    I would pay to have access to the search function when it is disabled in general, and to have less wait time between searches. I’m sure there are other people out there who would, as well.

    Hopefully with the new servers we will soon be adding the search function will not be an issue for a long time.

    Thanks for the offer though.

    As long as this thread is here, I'll toss in an idea that I've seen implememnted on other high-volume forums.

    The idea is that subscribers (donators) get a small amount of customization to their account that non-subscribers don't.

    For instance, at the arstechnica.com OpenForum, subscribers can customize their title (where it says "member" here).

    They also get an optional 'subscriber' tag added under their name.

    This type of thing is nice because it lets people feel like they are getting something, but it also has the advatage of not depriving current non-subscribers of features they currently don't have to pay for.

    Just a thought.
