I guess I'll stick around.  I just signed up for premium.  I got my whole collection organized during my year off the site.  Got rid of a bunch of cards in the process.  Now re-entering from zero should be a LOT easier. Then I'll start trading.

Someday my cards may double in value and then be worth half of what I paid for them.
