Forum Donations and Supporting Member Information
I've got a number of PMs and emails asking about helping out with forum cost, so I'm posting this information for everyone and making it a "Sticky".
If you chose to donate and help support the forum, your donation will be used to help pay for our ever increasing bandwidth costs, our dedicated server, domain registration, software licensing fees, and maintenance costs.
When your donation is received, your membership usergroup status will change to "Supporting Member".
Benefits for "Supporting Members" include:
1. Increased Avatar Size
2. Animated Avatar Uploads Allowed
3. Custom Title
4. Add attachments to post
5. Upload image attachments to forum server
6. Use of Signatures
7. Upload Signature images to forum server
8. Access to the Forum Gallery, which includes Album creation & uploading images
9. Full access to the Boolean Search feature.
10. Increased PM storage, from 20 messages to 200 messages
11. Access to the Supporting Member private forum area (Other Private areas to be added)
12. Access to the Blogs section and Blog creation
These benefits will be good for one year, then you'll need to renew your donation.
