subscribers after every 1000 or maybe 10000 move he/she makes in RHP?
This might increase the number of active members.

6 free games is too many already - do you want a couple of mine?
There was an official non sub tournament a short while ago; dunno if it enticed anyone to subscribe though.
Originally posted by wittywonkaPeople who don't pay should be awarded for making more moves? What does that have to do with business? Eat 6 free sandwiches, get your 7th for free also? This doesn't make any sense at all.
I'm a sub, and I think it would be a good idea, too. Especially the part about entering a tourney; it would be interesting to play a nonsub or two in a tourney.
Also, the extra game slot per x moves sounds fair.
For example, a system like:
7 games max after 10,000 moves
8 games max after 20,000 moves
9 games max after 30,000 moves ...[text shortened]... es
15 games max after 90,000 moves
Entry into tournaments (one at a time) after 100,000 moves

If these free users want to refer other users to joining the site, I could see them getting an extra game per user who BUYS a star, and holding that game as long as that member remains a paying customer.
Originally posted by ih8sensLike I said earlier, incentives are nice... but number of moves has nothing to do with it. If you can get someone to join and pay, now we're talking.
I was a sub until just recently and I really believe something like this would work. Subscribing is definitely worth it for those who can and I think an extra game tournament or access to one siege board or whatever would definitely add some incentive... I didn't think those tournaments would be any fun until I played one... it's amazing.

Actually, there is no such thing as a non-sub.
Non star subs.
We re all subscribers. (right?)
