    The Admin Zone has offered Supporting Memberships (Premium Members) for quite a while, and in fact many of our members have supported us in this way. Premium Members receive the ability to post non-business ads in the Classified Forum, increased storage (attachments, avatars), increased PM storage, special username color, and a listing on the Forum Leader Page.

    As I've said before, all advertising revenue generated on TAZ has been, and will continue to be for the forseeable future, reinvested into the site - no profits are taken. In an effort to increase our revenues, which directly translates into increased traffic and more members, I'd like our members to consider becoming Supporting Members.

    Is PayPal the only way to contribute to the site? We don't have PayPal at our country, & I'm willing to support TAZ. Any clues?

    Am I reading it right that I can either pay $120 a year by paying monthly, or $15 a year, by paying yearly?

    Unfortunately, i'd have to pay by credit card, and personal paypal accounts only take 2 credit card payments a year :unhunh:

    Can someone explain what non-business ad's 'are'?

    What would you want to post in there?

    Like 'I need to make $20 fast, give me a job' type threads?

    Yes, I'm simple

    I thought it would of been the other way round.

    Thank you :)

    I had the same question. I was interested in selling my scripts, but didn't want to offend anyone.

    Hi Sandman,

    I have a couple of quick questions for you or anyone who can answer.

    1) Is this membership/support thing working well for you and the forum?

    2) And is there any advantage of signing up for a year vs. say 5 years?

    I'd love to support the community. It's done wonders for me as it's probably done for many here, and I'd like to see it continue to give the best service it can.

    3) Btw, something else occured to me, does the Admin Zone forums sponsor other forums? Or os it a paid for link type of thing as in your third option?

    Just currious on this last question. ;)

    Thanks, and all the best ...


    Mary

    The Premium Memberships have been helpful but not amazingly so. I think it's time to try to improve them a bit. :)

    I've added a 5 year Premium Member option.

    I'm not sure what you mean by this. :confused:

    I'm going to try to add a few more perks to the Premium Memberships, such as fewer visible ads and userbars (350 X 19 signature bars).

    I would like to order the 1 Month subscription but surprised to see it $10 vs the $15/yr.

    Can you readjust that? Shouldn't it be like $2 or $3?
