Ok, that's a bit harsh. I agree with the general gist of your post, but to say that forum members should have zero say in the forum is drone-speak


@Chester, we can agree to disagree [smile].  You may think the post is harsh, that's fine.  But respecting other people's private property (and their right to do with it as they see fit) is far from drone-speak.

I'm sure SO would be very open to suggestions and feedback, and I agree that both are necessary.  But there's a way to do that which reflects a basic respect with whom the individual is talking, and not an underlying sense of obligation or entitlement from the suggester.  Flaming a post with sarcasm, innuendo, and speculation (as the OP did) is not very helpful to any forum, paid or unpaid.

For those speculating on a monetarily viable model to sustain the site, there are only three that are currently present in the web world:

- Charge for your content (whether that be a monthly, one-time, whatever.  Ala wall street journel - "premium content").

- Host adverts ("sponsorships" - i.e., ads, seen huffpo, MSNBC, youtube, etc).  The only common theme with this model is that the ad network attempts to have "relevant" content hosted on the site - matching up the nature of the content with the nature of the ads.  If working on a "onsie twosie" scenario, in which SO is personally vetting the advertisers, it will likely become exhausting in a hurry.  Which is why so many turn to ad networks (revcontent, google adsense). The downside is you lose control of exactly what gets advertised on the site.  

- Affiliate promos - similar to what you see on newsmax, they act as a salesman of specific promos they select.  

Or, of course, some combo thereof.  

Again, I just wish to express my gratitude to the mods and SO for the work they put in on the site.

Cheers.

Or maybe, some of these ranters can offer to have us pay $5 each month to their email accounts then forward to you by google wallet - that's part of the "fraternity" one can expect from an "exclusive" forum like this ...

So is the problem that it won't accept low denominations like $5? Or it won't accept any amount period?

Doctors who have employed unscrupulous methods (with this forum, e.g. shilling) and/or unscrupulous methodologies (with their patients, e.g. dishonesty, multiple significantly botched procedures, etc via first-hand accounts). I rather not post the names of the physicians (although there are only 2 active physicians & 1 clinic on the list, with enough reading on this forum you can probably determine who they are). It's my own personal decision who I refuse to offer Commercial Accounts to and this should not affect your decision making. I believe there is more than enough content here to give you some direction on who to consider & who to avoid. Good luck.

Edit: One already publicly known is Androfill. Decided to turn down a monetary exchange due to shilling attempts of this forum.

What the fuck is Paypal's issue? This forum is clear of pornography and is perfectly all right to see an erected penis for educational purposes. You can find pictures of erected penises in wikipedia and encyclopedia britannica. 

But then again, I could never understand Americans, their morals and in particular their fear of not exposing anyone to images of human body (e.g. women's breast and even full nudity in movies which you can see in Spain and France in movies rated for ages 9 or 12). It's perfectly ok to buy a gun, however. 

I don't mean to be political, it's just a shame that paypal would not allow us to make membership purchases through their account. It's unbelievable how stupid it is.

They never really gave me a clear answer other than it violated their terms of service. I only assumed it had to do with the adult content.

Honestly I don't know what everyone is so uptight about.

I used to be half owner of an automotive related forum board (and am still an admin there). We were like any other start up forum. Had maybe a couple of hundred users. Then the forum started growing. Slowly for the first couple of years until one day, seemed like out of nowhere, we went from maybe 1500 users to over 15,000. In order for the forum to operate, you have to upgrade services. And I can tell you first hand just how ridiculously expensive it can get. A forum owner can't be expected to fund the board out of his or her own pocket. You have hosting costs, bandwidth costs, server maintenance costs, data base protection, data base maintenance, the list goes on and on. Might as well throw in LLC costs, attorney retainer fees, and accountant fees too because eventually you will need those as well. The more popular the board gets, the more it costs. Eventually you have to make the decision to implement a subscription based board to try to help offset the cost. But for every "healthy" contributor, you have twenty people who will give five dollars. While every donation is appreciated, trust me, five dollars doesn't feed the bulldog in the grand scheme of things. Then you are faced with the decision of limited access for non contributing members. Yes, this will bring in a few more contributions. But the costs will continue to rise. Finally, you will be faced with the decision of sponsorship. For forum owners that are doing it out of passion for the forum (as opposed to those boards out there that are a business income for conglomerates ), this is a tough decision. But never the less, it is a decision that has to be made. Been there, done that, been beat to hell with the fallout from it. At best, all you can hope for is that you might break even. 

So to SO and all the people who keep the doors open and the lights on, my hat is off to you guys. Because I know what a pain in the ass it is to be in your shoes.

I've already payed $40 (debit card) for a 365 subscription, and I still am not getting to see pictures.

Could some administration to check and do anything about it?

Subscription/order: 0217222401000006158 (2017-08-10).

I would be happy to provide my results and many complications so that others would be aware of what to expect..
However the thoughts of myself and others I have talked to are such that 1. why would we pay to tell others about our personal experiences with girth enhancements, especially when everyone just wants to see Pictures of our penises. This is not a porn site- it's designed to help people make educated decisions about the procedure. 2. By charging people money - you are eliminating ALOT of people that may be willing to share their experiences with the forumn. If you look at the statistics - Dr.C does about 2+ new procedures a day...


Hm. You can start a journal and post your pictures and get feedback and questions answered - for free - and then you get free membership from it.

And if you are a reader, you can read for free.

And if you want to read and see the progress pictures, then you can pay a few dollars that are *nothing* compared to a penis procedure.

Also i think it's great only people who pay can see my penis.

Seriously.

Am i missing something?

Commercial accounts means accounts where it is clearly seeable that they sell something because they are marked? Sounds good to me.
