Why isn't a Premium Membership free?
It's very simple really, we charge a small fee for the use of our premium features to deter Scammers and other con-men from attempting to ruin the integrity of our amazing community. Your small investment goes towards investing in technologies which keep you safe on Senior Chatters and ensures our community remains secure, fun and enjoyable. It enables us to continue developing new and exciting features, which you as a premium member will always benefit from free of charge. Yes, we could plaster the whole site in advertising to generate revenue, but honestly, our members actually prefer to pay a small fee for the many benefits which a premium membership offers. Don't take our word for this though. Ask any of our premium members and they'll tell you the same.
