    Official Update About the Site: Paid Memberships

    Hi folks,

    Seeing that it's now the month of April, another site update is upon us! We here at WiiUForums (and the soon to be Switch site, more on that below) always strive to make sure that we provide the users here with the best experience possible. That's why after intense deliberation, we are happy to announce that we are transitioning the site towards a paid membership service. To reduce the length of this OP, the rest of this post has been cordoned off into sections.

    1) A paid membership service?






    2) Price?






    3) Really that cheap huh? Do I get perks?






    4) Interesting I suppose, but what about information regarding the new site?






    5) Loving the awesome news Max! But let's say I want to keep my account?






    Well, that's it for the update folks, except for one important piece of information. Due to the dynamic changes our site is undergoing, we will be providing everyone with a chance to win a year's worth of paid membership to the new website. Consider it an April Fools Day Membership Lottery! Tomorrow, at 1:30 pm MST we will perform the draw, where a handful of lucky members will get full paid membership access! How do you enter? Simple! You already are. All active members of this site are eligible for the contest and have been automatically added.

    Thanks everyone for your amazing support over the years, and hopefully for much more to come!

    On a completely unrelated note, this will be my last week as a member of the staff team. Once we see this site transition through, I will be exiting my position as a moderator. Thank you all for the amazing memories!

    Also mods and guides, one thing I forgot to point out is that you will all be automatically receiving a free paid membership on the new site as well. No payment is needed on your part.

    They're trying to charge the few amount of members that are left so they can talk about the Switch? Good thing I made a NeoGAF account a month ago.

    On the bright side, Max is finally gone so there's that.

    If you believe hard enough, it's real. If you will it, Max will leave.

    I totally thought this was real until I saw the light in the comments.

    Besides, this forum has been free for more than 2 years you stupid idiot.

    Thanks for clarifying and helping me decide which option feels better for me.
    With the new information at hand I'll gladly go for the paid subscription plan as I feel that has the most value.
    I shall celebrate this occasion by updating my avatar to better reflect my status

    Hopefully the payment process is secure. I don't want anyone getting my credit card number.

    And I vote for vector to come back and fill the mod position.

    Should I pay in Monopoly money or beaver pelts? Both are accepted currency in Canada, right? Or would you prefer a jar full of farts?

    This isn't too far fetched.

    I just realized he wrote "Consider it an April Fools Day Membership Lottery!" at the end. I didn't realize that the first time reading through it. I wonder what we will get this year?! This is taking longer to take effect than the money from Woody's Nigerian whatever person...

    Can't believe you bumped an old April Fool's thread. Thanks for the reminder to be prepared when that comes up, though.

    Apparently Woody is a power bottom. Look it up kids!

    Not really, it’s an adult term. I should stop talking. Always going too far...
