    Thanks for your feedback, that's really appreciated - what would be affordable in your view?

    It really depends. World of Warcraft costs £10 a month and Runescape £5 so the site's prices aren't actually that outlandish, but I'd say that even with £1 less per month, this would give a reduction of £12 per year which could be considerable to a student, and the lower price may end up increasing the number that join, offsetting any losses the TSR group may incur from a price reduction. I'd PERSONALLY pay £3-4, and you could move the annual plan price to £35 (as £40 is similar to what XBL costs per year, so again, going with the perspective that many students play video games... You get where I'm going )

    Yes

    That page is being re-worded shortly, but it will indeed work in the same way as before :yy:

    On the subject of subscriptions, I would suggest (if not possible already):

    - Allow TSR credits to be used to buy a subscription to MbT. While the useful scope may currently be low, it would allow those who are rewarded with credits(e.g. PS/CV Helpers iirc / some competition winners and so-on) to have more ways to use them.
    - Allow a joint-site subscription to both TSR and MbT or give a discount to TSR Subs. This may encourage more users paying for one of the sites to try the other site.

    Haha, maybe I am secretly one of you, suggesting ideas which you will then implement to show you listen to the community (Although then I would have given the game away)

    I will let you know if I think of anything more
