Still working some things out, but a premium membership option will be available soon for MapForums.
The payment processor integration with Paypal is complete as is an order page MapForums Plus Membership Upgrade
Everyone who purchases MapPoint 2009 through us or purchased MapPoint 2006 from us in the past is entitled to six months access to the Plus membership.
Also, anyone who contributes a MapPoint tool or add-in or posts a useful data download will receive a free three month Plus membership.
(And yes , active participants / forum regulars are entitled to perpetual Premium memberships, e.g. if you've answered more than 30 questions in the past three months.)
Let me know if you have any questions. I hope it will encourage people to post lots of valuable tools and data and make the forum more exciting to use
