Subscriptions - Help HWMF

Recommended Posts

Dear loyal members,

I've introduced a Subscription level to our Forum. It has been several months now without almost any Donation with exception of two regular contributing members however costs of our Forum hosting reached a new scale. I'm paying as off now €130 a month for hosting costs other costs not included (extra security, domain name..) earlier on it has been bearable since our Forum didn't was that big but since a few months more posts were regularly made as well as images posted. Since nothing gets deleted (or there has to be a very good reason) the size only increase and so do the member numbers and so on... I hope with the subscription to make these costs bearable and to improve the Forum. There have been a few downtime because of the size our server / database is getting and I've regularly to update it (increase memory which costs money) and when I moved away from a less reliable host to a dedicated Forum hosting service.

I want to thank all of you who made donations before. I hope via this new system to give you more in return. I've done raffles in the past, where I gave away items for free or for a little sum, I bought these from my own money etc. to give something in return. I'm planning when the Subscription are successful to do this again and a few little extras. I also want to improve the Forum as well since I currently do it all myself because of the monthly costs I already have to make. I can add plenty more advertisements to the forum to bear a little more of the costs but I'm choosing not to, in order to increase my user's usability of the forum. 

You can become a Forum Patron to support the Forum, which costs 17,50 EUR (ca. 21 USD) and is payable via PayPal and IBAN/BIC. If you do pay via IBAN/BIC, let me know afterwards!

Thanks big tile Aaron and Malcom for becoming a Platinum Contributor! Who will follow? Thanks in advance for your support.

 

Instead of donating (without using the Subscription method) I rather recommend you to buy one of the Subscriptions offered since that system works automatically. You'll receive the extras instantly such as the extra features, promotions in the store and permission to participate in (dedicated) Raffles in the near future..

I must admit, as I've said before this is the only forum I really enjoy. To show my "stuff" & to gain knowledge from the experts, a worth while (& fair price IMO). Let's keep the forum going. If it were lost due to costs it would be awful. Stewy

 

What  a  brilliant  post  Stewy :thumbsup:

Only the truth Jim. Here & WRF are the only forums where I post my stuff that I get. No egos, only assistance if I'm not quite up to speed. If it helps me & provides info for others here, I'm happy. To me it makes all the difference. Stewy
