Premium Benefits

Custom Queues
The most exciting feature of the Premium Membership is the ability to create your own private queues. You can create several types of Queues and invite people to them. The queues can run on CC's credit system, or without credits, depending on what you and your critique partners prefer. The queues can be many-to-one which means you submit stories and other people critique them, or many-to-many, which means all the people in your crit group can submit stories and critique each other. This is the ideal setup for critique groups, or for a dedicated reader system for a novel. It's also the ideal system for those who prefer to keep their manuscripts private, only viewable by select few. You can even create a queue only viewable by yourself, and store your chapters there as backup.

Premium members have access to the Critique Circle Novel System, allowing them to structure their submissions into a single cohesive novel, providing them with a marvelous way to keep their readers interested and critting.

Revise story while it is in the queue
Premium Members can edit their stories while they're still in the Queue before they come up for review. Please note though that 'placeholders' are not allowed at Critique Circle.

Outlining workshop
With a premium membership you are given complete access to the massively useful Outlining Workshop. You are able to create an unlimted number of characters as well as create your own templates for character creations. You are even able to publish your templates so others can create characters with your help.

Full access to all tools
You are given full access to all the tools here at Critique Circle. You are, for example, able to create an unlimited number of characters in the character workshop, you're able to save names from the name generator, and use of the manuscript progress tool is unlimited.

Buddy List
Premium Members are able to utilize the Critique Circle's powerful buddylist feature. This enables you to receive notification if a friend of yours submits a story for review, solves an exercise, writes on the board, etc. This is for examples useful for private crit groups where the members don't have much time to socialize, but want to keep track of what their buddies are up to. Your buddies are also only a click away when sending messages. You can have up to 24 buddies on your list.

User Icons
When they sign up, Premium Members have the exclusive choice of being able to select a unique icon which identifies them in the forums and in the member directory. There are dozens of unique to choose from and the icon will be visible in the forums as a valued Premium Member.

Access to Premium Forums
The Premium Forums are exclusively for the use of Premium Members. There are often some great discussions taking place between the members that support the Critique Circle with donations.

Arrange Queues
Premium members can arrange their Queues any way they choose! Don't let CC's automatic Queue ordering bog your down, take charge of your own Queue arrangement! :)

Customizable Personal Info
Premium Members are able to add their own Personal Info categories, giving them ultimate control over their memberlist entry.

User statistics
Premium Members are able to view all sorts of fun statistical information about themselves such as number of forum posts and visits per week.

Huge message box
Premium Members have a message box which can handle up to 250 messages in either the inbox or the outbox (up to 500 in total). Additionally, messages never expire so you don't have to worry about losing messages when they've gotten a bit long in the tooth.

Unlimited number of books in the library
Premium Members do not have a restriction on how many books they can have in the library on their profile page. The sky's the limit.

Paragraph-A-Day tool
Premium Members are able to do some pretty cool things with the Paragraph-A-Day tool. They are able to add any amount of stories they want and are also able to invite other members to participate in their story writing.

Full Manuscript crit
The Full Manuscript Crit feature enables you to give and receive macro crits on an entire manuscript, at a credit price that you and your critter mutually agree upon.
Take a look at the FAQ entry for details on how to use this feature.

Premium Gold Benefits

All the benefits of a Premium Membership
Premium Gold members have all the benefits that Premium members have in addition to a bunch of features only available to Gold members.

Revise story while it is up for review
While both Premium and Premium Gold Members can edit their stories while they're still in the Queue only Premium Gold members can make minor edits to their stories while they are up for review. This can be an invaluable feature for getting rid of that misplaced comma or typo once you see the nitpicks rolling in.

No advertisements
Premium Gold members have the option to configure or even turn off advertisement completely through their settings panel. We do appreciate your visiting the sponsors from time to time though. It helps run CC

Unlimited message box
Never delete a single message on Critique Circle again. You can have as many messages as you want in your in- and outbox without having to worry about CC deleting any of them. This can be especially important when tracking conversations about a particular story.

Unlimited number of people in your personal forum
You can invite as many CC members as you want to your personal forum. You are no longer restricted by the 20-member maximum.

24 member Queues
Your custom queues are no longer limited to 8 members. You can have up to 3x24 member Queues on your account.

No archive of stories
All stories on CC might get archived after a certain period of time (couple of years) and removed from the site in order to conserve space. If you're an honoured member your stories don't get archived (unless you want to), so you can always access them.

Twice as many buddies
You can have up to 48 members on your buddy list instead of 24 which is the limit for Premium Members. Never lose track of a friend you've made on CC.

Lots of bookmarks
Premium Gold members can have up to four times the number of bookmarks that regular members do.
