Yep, I've had to delete messages cause I got to the limit.
I think a "paid" thing is a great idea. You get some perks like your signature and avatar is bigger for supporting the site.
I can GUARANTEE I have saved more than $15.02 just from the advice I've receiived here.
Do we get more picture storage too? I wasn't sure.
Heck, I was ready to plunk down the cash even before I saw there were perks.
I appreciate the opportunity to help support such a great site. And no one on this forum can really argue that! LOL
