Donating member status changes
The following changes will be made to the Donating Members system effective 1st October, 2002.
The existing benefits will be replaced by a range of scaled benefits for DM's as follows: (all prices in AU$)
Up to $29 = donating members forum access for 6 months and DM tag
$30 - $39 = Bigger avatar, DM tag, donating members forum access for 6 months
$40 - $49 = Avatar, DM tag, DM Forum access and email address for 6 months
Benefits will accrue during the 6 month period
$50 - $74 = All of above and 30 Mb web space for 6 months
$75 and more = All of above for 12 months
These changes are designed to provide an on-going revenue stream for the site that will help facilitate a secure future for FordForums in conjunction with other planned changes.
This will be effective on all existing accounts. Your account may be affected by these changes. If you donated on Jan 1, 2002 and have not donated since yout account will be placed back to registered user. There will be a 14 day grace period for all accounts to correct this issue. On Oct 14th I will be changing all accounts to show their new status. I will PM between now and then the members that are affected so that you know, if you have forgotten.
Changes also affect the amount of webspace that you have. Currently some folks will get a decrease. We will be allowing 30 days to correct this issue. I will have backups of the data and will remove to the point of making the account in correct standing.
I hope that i am not coming across as an ass, but the changes are necessary to facilitate a secure future.
If you have questions or concerns please start a new thread. I will answer these questions as they arise and in as timely a mannor as i can. Please remember at the time of this posting I am in the middle of a server move so my response will be a bit slower than usual.
