    Membership Explained.

    I see there is a way to "subscribe" to TG. What is that all about?

    Re: Membership Explained.

    Man, we need more brochureware for our memberships. Maybe I'll write that someday.

    Essentially, membership is your way to help support the costs of this endeavor we call home and enjoy some members-only benefits in the meantime.

    The cost is $6.66/mo for a yearly subscription or $8.95/mo for a monthly subscription. You get a TG email address, TG webspace w/ FTP access, access to a downloads area where we keep downloads related to our games, and you get reserved slots on servers which allow for them (presently our NS and CSS servers). We also have (I think) members-only TS servers. The members-only forums are nice, also.

    I nightly enjoy the reserved slots (the biggest benefit given my needs), but I'd support this place because of what it is and what it offers. If you feel the same way, sign up. If not, enjoy your time here and be grateful to those who help pay the bills.

Nightly I am amazed at the personalities and gaming talent.

    Are you trying to guilt me into signing up? -or- Are you calling people that dont sign up freeloaders? :-)

    Re: Membership Explained.

    lol

    I have many friends among us who are not supporting members. Most (if not all) of us who do have memberships understand that not everyone can manage a membership for one reason or another. Also, to be sure, some regulars just don't think this place earns their money.

    It's not guilt, but let's call a spade a spade. I meant just and only what I said... if you're not to have a membership, enjoy your time here and be grateful.

    Not quite. Every player helps make TG what it is, paying or not.

    Your continued presence and play in the spirit of TacticalGamer is all we require. We beg every now and again for cash, though.

    See the members-only forums. I believe it's all explained there.

    Re: Membership Explained.

    =GsTA= has both supporting members and non supporting members. we don't require any one to join TG to be a member of our clan BUT we do strongly recomend that if you can afford it, then give it serious thought. Tg is more than the sum of all the games we play. We are a group of friends from many back gounds, who enjoy playing and chatting together. I can not list all of the benifits to TG member ship. I can say that the $400 in prizes I won in the Badger Hunt should say some thing about the benifits. it has been 3 months and I am still hyped. so hey, if you don't join it leaves less compatition for the prizes that Luna and Phyllis and DdogG and the rest of the crew convince sponsors to give for the tourneys.

    Re: Membership Explained.

    I guess Wyzcrak took care of all the explaining for me. Thanks!

    We appreciate those that can help support TG, and hold nothing against those that don't have the means or just choose not to. All the proceeds from memberships go towards paying the hosting bills for the web site, TeamSpeak, and the gaming servers. As we get more memberships, we're also able to launch more gaming servers. The influx of new supporting Counter-Strike members enabled us to procure a dedicated physical server for our two Counter-Strike servers.

    It's not an overly cheap endeavor to keep TG running, but it's entirely member supported. I try and pay attention to what the member base is looking for in the way of new games, and provide the appropriate resources for them as the funds/memberships allow.

    Diplomacy is the art of saying "good doggie" while looking for a bigger stick.
