Excellent idea, and well worth the price... :lol:BTW, when you get the time how about putting a Favicon on the server to replace the tacky IE favorites icon... :)BTW2, is the subscrption system setup to PM /email a reminder when a paid subscription is about to come due? If not, it might be very handy to have.

Thanks for the support, guys! Scotts especially thanks you since the hosting and such is on his credit card.Hightest - yes, I believe that the system will send an automated reminder. That is my understanding at least.

Yes, I'm sure yo'll need the $$ at some point.BTW, I just tried to U/L a personal photo (20KB JPG) and the system rejected it. Perhaps a setting needs to be checked?

Your group changes from 'member' to 'Patron' when you donate.

So how long does it take for a patron to be recognized? Anyone else "studying" for the BJCP? It was Belgian night tonite :)

In my case it was an immediate change - used PayPal and returned to the forum to see the Patron tag... :)

If Paypal payment was sent immediately, then the upgrade to Patron should also be immediate. If your Paypal account is funded by check or transfers that are delayed a day or two, then your Patron status is "pending" the completion of the transaction.

What I don't yet know is if the change from "pending" to "complete" is automatic here in the forum software. Hold on to your receipt and let us know if you aren't listed as a Patron within a 3 business days, or when you see the status change in your PayPal account.
