Costum Avatar Baby, YEAH! <3... erh, wait - why do I still have to type in the CAPCHA? :Oedit: aha, I logged out, and in again - and they seemed to have disappeared - neato! :)
Exactly. Paying for features that should be enabled on ANY forum. There is many other sites with reliable information that do NOT require subscriptions for basic features. Hope it bites you in the ass, seriously.
I honestly don't think this will be the death of WowHead. I would say $9.99 every 3 months isn't much but add up all the people who have an active subscription with the ZAM Network and it adds up to quite a bit of revenue.I honestly don't notice the adverts on any other pages but the blog and I read that only in passing. Though my opinion on adverts is jaded because as a webmaster myself I use adverts and after using the internet for so long and seeing millions of ads spanned across thousands of websites I've grown attuned to ignoring banner-ads and even pop-up/under ads.Sure it's not much to pay but the features you get are so minuscule I see no point. A custom border and avatar? No ads? Bah, I'll pass. The no CAPTCHA and increased character limit are nice additions but not necessary for good website usage.I can see peoples concern with WowHead turning out like Curse did with their Curse Premium but honestly, people should expect that. You don't get something for nothing these days and I'm prepared to pay the price for an extra feature or two if the feature is good enough. I mean, we all pay $15 US a month to play WoW don't we? We're already shelling out our money to a big corporation for cheap thrills (cheap thrills I'll keep paying for though).
So how long does it take to update to premium status. I payed with paypal an have clicked update status in account settings. I know it does take soom time Im just wondering about the timescale.
Awesome! I already had a premium subscription at wowinterface, very nice to extend this idea to other sites as well :)
On second thought, I don't like the custom avatars either. The forums lose the subtle Warcraft touch. 8(
ROFL.. I love Wowhead, and I like spending money as much as the next girl, but this is just a blatant display of greed from ZAM..Me thinks i will choose to endure the annoying party poker ads for a while longer.-And the ads gets too bad, there are plenty of other websites to go to.For the people out there that actually consider throwing money away on this, pm me and I'll give you my details so you can throw a little my way too. ;)
