Ok now it is. $50?!?! As if. That's more than all the clubs I join to support them! Let me know when there is a $10 special...

$20. Maybe $25. But $50? No thank you.

Wow Terry, for the first time I am disappointed in you.

$50? Is this a joke?

I am a huge RCG fan and a long time member

With that said, I'd love to support the sight but there are three issues.

1. By being one of many many many many members we give the site the ability to sell advertising space to make $ so I'm already supporting it by using it.
2. $50 a year ???????????????????????????????? Come on Jim .. please ... get real
3. Even with all this said, even if $10 a year .. there is really nothing special about the plus. I mean nothing. I can buy and sell using the present system with no issue, I have plenty of mail slots, I like the site, I don't want anything changed .. including an upgrade.

Sorry guys, I understand making a profit and I'm all for that but this one is a no hitter Hey, please no offense intended given I really do like RCG. This one just isn't such a great idea and certainly not worth extra $ let alone $50.

RC Plus???? Hell, I'm still using classic

Don't really know what a blog is, seriously. Don't have a cell phone either

Never had more than 20 mail spaces used up.

Sorry, I have no need for this even if it was free.

The only thing that slightly appeals to me is the extra PM space. I fill my box quickly.

Too many? No such thing.

Yeah, I clicked on the link to join, but $50 is way too high.

A bit steep, but.........

Compared to most of you I m new to RC, but can honestly say that most of what I learnt, I learnt here on RCG.

I have corresponded with other folk, bought and sold stuff and generally enjoyed reading up on other people's projects, difficulties and solutions, it has all helped me solve mine.

What have I given for this?

Until today nothing.

Yes the $50 is a bit steep, honestly don't know for how many years I will be able to do this, however, it is just my little contribution to RCG.

Many thanks to you all who posted, RCG will be nothing with out you; and thanks to RCG to making this possible.
