    Hello everyone! If anyone is interested in helping support the site we have a new option available:

    Site Supporter

    A site supporter is anyone who would like to donate a little bit to help keep the lights on around here. :D Eventually we hope to run the site entirely off membership support and direct sponsorships instead of outside advertising.

    You can become a Supporter at anytime by going to your "Account Upgrades" page here. The only payment option currently is PayPal. If you'd like to use a check or MO instead just send me a message and I'll get you an address. The price is just $15 a year, or less if you want to do multiple years.

    Supporters currently receive the following for helping support the site:

    The Feed - Access to a new feature called "The Feed. The feed is a page that shows every post and thread made on the site in real time. You can open one window and not miss anything! The Feed is only available to Supporters and it can be accessed in the top menu bar here:

    Custom User Title - Supporters are allowed to have custom "User Titles' which allows you to display a custom nickname, business, motto, slogan, etc. under your username on every post and listing. You can see the custom user title in the next image.

    Supporter Icon
    - Get a new icon under your name showing you’re a supporter!

    I'll add more features to the list as they become available. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to message me or use the Contact Us link at the bottom of the site.

    Thanks!

    I disagree. There is a distinct difference.
    A Paywall keeps you from viewing content and hinders or even prevents the user experience.
    This supporter option simply gives you a few minor perks as a thank you for the support and access to a feature that can improve the experience, but is not a necessity to use the site in a normal, expected fashion.

    +1. You are still "free" to utilize the site just as you do now.
