So let's say starting October you have to pay to gain full access on GAG.
Just an example of how it could be:
- Premium account 5€/$ for one month or 10€/$ for 3 months no ads unlimited access verified user + option to filter out non verified users no limit on posting questions or images in a post able to change your name once fancy premium user badge achievements or advanced statistics more profile customization options
- Free account ads max. 5 question a month max 1 image or link per post no avatar or profile picture none of the addition features listed above
I DO NOT THINK IT IS A GOOD IDEA but just wanna see if people would be willing to pay :)
Yes, I'd pay for it

Yes, but it needs to be cheaper or offer more than that example
No, I wouldn't pay for it. I'd probably stay and just use the free account, but I'd consider leaving if they did that. Not necessarily because of how poor the site would be but also because it doesn't show much care or consideration for their users.
Unfortunately I would stop using GAG then simply cause a) I'm not from America or Europe which will make the money thing a huge issue and b) A free account with no features and lots of limitations will be annoying. It's basically a lose-lose situation for me :/
no, and i'd stop using it lol. there's way too many dumbasses to deal with on here to pay money for that.. it's an advice site. i don't feel that i need to pay for advice or to give advice. and one of the perks to this site is getting money or gift cards, so i wouldn't pay money just to get it back. xD
Yes I would pay because (1) I hate ads (2) I really like idea of verified users (3) Unlimited questions would not bother me but I like posting images (4) I would like option to hide badges only one I would show is verified user one. (5) I love stats and lists, that would be fantastic (6) Would like to enhance my profile
No way are you kidding me? If anything I should be paid for all my years of helping out people and in PM as well. I have spent so much time on this site. My time is worth a lot. I have helped out many people for many years for free even off of this site and on the phone as well.
think about it... if it means we'd wipe out every troll here and every lousy user who posts unhelpful/chatty opinions... it'd be magnificent... a troll or one who comes here to chat anf have fun... would NEVER pay for a site trust me... they'd just pack their bags and leave...
and it's just 10 fuckin bucks (in euros it's about 8.8 euros) for 3 months... not a whole damn fortune...
also if by "more profile customization options" u mean i could change my username... EVEN better... i'd give 30 bucks for it... not just 10...
but unfortunately GAG's a business... so it'd never happen i'm afraid since they'll lose many users... and as a business they'd rather deal wid trolls than have a site wid much less members... even if it means "good" members... :(
