    How much would you pay for this site?

    Since John Henry just purchased the Globe, I'm wondering if subscription charges are going to be part of his revenue strategy.  If so, how much would you pay to remain a member here?

    For me, I think I would pay something, I'm just not sure how much.

    I can't imagine anyone charging for a forum.

    I wouldn't pay a dime.

    I think, hang, that even if this is the best Bruins forum going, someone else can duplicate it and harvest the 27000 clicks you, me, NAS and OatesCam have already brought to the site.  I understand the Globe putting some of its content behind a subscriber firewall; I even support it ideologically even if it means I now have to pay for something they once gave me for free.  Sort of the same reason I can't blame the owners for wanting to see more ROI on their hundreds of millions.  But as long as there's nothing to stop me from going to another board and signing on as NAS, there's no compelling reason to pay for the forum.

    I've already stopped reading most of the Globe content they do make available because it's so minimal and so rarely adds anything to what TSN, NHL.com, etc. already provide.

     

     

    Are you not entertained?!?!

    If they are going to charge for this site, I think they should pay some of the posters to keep contributing.

    Or at least waive the subscription cost for the 'quality' posters who start worthwhile threads.

    Just off the top of my head - and apologies to those I'm not including, but I consider Book, NAS, Red, Dez and Chowda's posts worthwhile reading.

    And here's another question, if I were to build a forum which would be moderated - would you join it if they charged a fee here?

    I feel like I've already spent too much.

    I feel John Henry should pay me.

    I'm the reason NAS,Dez,Chowda,Book,Red come on here.

    Notice how I left BadHab out.

    I just don't think it would work, because there are a lot of free forums.  They get a lot of hits on these forums, bring a lot of people to the website, and can sell a lot of ads.  I'm guessing this is already a profitable venture for them.

    Perhaps I would pay something if there was some sort of a subscription package, but I doubt it.  I still read the Globe every day, after 12 years of living outside of New England.  So I'm loyal, but if I suddenly got charged for a forum, I think I would head over to HF boards or whatever.  I bet a rival would pop up pretty fast that was still free.

    Sorry Kels, yes, I forgot you, Shupe, Sandog, Fletch - and apologies to the rest that I'm omitting, I knew I would forget 90% of everyone.

    In essence having a forum or Bruins discussions only brings people to boston.com.  It would be poor business strategy to charge for posting.  I would not pay a penny.

    most of you would follow wherever I post even if there was a cost attributed.




    If I had to pay, I would request a sitdown with John,Larry,Tom and the rest of the Fenway Sports group about not allowing people like you,Pauly1 and Marco. Tongue Out
