As a member who has just started posting recently (I got hooked when I was home recovering from an operation), I suggest that TMF offer free memberships (perhaps for a limited time) to new members.

I'm not necessarily referring to myself, as I've been a member for quite awhile, even though I wasn't posting during most of that time. I'm afraid that new people just won't be willing to pay. If you're up front with them from the beginning, and they realize that they have 90 days free (for example) they may like what they see and stay. I don't think letting them see the boards for 30 days is enough. One has to experience the thrill of having one of your posts answered in order to really fall in love with TMF.
