What's the point?
The subscription system is a way for us to encourage donating by offering some benefits back to the community. I hope that this will encourage members who otherwise wouldn't donate anything to contribute just a bit to help out with our costs. Now, to our major donors - this is not something that will replace donations. If you wish to donate an amount larger than what the subscription plans cost, or an amount inbetween pricing tiers, we still accept (and greatly encourage) regular donations through the "Donate" button.

[*] The satisfaction of helping keep TRR operational by chipping in to help with costs!
Time: Cost [ratio]
1 Month: $3.99 [$3.99 per Month]
3 Months: $10.49 [$3.49 per Month]
6 Months: $17.99 [$2.99 per Month]
1 Year: $29.99 [$2.49 per Month]
Note: Paypal has fees (charged to us, not the buyer) that will take off about $0.42 per month from the original price.
We're still working out the pricing tiers. If you think this is too expensive (or too cheap), post your thoughts! Keep in mind that the idea is to have the prices as efficient as possible without turning people away. The main point of this is to raise money to stay operational; not to sell a forum product with ridiculously low prices.
