From what I can gather, there's no "utility" to subscribing. Subscribing is just a way to donate to the site. It's purely voluntary, and the purpose of it is to support them monetarily. The things you get out of it, a title and a different shape for your smartscore, are purely cosmetic, except for the fact that they display your support for the site. I actually like the system, and I've seen it work well for other free websites. People who are happy with how the site is being run should consider subscribing.
So it's another way of bribing the admins? lol
I've heard that if you subscribe, they stop deleting your posts.
^^ Bribing, see?
The subscribers will get extra features. BRIBING.
Bribing is not the idea of it. Practically speaking, they would probably hassle you less if you subscribed though.
Toll for trolls to live free.
lol. You gotta pay the troll toll. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lO1ulfaytSk
i gotta get me one of those then
I guess that subscription also increases SmartScore.
I don't feel like digging into the payments system to figure out how many people have subscribed at the moment. That said, in terms of utility - it's a way to help support the site if you like it, as SmoothMath said. We'll still probably delete your posts if they violate the CoC, however.
*if we feel like it
^Lol you just want to cause trouble, dont you?
basic principle you have to learn about trolls @Agent_Sniffles is that we have nothing to lose
If you had nothing to loose, you wouldn't go to such great lengths to come back after suspensions. ;)
Lol thats what I was gonna say!
