I was asked to make this thread by the DDO moderater (I am assuming one of the Juggle employees), after I had inquired about future site developments, and plans.

I remember quite a few people have brought this up in the past, and expressed a great amount of interest in this, but I will reproach the subject to see what the current interest level is.

So I could really use some feedback. Supposing all the current features remained free for members who did not wish to pay: What features would be attractive enough for you to want to pay for in order to have more options and features?

EX: extra profile editing options, ability to edit posts, the ability to comment, like, and share pictures, etc.

All responses are appreciated.

Ummm........I'm assuming something like 5-10 bucks a month.......honestly, I don't think anything. A chat room would be a start, maybe team debates? An edit post system, a DDO built mafia game system, with a chat room for each game and custom roles.......stuff like that.

I would like to see the forum enhanced. I've suggested this before, but things like badges (and a 'contributor" badge for people who paid), achievements, post-number related titles (newbies, regular, veteran) and custom titles for paying members...

inb4 "This is a debate site, not a forum site" I know this is a DEBATE site, but the forums are extremely important and popular and undoubtedly a source and home of many debates and arguments.

inb4 "That stuff will encourage people to spam" Well I know that, but we have great moderators. If you spam, you could get a "spam" badge so everyone knows you suck. :P

Possibly live video team debates with team rankings and highly qualified judges. In fact, if a proportion of the money went towards getting a professional judge in to adjudicate your debates, and we could do a proper video debates complete with time for both teams to prepare as a team, I would actually sign up.

I've definitely thought about the bolded, and agree that it would be pretty unique. the chatroom is a good idea also. Thanks ober!

Video debates is a definite one. And I like the idea of more customization. More sig space is another one.

How much: 5-10$ a month

Things people would pay for:
- Team debates *
- DDO built mafia system
- Chatroom
-Enhanced forum features
- Live video debates*
-Professional judges
-Coaching for newer debaters
- Profile customization add ons
-Avatars (gif's)

Good feedback so far, thankyou guys! The more feedback we can get, the more likely it will be that changes will be made.

That would actually be quite interesting. I'd be interested in pursuing either side of that. Part of the monthly fee or whatever could go to paying the judge. Of course the actual payment to the judge would dictate how much we'd charge, but it's an interesting idea.

Some of these things I do feel should be bare necessities to a forum though.

For the record, there is already an attempt at the creation of team debating within the current framework of the site...

Unfortunately, it has yet to actually be applied in practice, as the second team ended up failing to participate, but it seems a feature a lot of people say they want, but are unwilling to actually participate in.

I am not sure what I'd pay for, honestly, which is a cop-out answer, but most of the things I could think of might just as easily annoy me that they have to be paid for, which might make me not come here.

Perhaps some more featuring/spotlighting? I like the idea of coaching...

I would pay for a premium forum only for senior-members. That is, members who have been here for at least a certain amount of time (say, a year) and have won a certain number of debates (say, five).

I love the newbies but this would still be great.
