Re: Important - Please Read

I think thats exactly the sort of resource related little perk that donating members would feel benefit from, without really affecting non members.

I have another suggestion along the same lines, possibly reduce the 30s enforced delay between searches for all paying members?

Have a nice (smoke free!) day

Re: Important - Please Read

Mr J, Ian and AO staff, you have now put me on a serious guilt trip.
I will in fact now join the club (at least Medio level), as I thoroughly believe that the future of AO now depends on these "donations".
Its the least I can do for the privilege of using AO for the past few years.

Thank you so much for your efforts

Re: Important - Please Read

Jeff & Ian... Well done for sticking with it and thanks for the huge efforts which have always been put into maintaining a great forum, and into the current upgrades etc.

It's good to see that the AO community spirit remains alive & well, and I still intend to sign up for club membership as soon as I receive the pay pal expanded use code for my credit card

Ian,

I don't want to put you off quitting smoking, but when I finally quit in 1976 it took a full 10 years to get to the point where I didn't occasionally fancy a smoke. I staged myself by blasting a few cigars during the festive seasons and found that progressively I could no longer inhale them without turning puce, and eventually the after-taste/hangovers became so evil that the very thought of smoking was repulsive

So it worked for me .... Stay with it

AM

WOT was never the same when it was only for us that 'bought our way in'. One question, will our club membership remain for all time, or is it an annual fee?

Re: Important - Please Read

I didn't even notice that there had been problems with some forum members due to the change. In fact, I don't even know who they are. (And ignorance is bliss, BTW.)

Therefore, I was surprised to see the forum open again to all members, part of the Club or not.

However, that hasn't stopped me from wanting to be part of the Club. I've been a member of AO for almost 5 years now, and have never, due to the country I live in, been able to make a contribution to it. This is my chance, and it's proving to be really difficult.

In short, Ian, or whoever is directly responsible for this, please let me pay thru another way, as PayPal isn't supported here in Guatemala. I want my Premio subscription.

Not only because of the benefits I get from it, like pagers and more Private Message allowances, but because AO has become a part of my life and I want to do my part to keep it going. I've made some real friends here on the site, and I've received LOADS of help when I've had the need.

To me, subscribing is the least I can do.

Plus I want to be able to finally have an animated avatar again.

No refund required here either, as far as smoking goes, once you've decided that it's just not for you then giving up is that much easier, every time you feel like a cigarette picture yourself on one of those electric runabouts because your blood circulation has packed up, no more Alfas!

Re: Important - Please Read

I am pleased to advise that we have standard credit card processing coming to you this week, we will continue to offer paypal as the second option of payment for our Alfa Romeo Club but it seems its not the easiest route.

Thank you to everyone so far that has supported the site. When the additional upgrades come through, we will make sure that you receive them automatically. We have used some of the funds raised to finance our IT vision and has also allowed us to design and print some official club stationary.

Many thanks to all! We will get there with all your help and support. Failure is not an option.

Ian

I have toggled off the displaying of my membership level and club number in my profile, but it still appears to be displayed?

Is this a known issue, and just not implemented yet?

It was a good idea btw

Tried ctrl-f5 with no change,
plus also the "delete all browser data" (cookies etc) option in IE 7.

Just wondering, can anybody else see "Premio" under my name?

Cheers,
TB
