But what could the non-US citizens choose, then?

::nods::  Exactly.  All I'm thinking of is extra privileges, and I'm not a big fan of making that a giveaway prize.  And we have enough non-US/Canada posters that this would be a big consideration.

On the overall issue of a Subscribers-Only area...  I guess it depends on how it's used, but I'm not seeing a useful way to implement it off the top of my head.  A Full-Members-esque discussion area strikes me as something likely to result in people who do have access tending to start threads outside of it in order not to leave people out, or likely to result in duplicate discussions when people outside the area want to talk about something that's been started inside the area.  (We had both of these problems to some extent with the Full Member setup, as I recall.)  Giveaways are a neat idea, but have some practical issues that may prevent their being something we can actually do...

I'm not actively against it, I'm jut having a hard time seeing a good way for it to fit into the forum setup.
