Default Gold Membership - Annual Subscription

Hi All,

Whilst at the moment its quite well hidden away, I have added a feature to the site allowing you to subscribe as a Gold Member, on an annual, or tri-annual basis.

If you go to your UserCP, and down to the Paid Subscriptions option, you can sign up for a paid subscription through here.

Keep in mind this is completely optional. I have no intention of making the forums into a Pay-for-use service, and intend to keep it free for all.

So what does Gold Membership entitle you to?

- Message Storage space for 500 Private Messages (Up from 100)
- Ability to use Images in Signatures
- 10% off all Official z20soarer.org Merchandise.

I will be adding more benefits to this later on.

Costs are $10 AUD for 1 Years Membership, or $30 AUD for 3 Years Membership.

z20soarer.org is a Non-Profit Forum Community. Revenue raised through Gold Membership goes to help offset associated costs of running the site, such as licences, excess bandwidth, hosting and so forth. That way we support the forums for the long-term, ensuring that we keep it going technologically and financially

OK cool, I havent been through the API Payment process yet, did it work ok? It should have automatically changed your member base group to Gold Members.. Let me know if it hasnt and I'll manually do it.

shaz it might work on a diff system though if you do it that way. Like through the api paypal gateway it manages the annual renewals automatically for me, but if i manually move your account into the gold members group.. I won't get that reporting visibility. Sorry to inconvenience, but i want to manage membership on a standalone system from merchandise.

i've had an idea.

i'm going to offer a platinum subscription option i think to the forums. basically i thought about how many people waste their time signing up for bloody slow laggy photobucket crap to host their photos on and thought wouldn't it be smashing to offer a little webspace quota for you guys to host your pictures on.

therefore, i think i'll make the subscription cost for the platinum a reasonable AUD $20 annually..

i will provide 100mb of storage for this (via your own personal FTP login). this will for the interim include all traffic to it as well.

currently i have disabled functionality from external sites to access content on the z20soarer.org domain unless they come directly through the site (leech/hotlink protection). i may need to lift this for this option, but we'll see. i think it requires a bit of thought and planning before we implement it.

at this stage i'll only allow jpeg, gif, png, bmp, pdf and swf files to be hosted on it.

Well not everybody requires the feature of a gold member, that being a Highlighted username and more PM Space.
