You should add "depends on the website" as an option... sure I'll pay to be a member of a website, but it's gotta have some kind of content I can't find elsewhere for free...

I might consider paying for VIP on certain sites, depending if they offer a service valuable enough to me.

I voted no way. Personally, I have no reason to go to a website that collects premiums. There are too many that don't with the same info.

I'm willing to make a donation to the forums I frequent but I've never paid for "forum".
I didn't vote cause the choices don't seem to fit for me.
And for whatever reason, not many people seem to vote at forums.
