    I disagree. Use paypal. Some assclown over there will see the name of the forum and get bent outta shape.

    It’s the point that this forum was founded on the principle on not supporting anti 2a companies.

    Yeah, I know. It’s Just the principle of it. I do miss the subscribers section, a lot of fun in there. See, I’m giving plugs:)
    I support the forums with both views and post. At the end of the day that’s more important that the 25 bucks. Plus s lot of members don’t have the extra 25 bucks. If I have a extra 25 I’m gonna by some ammo or something.

    We use PP to help automate the payment system. There is no way we can keep track of membership doing it the way we did when the forum first started. Yes it sucks to support PP, but right now there is no other choice

    The account upgrades is in the same spot as before. Click your name at the top right, then hit Account Upgrades

    Maybe we don't see it because our renewal isn't due yet? Although, in the past, there were options for "lifetime", etc.

    That’s the same issue I reported. I should (or at least think I should) still see options for becoming a vendor/sponsor.

    I guess that's why paypal was one of the accepted forms of payment?

    That’s why I won’t say to much. I don’t know if they would kick me off.

    More members requested PP, and its integrated into XF. The manual entry was a pita to keep up on, so like @Butter said we can take a check.

    I'm in the same boat as @BBD280 . Been 'here' since the CSF days & have made some dear lifelong friends along the way, but I've never subscribed to a forum in my life. Just didn't occur to me, even though I'm friends with a lot of the staff.

    Then a new guy joined recently & immediately went Life Member & I gotta admit it kinda shamed me. I don't do a ton of buying or selling on here, but I have gotten so much from this forum & realized I was an asshole for not kickin' down on keepin' this place goin'.

    And, as a Supporting or Life Member you are now eligible for all of the giveaways that we have from time to time. Also, @Butter sends some free swag to all paid members. Be sure to give him your address if you've just signed up. He has just got some new stuff in and is sending it out in the next few days.
    Thanks to all of the new Supporting Members and also to all the ones that have been with us before. You help to keep this place up and running.

    My renewal didn't appear until a few hours after my membership actually expired.

    We need to tag all the leeches who post only in the classifieds. A couple of them have made major bank in the last several weeks and haven’t kicked anything back to the forum on which they are selling.

    I’ll be glad to if somebody sends me the names. :D

    Or anybody can just quote cubrock’s message and tag a member so there’s no confusion why they’re being mentioned.

    Just to stir the pot, I’ll tag some names...

    The first group shows up in the Top 20 when sorted by number of posts:
    @Ikarus1
    @Cowboy
    @DCGallim

    The second group shows up in the Top 20 when sorted by number of likes (some were also in the first list, so I didn’t tag them twice):
    @Sniffler
    @USMC6094
    @AR10ShooterinNC

    Happy Hump Day!! :D
