Just another idea I had that may help out the site. A premium member area, where there's a small monthly fee, but gives access to exclusive goodies. The good thing is, the member fee in all fairness could be paid by using mob points. It'd encourage people to post more in the forums, or accept more offers to get points.

Incentives could include, premium member only freerolls, a discount in the store(if brm ever decides to sell merchandise), and perhaps exlusive content, such as strategy videos and articles. Perhaps a special title in your profile/forum posts, and other goodies, such as 10 paid posts per day instead of 5, etc etc.

Perhaps extra daily doors to open, or more cracks per day at the safe too?

Good idea, and get some ticket to play at MTT or league. Sound good to BRM and poker site. I wish league, not leaderboard. The difference is limited tourney we can play at league. Come on BRM, you need something new to make BRM more interesting, a lot variance will be good, hope so Smile Smile Smile

The idea itself seems interesting. I'm not so sure on your model though:

Allowing people to essentially have access to more resources (strategy, discounts, freerolls, etc) would obviously cost BRM more money.

So I can see the benefit from the user-end point of view.

However - I do not see how BRM themselves would benefit from this if people subscribed to the members area via mob points - these points are already 'free' and since a lot of people will never reach the 5,000+ needed to cash out, a lot of these points are essentially 'value-less'. By giving people a way to spend them, presumably for less than 5,000 points, just means that BRM will effectively be paying out on more points transactions.

The alternative is obviously to subscribe with actual money (paypal, VISA, MB, NT, etc) - however - I literally don't see anyone going for this option.

So I agree the idea does sound kind of cool - but given that it's asking for more resources to be made available, I'm not sure of what kind of business-model implementation would actually make this advantageous for BRM as well as the user.

Well I think it'd be beneficial, because not only would it clean up some of those loose points that most people either waste or never use. In addition, it's not like cleaning up those points is going to cost BRM any extra money, since it's already technically money that's been given out. With the exception of the exclusive freerools, it's not going to cost BRM anything.

I guess if they had to spend some money on videos/articles, but that's something that this site lacks as it is, and REALLY needs in my opinion. Random posts and discussions are great, but the site really fails to offer any value beyond that. Realistically, people mostly come here, get free bankrolls, and never come back. Adding strategy content will give people yet another reason to come back.

The other advantage is, it will encourage people to visit the forums and post more, which is also beneficial. Every thread we make gets indexed by google, which in turn brings more traffic to the site.

Retribution...love ur idea of expansion to make things more interesting and more beneficial to everyone here. There does seem to be a hard core of followers of BRM and maybe they could be VIP'ers to start with and get better benefits, perhaps the determining factor should be the number of reccomendations/affiliates you introduce? I think this has legs but needs plenty of thought by BRM.

I like the idea (if I'd be on the list, other wise I'd be the first to cry out lame. Lol). I could see it having potential but I think Jess is right, BRM likely won't swing that way.

Remember those mob points you get for posting? They're payment for keeping the forum active for new users, to encourage and help them. If all the regs move off to a premium section the newbs may feel left out, and less likely to stay and complete offers.

is an idea.
but the truth does not seem to serve to attract people, it would be for people that can pay and whatever, to stay and see favorability on the site. I do not think many people really want to be new or want to go to pay and deserts have privileges, but just my opinion. As they favor certain ... Smile

i think the idea itself is very "durable"- the precise model and benefits to the members is of course something that every member has it's own opinion on, but in general i believe there is some gunpowder in your idea. suggestion: free beer for platinum members please Big Smile

I think give an idea is form of our support to BRM, how to make the idea become profit is BRM task if they want to improve. To realize the idea is not easy of course, but I see some advantage for BRM :

1. Will more traffic to poker site from BRM members.
2. More active member involve.
3. Keep BRM members just play at BRM affiliate ( poker site ).

All is become bargaining power BRM to poker site.

Why no admin comment for this idea ? They no need it ? lol

It could be an good idea but it really need to thought over many time on how to implement it, etc...

It could be done but it need to be a good concept to make new members to join the premium "club".

it's a great idea but as many have pointed out, this is probably not going to be implemented since it's hard to find a way of actually making this beneficial for BRM.

However, if it is put to work, the payment could be done in a few different ways. This system comes to mind:
Pay with cash (using paypal or something similar): $5
Pay with points: 1000 points

The numbers are just suggestions but I think they're reasonable. And here's why I think it should be these prices:
$5 because I think it's a fair price.
1000 points since $5=500 points and if you don't want to pay with your own money, it should cost more so it'll be harder to reach those 5000 points for a cashout.

What do you guys think about this?

That's pretty much in line with what I was thinking. Again, I think one of the benefits of it would be that yes, your average user will never reach 5000 points. So on average, there are likely LOT'S of people that get frustrated and never use the few points they accumulated. They stop posting/doing offers, thus they don't come back. This idea would give people even more reasons to come back over and over, which in itself would make it worth it to BRM.

Plus, the odd player that actually pays with cash would add extra money to the site.

I think the most difficult initial hump for BRM to get over, would be finding good content to add.

Also I wasn't thinking of making any part of the forums exclusive, just the strategy videos/articles etc.

I don't like the idea of a monthly fee - scrub that.

Not sure how you'd manage who gets in and who doesnt though.

I don't like how a vast amount of the threads are "just cracked the safe" or "PS - it is definitely rigged i just lost my BR"

LOL!
99.99% people in here uses this site because there are from time to time 5$ NDB or 1000 to 1 chance to crack safe and win 20$ or to get 10cents for posting in forum. So, you expect that people here would pay fee to be premium members? Big Smile Yea, maybe 10 of us. Tops.
We couldnt even get 5 people playing in 2$ tourney on stars Big Smile Big Smile Big Smile

In fact, what are activity in this forum ? The best thing is share our experience each other.Of course member just do what you said, what else we can do ? The idea above will add activity in these site,lol.

Playing on stars ? not all member like play there, couldn't be standard !

Propose a new program and vote if want better.

Sounds like a good idea till you think about it, as jovi says most come here for free money of some sort.

I think most on this site come no where near to posting 1000 points per month so everyone will have to pay $5 per month to get i am elite member badge a few freerolls and some videos that are on youtube anyway. $5 is not much but i dont think i am going to pay it to get in some freerolls and watch youtube vids.

I do think it would be good to have a different section that people could put good poker vids of different kinds would be a very good thing for BRM as would be good for people who starting out to watch and give them less chance of blowing the free bankroll lol. The training section is pretty sparse and I am sure it would increase visitors to the site a lot if they had a area they could scan through all sorts of poker.
Have like sub sections in the training area/ poker vids for cash games with different stakes, tourney's that could fall in to standard or turbos and also for different games of poker omaha razz ect. BRM could do this in a way that the forum members do the work of putting the videos up and gives them no hassle. After a little while would end up a good little video library and it would give a lot more people who dont post a good reason to come here often.

It seems nice. Don’t know exactly the best way to achieve this level, if through affiliate member number or any other way (there are members that just can’t call more people to come here and perhaps desserve to have this level). It will always have to be a quantitative factor, or else there would have to be someone from BRM dedicated entirely to evaluate the quality of what is posted. Let’s wait for admin’s feedback.
