If you want to be a registerd user you should pay a subscription. Simple as that... The user base can be smaller,

Not only would teh user base be smaller, you might get fewer registrations. Had Perlmonks required a fee in order to register, I would not have registered, would not have discovered the real value of the site, and probably wouldn't have visited more than once or twice; as it stands, however, I now value the site and would pay a reasonable fee to be considered 'in good standing', provided I could do so by sending a check (as I do NOT do credit cards).

The standing could be orthogonal to the XP-based rank and go along with it; it could be possible to be a scribe in good standing, a monk in excellent standing, a saint but not in good standing, or cetera.
