    Are you going to walk the walk? or just talk the talk?

    So after checking out some of the new upgrades to ClubDUB, I noticed the whole "Donations and Membership Upgrades" thing. We all love this site and support it, but I wanted to see how many people are willing to give money to it. So are you going to walk the walk or just talk the talk?

    I understand it takes money to run this joint, but honestly I think the site was fine just the way it was. I for one am not willing to pay a monthly fee for such basic features

    so are we now being refused certain things that we had before, like posting picks and having PMs? If so I wouldn't like to pay for having things taken away. Asking for support is different than requiring it for basic things.
    Hey guys, I'm back!!!

    Hey what's up guys!

    It took me the entire day to set that up yesterday and I'm glad that someone people already noticed it! The site is meant to be a free service for everyone, and the support from the vendors and the dealers have been sufficient. I had the donations and membership upgrades set up because lots of people have brought up the idea to me before, and because the software allows a subscription now I decided to give it a try.

    Rather than just having a big DONATIONS button sitting all over the website, I decided to create subscriptions to provide some incentives to members who do feel like that they want to contribute to the site. There's no restrictions imposed on the existing members, so everything you get with the membership upgrade is just a bonus. If you don't feel the desire to support the site, that's perfectly fine, and you're not at a disadvantage.

    I think PolarisSnT is just joking around about the smilies, I would never take away the smilies just to get people to support our site. Anyhow, let me know how this works out for you guys. Those of you who don't feel the need to make a donation, you will be banned in 2 days... heheh j/p, just keep helping each other out, enjoy the board, and try to make your purchases from the businesses that are supporting this forum.

    Downshift,

    Thanks for the support. I'm going to look into having a little banner or picture showing that you're a gold supporting member, hopefully you'll see it pop up within the next few days.

    Anytime! I really love this place. I have like 50 posts on NastySock.

    I was a member of clubRSX for 3year+ years and there they have premium membership that is paid that allows you access to another board called "The Bar" which is like Off Topic to the max. Unrated, etc.

    I am also a member of S2Ki.com (S2000) and for that site, when you pay for membership you are allowed to have images in your signature.

    Just some ideas.

    im sure a lot of people will agree with me... but one of the really big reasons I like this forum is because it isnt completely cluttered with sig banners (pictures) like other forums.. its just way too much on the eyes, I think the Avatars work just fine.

    keep it clean!


    but ya,
    I'll probably be donating a little money because I enjoy these forums a lot and I'd like to show a little support... maybe after Christmas is over... ive got a lot of spending to do.
    they call STi's STDs because everyone is getting them.

    I definitely will be donating some $$$ but probably not enough to increase my attachment allotment if any.

    Which really sucks because I'm hosting the ClubWRX Yearbook thread which has gobbled up all my attachment allotment! So not ony am I maxed out but I can't update the pictures unless I donate money.
