Some people want everything for nothing, I remember when NIK suggested a 10 pence a week donation from members to pay for the site expenses, all hell broke loose.
As with most things in life - you get what you pay for - generally anyways
AW girlies deffo included !
10p a week would hardly be a killer in terms of the usefulness of the info available & general all round fun being a member
Lets assume say a punt a month @ £100 quid for an hour as an average
That's £1,200 for a year. So what's an extra fiver on top for a UKP subscription
I'm sure that judging by the number of posts / reviews by certain UKP lotharios, then it is clear that spending is considerably above £1,200 p.a.
More like £1,200 mth - in some cases maybe £1,200 week [i'm just envious & am happy to admit this]
I've already dramatically changed my punting plans on several occasions thanks to UKP
Even if i wouldn't have probably got to meet several AW girlies in reality [general concerns & other better ones come into focus etc] - then UKP has enabled me to knock these straight off my HL
And i haven't wasted loads of time pondering etc
My HL has had a thorough overhaul thanks to UKP - lots of deletions & an equal number added
If there were a charge it would help eliminate time-wasters & general terry-fuckwits
The only problem i can see happening is how would members pay discreetly
For those with OH's then keeping the nokia punting mobile hidden is enough of an issue, without pondering credit card payments & the like
