    Introducing Donations and Premium Membership!

    As a means of curbing forum costs, we are introducing a donation/subscription system here at the Consortium.

    There are 2 types of donations available:

    1. Premium subscription:


    • Premium subscriptions are geared toward users wanting to get the most out of the forums.
    • The benefits given to you are our way of saying thanks.
    • Unlocks special forum features, including the server resource-intensive on-site chat box!
      • Wind Trader priority support - Need help, but don't want the world to know about your methods? Contributors gain access to a private forum where they can get priority support and feedback directly from Wind Traders!
      • Ad-free forums - Browse the site ad-free! Say goodbye to those annoying adblockers!
      • Alpha access to new addons and projects - Just like Wind Traders, contributors will occasionally be given sneak-peak access to new addons and tools in development.
      • On-site chatbox - Chat up a storm with Wind Traders, site staff and other contributors!
      • Enhanced inbox capacity (500, up from 100).
      • Enhanced signature area - Allows you to put pictures in your signature.
      • Glowing username - The coolest look in town.
      • Highlighted threads - Give your threads that extra flare and attention. Highlighted threads get 87.24% more views!
      • Custom avatar - You request it, we make it.
      • Custom title - Want a cool, PG13 custom title? You request it, you get it.

    • More features to be added soon!


    2. One-time goodwill donation:
    • These are simply one-time donations, without the added perks. You still get our eternal gratitude, though!Members that have accumulated a large amount of reputation will be permanently bumped up to Ethereal Contributor status.

    Hm, not sure if's it's working as it should. For example choosing the "3/4 and subscribe for 12/6 months" options complains that the minimum amount to donate must be at least 5 USD. Also, I want another username before I do anything :P

    I just hope access to the IRC channel again is included in donator privileges :P

    EDIT: On a more constructive note I managed to selected 5 for 3, but still waiting for the second pm. Is this automated or manual?

    I screwed up the maths. Give me a sec.

    Alright fixed. Unfortunately, the mad deals are gone. Removed the default minimum donation amount.

    The subscription dropdown is still confusing to me. I thought I was donating $5/mo for 3 months (to try out the subscription features) but it turned out to be $5 every 3 months for a year (for a total of $20? Maybe?).

    Anyway, now, for example, there's "donate 18 and subscribe for 6 months". Is that:
    A) $18/mo for 6 months (total $108 per halfyear)
    B) $3/mo for 6 months (total $18 per halfyear)
    C) $18 once every 6 months (total $18 per halfyear)
    D) something else?

    Maybe I'm just thick right now and should get some sleep, but that dropdown could use some work.

    As I understand it @Erorus , "donate 18 and subscribe for 6 months" means you pay $18 for 6 months, mathematically resulting in $3/mo, but you pay for all 6 months at once with $18.

    Having said that, it's .. christ, it's actually 6 AM.

    Hey guys,I just tried to subscribe but it won't work because my paypal uses direct debit and not a credit card. If you can change the donation settings to also accept paypal via direct debit, I'd appreciate it... and of course, I'll donate. Thx & BestGutemann
