When I am explaining to a non-Gold Member where various menus, etc. are located on the main page (for example, "left column, about halfway down page"), does that person see something different than I do (I'm a Gold Member)?

I am not a gold member. So what does the gold-member homepage look like?

The pages are largely the same.

Gold members occasionally get new features and things, and no ads or popups on any pages.

Also, gold members get a more up-to-date view of the FunTrivia databases (pages are cached for non-gold members in order to improve the performance of the server).

You showed the gold members the page of non-golds but as I am a non-gold so I want to see the main page of a gold member. Is it possible?

Yes, this is possible.

Become a gold member.

Muhammad, all you need to do is become a gold member, and besides, if they are virtually the same, it really doesn't matter, does it?

Yes, that's why it's only for gold members. Why would we give something for free that other people have to pay for?

Just click on 'Become a gold member' on the main page. If I remember right, it will show you what extra features you get with gold membership. The 'My Stats and Quizzes' page is where you would see the difference between non-gold and gold, because of the extra options. For me it's worth having the gold membership just to know which quizzes I've already taken.
