Thumbs up DGCR Premium Membership

I've been working on this for a while now and it's finally ready to be released. DGCR Premium gives you access to cool features that would otherwise be a little too intensive when it comes to calculations and database queries to release on a site-wide scale. Also, people had asked about donating to the site in the past but I was never a big fan of accepting donations without giving anything back. The premium memberships addresses that in a way.

Currently, a premium membership has the following benefits:
  • Access to real-time charts and graphs of your score stats
  • Customize those charts & graphs by date to see how you're doing by month (or by week!)
  • Access hole-by-hole break-downs to see who's scoring birdies and on which holes.
  • Hole-by-hole break-downs of your own stats with a variety of charts to boot!
  • The ability to export and download your rounds from your scorebook to your home PC.
  • Limit your course browsing to only courses you HAVEN'T played on the course and map browsers
  • Generate custom GPX files for your GPS using the map browser
  • Access to the Route Map. Going on a road trip? Plug in your start point and destination and see what courses are on the way. You can even add courses as stops and get turn-by-turn directions for the whole trip!
  • Use the Route Map to save and share road trips with your friends!
  • See a detailed list of all the course changes for the past week using the Premium Change Log
  • Break down recent reviews on the homepage so you only see your friends, the reviewers you follow or the courses near you!
  • Store up to 250 PMs
  • The ability to have images in your forum signature
  • Have a snazzy icon by your username on the site and forums (see crown by mine)
  • Get the Premium Member achievement in your profile
I was having a tough time deciding on the price and ended up settling on $25/year. I thought that was pretty fair, it ends up being like $2.08/month so skipping that soda/pop at Wendy's pays for the premium membership for a month. To get a premium membership you can go to your User CP and towards the bottom left you'll see a "Paid Subscriptions" or you can just click here.

As you can see, a majority of the premium features are currently scorebook related. There are additional premium features features planned for the future but I think there's plenty to be had right now (especially if you're even a moderate user of the scorebook). If nothing else, you can get the warm, fuzzy feeling of helping out the site

Also, to eliminate any confusion, the premium membership stuff in no way effects the development of other site features.

If you guys have any questions feel free to PM me or post them here. I've also attached a few screenshots of the new features below.
