I'm thinking of offering a yearly subscription to GDC where people can help us out by paying something yearly and in return we remove ads on GDC and maybe offer something else?
We can't really be like the Idiot Club where we give everyone a free shirt or something, because $20 a year isn't really enough for us to offer something free and still have enough left over to really contribute to our server costs.
One thing I was thinking that every 3 or 4 months we offer a giveaway of something decent (maybe a shirt or some other Green Day merch) and everyone who's donated is entered.
Any other thoughts? Good idea? Terrible idea? What can we offer to make it worthwhile?
