Can we appreciate RJ for it being 100% FREE!

    I think people take this site for granted sometimes. Sure, it has it's issues that need to be addressed, but the site is 100% free and has absolutely no subscription tied to it.

    Can you imagine someone sends you a PM, you click to read it, and a box comes up that says "Sorry, your 10 message limit has expired for today. Try again in 24 hours." People would FLIP like an episode of "Snapped" on TruTv. The reality is many (gay) sites have this feature, and it's awful!

    Serious kudos to RJ for being 100% free and letting us have access to ALL features!

    Why is it free ... Is it really a cover site or law agencies to spy on gays and look for pedophiles, drugies, etc? icon_confused.gif

    Are they down loading soft ware onto your drive and check everything you have on your computer ... do you sometimes hear your hard drive spinning for no reason? do you sometimes get locked off the net work after making an update?

    RJ once had a premium paid subscription service. The main advantage for me was the option to turn off advertisements, plus you got a gift, like an RJ logo T-shirt (the old logo design).

    I think some guys would gladly pay for:
    - Better privacy and security features
    - Image hosting
    - Some BASIC features that are found on almost all other forums
    - Less bloated and more mobile friendly site design

    Really? I guess it would depend on the price because in my head I see the majority of members leaving this site if a membership came along.

    Well, like other websites, certain features would be free. And other features would require a paid membership. I think $20 a year for a site like this is reasonable.

    I believe the stated reason for RJ chat going away was that the provider (AOL I think) was withdrawing the service.

    we have google hangout and tinychat for that though.

    But that doesn't use your RJ username. The old service forced you to be logged into RJ and would use your username.
