The only way that I can find to "enhance" the PM system is through an add-on for the board, and this is a paid add-on. I don't mind the fee - IF people think it would be useful. This particular software is licensed, either for 3 months, 1 year or for life. 19.95, 29.95 or 44.95. I think the lifetime choice would be best as I would hate to get used to something and then have it disappear. You guys tell me if you think these options are worth it.

What if you create a premium membership with a fee? I don't think you should donate any more of your money. I think it's fine as is.

I'm neutral on it... the existing PM system works fine, but I guess it's a little cumbersome and could be made easier.

40 bucks isn't much, but you spend money out of pocket for this board as it is.

Jim, as I was trying to read the options .... my eyes crossed and halfway through this is what I saw/heard

and decided that I like the way things are now, but could probably adapt if you changed it.

FWIW ... don't waste your money unless it's something that excites you.
