Far as the forums go, you cannot post in the classifieds, wanted section, services offered section, but can post in the discussion forums. The pit, nsfw and political forums are only viewable by paid subscription. You can also buy from the classified section by pm'ing the seller, you just cant post a for sale thread, wanted thread, services offered thread, without upgrading.
I know this wont satisfy everyone, but I feel it is the best thing for the board and SGN moving forward. I cant say enough about the members who have stepped up and offered memberships to the board, says a lot about the kind of members we have here.
I think you found a great balance of features for free vs. paid memberships. It is a sign of a good leader to reflect and respond to suggestions that improve the system and I commend you for seeing through all the bitching and finding the good suggestions within.

If I'm not mistaken, I think that Norm said in one of the other threads that purchasing more than once will just add on to your membership length, so you could buy 4 quarters now and they would be consecutive not concurrent, which is good.
