Paid subscriptions

I've ditched the donation system and added a paid subscription option. Details are in the FAQ.

It's very beta, so I ask in advance to please be patient with any "quirks".

Re: Paid subscriptions

Tried it... seems to work fine.

Kinda miss the banner ads, though. Screen looks a little naked without them!

Re: Paid subscriptions

You know - I hadnt actually noticed that they'd gone - I guess I'm just too imune to advertising

Oh dear, I didn't notice either, but then husband shaved off moustache and a week later asked "notice anything different?" and I said "You somehow look a little cleaner, did you have a shower", to which he barked "I shaved my moe off, a week ago", lol

Re: Paid subscriptions

So far no hitches, which is amazing by itself. Actually, the hardest part was figuring out how to get that little "Patron" label to show.

And the ironic part is that I can't hide the ads for myself

Re: Paid subscriptions

Using Firefox, I've never even seen the ads. I guess it's the pop-up blocker?

Re: Paid subscriptions

hmmm, I also use firefox. The ads were there but with the good site design they blended in to the point they were not intrusive...to me anyway.

Re: Paid subscriptions

I thought there'd be an immediate run to use the new gallery space, but evidently not.

I didn't get adds either CJ Do you use AdBlock Plus with FF, if so that might explain. I also recommend using Addblock Filter Set G Updater, to keep those pesky adds at bay on most sites.

Re: Paid subscriptions

I have a question regarding the disclaimer in the subscription purchase box...

Quote:
Validity periods marked * indicate that purchasing this subscription is recurring, this means after the period is complete it will automatically be renewed.
Automatically renewed? Recurring?

I read this to mean after 12 months, my Pay Pal/credit card, whatever, will be charged again for another subscription. If that is the case then that means that someone would be holding my credit card/PayPal information in order to "automatically" renew me. I don't want to sound paranoid, but the presence of this disclaimer and the way it is worded is a bit of a put off. It lead me to come here and ask before completing the subscription.
