    Would you like to supersize that?

    Too many forums pretend to have high quality content by locking that content behind a monthly rebill. They want you to worry about what you might be missing, and they place a $40 or even a $100 per month price tag on that fear. You sign up only to find that the staff members are AWOL and this promise land is only filled with all of the other paying users sharing sub-par content with each other... That has never sat too well with us, so once again we're going to shake up the status quo with BuSo Pro.

    For starters, there is no monthly or yearly fee for the BuSo Pro account upgrade. You pay once, then you're a BuSo Pro member for life.

    More importantly, BuSo Pro does not give you access to anything that's essential to get the full Builder Society experience. As a member of BuSo, you're already driving the luxury model, but maybe you'd like to add on the sports package and wood-grain interior?

    Our goal when designing BuSo Pro was to make it irresistible for anybody that visits Builder Society on a regular basis, yet at the same time to not have it detract from the forum experience of anyone that chooses not to upgrade. There's no "Battleroom" that only Pro members can access because we aren't in the business of charging for user generated content.

    As a BuSo Pro member, you can...
    • Edit your threads for up to 4 hours, instead of the usual 15 minutes.
    • Bypass the Orientation Room process entirely if you have a new account.
    • Earn a prestigious (and shiny) Badge that shows up below your username. (More on BuSo Badges here)
    • Various other odds and ends will be added occasionally like early access to new features, first dibbs on special offers and freebies, discounts from our partners, more customization options for your profile, and more!
    • Most importantly, you'll unlock the ability to use images in your signature.
    So for somebody who pops in every week or two, does a lot of lurking and doesn't really post much - the only reason you'd buy BuSo Pro is simply to support the forum and buy the admins a beer. Cheers. :smile:

    If you're a frequent visitor and you like it here, you find value in the community we're building, you're getting some use out of the BuSo Themes, you want an image in your signature to jazz it up, you can't resist those shiny Trophies and Badges, and everything else mentioned above, if we've managed to price BuSo Pro at a level that has you saying, "Hello, why not?!" then we've done our job.

    And if you're a seller in our Marketplace, it's an absolute no-brainer because BuSo Pro unlocks signature images that can link to your threads in the Marketplace.

    The cost of the BuSo Pro account upgrade is $15.
    Click here to upgrade, it will take about one minute.
    That's not $15/month. That's not $15/year. That's $15/forever.

    Honestly, i belong to the group who visits the forum often but doen't post much haha.
    btw BuSo is like a private forum that charges $xxx/month and has limited slots except in BuSo the registration is free and the quality of the threads is really good and from great people like Ryuzaki and CCarter and others(forgot name).
    My only complaint is that more payment method should have been set up.
