How about a "CR Enthusiast" level that's half all those prices and just gets rid of the popup (at the bottom) and autoplaying video ads?
I'm all for that. I've got various equilibrium problems and easily triggered migraines secondary to a brain injury. I've had times when the flashing ads piling on top of each other and the autoplay videos have made me sick before I could get the browser closed. Right now I've only got three ads on this screen; I had six on the last screen. I love this site, and I don't want to be one of those people who whines about something that's free; I think the modest fees requested are more than reasonable.

I'd be more inclined to pay for a Pro membership if the site name had correct spelling, after all, "rumours" is the correct English (the language of England) spelling... just saying. Then again, it also annoys me no end when I see the unit of length incorrectly named in Canon User Manuals as "meters" instead of the correct international spelling of "metres".
On a different note, amongst all the kerfuffle about the R5 and R6's video capabilities which I couldn't give a fat rat's clack about, I've noticed very little media attention to the outstanding shutter life ratings on the new cameras, being 300,000 for the EOS R6 and a staggering 500,000-shot shutter life for the R5. That alone means far more to me than all of the video stuff combined.

Maybe it's because I'm on mobile, but I can't seem to figure out how to upgrade. I'll try again when I get home from work.

agree. I’m happy to pony up. But those mosquito ad videos are serious garbage, and I think aren’t good for any site. They discourage traffic. CR has become almost unusable on IOS mobile lately...

I'll admit it. I've been running adblock on this site since forever and have never been bothered by any adverts.

So I've signed up and paid my dues not because I want to get rid of the ads, but because I want to support the work being done here.

Question - will paid-up members be marked in a different way within this forum? I think that would be a good incentive for people to pay to upgrade if it shows who is actively supporting the site. I might even be more polite to them in my replies :)

Yes, there will be a wrapper around your avatar, that should be ready to go next week.

This was more of a soft launch at a low traffic time to make sure it all worked.

Thanks a ton for your support.

Yep, in the same situation as you. This is one of my go-to sites. I've signed up. :geek:
