I would ride this pony into a sunset and a title card that says The End.

On FanFare, would it be possible to have the option to subscribe to a film club like you can subscribe to a tv show? [more inside]

Almost-paywalls, not quite subscription only.

This is just to say that I was disappointed I couldn't access the article linked in this FPP, and the link was essentially the entire FPP. [more inside]

thread subscriptions without RSS?

Advice/pony: I often see what promises to become an interesting thread, only to forget about it afterward. is there any way to collect recent activity from several threads, without commenting in them? Or is it just time to bite the bullet and learn this RSS rubbish?

Free Weather Underground subscription

FreeStuffFilter: I just looked at my subscription-paid Weather Underground page and noticed that the WU is letting me send free 1-year memberships to anybody I choose. I've already sent these to my family, and the WU keeps giving me more, so if anybody wants one, ping me and I'll send you one, until I run out or WU decides I've sent enough.

Self-Link Ahoy!

The 2011 post leads to a paid-subscription only article and indirectly through the comments ends up being a self-link. I'm sure it's accidental, but it shouldn't be there.

Slashdot offers subscriptions

Slashdot offers subscriptions. Considering their traffic, it's amazing they've held out this long. The interesting thing is that the model is based on usage. Five bucks for a thousand ad-free pageviews, and some options to specify where you will deal with seeing the ads. Pretty interesting setup, I think.

MoneyFilter for MetaFilter

MoFi4MeFi (MoneyFilter for MetaFilter): Last September, Matt asked the following: What if I killed [MeFi] sometime in the future, and brought it back, but you had to pay a small membership fee or some other 'high' barrier to entry? That'd keep the crowd small, manageable, and only those that really cared to discuss things would contribute. Would that make things better? Worse?

The discussion that followed did not necessarily address the question (a few positively responded to a subscriber-based MeFi). Maybe, this idea needs to be reviewed again. [more inside]

Are subscriber-only links ok?

Do posts to the main page that lead to a "Subscriber Login" page qualify for deletion? Also, what is the preferred form of notification?

Posting to sites requiring subscription?

What's the world view here on posting links to articles that are on a site that requires a paid subscription? Every once in a while, the Wall Street Journal publishes some interesting articles with a unique insight not quite duplicated on a non-subscription site. I'm just trying to avoid a wrist slap here and I couldn't find any threads concerning this using the search function.

Is there a trend towards subscription-required content, and what does this mean to us?

Subscription-based sites and weblogs: For better or for worse, Salon has long been a major staple of weblog news links, including front-page posts to MeFi. Now that their news and politics sections have become premium exclusives, will they still be useful to webloggers? And if this is the beginning of a trend towards more for-pay and less free content on the web, how will this affect link-based weblogs?
