I don't play cards much (I'm a contractor, I don't need to gamble!) but when I hit a particularly good run, I always toss a little something over to the dealer as kind of a thank you. Same thing on this site. When I had a particularly good experience selling a weapon using the free infrastructure, I figured the least I could do was grab a Bronze membership to say thanks to those who put up the free site that allowed me to connect with a cool buyer. It was way more than I could get on a trade in and it was certainly less than the consignment fees from my LGS. Overall a win-win. Not going to get preachy, but now that Joe has decided to do this stuff full time, if you have had a good experience buying or selling on this site, please think about tipping the dealer and becoming a paid member.
