A BRIEF OVERVIEW (WHY DO WE CHARGE TO REGISTER?)
In order to offset server costs and bandwidth bills, Something
Awful charges a one time only $9.95 fee for a basic forum account
As we all know, the Internet industry is pretty much a
craphole these days, and the only way website owners can break even is by
charging subscriptions. I want to keep the main site and content free of
charge, so your registrations and donations help keep both the forums and
main server alive, as well as keeping me out of prison for murdering
Some of you may have a problem with the notion of this website charging people
for an account. You may say that other forums are free and don't cost anything
to register, so there's absolutely no reason for you to pay money for an
account here. That is fine by me; if you don't want to pay, I will not ask you
to pay. It is a decision completely up to you. The SA forums, however, are a
thriving community full of what I feel to be the funniest crowd on the
Internet, moderated by some of the best mods to ever squirt out of somebody's
womb. We're troll-free and provide the best viewer-created content out of any
website. If you feel you would like to join us, I freely invite you to do so.
If you would not like to join or take offense to paying money for a forum
account, I freely invite you to not do so. The choice is up to you.
HOW TO REGISTER AN ACCOUNT:
By registering an account, the
user agrees to abide by all the forum rules and regulations.
If the user
breaks any forum rule (as determined by a Something Awful Forums moderator
or admin), their account could be banned and will need to register a new account.
User must read the forum rules before registering
, as the act of registration represents
the user's agreement to all stated rules and regulations and signifies the
user's intent to abide by these rules.
