While working on commissions tonight and messing around with some of PPXXX's page designs in Photoshop, I was thinking about what some of the member perks could be. Just some random ideas, some of which are probably bad:

--the first 5 people to sign up for 12-month memberships get a free commission to go along with their subscriptions
--memberships of at least 3 consecutive months get a free exclusive 11x17" poster print
--the first 25 people to sign up will get a high-res, colored pinup via email of a particular female character in an explicit pose thanking them for joining up. The image will be shared on the site, but not the version that the first 25 members will see.
--I was thinking of adding some kind of hidden code feature to the site where, inside of every gallery submission update of a given month, letters will be hidden inside that gallery. Over the course of a month, members could collect those letters and would have to arrange them to form a word. The first member to message me with that word would get a free commission request.

I don't know. Just some wild, half-assed ideas. lol Feel free to suggest. Nothing is set in stone.

Here's a journal entry where I mention what the pay models will likely be:

As for when I'll start on the ideas I mentioned, they'll sort of trickle onto the site over the course of weeks/months, with new ideas coming in all the time, either from myself or from members. Every member of the site will be able to make 2 free commission requests every week. At the end of the week I randomly select a request and do it for the site. It's essentially a chance at a free commission every week, for members.

Darn. Can't get the 12-month one. Oh well. I'll settle for being in the 25. :)

Hey, man, if you decide to be a member that would be awesome. I don't care which subscription package you choose to go with. :D

To be honest, I have no clue what the market even is for paysites so if I get 10 subscribers I'd be surprised. I don't know if tons of people will want to join so anyone who says they do is pretty awesome.

Dunno if I sent you about it, but I can help plug the site elsewhere on a high traffic site to help boost subscribers. It will require some work on your part. :)

Okay. Sounds good. Does this have to do with that one CG site? Was I supposed to do an interview for them? I almost forgot. lol

Considering i was already gonna get a yearly subscription, anything like this this would be great and again, pretty much "icing on the cake".

Hey, terrific! Yeah, the only caveat is that the commission has to be x-rated in some way and feature a female character. I look forward to hearing what your request will be!

Aw.. But i was gonna ask for Jabba-the-Hut doing his taxes! Bummer...
Seriously though, i look forward for the opening of the website and i've recommended your artwork to some friends already.
As far as a request/commission is concerned, if i do get one, i've no clue so far, guess i'd just give you a list of ideas and you pick whatever you find more interesting.

Thanks for referring the site! I am going to be in talks with another site, which has high traffic from what I hear, for some kind of affiliate program, so hopefully that will help with exposure and traffic, too!
