This site was very important and heavily used by me in the last years. Happy to pay a fee for all the usage!

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.
@Canon Rumors Guy ... Time to create canonrumours.co.uk and do some rebranding. ;)

Lifetime is a no-brainer at that price.
I don't like the dynamics of money flow for lifetime. The site needs some periodically paying subscribers, otherwise the whole ad-free scheme would be unsustainable in the long run, unless there are other ways of monetize that subscriber base.

Would love to support this site. Debating between lifetime and lifetime plus. Will make a decision soon :)

My first login since I upgraded last night before I had to dash out.

Wow all the ads have vanished, I understand why they had to be, but it is so nice to browse this site now without it being cluttered with ads, I was always popping them off, clicking on the X as they appeared, but no need anymore, happy days!

I would imagine not, as they’d knowingly break the rules to get to that stage. I don’t get my drivers license fees back if I get DQ from driving ;)
I'd imagine not too it was just a little light poke

For the record, www.canonrumours.com works :)

CR is a Canada-based site, and Canadians use British spelling, as do India and Australia, the majority of English speakers.
I knew it was Canada-based, but made a bad assumption that Canada used the American spelling of the word (actually because of this site). Thanks for the clarification.

I find it even funnier because the U serves no actual phonetic purpose, it's just gratuitous padding. And the Brits aren't consistent about it either, since horror isn't spelled horrour.
