Our Membership Rates
Okay, we've covered pretty much everything that you need to know about memberships except for the Membership fees in detail. I won't bore you to death with why we think you should join us, so I'll just spill out the info here. :)
On October 28th, 2004, I announced that membership fees would be increasing to $25.00 a year, due to our increased costs (four times) over the past three years. Fractured is now running on two servers, believe it or not. It was not an easy decision to make, but it was one that needed to be done. To keep things in perspective, when Frugal Moms was up and running, her rates were $25.00 a year, as well. We managed to keep our rates lower, due to the fact that Douglas was able to do a lot of the coding and development of the site himself. We need to set ourselves up for a long term growth and marketing plan, and honestly expect our membership to easily reach the 1,000 mark before the end of 2006. In order to make the site more visible and to prepare ourselves for this phenomenal growth, we had to increase prices.
Currently active members (those who did not let their memberships lapse before the end of the year, and continue to remain an active member) are grandfathered in at the existing rate of $20.00 a year.
While we have several types of memberships available, there are only three price plans available. The first plan is a one year membership, the second plan is a two year membership and the third is a 1+1 membership, where you get one year for yourself, and you can sponsor someone else for one year.
One Year Membership: $12.50
Two Year Membership: $20.00
1+1 Membership: $20.00
Please do be aware that we do not, as a rule, offer scholarships, and that the sponsorships are generally reserved for existing members that participate actively in the site. If you absolutely must ask us about a sponsorship/scholarship, please use the "Contact Us" form under "About Us". Please be as detailed as possible, as we will be reviewing your request very heavily.
