    This is an official announcement regarding the ongoing hints and speculation about paid services here at WDF.

    For a fee of $10/year (USD; PayPal), members can have access to special features of WDF. Nonpaying members will still be able to use WDF just as they can now.

    Features:
    • theirname@wdf e-mail (you can change this "alias" as well). This is webmail only and due to its nature cannot be retrieved via a POP3 client. However it includes special ease-of-use features and vB code parsing.
    • Distinguished posts: subscribers will get an extra award added to the postbit and their name specially formatted in each post.
    • Turtle Dollars: subscribers will get 100 "turtle dollars" instantly added to their account
    • Ads: should ads ever run on WDF (which I have no plans for), subscribers won't see them
    • Images in signatures: subscribers will be allowed to use the [img] tag in their signature; this will be restricted to certain dimensions for the sake of the community but will allow advertising via images
    • Lock own threads: subscribers will be able to lock ("close") their own threads.


    The paid services is planned for launch May 20th, 2003. You may pay for multiple years in advance but not fractional years. Although unlikely, the launch would be delayed by difficulties with the custom-coded webmail system (all other aspects of subscriber services can be implemented already).

    While I recognize your generosity, please do not pay in advance: only when the services are launched at which I will provide a payment address.

    Payment can be made via PayPal, a major credit card, check, or cash (USD).

    Comments, requests, suggestions...?

    if you do place ads on here i think it should be at the part where you search, post a new thread and you have to wait a few seconds to be redirected

    Stupid question...what would be the difference between donations and paid services? Other than donators get the gratitude.
    If I've helped you out in any way, please pay it forward. My wife and I are walking for Autism Speaks. Please donate, and thanks.

    If someone helped you out, be sure to "Like" their post and/or help them in kind. The "Like" link is on the bottom right of each post, beside the "Share" link.
