Contributing Member Subscriptions

Hi everyone,

I just created a new Contributing Member subscription which will provide a lot of added new benefits for the folks here on AikiWeb:
  • A Contributing Member icon by your name:
  • Ability to post polls in the AikiWeb Forums
  • Private messages capacity increased from 70 to 150 messages
  • Avatar size increased from 50x50 to 70x70
  • Attachments totals increased from 3 megabytes to 6 megabytes
  • Profile picture size increased from 400x300 (100kb) to 800x600 (200kb)
  • Gallery upload limit increased from 3 megabytes (150kb each) to 6 megabytes (300kb each)
  • Private calendar enabled
  • And, of course, the satisfaction of supporting AikiWeb!

As a special to the first folks who become contributing members, I'm offering a 25% discount -- down from US$20 to US$15 for an entire year's worth of the above benefits! This offer ends next Tuesday, May 11th, so make sure you subscribe today!

To subscribe, simply head over to the subscriptions page:

http://www.aikiweb.com/forums/subscriptions.php

Your Contributing Member subscription will then be enabled within 15 minutes!

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Re: Contributing Member Subscriptions

Hi folks,

So far, it looks like there's only been a very small number of folks who have signed up to be a Contributing Member.

So, in hopes of making the offer a bit more enticing, I've decided to drop the price of an annual membership to $9.95! That's less than one dollar a month or less than 3 cents a day!

Please don't forget that by becoming a Contributing Member, not only are you receiving the benefits outlined in the first post of this thread but that you are helping support this website. Not to sound like an NPR pledge drive announcer, but your contributions will help keep running these Forums, the AikiWeb Dojo Search Engine, the reviews, the image gallery, news, the columns, and everything else you see here on this site. Also, I am hoping for some hardware upgrades in the near future to help speed things up...

(For folks who have already contributed, I have extended your "subscription" by six months...)

Thank you, everyone, for your consideration.

Re: Contributing Member Subscriptions

Hi everyone,

As a holiday special and to encourage all members to become a Contributing Member, I am now offering a special 20% discount. The annual membership is now only $7.95 from now through December 16th! That, my friends, is just barely two cents a day!

You can view all benefits of a Contrubing Membership here:

http://www.aikiweb.com/membership/

As before, I am accepting payments through PayPal, but I am now also accepting "regular" credit card payments(Visa, Mastercard, American Express) through Authorize.net as well. This hopefully means that many of you who were unable to pay using PayPal should be able to use your credit cards!

So, if you enjoy coming to AikiWeb every day to read the diverse and interesting thoughts on the Forums, gain insights into aikido by reading the monthly Columns, and search the world's most comprehensive dojo listings using the AikiWeb Dojo Search Engine, not to mention the image gallery, news, reviews, and everything else, please contribute! Your contributions will help keep AikiWeb running and will encourage new and exciting new features.

Thank you again, everyone, for your consideration.

Re: Contributing Member Subscriptions

Hi everyone,

I just wanted to thank the people who have become Contributing Members since my last announcement up above last week. Thank you!

I also wanted to take the time to remind everyone that the annual Contributing Membership is right now reduced by 20% to only $7.95 for an entire year! This discount will only be around until December 16th.

So, if you think AikiWeb has provided you with valuable information about dojo and seminars, connected you with the larger aikido community all across the world, or helped you gain insight into this great art of ours, please consider contributing.

You can get all of the details of a Contributing Membership here:

Thanks, everyone, and happy holidays.

Re: Contributing Member Subscriptions

Hey Jun,

How do find out when our subscription is nearing it's end so we can re-up?

Thanks,

Bronson

Re: Contributing Member Subscriptions

Hi Bronson,

The system should send you a piece of e-mail when your subscription is running out.

Thanks for asking,
