New Registry Supporter Subscription and Member Group
« on: September 13, 2011, 09:33:45 pm »
This new version of SMF includes a new feature to set up automatic subscriptions for things like donations.  I just created a new "Registry Supporter" subscription that can be used by anyone who wishes to make a $25 donation that gets you a one-year membership in the "Registry Supporter" group.  I'd like to come up with some kind of tangible benefit, like perhaps a private membership forum for more open, uncensored and off-topic discussion, but I haven't yet figured out exactly what I want to do.  I'm open to suggestions.

You can find your paid subscription options in your forum profile on the "Actions" menu.  I've got it set up to use PayPal, which also allows credit card donations. Please let me know if you try it out and run into any problems.

I'm leaving the old "Registry Supporter" member group alone except for renaming it to "Original Registry Supporter" and changing the group icons so the supporter groups stand out a little more.  I don't want to ignore the past contributions that people have made.

Scott - worked smoothly for me, though my payment will show up as coming from my wife Paula due to the way our Paypal is set up.  Thanks for your hard work on the site and for the community you have created here.

Thanks for the donation and for trying it out, Jim.  I got the payment notice, but you don't seem to have been added to the new group.  Did you get redirected back to the site after leaving PayPal?  Was there any confirmation about being added to the group?  Does your profile show the paid subscription?

My profile shows "pending payment" and I did have the option to return to the group from Paypal.

Your looking for an "Actions" tab or menu item from the "Profile" menu item that you can find in the menu bar at the top of the forum, Kerry.  I don't know what "will it undetectable?" means.  Are you asking if others can see members of the group?  Yes, there will be icons visible in your posts.  if you're asking if any private forums will be visible the answer would be "no".

I've added a new "Registry Supporter" forum for people who take out subscriptions:

http://www.428cobrajet.org/forum/index.php/board,21.0.html

This is a private forum for subscribers only.  Please let me know if you're a subscriber and can't see it.  It would also be nice to know if you can see it and you're not a subscriber!

This is the place for off-topic, "water cooler"-like miscellaneous discussions that don't fit anywhere else.  General forum rules apply for content (no porn, for example).

I just moved this topic to the general discussion forum in the hope that more people will see it.

Please consider a forum subscription when you decide to make a donation to the registry project. Doing so will give you access to a "members only" section of the forum that I described in the post above. You can take out a subscription using the instructions I provided in the first post in this thread.

Thanks, please be sure to check out the registry supporter forum. I'm open to other ideas for subscription benefits - please clue me in if you have any.

I don't have a forum subscription with your user name on it, Gavin. Could you please send me a copy of whatever you have in-hand that describes your donation? You can find my email address in my profile.

Thanks, David. You know that you didn't create a forum subscription, right?
