ok, this idea has been bounced around for awhile now and i finally have it in place, its a membership upgrade that gives you added features, this is a completely optional upgrade, nothing about your current membership will change if you do not upgrade, SM will always be free to join, the price of the upgrade will help pay for hosting and upgrades to the site to make it even better, one of the upgrades is with the gallery, the more pictures i allow the more bandwidth we use, bandwidth is what costs money on the internet, another of the upgrades is direct picture uploads, this means you can add a picture to the post as an attachment with out having to go thru the trouble of finding an image host, upload the pic, copy and paste code here and so on

this will be seperate from donations as the upgrade is tied more directly into the members added usage of these features, donations will help towards maintaining our forum software, gallery software, upgrades, add-ons (like chat!) and any additional expenses needed for the site

so enough talk for now, here are the added features in the upgrade...

SMC Member Upgrade

SpoiledMaltese.com Contributing Member Benefits

Full time use of our real time chat
Can upload pictures directly into the forum (no need to host it)
Gallery upgrade - can have 5 different albums
Gallery upgrade - can have 25 pictures in each album
Increased PM (Personal Message) storage to 200
Can add attachments to PM's
Personal photo upgrade (500kb, 800x600 pixels)
Can edit own topic title & description
Username will be shown in red
Receives the contributors star
$2.00 of each membership donated to a Maltese rescue
Access to 24/7 live chat
Personal Blog space - express your thoughts outside of the forum
Access to SMC Member only forum (Coming soon!)
and more. (Coming soon!)[/B]


you can upgrade by clicking the following link or by clicking on >My Controls>Purchase Paid Subscriptions

http://spoiledmaltese.com/forum/index.php?...&CODE=index

this is also through paypal using paypal funds, credit, debit card or check (takes longer to clear), if you do not do online payments you can PM me for snail mail address, the price is 20.00 for one year, at the end of the year you will revert back to a regular member group, at that time you can sign up again if you wish

Please let me know if you have any questions, and as new forum upgrades come out with new features I will add new features to the upgrade list, just a note I am still working out some bugs so please PM me after you sign up with the email address you use with paypal so I can be sure the upgrade goes through

Thanks everyone!

Thanks

Lexi - I actually found this the other night when I was trying to donate and said hey, never knew this was here...

Joe explained that he was testing it out...and I stumbled onto it and paid...The next morning he had it changed for me.

Thanks Joe - by the way...will we get a notice before we expire to renew...instead of just turning it off.

Hi Joe,

Thanks for the upgrade on the forum.

Does donating give you the same options as upgrading your membership.?
