Sounds good. I'll throw in some cash for a legitimate t-shirt if we can get them produced.

Last year at Bonnaroo I was asked hundreds of times - "What is shroomy.org?" heh...hand made shirts don't work too well when people are that out of their mind.

Don't see any reason to keep it secret, while there may be a few minor additions to this list, these are the main features which we're planning to offer. The introductory rate will probably be $5/month, with discounts for longer subscriptions.

  • SSL Encrypted Connections
    Connect to the main page and forums via SSL using your current username and password.
  • Advanced Image Manipulation
    Ability to turn off all offsite images (security)
    Ability to load all images through Coral Cache (hide your IP from the image server)
  • Special discounts for Shroomery Merchandise
    Receive a 10% discount on future Shroomery merchandise
  • "Shroomery Supporter" status under your name
    Special "S" flag similar to "M" and "A" flags for mods and admins
  • Maximum Upload Increase
    Maximum upload changed to 5 MB per day
  • Personalized username@shroomery.org email address
    User friendly secure web based client.
    pop3/smtp/imap support
  • Access to the Shroomery supporter forum
  • Custom Username Colors
    Select a custom color or gradient for your displayed username

Depending on interest in the supporter program, we may be adding encrypted private messages (with PGP key support) and user-created forums in the future. We're also very interested in any suggestions from users and we'll try to implement as many as we can.

Peace,

-Y

If an admin or a mod becomes a supporter, they lose the mod or admin tag eh?

I'm all for being a shroomery supporter and $5/month isn't so bad considering the wealth of knowledge I've received from this place and the ongoing camaraderie I share with other members, but...

I think the colored name and the "S" flag might be a bad idea. Notice I'm just saying it might be. Ya see, in most online forum communities I've been a part of your reg date was what established your worth in the community. It was a hierarchy of respect and those who had been members since near conception were always arrogant and displayed an air of "I'm better than you" to everyone else.

I don't see that here at the shroomery though. Someone can join today and be just as accepted and valued for what they say as someone with a reg date of 5 years ago. I don't want to see this change. I don't want to see those people with that nifty supporter flag by their colored name begin to act as if they are better than anyone else because they are a supporter. Do you see where I'm coming from with this? Like I said before, I'd love to be a shroomery supporter myself and I think all the other additions are wonderful. I also pride myself in having good foresight and I see this one small change bringing about a whole new "feel" to the community as a whole. I would hope that it doesn't happen but I just want to voice my concerns so at least if/when the shroomery does change, I can have a clear conscience in knowing that I shared with you what I saw to be something that could potentially cause a problem.

Thanks for your time.

We are still working that out actually.

Admins keep their A flag..

Mods while in a forum they mod have the S flag replaced with the M flag..

A and M override. We may just stack them so life is less confusing.

We will be using paypal while we finishing setup of other methods. I know a lot of people will not like that but it is a temporary solution. I'm sure we can work out other means such as money orders.

that and I can only read the first 2 letters of baraka and Vamps name is equally hard to see with my colour scheme (deluvian blue)
This is just going to mean I will have to highlight each supporter's name to see who they are if they usea gradient that approaches black :thumbdown:

With mods and admins, i've just memorized who has what avatar but if this is widespead, it's definately a dissincentive to stick around for too long (I need black background for low contrast... my eyes! my eyes! :eek: :smirk:)
I know you understand what I'm getting at :cool:
