Become an OCAU Subscriber! (191 Comments) (link)
 Thursday, 1-April-2004  00:06:19 (GMT +10) - by Agg

Today marks an exciting new chapter in OCAU's history. The advertiser-funded system we've been using to keep the site financially viable for the last few years has basically ground to a halt and is no longer workable. In order to keep bringing you the content you enjoy, we're moving to a subscriber-funded system. This gives you, the reader, the opportunity to directly support OCAU by purchasing a subscription to the content you want to view.

In two weeks time the entire website will be secured with a password-protection system. Only subscribers will be able to access the various sections of the site. You can purchase subscriptions on a monthly basis using Paypal or Direct Deposit.

The pricing will be as follows:
  • News Page:     $1.95/month
  • Reviews/Articles:     $5.95/month
  • Forums (except Trading):     $10.95/month
  • Trading Forums:     $10.95/month
Or, you can purchase access to the entire site, just like you have now, for just $19.95 per calendar month. All prices include GST and are in Australian dollars. We will consider discounts for 6-month or 12-month packages.

The ordering system will be available soon. We hope you'll see the value in this new financial model for OCAU. We envisage that this forward-thinking step will allow us to bring you more content, faster servers and help build a stronger sense of community. Thanks for your support!

Update: APRIL FOOLS!!!! Blame Wolfy for this year's idea. :)
