Which leades us to about 8,680,000 members!!
Well, we should delete the inactive acccounts so we can have a proper count.
Maybe they'll lower their memberships as a result of all these members.
99 bucks for a membership is pretty steep.
You don't need to pay for a diamond membership. It's optional. However I wish this site were paying members only, it would probably remove 80% of the cheaters.
I agree with that.
We will soon have 23,000 new accounts!
9 million members. Let's do some math.Assume just 1% of them are Diamond Members, 1% are Platinum members, and 1% are Gold Members.1% of 9 million is, of course, 90,000.90,000 members x $99 year = $8,910,000 (Diamond revenue)90,000 members x $49 year = $4,410,000 (Platinum revenue)90,000 members x $29 year = $2,610,000 (Gold revenue)Total Membership Revenue = $15,930,000Total Revenue from Ads = ?And 1% for each is most likely on the low side. (Maybe not though... I really have no idea. Maybe it's on the high side and only 1 out of every 200 players pay for the additional features.)Either way, that seems like more than enough revenue to support a decent server with no lage, hire some competent programmers to fix bugs and update features, etc. I'd love to see their balance sheets.
ya 8.9 million cheats
You must be intoxicated! 80% ?!? I understand there is a problem with cheating, and it's amplified for those at your level. What about the rest of us, which is a majority of the site?
If the detection system doesn't work adequately enough for you, you could start your own site.
Things must be getting pretty bad if someone managed to rile Al...
That is why I suggest a hundred dollars bond when joining up this site.
Think he been living in Coata Rica for too long ...?
Moving soon. Authorities are catching up.
(pool coming with)
Is it a Para Rubber pool type ?
It's been one poolside resort after another since finding the envelope full of travelers checques under the door just before the big fire.
