Premium Area Promotion and Contests Announcements: Get $5 bucks at Amazon.com for signing up.

MoontownCafe.com is pleased to announce that its Premium Area has been updated and we are now offering a variety of contests and opportunities for Premium Members.

The Premium area was introduced in 2004 as a means of offering members greater access to more forums, useful information, activities, and contest in exchange for a nominal subion fee. Most forums were in fact, user-created and at one time, were bustling with core user activity. Since then, despite various attempts at revival, participation has dropped off and most of the forums lie dormant.

In March of this year, site founders Kyle and Jon got together in order to scrutinize the various forums and areas on the site and brainstorm some new ideas. We found that people love Moontown for various reasons, and some charitable souls were still purchasing subions to the Premium area, not so much as to see what lie beyond the veil, but to help us defray the expensive task of maintaining a large, moderately trafficked web site. In the end, we felt we owed it to those users to offer something more, and better.

Here’s what we’ve come up with:

• Nature Poetry Contest: Deadline June 24, 2011. Best poem wins a $5 Amazon.com Gift Card.

• Critique Challenge: Deadline May 21, 2011. Best critique to any poem in that particular forum wins featured poet for 7 days plus exposure in our newsletter.

• Flash Fiction Contest: Deadline May 6 2011: Best Flash Fiction wins 6 months of free access to our Premium Area, which will be tacked on to the end of your subion.

• Renga Contest: Deadline April 29, 2011. Best Renga receives $5 Amazon.com gift card plus featured poet spotlight for7 days.

I should also point out there is a Premium Area News and Opportunity Forum which I am beginning to fill with various opportunities for prizes in exchange for things like newsletter articles, forum management, and suggestions.

And of course, the erotica forum remains right where it sits.

This is only the beginning, we hope that you will come and join in on the fun! The Premium Area is not easy to find but we will work to make it more accessible, possibly by adding an easier-to-find link. In the meantime, here is the link:


From now until May 1, 2011, Anyone that pays for a year subion to the Premium Area will get a free $5 Amazon.com gift card in return. Sorry, we can do this only for paying members and not for those buying memberships with their points. All contests in the Premium area are open to Premium members only.
