Become a Community Supporter!

Post#1 » Sun May 23, 2004 6:45 am

Dear Members,

For those of you who have helped support the website by becoming a 'Community Supporter', I thank you. Unfortunately there aren't that many of you, this is due to many reasons, obviously money being the larger one but we feel that £1 a month isn't too much to impose as a donation to help support us with the costs of running the website.

However, one of the other large problems was the system we were using called PayPal. After a thorough investigation we have found that many of the members have tried to become community supporters but during PayPal's registration process have had trouble and quit.

Solution? No more PayPal. All existing community members who signed-up using PayPal have had their subscriptions cancelled and are now normal members again. We have since implemented a secure payment provider that accepts all credit and debit cards. It is now much simpler to help us and become a community supporter...

Once logged in scroll to the bottom of your Account Home page, you will see a button that says "Upgrade Membership". Click-it, enter your card details and WOOHOO, done. You will be taken straight back to PT and get that cool little 'supporter' badge next to all your forum posts! Oh, and a big thank you from me :)

So please, those who can help us please do, it does make a difference.

In Fellowship,
The Council

Sorry I don't have a credit card and my parents would never let me use their and I don't have a job so my money I got for christmas and my birthday would run out and I'd have to undo my community membership!! But I have promised myself that when I get older and have a credit card I will become a community supporter!!! That is if this site is still around and I'm still interested in it!!!

Ehm, yeah, I sorta have the same problem here. I haven't asked my parents yet, but I will, and I suppose it should be allright if I pay them back (which I can, luckily). So I'll check back on this soon.

Being a Community Supporter is fun. Plus, everyone is doing it. At least the cool people..... lol. I don't think I could be considered cool, but I am a Supporter. My point it, be a supporter! (that took a needlessly involved series of words for such a small point!)

I'll second that one Stoney! It is great to see so many here becoming supporters, PT needed it!

How about adding a yearly rate of 12 pounds? Or specify an amount over 12 pounds?

I would feel more comfortable (here in the USA) doing this then doing a monthly deduction.

Isn't it possible to open an account purely to pay PT each month? You could pay in £12 and just set up the payment out for £1 per month.
